For those of you who may be fans of the Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first of the live action trilogy is due out in theaters next month.

I have been a long-time fan of the animated series, and have been watching the latest news at http://www.lastairbenderfans.com. This is looking to be quite true to the series, and just plain awesome to boot! I'm totally seeing it opening night.

Never saw the cartoon but that movie looks wicked. I am so excited, I am more excited for that then Twilight Eclips.

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

I saw this a few weeks ago. Shaymalan totally butchered it. Don't waste your time or money.

Yes, definitely stick with the cartoon series. I can recommend that whole-heartedly. :)

Devils advocate here, I saw it and thought it was very good, but then I have never seen it as a cartoon. My son who watches it religiously says they mucked it up,

My niece told me that if you're a fan of the cartoon series you'll hate the movie. If you've never seen the series the movie will probably be somewhat enjoyable. I may take my son since neither of us are familiar with the series.

I've seen a fair amount of the cartoon series, and I went and saw the midnight opening of this. I enjoyed it. Although there was a bit to be desired but.. *shrug* I wouldn't say 'don't see it'

I'm a big fan of the animated series (and they're doing another season!!), and I thought the film was ok. It definitely is much slower, and grandiose than the animated series, which is a different feeling than the faster-paced children's cartoon. I'm interested if anyone who hasn't seen the cartoon thinks the action is a bit slow to get started.
