M. Night Shyamalan Unveils "The Last Airbender"

Avatar book 1 M. Night Shyamalan unveiled some information pertaining his newest project a film version of the Nickelodeon show Avatar The Last Airbender. I'm very excited about this movie. The show is amazing: well written, well drawn, containing compelling content & messages.

Shyamalan is planning the first movie release for July 2, 2010 with two more to follow. A Trilogy! I'm guessing movie 1 Water, movie 2 Earth, movie 3 Fire.

Most of the $250 million budget is slated to be spent on CGI special effects. This is cool and gives me hope that they will take time to make the bending abilities look really nice. The series of hand-drawn landscapes that were presented have a more traditional appearance rather then the TV series anime style.
