Some early pictures are out for M Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender live action movie based on the amazing animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Ang played by Noah Ringer is shown above while Prince Zuko played by Dev Patel is shown below.
I wish the arrow on Angs head was more visiable. The look of the arrow is something that could be easily adjusted in editing and in post production.
I also wonder why Zuko does not have his scar. It's possible that this photo is set in the time line before he receives the burn scar. It is also possible that the scar effect will be added digitally in editing though that theroy seems unlikely because of the costs and challange level it would add to the movie over doing it in makeup.
Early pictures are nice to have but they are not always representational of the final product. My mind goes to Dragonball Z movie where the earliy pictures looked bad but in the movie they looked great... and so I have hope.
Knowing that Dev Patel has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do gives me hope for watching live action Prince Zuko who's animated counterpart relied on his martial arts abilities in combat as much as his firebending.
