Not a good omen for Last Airbender Trilogy.
"Night will finish this movie, then the script and then we’ll prepare for the next one. I think it’ll probably happen over six years." Said producer Frank Marshall
I love Avatar: The Last Airbender the story, characters, and setting are all just amazing. I was really excited about a movie version of the show, unfortunately that excitement is being replaced with concerns.
The latest concern is over the child actors growing up too much before the entire story is told. The entire story line takes place over approximately a one year period. This does not give much time for the children to grow up, which would happen over the 6 years it is now expecting them to take to film the three movies. I'm worried we will get an amazing first movie (a plus) but that the other ones will look progressively weird or require recasting to keep the characters at their respective heights.
I'm not going to give up on this project yet and have hope that they have a production break through or no growth spurts in order to finish the project. After all the glory of movie magic is the ability to make people appear like something completely different from their real life selves.
