And M. Night Shyamalan is involved. Avatar is one of my current favourite series. But I can't imagine how it would work in live action. Hopefully M. Night will get it right.
You're a poet and you don't know it.
That's bad road, most cartoon movies of that sort don't translate well into live action. I just can't imagine aspects of the cartoon working well in a Live Action movie.
It's MIGHT work for a TV show, I mean Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon's not too bad. Bad a live action movie would blow. I mean they scrapped the idea of a Live Action Dragonball Z show, so hopefully they'll scrap this.
An Avatar movie would be a great idea, just keep it as a cartoon
then my bet is you've never seen... Dragonball *live action*
Dragonball Live Action?!?!
Thankfully no I haven't and thankfully I won't even look it up on youtube
Actually I think Avatar could work as a live action movie but I think its a bit soon to send a reimagined version to the big screen. I can't wait to see what the twist will be.
The story isn't even halfway finished. Way too soon for a live movie.
I agree with Flamepanther....
Still it might be awesome to see people using all those mad martial arts moves.....
Who would they have for Aang though?
My favorite phrase to see here
Yes, it would
Dunno. I'd like it if all of the characters resembled the nationalities they're based on in the show, e.g. Tibetan, Inuit, Chinese, etc.
I can see some sense in this. It seems like Nick is striking while the iron is hot. The formula for the Avatar animated series is pretty solid. Kid martial arts movies have done well (with varying degrees of success) in the past. Additionally, Avatar takes place in a fictional world geared towards a young audience. At least to me, that's a relative recipe for success.
I don't know anything about the story or mythos at all (never seen the show - but i do think the character designs are rad), but wouldn't the story be pretty much done by the time a movie just announced is in theatres ~ it'll be at least 2-3 years ~ and the kids watchign i now would probably be just enough older to approve what i assume wouldbe a slightly more mature take on it...
(again, having not watched it i don't know how mature or not it even is...)
We'll probably see it. My 6 year old son loves the show. Heck, my wife and I like it too.
The current season isn't done yet, and there are at least two more seasons left to go. It'll be hard to plan the movie without a finished story to work from. I'm hoping they go to the creators of the show about that. It would be difficult to make Avatar much more mature and still consider it a kids' movie. At present, the show does a good job of concentrating on not one, but two target audiences: children and teenagers. Make it more mature than a teen show and, well, there go the kids.
I just hope M Night doesn't screw it up. He's not exactly what I would call a good director. Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were ok, but the rest, meh.
oh... but it is even dubbed! even the names are dubbed! *goku = monkey boy*
plus goku's played by a girl
Don't care for the series at all really, don't see how a live action version of it could possible be good.
Wasnt "the crossroads of destiny" the season 2 finally?
Ah, looks like it was the finale. I didn't realize we'd had twenty episodes in season 2 already. Wow, not nearly as exciting as the season 1 finale, in that case.
And the series is still only halfway through, assuming it stops at four seasons.
Technically, it's not even Dragonball. It's an OLD movie (30-20 years old I think) that was based on the same legend, with someone else as the main character ("Goku" was just a sidecharacter).
