The Cast For Live-Action AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER Netflix Series Revealed.
Netflix has announced the main cast for its upcoming live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series. Gordon Cormier (Gabby Duran and the Unsittables), Kiawentiio (Beans), Ian Ousley (Physical), and Dallas Liu (PEN15) have been cast as series regulars.
Here are the details on the characters that the actors will be playing:
- GORDON CORMIER is AANG (12), a fearless and fun-loving twelve-year-old who just happens to be the Avatar, master of all four elements and the keeper of balance and peace in the world. An airbending prodigy, Aang is a reluctant hero, struggling to deal with the burden of his duties while still holding on to his adventurous and playful nature.
- KIAWENTIIO is KATARA (14), a determined and hopeful waterbender, the last in her small village. Though only fourteen, she’s already endured great personal tragedy, which has held her back from rising to her true potential, though it’s never dimmed her warm and caring spirit.
- IAN OUSLEY is SOKKA (16), Katara’s sardonic and resourceful 16-year-old brother. Outwardly confident, even brash, he takes his responsibility as the leader of his tribe seriously, despite his inner doubts over his warrior skills… doubts that he masks with his wit and deadpan sense of humor.
- DALLAS LIU is ZUKO (17), a skilled firebender and the intense and guarded Crown Prince of the Fire Nation. Currently roaming the world in exile, he’s on an obsessive quest to capture the Avatar because he believes that is the only way to reclaim his life and live up to the demands of his cruel and controlling father, the Fire Lord.
The creative team behind the series has also been revealed with Albert Kim (Sleepy Hollow) writing the series and acting as showrunner. Kim will also executive produce the show alongside Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore, Michael Goi, and Roseanne Liang. The directors of the series include Jabar Raisani, Goi, and Liang.
