Arguably one of the greatest animated shows to be ever made, Avatar The Last Airbender has reached a cult like status since it aired its first episode. Aang, Sokka, Zuko, Toph, and Katara are more or less household names now. Every pop culture enthusiast worth his or her salt at least knows Avatar and its characters. If you are a fan of Avatar The Last Airbender, we have some good news for you. A special digital event is happening next week where we will see the original cast members from the show reunite after a long time.
Avatar The Last Airbender and Avatar: The Legend Of Korra are two iconic and incredibly popular shows that remain famous to this day. It’s simple story-telling combined with multi-layered characters and a complex narrative were one of the primary reasons it struck a chord. Even though the animation is dated, new generations of fans keep flocking back to the show because of its edifying brilliance.
Another reason of the show’s success has been the stellar performance delivered by the show’s voice actors. The young voice cast that lent their voices for the show’s major characters showed an uncanny level of chemistry and talent. Toph, Zuko, Katara, Aang, and Sokka achieved instant undying fame.
We will see these voice actors make a return in a grand reunion next week. This was officially announced by one of the original voice actors from Avatar The Last Airbender. Dante Basco, who voiced Prince Zuko in the series, took to Twitter to announce the reunion of the cast members.
This was Basco’s Official tweet:

The online event will happen at 3:00 PM PST on the 9th of January, 2021. It will be run via StageIt. You can follow the link here to watch the event.
The Voice actors that confirmed to be a part of this digital event include Grey Griffin, the Voice of Azula, and Michaela Murphy, who voiced Toph for the show. Jack De Sena, Cricket Leigh, and Olivia Hack, who voiced Sokka, Mai, and Ty Lee respectively are also all set to appear.
The voice actors from Avatar the Last Airbender have remained quite busy after the show’s final season. Jack De Sena voices the lead character in The Dragon Prince, a Netflix Original. Dante Basco and Grey Griffin voiced prominent characters in Avatar: The Legend Of Korra, the sequel series to The Last Airbender. But there are a few actors that are still missing.
The two most prominent voice actors who are missing from the online event are Tyler Eisen and Mae Whitman. Eisen voiced Aang in the show. He has since stepped out of his acting career and has refrained to be a part of other projects in the industry. Mae Whitman has made a career in the live action genre. She has starred in movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and in the TV Series Good Girls. Hopefully these two names will make it to the list of Avatar Voice Actors appearing for the event by the 9th of this month.
Despite the old cast members having a reunion, the Avatar franchise has hit another dead end. Netflix’s plans for an Avatar series is still in development hell. For now, Avatar fans have to make do with comics and novels that are expanding upon the current universe.
