Avatar: The Last Airbender Live-Action Netflix Series Casts Prey Star Amber Midthunder as Princess Yue

Amber Midthunder

Prey is perhaps one of the biggest revelations in movies this year, with the prequel to the Predator franchise being lauded as a masterpiece. The slow burn and buildup to an enthralling battle in the movie were brilliant, and it was Amber Midthunder’s breathtaking performance in the movie that carried those scenes.

Midthunder’s performance as Naru in the movie surely earned her a spotlight in the industry for quite a while, and that spotlight has now resulted in her being cast into a live-action adaptation based on one of the most popular TV show of all time – Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Amber Midthunder Will Play Princess Yue In The Upcoming Live-Action Avatar Series

Avatar: The Last Airbender was a game-changing show of its time when it first aired on Nickelodeon back in 2005, with most of its applause pointed towards the show touching on concepts rarely introduced in TV shows for the younger generations.

As of today, the TV series is considered a cult-classic show, and multiple media publications naming it as one of the greatest shows of all-time only help build its repute.

Now Netflix has picked up on how loved the TV series is, and has set its sights on a live-action adaptation of the TV series.

Joining the cast of the Netflix adaptation will be Prey star Amber Midthunder, who will take on the role of Princess Yue. The other new cast member joining Midthunder will be Arden Cho as the bounty hunter June.

It’s been quite the journey for Amber Midthunder who is finally getting the recognition she deserves after shelling out brilliant performances in TV shows like Legion and Roswell, New Mexico.

Let’s hope she can put in a brilliant performance as Princess Yue in the upcoming live-action TV series, regardless of Yue being a supporting character.

Fans Are Rallying Against The Avatar Live-Action TV Series

Live-action adaptations of popular cartoons, animes, books, and so on have always been a mixed bag- with Dragonball: Evolution being a prime example of how NOT to make a live-action adaptation of a popular franchise.

Netflix is one of the prime suspects when it comes to horrible live-action adaptations- the Cowboy Bebop TV series, the Death Note TV series, and so on have built up a bad name for the streaming service giant.

Louder for the people in the back! –

In all fairness, he has a point-

Fans of the popular TV series can only cross their fingers in the hope that Netflix can pull something off with this live-action adaptation, no matter how many times Netflix has messed up in its attempts.

Avatar: The Last Airbender does not have a fixed release date, but it’ll surely release on Netflix.
