The details of the live-action series will follow the same journey of Aang and his friends in the animated show. The world of Avatar: The Last Airbender is divided into four nations: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Each nation has a few select ‘benders’, meaning people who can control these elements and are skilled in martial arts. The only one who can control all four elements is the Avatar.

The first batch of the cast for Avatar: The Last Airbender was announced in August 2021, and they include Gordon Cormier as Aang, Kiawentiio Tarbell as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, and Dallas Liu as Zuko. Other important roles have also been filled in, which include Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh, Lim Kay Siu as Gyatso, Ken Leung as Commander Zhao, and Elizabeth Yu as Azula.
