Exciting Teaser Trailer For AVATAR THE LAST AIR BENDER: AGNI KAI Fan Film From Re: Anime
We are getting closer to the release of Re: Anime’s live-action fan film Avatar The Last Airbender: Agni Kai. Based on the name and the pictures we’ve seen, I think it’s safe to assume that it will focus on the final fight between Zuko and Katara versus Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I’m getting really excited for it.
The fan film is being produced by Re: Anime creator Nik Shaw who says, “We truly believe that all animated content that is being translated to live-action should be created by fans for the fans. That is our mission statement and we want to prove to Netflix that we have the passion, vision and fan perspective to bring Avatar to the live action arena in a way that will please both long- time fans as well as brand new audiences.”
Josh Mabie, the director of the film explains why they wanted Zuko in the film saying, “We at Re:Anime have a deep connection to Avatar and this battle in particular. When we first set out to adapt Avatar to live action we knew we had to do something that would blow people away. Due to Zuko’s explosive fire-bending and dramatic character arc from villain to savior, he is one of the most complex and interesting characters in the Avatar Universe making him a perfect protagonist for our short.”
The stars of the film include Yasmin Kassim as Katara, Nikki Soohoo as Azula, and Yoshi Sudarso as Zuko. What do you think? Will this help show Netflix that Re: Anime should be considered as work on the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series begins?
I just can’t wait to see the whole film!
