At the risk of outing myself as a serious dork, Avatar the Last Airbender is being made into a live action movie. The show is a cartoon (my mother deprived me of cartoons as a child. To make up for this deficiency I now watch shows meant for 12 year old boys in my spare time). They are going to RUIN it. I just, I don't think it will translate. The kung fu fighting goodness and cheesy characters will just not work unless they are drawn. How is Ang going to make all those sweet air bending moves? Yes, special effects, I know, I know. But it won't be the same.

Will I still go see the movie when it comes out in 2010 when I am a 23 year old women............(That elongated ellipse was for the mini panic attack I just had typing 23)


*I was going to find some really sweet photos of Avatar to post here to woo all three of four of you who read this to **go watch the show immediately, but I'm at work and it would look really odd if someone saw me looking through cartoon photos.

**Pretty good attempt at subliminal messaging, yes?

Agreed. I heard that M. Night Shyamalan would be directing too, which makes an even bigger joke to me.
