Last Star from Airbenderremake (basically) says the new show will be better than the movie
“I think people will be very excited when they see the show,” Ambudkar told CBR. “It’s super well done. Everyone on the show loves it. They will do it justice.
While he respects M. Night Shyamalan’s intent, Ambudkar believes the Netflix version is inherently different from the movie :
Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai
Daniel Dae Kim, 54, of Hawaii Five-0 and Lost Fame will play Ozai, the tyrant leader of the Fire Nation.
