The teaser trailer for The Last Airbender has premiered online, and though it doesn’t have Jackson Rathbone in the short (very short) trailer, it looks pretty awesome.
The Last Airbender will be in theatres July 2, 2010 and is directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
And here’s a quick recap for those of you who might not know what the movie is all about:
Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire.
The Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war against the other three nations. The film’s hero, the reluctant young Aang (Noah Ringer), is the “Last Airbender” — the Avatar who, according to prophecy, has the ability to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. Dev Patel plays Prince Zuko, prince of the Fire Nation.
