So, I promise not to get off topic too often, but this is a little thing I just couldn’t avoid.
Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Having seen the full trailer now, I just want to cry. This movie is based on one of the best animated series I’ve ever seen. The show had humor, drama, coming-of-age bits, romance and complicated, very adult situations for children to find themselves in. This is one of those ‘cartoons’ that, like a Pixar movie, shows that even a story about talking dogs and a flying house is capable of being beautiful and touching the hearts of adults, while still appealing to children. I resisted watching Avatar for a long time, because I didn’t want another disappointment from a cartoon series. When I finally broke down, I ended up watching all of first season in about a day. I was enchanted. In a way I hadn’t been since I was a kid myself.
But this movie looks terrible. The trailer actually convinces me that I don’t want to see it. Go check out the official site and then come back and let me know what you think. Is it just me?
