It took me a depressingly long time to work out what that article was really about.

Cassandra-like, I predict doom upon this project.

I mean, come on. Live action bending? Doesn't that just throw up power-ranger-esque mental images of weird cgi effects and mock kung fu? Speaking of cgi, what about Momo and Appa?

The reason Avatar works is because it's a cartoon. That kind of action, character design, and world to me just does not translate well onto a live-action setting. Can you imagine, for example, Zuko and Katara's fight in Seige of the North in live action? Belief needs to be suspended in order for the concept to work and you're not going to have that in a live-action film. There is also the inescapable rule that live-action remakes are always highly dodgy.

I am also worried about the director choice, especially as he is writing and producing it as well (where are Mike and Bryan in this?) but not having seen any of Shyamalan's films I'm not really qualified to talk about that.

Overall though, my reaction all evening has been DO NOT WANT. DO NOT WANT AT ALL.
