Last Airbender M. Night Shyamalan Interview

As you may know there is a live-action cinema adaptation of Avatar The Last Airbender under way. The movie is directed by M. Night Shyamalan. But how did he learn about this animated TV show?

Well, we may have to thank his daughter! It is indeed through her that Director Shyamalan discovered Aang, the Last Airbender.

To learn more, watch this 'interview' of Shyamalan by Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko the co-creators of Avatar The Last Airbender:

M. Night Shyamalan is fortunate to have his daughter: he really needed to renew his inspiration! Shyamalan's latest movies were not that great and hardly bring people to theaters...

But I bet that this announced trilogy based on the Avatar world, starting with The last Airbender being the first movie, will be a real success. I hope there will be enough financial backing to make a movie that will blow us all away!

i have been a huge fan of M. Night Shyamalan for years. I have to say most live actions films that have been created from comic books and cartoons lately are directed by these really bad filmmakers. I am not in to anime (i dont have any grudges) but I am a huge film buff and I am going to record and say the for those of you that do like anime and in particularly "Avatar" well you guys are in for a real treat because you've got one of the best damn filmmakers in the industry working on this film.

M. Night Shyamalan is one of my favorite directors of all time!!! I am honored to view his vividly imaginative movies and this only gets better with his first trilogy. M. Night, you are my film idol, I wish to create films as great as yours. Also, Avatar's a great show and a soon-to-be amazing movie, Will you ever cease to amaze me?

Mr shyamalan, I really like the show avatar, and i think that the characters like katara and sokka look hawaiian. i think you should find your cast in hawaii. who you have for ang is perfect, but many others talents should be from hawaii. you can look at other actors while you are vacationing this coming summer.
