It has been five year since the last Airbender movie arrived in cinemas. Critics was continuously crushing M. Night Shyamalan. He made the movie based on Nickelodeon’s cartoon series, but got no where near the amount of success. There were a lot of complaints from the public that the movie was a failure and a time waster. M. Night Shyamalan couldn’t say much but he definitely put a silence to millions of the people by this single statement.

“It’s really weird because on the show the average age was, like, nine-years-old… My child was nine-years-old. So you could make it one of two ways. You could make it for that same audience, which is what I did — for nine and 10-year-old — or you could do the Transformers version and have Megan Fox. I didn’t do that… Those kids, it’s for them. It was for them, to talk about mysticism and Eastern philosophies through a 10-year-old’s vernacular.”

IGN interviewed “The Last Airbender’s ” cartoon series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante Dimartino. They said that they didn’t even consider the movie as the part of “The Last Airbender”. Well, that is harsh. The 2010 movie got a really negative response as the rating was only 4.3/10 on Imdb.

The sequel to the movie is now confirmed, lets hope that this one turns out to be good.

        Bunk. VCpost says “Shyamalan planned to push through with a sequel as
        evidenced by the introduction of Prince Zuko’s sister, Azula, at the end
        of the first film. It was going to be a trilogy. However, despite
        previous news that he had already penned a first draft for the
        follow-up, no updates have come up since then. It is also uncertain if
        development for this would push through some time in the future.” Which
        is where it seems the “it’s going to happen” posts started
