M. Night Shyamalan Promises 'Last Airbender' Sequel Will Be Darker


Noah Ringer


The helmer also hints that some characters such as Azula and Kyoshi Warriors will have bigger parts in the second film.

"The Last Airbender" has received negative review, but a $40.3 million cume on its debut weekend is enough to keep M. Night Shyamalan optimistic about making the follow-up. Speaking to MTV News, the helmer says he has mapped out the second film. "I do. The third is more ambiguous, but the second one, I've written a draft that I'm really happy with and is darker and richer," he claims.

Revealing more details about the sequel, Shyamalan hints that he will pick up a less important character in the first film to be more prominent in the second movie. The filmmaker states, "And it has a wonderful antagonist in it in Azula, who's kind of like our only real, pure antagonist in the series, so I'm excited about that."

He also reveals that he will give a spotlight to Kyoshi Warriors whose scenes did not make it to the final cut of "The Last Airbender" due to editing decisions. "I probably won't show the Kyoshi Warriors because I want to save them for the second movie, because I'm going to have to introduce them all over again," he says while explaining what would and would not be included in the "Last Airbender" DVD and Blu-ray's deleted scenes.

"We shot [the scene] and [the Kyoshi Warriors] were amazing, and we spent an unbelievable amount of time choreographing them," he additionally says about the young female warriors. "And they just distracted from the movie, because the movie wasn't about them."

Despite M. Night Shyamalan's plan for "The Last Airbender" sequel, Paramount Pictures has not announced whether or not they will move forward with the film franchise. The first film meanwhile, has raked in $57.8 million as of July 6. Still in an effort to promote the sci-fi flick, the helmer and cast have attended Tokyo premiere for the movie on Tuesday.

    I know this post is late...lol. I just got done watching the movie again with my kids, they love it! Hate to see all the haters on here that want to spoil something for others because it doesn't do something for them. If you didn't like the movie, then do what others do, get over it and just don't watch it. NO NEED TO BOYCOTT!!! Lol. Dumb ***. We personally liked it and hopefully we will see the second movie released soon! To reiterate.... There are people that genuinely enjoyed this movie, for all other's, find something else to watch! Look forward to the second release!

    I reckon shymalan should make the sequel already. It was an awesome movie. The only thing that needs to be fixed is the earthbending, and giving the characters more emotion.

    To be honest, M.Night messed up on this. One of the main problems with TLA movie was that it was too dark. The animated series was very lighthearted and fun, but had darker parts as-well and that made it good. Yet M.Night wants to make this sequel even darker than the first!? This wont work. Im 13, and a huge fan of the animated series! I want them to make a much improved sequel. For example, fix the bending, it took people 5 minutes of dance moves to bend anything! Also M.Night needs to give the characters back their personality, Aang is ment to be a carefree and goofy kid, but in the film he was so serious. Katara is ment to be loving and motherly but she didn't have much personality at all! Sokka is supposed to be funny but he was just blank in the movie. There was also barley any dialog which made it hard to bond with the characters. I think they either recast the actors or improve their acting, because it was horrible in this film. If he does make a sequal, he HAS to give Tophs character the right personality, if he messes up on my favorite character i will not be happy! This has SO much potential to be an amazing film, but only if M.Night fixes the mistakes he made.

    TLA was not awefull at all i thought it wasn,t the worlds greatist movie but not horrible there wear only afew things i didn,t like about it first off the script could have used some work. shymalan probobaly should hove gotten proffessinol writers to wrie the script but he didnt do to bad with it, secondnight rushed through it alittle to much. like it would go from one scene then to another one in a instant and not even talk about what happend, third the scene wear they were in the north pole and they were being taught how to waterbend i remember in the cartoon seiries at first the teacher wouldent let katara or any other girl being taught how to waterbend. im not mad that they didnt do that i just wish night should have done that. there were some likes, the C.G.I. was very good including when aang got pissed and made that huge tital wave that was realy cool, i also liked some of the comody including in the deleted scenes when aang went to se that phsycick that was funny, also the acting and the action scenes were good, my last comment is about aupa and momo they looked just like the aupa and momo in the seiries so far i would give this movie a 8/10

    I've never seen nor would I have ever watched the cartoon version considering I'm not a child, I did however watch the movie & I loved it! I am anxiously awaiting a sequel. So it doesn't match the cartoon get the hell over it a lot of movies made from tv or books for that matter don't match & in this day and age most people are just looking for a few hours of entertainment & aren't diehard fans looking to critique every little aspect of a film.

    This movie adaption of the TV series was the worst thing I have ever seen. This movie leaves out key information from the series and reveals too much that ruins any suspense from the show, such as the fire lord or even Aang not destroying the fleet. The only plus side was maybe the effects. Horrible film that should not even have a sequel. M Night should just stop ruining a good series with his "visions".

    A lot of people have mentioned pronounciation. The funniest thing is that twit Shyamalan didn't even get the pronounciation of the word 'avatar' right. Oh no, in his world, there was 'Ung, the uh-va-tar' *rolls eyes*. Why was this talentless excuse for a director allowed to have any part in this movie? To all those who agree with the 'darker' theme, a big part of what appealed about the series was the lighthearted fun nature. It was a good story, dark in parts, but a fun series, and that's what gave it the heart. M Might Shyamalan has never, ever made a movie that can be watched more than once and even that once, dubiously so. His movies are all the same, one invariably leaves disappointed, having seen a movie that ultimately fails to deliver, then shame at having watched it in the first place. Why he was chosen to direct this I will never know but to anyone with any say in the creation of these movies who may be reading this and other complaints, I implore you, you have the power to end this! End it now, redo the first movie with a different director, for the love of life itself don't allow pointless sham Shyamalan anywhere near the sequels!

    I thought the last airbender was a great film. I thought it was easy to understand and had great bending effects. I thought the acting was great despite the fact people are saying it was bad. I think this because anng was emotional and started crying because he didn't want to be the avatar with people worshiping him. It was also a good story (very imaginative and exiting) and I was always wanting to see what happened next. This movie is my favourite movie and I really want there to be a sequel as I want to be able to see another movie about the last airbender. Since I watched it I can't get it out of my head. PLEASE make another movie.

    I liked the sixth sense.. but at some point his work began to fail.. Lady in the water, The happening.. what the hell happened? When I saw the Avatar movie, i wanted to leave the theater and get my money back. It was a horrible movie. Beside the fact that it wasn't "an all asian cast" and "not like the tv show", the acting was HORRIBLE. No emotion at all, the bending looked.. so lame. It was more of a dance than that of martial arts. I hope they do NOT let them ruin such an amazing series. I really hope someone makes sure he cannot kill the rest of the series.

    I did love his sixth sense movie and unbreakable was the shizzle but man, his interpretation of the "Airbender: was all wrong (viking water tribe, Indian fire nation and who the fuck is Unng "Aang"?). I hope the next book does not see the light of day, in his hands. I'm a fan of him, but I have to agree, honestly with the critics, this movie was bad.

    @ Kxlebxrawr Those were just the two most voiced complaints about it. Those weren't what bugged me. What bugged me was that the characters didn't even act vaguely like they did in the series, the choreography looked like piss, and the acting was bad for basically everyone outside of the fire nation. The saving grace on the choreography section, I would say is the fight with the Blue Spirit. That was actually pretty epic. The pacing also felt horrible.

    Out of all these complaints i am mainly getting the sense that people are pissed because (1) the cast wasnt completely asian and (2) the movies wasnt exactly like the show. All i can say is...really?!? I agree it wasnt as good as the series..but that is what we get when someone turns a cartoon into a freakin live action movie. I thought the movie was great but you cannot go into the movie and compare every little thing to the series! I think n might did wonderful considering! i am waiting for the sequal!!

    This was a terrible movie. People can say he made it his own. Yeah into garbage, the facts are the pronunciation was bad and different from the show. Why mess with gold. He shouldn't be allowed to write and direct sequels. And he wants to make it darker? The cartoon is pretty dark pay attention. He didn't do it justice. He sucked sucked sucked. And the way he casted racially was a bigger flp than his other movies

    Honestly...for those who have seen watched the cartoon and have fallen in love with it..expect the characters to atleast remain the same...I was very disappointed to see that the fire benders were darker than the water benders when in the cartoon you can clearly see who's dark or not..I understand he wanted to put his interpretation but you should never change the characters from a T.V. because the characters are what make the viewers fall in love with the show..I feel like that was his biggest mistake and that's when people got the idea that the movie was going to be bad..because we were all disappointed about the characters and especially from the way their names were pronounced.. the movie itself wasn't as bad as everyone thinks..but the cast was just really bad..which made the whole attempt of the movie even worse.

    So far, from what I've read, it sounds like fans are blowing this out of proportion. It's not bad, not great, but certainly not the worse I've ever seen. It's an AU, and right now, this AU needs three thigns to save it, Kyoshi Warriors, Azula, and Toph. I think it's only going to get better.

    Do some people not understand what an adaptation is? Like someone else already stated, having started as a cartoon it was geared toward children. This movie is a more mature interpretation of the series. I can't understand what all the negative reviews are all about - I loved the movie. As to the terrible acting, I completely disagree with those statements (with the exception of Sokka). I liked how all the child actors still acted like children, unlike like other movies such as the Narnia movie where thye're all "brave soldiers" all of a sudden. Sokka however was too serious and completely forgettable for me. It's encouraging to hear that M. Night will be adding the Kyoshi Warriors into the next film and hopefully it will be as good as the first movie.

    seriously?!? you have the balls to say that this movie was worth watching?! did all of you watch the same cartoons that the rest of us loved and enjoyed? if you have the nerve to say you have watched the series COMPLETELY and say that its in par with this sad pathetic excuse of an adaptation, then you must've been watching something else and can definitely fall under the definition "dumbass". M. Night argues that he wanted to tell the story "HIS" way and that his interpretation of the movie should be broadcasted. in short, its the biggest way to flip the bird to all the fans and let a completely successful series fall flat, destroyed and it would have been better to reach into my mouth and yank my balls from the inside if i wanted to feel pain. but no, Shyamalan topped that. since he fancies keeping the audience in their seats to await for his big twist in movies, The Last Airbender makes you want to commit seppuku after watching.. thats the twist. thank you M. Night Shyamalan for your effort to bring an entire series crumble with your creativity. it would have been easier to hand us a pistol instead of 3D glasses as we entered the cinemas since you basically want us to blow our heads off anyway. instead of threatening us with a sequel thats promises to be "darker", how about you do something less threatening by taking a step back and go FUCK YOURSELF!

Oscar! That's right. Last Airbender delivers on all counts: it satisfies fans and complete idiots alike! Just read these posts! All the critics (and I mean all) must have been high when they saw it, cuz it was good. I hope they make a series, then a prequel trilogy, then a TV spinoff, then an animated cartoon based on the movies. YESS!

    To tell u the truth I didn't go see the last airbender on the big screen because of m. Night. I didn't want to waist my money! I mean he has good intentions but ok look at the movie the village it sucked! He doesn't follow through with what we expect the movie should be. And why does he play in every movie he directs? I couldn't wait for the airbender to finally come out and when I watched it online nevertheless I was disapointed cause the trailer looked better than the movie. I wish he would have put more effort in the spirit world and made the effect more breathtaking. It looked bootleg. Oh move ya arms around and water comes or fire come out of a pot at u. Wow. The avatar great kid but he needed more umph in his powers. Make me believe he is the avatar rather than making water in a circle and the flicker of the candle and making a rock st8 up lol come on m. Night u got to have something up ur sleave!

    Jul 09, 2010

    I've seen all the cartoon episodes from beginning to end. I was glad the movie left out the campy jokes and humor. Yes, it had a much more serious tone. I felt it pretty much kept to the storyline and I don't understand where all the hate is coming from. The fight scenes were good, especially the earth benders and most of the movie looked crisp. People are upset over the pronunciation of names??? The way someone's hair looked??? The princess had white hair in movie just like in the cartoon. M. Knight didn't destroy the franchise and I'm ready for the sequels with the same director! My ten year old daughter thought it was pretty awesome too.

    I keep getting asked why I liked it so much... well basically All the things that appealed to me in the show. For one I liked the acting, (with one exception, the grandmother, she was awful). Sokka wasnt a dumbass like on the show, which was cool with me. He still had upstanding honor and character but without wanting to smack him for being a tang tang. He played a good emotional strong character, and I really like how he held himself with such subtlety in his performance. It reminded me of heath ledger in brokeback moutain because it was so emotional and so earnest that it transcended words. his eyes and the clenching of his jaw said every bit as much as any line he spoke. Katara played her part perfectly, and her emotional range was so in tune with the way I always pictured her character. a highly sensitive idealist. She's the heart of the team. I will definately enjoy seeing her and aang grow closer. and omg aang was just incredible. I mean flat out omfg incredible. His suppression of such strong emotions showed on his face. It rare to see that level of talent in a young star. I could have taken or left dev pattels performance... he seemed alot whinier than zuko was in the series, but it worked. Iroh was a good guide for him, and I liked that. I really enjoyed the emotional strength of the movie and the depth of spiritual connection it achieved without floundering into kiddy jokes and gimmicks to cater to the less cultured in the audience. the sets and effects were top notch. I liked the casting in its diversity. Aang looked more ethnically ambiguous in the movie than on the show (where he looked super peachy white) sokka and katara looked like angle mixed with native american heritage, which was nice (as a native american I dont think we get enough play in films... and even if they arent, the fact that they look it made a big difference in my eyes) the whole earth nation was asian, the whole fire nation as east indian, and the air nation being all inclusive really appealed to me from a standpoint of diversity. and above all the fact that they squeezed in episodes 1-3 + 6, 12, 13, 19, and 20 into a two hour movie without making it a balls to the wall action eye candy mess. I would have liked a 3 hr movie, and I would have liked a better jah... but whatev... he still played a dick. As far as the kyoshi warriors not being included (heard plenty of complaints bout that) I think they really fit better in book 2 as they play a larger role there.... Plus I like the idea of sokka having some mourning time before slowly entering into a new relationship. If he had met her before meeting yue, it would have seemed awkward in such a short time as the movies extend. Which is also why I think the change in ending and lack of complete avatar state was a good choice as well.... In a show where you have 10 hrs to tell the story spanning long lengths of time there is the luxury of once or twice still being a miraculous rarity... but a series that in its entirety will run less than 8 hrs, you need to diminish the frequency in order to increase their impact. So once in book 2 will be a bigger deal and a bigger lead up to the finale of 3. Pronunciation changes... I liked em, didnt bother me any. My only real problems with the movie are that I wish it had been longer. And the grandmother couldnt act her way out of a paper bag. oh and boomi would fit better in book two as an emotional story. aang having some time to believe everyone he knew is dead and then the surprise of an old friend offering him counsel... sounds like a winner to me. I mean all these smaller stories in the show have a chance to be real emotional arcs rather than filler episodes... So long as M. night continues to treat them with the same seriousness he treated this film, and doesn't pander to whining fanboys who want "more color, and humor"

    I think this movie was pretty good. i am 16 and have seen all the cartoon versions. ya not everything is the same...but i see this version to appeal to more pre-teens to young adults not children. they have a cartoon version for a reason. I do admit they could have at least pronounced the names better, but sokkas devotion to his sister was really passionate and his love for the princess was there. They did answer why Aang ran away. it's because he was to scared to be the avatar. but its shows through the movie how he learns to grow and accept his destiny. It will be cool to see a bit more of a darker version in the sequel. just don't make it so dark that everyone goes on a massive killing spree between the nations. and make it darker but also add humor have sokka be more ditzy like he was in the cartoon, but serious when the time calls for him to be. Lighten Aang up to a little but as far as everything goes he storyline seems to be the same... i personally enjoyed the movie. It was SUPER stellar and i know many people who are hoping for a sequel. So M.Night i just wanted to say its a great movie so don't let the negative criticism get you down because many people will go to see the sequel. =:) i really hope to see it soon hoping i dont have to wait like 3 years for a sequel. Stay optimistic thats the best thing you can do good luck for the 2nd book Earth. And thank you for making a great film

    I agree with all the horrible things people have said about the movie because to tell the truth it is all true. He ruined a perfectly good cartoon series with a movie. Also I do think he did not bother to watch any of the show because if he did he maybe would have done somthin right for a change and made a good movie, but no he just likes to fail at his so called passion.

    This movie was cRAP please make a sequel but with a different cast that actually shows the characters personality. and please get a new Director i have no F&%*^ idea why the choose Shyamalan to direct it. they couldnt pronounce the main characters names right!!! just goes to show you Shyamalan never bothered to watch a single episode of the series. i just hope Shyamalan gigantic failure as a producer, screen writer, and director doesnt kill the franchise. i really want to see an avatar film with some justice done right to it. So many things wrong with the film just a gigantic waste of time, money and a huge blow to all the fans of the series

    If they go forward with a sequel, please make someone else a director and salvage this franchise before M. Night screws it up again. And knock it off with making every movie darker. That's what ruined the first movie. This isn't the 00's anymore. People actually want to have fun at the movies now.

    If MNS is truly writing the next two, I am NOT going to see them. Dragonball Z was better then TLA

    This has got to end. It will be "Darker". That's the problem. WE DON"T WANT TO SEE DARKER!! Children don't want to see DARKER! The REAL Avatar fans want to see a "real-life" adaptation of the cartoon that was so well respected, loved, and awesome. Not some dark, jacked up adaptation of what M.Knight F'd UP mind interpreted as what was going on in the cartoon. PLEASE PARAMOUNT & Nickelodeon! DON'T SELL YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL's Advocate of Movies!!!!!

    M. Night should not be allowed to make the sequels to the film. I don't think he was truly invested in the story, rather just wanted to make a quick buck. I wanted so badly to see Aang come out of his frozen globe and ask for penguin sledding. Instead he was just depressed and dreary the entire movie. Even Sokka had no humor. I noticed that only two of the character names were pronounced properly and that was Katara and Yue. Even the one on one fighting challenge of Agnie Kai (I know I spelled it wrong) was mispronounced. There was no connection to the characters. M. Night obviously did not see the series and did not identify with the little details of the main characters that the fans fell in love with. This would include but not be limited to Aang's sweet innocence and childlike playfulness; Katara's huge and mesmerizing blue eyes and her adorable "hair loopies", as well as her obvious love and nurturing nature toward Aang; Sokka's unique way to put a smile on the viewer's face, even when faced with the most dangerous of adversaries. I think M. Night rushed through the thing to make some money and simply had no care of how the series fans would be affected. M. Night...just hang up your hat. You don't need to be making movies. Please allow someone who actually still has vision, talent, and respect for the fans make the next installment. I'm scared to see Toph, one of the three funniest characters in the series. With M. Night behind the wheel, she'll probably be a monotone snore just like the rest of the cast. For those who never watched, or didn't follow the series, it's a cute little movie. But there are serious fans out there of all ages who fell in love with not only the story, but the characters as well. M. Night brought nothing to the movie that would please the fans.

    Here we go again. Nobody can like the movie or else we are idiots. You want it to be like the cartoon, then just watch the cartoon. You want a happy Aang, sorry that doesn't work in the real world when he wakes up and finds everyone he knows has died and the world is a mess because of his absence. You are no true fan of the series when you can't even understand the positive themes Avatar tries to convey, ie accepting and appreciating others' beliefs.

    Outstanding...yeah... I wonder if the Kyoshi choreography is as "amazing" as that earthbending synchronized stomp-dance. *eyes roll*

    TLA was a horrible adaptation of the amazing series. Shyamalan needs to stop making these movies and hand it over to someone else that will know what he's doing with the source material. The writing and acting were just so HORRIBLE in the movie. Just watch the series until a better movie comes out, M. Night has no idea what he's doing.
