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.
