AceShowbiz - Brand new pictures from "The Last Airbender" have been unraveled and this time, they bring forth Sokka and Katara, the two key characters beside Aang and Zuko. Found via The Examiner, each of the images gives out a close-up shot of Jackson Rathbone and Nicola Peltz in their characters' costume. In addition to those two, other captures at Noah Ringer's Aang and Dev Patel's Zuko are also included.
Weeks earlier, producer Frank Marshall has opened up to Starlog that the planned trilogy of "The Last Airbender" won't be filmed back-to-back, instead they will be handled one by one and may take as long as six years to complete. "We're shooting them one at a time, because they're being written one at a time," he stated. "[M.] Night [Shyamalan] will finish this movie, then the script and then we'll prepare for the next one. I think it'll probably happen over six years."
Slated for July 2, 2010 U.S. release, "The Last Airbender" is a live-action film version of Nickelodeon's animated series of the same name. To be differentiated from James Cameron's "Avatar", it has dropped "Avatar" from its title. The film follows Aang and is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire.
With the help of a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. But, his goal will meet a tough challenge from exiled Fire Nation's evil prince Zuko who is sent to capture the Avatar in order to restore his honor and right to the throne.
