Live-action Avatar Aang

I love Avatar: The Last Airbender—such a fantastic cartoon. USA Today posted some shots of M. Night Shyamalan's live action adaptation The Last Airbender. I've never seen a kids movie from Shyamalan, so I'm not sure if that is good or bad for this. His past work has been fairly hit or miss with me. But I have hope, and apparently Nickelodeon does too -- they already signed him on to write and direct a full trilogy.

Noah Ringer, who plays Aang, actually holds a black belt in taekwondo. Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame will play Prince Zuko, and he also has a black belt in taekwondo. I'm interested to see how Shyamalan puts that to good use. This first movie will only be book one, so unfortunately Toph won't be around.
