Exploring the Storyline of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender

The live-action remake of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” follows the same adventures as the animated series.

In this world, civilization is divided into four nations, each named after one of the elements: Air Nomads, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Water Tribes. “Benders” in each nation possess unique powers to manipulate their element through martial arts and telekinesis. Only the “Avatar” can control all four elements.

Aang, the current Avatar from the Air Nomads, awakens after a century in the “Avatar State” thanks to Katara and Sokka from the Water Tribe. Aang learns of the world’s ongoing war with the Fire Nation and, with his new friends, embarks on a journey to master the remaining elements and restore balance to the nations.
