Over the holiday weekend Paramount decided to release a new trailer for The Last Airbender. It’s an international version with Japanese subtitles, and features a few quick shots of unseen footage. This version actually looks a lot better than the domestic trailer that came out a couple of months ago. Take a look and tell us what you think…
The Last Airbender centers on Aang, the young successor to a line of Avatars who have the ability to control the four elements (earth, fire, water, air). In the past there was peace between the four nations that represented each element, but it changed when the Avatars disappeared and the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations. Now it’s up to 12 year old Aang to defeat their army and bring balance and peace back to all four nations.
Is it just us or does the Japanese narration make everything sound better? The footage itself is great but there’s something about the voice over that takes it to the next level. Everything else looks good but the actress who plays Katara comes off as a little annoying. In the cartoon the character didn’t bother us that much but here her voice is like nails on a chalkboard.
The Last Airbender will debut in theaters on July 2, 2010.
