I never picked up the Manga, I played the Xbox game for about 10 seconds to retrieve 1000GS, and I watched maybe four episodes at most of the television series.

I must say though, after catching the trailer while seeing the midnight release of Iron Man 2 tonight, it looks pretty sick! I might actually have to go check it out.

The only thing I'm afraid of for the Avatar movie is that M Night Shyamalan is going to give it some ridiculous twist... It turns out it's just some young Asian kid who got lost in an Opium Den and has been smoking Opium with an alien who harvested his organs, however, he was so strung out on Opium, he remained alive and in a coma.

What, you mean 3D movies? :)

I mean, it's not like it's something brand new in terms of a movie... It's in 3D for Christ's sake! Reading that really pissed me off, besides the whole M. Night thing.

Movie looks pretty good. I heard he is making the movie because his daughter likes the show. So lets hope she dosen't let him ruin the movie.

I never got into the show, personally.
And just for kicks I'm going to refer to this movie as Avatar, because I think it should have been called that.

I like the show; it has its moments. But I will not support anything Shyamalan does.

For the love of GOD please do not mention DragonBall Evolution, I will Go fucking HULK and break something.

You know that episode of South Park about the Indiana Jones movie, watching that movie make me feel deeply what they were trying to express that whole episode.

I never picked up the Manga

It's not manga, anime or comic. It's Animated cartoon. I know they all sound similar but they're not.

Also, i've nearly all the Avatar: TLAB but i didn't watch the final 2-4 episodes because i've completely forgot, but now you've reminded me i get the chance to finish it :P

Dragonball and Dragonball-Z is good anything beyond that is terrible, i hate the newer ones but that's just me.

I always thought the cartoon was based off a Manga. I mean, I know it's not now, but I definitely wasn't confused between the definitions of Comic, Anime, or Manga.

I'm not too sure if it's based off a manga, but i don't think it is. The producer said although a lot of people class it as anime, it is not his intention to make anime and although it may look like Japanese manga to anime, it's really just a simple western animated cartoon that has oriental storyline.

I know GT was terrible and evolution just put the icing on the cake. Though Evolution was far, far worse than GT.

I'm very pumped! I saw most of the first season all those years ago when it first came out. I don't remember why, but I stopped watching it. However, I recently got Netflix and within the past week have seen the few episodes in Season 1 that I missed plus all of Seasons 2 & 3. I became interested in the movie when I first heard of it, but now that I've finished the series I'm mega-excited!

Yea me and my friend can't wait to go see it. I just hope we're not the only other upper teenagers there that aren't accompanying younger children.

The show is one of my favorites... (my god I love Azula and Zuko)... and I am definitely excited to see this after viewing the most recent trailer. I fully expect some ridiculous antics from Sokka and Aang or I will be thoroughly disappointed.

Its more the reverse. The manga/comics are based off of the televison show. And yes- there are books, I bought the first one xD

This looks great! Hopefully the movie isnt ruined..

So I watched the movie last night And it was awful, complete garbage. I'm wondering if he even watched the show.

I was guessing this would be garbage like his other films, from the looks of these reviews I was right, I'll rent or watch online then.

I watched the first and second season. But lost track of episodes in the third. Im kinda disappointed at the cast, but its not keeping me from going to see it.

i wish this movie had lived up to the hype, it was a decent movie but fans of the series are not going to be happy with it

I just saw it today. I believe some of the acting could've been better but I loved the movie anyway. There are only like two or three things I would've changed had I made the movie, but like I said, I thought it was good.

If you aren't familiar with the series... it's an alright movie... if you are.... do not watch this series..... it's horrible and almost dragonball like.

I agree they just took everything that made the show good, and threw it away. Even the end was like WTF that's it. And it ends with Aang looking like he's constipated.

Don't get me started on the Fire benders not being able to create fire. The movie just jumped from scene to scene with no development character or other wise. Aang's name was even wrong in the movie, so that was a huge mistake. Plus the special effects were not that great anyway to even save it. Micheal Bay should have written and directed at least there would have been shit blowing up, lol.

I consider anything that is animated and consecutive episodes leading into each other an "Anime" it does not need to come from Japan, and the "manga" mad from the series is actually called a "Manhwa" which in truth means Korean Manga, but is most noticeable for its Left-Right reading style (Like American books).

The only thing I hate (because I haven't seen the movie) is how ugly Aang or the Avatar (whatever his name is, I haven't watched the series and in no way am I insulting it) is. The actor looks like he's in a severe pout face the entire time, it's just...ugly, really...I want to rip his face off he's so disgusting.
