Yes, that little prediction i made some time ago in this thread seems to be coming true rather quickly. Yes, they have taken Avatar, an awesome anime (yes, i consider it one) and turned it into a stupid live action movie. Who is directing this travesty? M. Night Shyamalan. Yeah, the sixth sense guy. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this a stupid idea.

It looks like it has retained some of the show's style. I am not concerned at the moment.

I'm not all that worried. Looking at it, it has a decent cast, some good studios behind it, as well as the proper research done into it, and, of course, a decent director. I know he's made a few flops, but I like Shyamalan's work, for the most part, although, he does seem to only do fear films, not epic fantasy... so, lets see what happens. I'm hopeful though, it has the potential to be good.

Consider this:

Avatar is being closely watched by the original creators

Akira Toryama had nothing to do with Dragonball Evolution

No more comparisons, avatar's being made by actual fans

To be honest the concept of turning avatar into a live action movie is good but turning a anime to live action show is a very bad concept I wonder how this would work out.

I actually really liked the show. I hope it doesn't become live action. That'd sort of ruin it for me.

Eh. Let's hope you're right that this won't be a total setback. I've got a friend who likes that show. I stick with Higurashi, but...

It looks like it'll pertain mostly to the original storyline, just abridged and possibly more violent.

And now here we are over a year later...it turns out I was wrong, this movie is nailing the coffin in Shaymalan's career.

I loved the anime and i think the film looks great too! A lot of CGI want to watch it in 3D :)
