Science Fiction and Fantasy

White Men Can’t Bend

Apparently, white folks can Bend. Also, Aang is all grim and gritty avenger of the night or something. On the plus side, we get to finally see Appa, and it looks pretty awesome. Sorta like how The Golden Compass movie looked awesome. Err.

If anyone reading this hasn’t seen the original animated series (Avatar: The Last Airbender), then please. Better TV or better fantasy is hard to find.
