Apart from the present’s iconic moments — like Sokka’s girlfriend turning into the moon, any of Uncle Iroh’s strains, and in addition Appa’s whole existence — it additionally introduced with it vital life classes we nonetheless take into consideration at the moment.
Now that the present’s on Netflix, we do not have to attend any longer to reminisce about it. However why did Avatar solely have three seasons?
‘Avatar’s full story was informed after three seasons.
For individuals who do not bear in mind, the present adopted Aang, an airbender and untrained Avatar, who has to be taught all 4 components to revive concord between the totally different nations. The present’s seasons have been informed in numerous “books” to signify the three components Aang nonetheless needed to be taught: E book One was “Water,” E book Two was “Earth,” and E book Three was “Fireplace.”
The present’s creators allegedly mapped out how the story would go, instructing him every of the weather in every of the books. Whereas some would level out that he nonetheless wasn’t a “fully-trained” Avatar by the top of the sequence, he had defeated Ozai and ended the warfare, bringing the peace he had sought to convey from the start.
Sadly, that was all there was to inform of Aang’s story, which was why the present ended, and the spinoff The Legend of Korra was created.
There was a fourth season within the works earlier than the sequence ended.
Whereas Aang’s story had been informed by the top of Season 3, a few of the supporting characters hadn’t completed their very own arcs — which is what made the present’s ending so upsetting.
Former Head Author for Avatar, Aaron Ehasz, shared on Twitter that there had been a fourth season within the works earlier than the sequence’ finish, giving Zuko’s sister, Azula, the character growth she deserved.
“I all the time supposed for #Azula to have a redemption arc within the story of #AvatartheLastAirbender,” he shared on Twitter in 2019. “Longer and way more sophisticated than Zuko’s. She had not bottomed in the long run of Season 3, she had additional to go. On the deepest second in her personal abyss she would have discovered: Zuko.”
He revealed her arc would’ve introduced her again to her brother, reconnecting with him and studying from the dictator methods their father had taught her.
“And I all the time imagined that after popping out the opposite aspect, she can be a kind of individuals who hilariously over-shares her personal emotions on a regular basis, and that she can be a bit over-apologetic. Like a Canadian model of Azula,” Aaron stated of Azula’s arc.
However why did not a fourth season occur? In response to ComicBook.com, the season was scrapped in favor of the flop of a live-action film remake.
Clearly, they need to’ve gone with a fourth season, however at the least we’ve The Legend of Korra to proceed the story.
