Dev Patel as the firebender!
ACTION, ADVENTURE, FANTASY
Dev Patel, the underdog of Slumdog Millionaire turns into a firebending antagonist for Manoj Night Shyamalan’s upcoming action-adventure fantasy flick The Last Airbender which is the cinematic adaptation of the television series ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’.
The movie, co-written and directed by Manoj Night Shyamalan, is set in a fantasy world where the four elements - Fire, Air, Earth, Water - can be controlled by people known as benders. Trouble starts when the Fire nation declares a war on other nations.
Actor Noah Ringer plays a young boy named Aang, who is the last known airbender. He is called the Avatar, one who has the ability to control all four elements. Dev Patel plays Prince Zuko, who is out to capture Aang. He is gifted with the ability to control fire.
In the movie, Patel’s character Prince Zuko is exiled from the Fire Nation. He was challenged to a fire duel with his father, the Fire Lord Ozai, which he lost.
Zuko and his ageing uncle Iroh are forced to become refugees in Earth Kingdom.
Using his firebending skills, Zuko comes close to capturing the long lost avatar Aang. But Aang manages to escape after help from his friends Sokka and Katara.
RETURN TO KINGDOM
Later, when Aang is fatally wounded, Zuko returns to Fire Kingdom to reclaim his lost honour and crown.
CHANGE OF HEART
But when Zuko discovers that Aang is still alive, he joins hands with Aang to teach him firebending.
Later, in a fire duel with his own sister, Zuko is badly injured when he’s unable to bend lightening.
After the battle, Zuko heals again and is crowned the firelord.
