Paramount released the first teaser trailer of M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender earlier this week. The film is a live-action adaptation of the Emmy Award-winning animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender which ran three seasons on the Nickelodeon kid's network and continues in reruns on Nick and Nicktoons channels.
Avatar tells the story of Aang, a young boy with the ability to control the elements of water, fire, earth and air. Instead of accepting his avatar mantle, Aang runs away and due to an accident, he's encased in ice for 100 years. Once awakened, Aang learns he's the last of his tribe and starts on a journey to fulfill his destiny, and restore balance to the world that has been overrun by the Fire Nation.
The Live-Action version of the film was written by the animated show's creator, Michael Dante DiMartin and stars newcomer Noah Ringer as Aang.
The Last Airbender is scheduled for release on July 2, 2010.
