Star Dallas Liu shared his joy at being featured in the Netflix Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation. Liu was cast as Zuko, the exiled Fire Nation Prince determined to regain his fame by filming the famed Avatar. The original Nickelodeon hit series in which Netflix live-action adaptation will be released from 2005 to 2008.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Series
Avatar: The Last Airbender told the story of a world divided into four different nations: Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, Water Tribe, and Air Nomads. The world was in turmoil until the Fire Nation invaded other nations, which led to the need for the long-lost Avatar, the only one capable of restoring balance to the earth. Netflix recently announced the main cast of Avatar that will be live: Last Airbender fixes, but the start date of the recording has not yet been confirmed.
What made Zuko such a great character in the first animated series was his incredibly satisfying journey from season 1 to the final of the series. Initially, Zuko focused on his father, Fire Lord Ozai, after Ozai expelled Zuko from the Fire Nation. The only way to do that was to photograph the Fire Nation Avatar. However, thanks to the ingenuity of Zuko’s Uncle Iroh and Zuko’s experience in other nations, the exiled Fire Nation Prince came to realize that he was on the wrong side. As soon as Avatar Aang’s arch-enemy, Zuko’s choice to be Avatar’s ally and fight his father was one of the best in the series.
At the latest premiere of the Shang-Chi movie and Legend of Ten Rings, Liu, who also plays a role in Shang-Chi, expressed his excitement over his role in Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix adaptation. When asked by a Variety reporter what it feels like to be a part of this upcoming series, Liu said “it’s a great pleasure to play Zuko” and added, “I’m so excited to give you everything I have.” Liu also admitted that fans have been waiting a long time to find more ATLA content and said they “definitely won’t disappoint them.”
While that may not have been the case, Liu’s use of the word “glory” to describe his feelings for the cast as Zuko entertained Avatar: Fans of the Last Airbender. After all, it can be argued that illegal “fame” became Zuko’s motto in the game, especially in the first season (to the point where Zuko said, “I have to get my glory back” was ridiculed in mockery throughout the universe.) The real voice actor, Dante Basco, did the job. such a beautiful portrayal of Zuko in the animated series, it will still be exciting to see Liu’s action take on this role.
Upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix has a huge legacy of life according to fans of the first series. Hopefully, the fix will make the story of Zuko and Team Avatar fair. Avatar: The Last Airbender has done such a wonderful job of building a world with complex, flawed characters that were easy to create, so it will be interesting to see how live-action adaptation complements the animated series that has captured the hearts of fans around the world.
