According to Dante Basco, Mike and Bryan Disliked The Last Airbender Movie and Warned Him to “Never See it”

Remember the movie that talked about the life of some kid named Ahng and how he was destined to be the Uhvatar? It had decent special effects, but when it came to dialogue and plot integration, it looked like the works of a 10 year old. Maybe you remember it. I wish I could forget, but that would only be possible if someone gave me the address to Lake Laogai.

Brain washing, anyone?

Anyways, The Last Airbender, by M. Night Shyamalan turned out to be an epic flop that was liked by a small population and hated by the rest of the world. Mike and Bryan, the creators of the animated series, always declined to comment about the film publicly, but that didn’t stop them for sharing their opinions with others such as Dante Basco.

Dante Basco, best known to the Avatar Community as the voice of Zuko and General Iroh II, recently held a Reddit AMA a few days ago in which he responded to fans’ questions on a comment board. One fan asked him what he thought about “m night shaymalamadingdong’s” movie, and he responded as followed:

Dante Basco: Second Season of ‘Legend of Korra’ Currently in the Works

In an interview with Crave Online, Dante Basco (voice of Zuko) slipped some more details on the current production status of The Legend of Korra. When asked what was “going on” with The Legend of Korra, Basco was not shy to reveal the current status of the popular series:

We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.

Now this is very interesting because The Legend of Korra is currently at its cross roads of destiny. The second season only has 14 episodes planned, and with 2-3 episodes already finished, Mike and Bryan will need to decide whether they want to extend The Legend of Korra, or end the series at season two.

This is not the first time Mike and Bryan have had to decide whether or not to extend The Legend of Korra. The series was actually already extended once: It was initially only going to be a mini-series, but it was later extended to two seasons.

Ultimately, the fate of the show is in the hands of the creators. We’ll just have to wait and see what they decide to do and learn to live with it. But let’s just be happy that Dante Basco has confirmed season two’s production as well as his role in the season. And based on what Basco is saying, I can’t wait to see how this season ends.
