Here’s the synopsis shared by Hollywood North Buzz, do you notice any interesting details not explicitly narrated in the animation?
The Last Airbender takes place in a fantasy world, home to humans, fantastic animals, and supernatural spirits. Human civilization is divided into three pre-industrialized nations, the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, and the Air Nomads, and an industrialized nation, the Fire Nation, capable of manufacturing various types of machines. Within each nation, an order of men and women called “Benders” have the ability to manipulate their native element.
These arts combine a certain style of martial arts and elemental mysticism. The types of Control are Waterbending, Earthbending, Firebending, and Airbending. In each generation, a person is capable of mastering the four elements; this is the Avatar, the spirit of the planet manifested in human form. When the Avatar dies, he is reincarnated into an unborn baby native to the next nation in the Avatar Cycle, which parallels the seasons: winter for water, spring for earth, summer for fire, and autumn for air.
While legend holds that the Avatar must master the elements in order, beginning with his native element, this can sometimes be compromised when the situation calls for it. Learning to master the opposing element of one’s native element is extremely difficult because the opposing arts are based on opposing fighting styles and doctrines.
