In the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, mystics known as benders play a central role. Benders uses martial arts mixed with mystical powers to control one of the four classical elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. At any given time, there is one bender who can bend all four elements. This bender serves as the arbiter of world peace.

The series central character is 12-year-old Aang. He is the sole survivor of a destroyed nation called the Air Nomads. He takes it upon himself to fight against the Fire Nation as they try to dominate the world's other nations. He will have the help of his friends Sokka, Katara, and Toph in his quest.

The story provides another perspective by following the story of Zuko. Zuko is a prince of the Fire Nation who has been exiled. He hopes to regain his status in the nation by capturing Aang. He will have the help of his sister Azula and his uncle Iroh in his quest.

The series aired on the Nickelodeon cable network. Although it has something of an anime style and is set in an Asian-flavored fantasy world, it is an American production. It is part of a franchise that includes another animated series, comic books, and novels.

In 2010, M. Night Shyamalan made a live-action film adapted from the story. The film opened to broadly negative reviews and was a commercial disappointment.

The Last Airbender franchise should not be confused with the 2009 animated film Avatar.

  • Having decided to split up, Zuko and Katara head to the Fire Nation in order to stop Azula, who has become extremely paranoid and power hungry since becoming Firelord, once and for all; while Sokka, Toph, and Suki head to stop the air ship fleet that will destroy the Earth Kingdom.
