A new poster for Avatar: The Last Airbender shows Aang getting ready to unleash his Airbender staff.
If you grew up watching the Nickelodeon show, you know that Aang is probably getting ready to soar to the sky because his airbender staff folds out into a glider, allowing Airbenders to harness air currents and travel large distances.
Parts of the staff can also change into a fan-like weapon, allowing Aang to launch massive gusts of air at his opponents.
Fans (no pun intended) of the cartoon will also recall that the staff plays a key, emotional role in the series when Aang decides to go confront Fire Lord Ozai.
Avatar: The Last Airbender will premiere its highly-anticipated eight episode first season on Netflix, February 22, 2024.
Avatar: The Last Airbender stars Gordon Cormier as Avatar Aang, Kiawentiio as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, Dallas Liu (PEN15) as Prince Zuko, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim's Convenience, The Mandalorian) as Uncle Iroh, Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, Lost) as Fire Lord Ozai, Ken Leung (Inhumans, The Blacklist) as Commander Zhao, and Elizabeth Yu (Somewhere in Queens)as Princess Azula.
Albert Kim (Nikita, Leverage) is serving as showrunner.
The official synopsis from Netflix reads, "Water, Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony - then everything changed. A live-action adaptation Aang's story.
The four nations once lived in harmony, with the Avatar, master of all four elements, keeping peace between them. But everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked and wiped out the Air Nomads, the first step taken by the firebenders towards conquering the world. With the current incarnation of the Avatar yet to emerge, the world has lost hope.
But like a light in the darkness, hope springs forth when Aang, a young Air Nomad — and the last of his kind — reawakens to take his rightful place as the next Avatar. Alongside his newfound friends Sokka and Katara, siblings and members of the Southern Water Tribe, Aang embarks on a fantastical, action-packed quest to save the world and fight back against the fearsome onslaught of Fire Lord Ozai. But with a driven Crown Prince Zuko determined to capture them, it won’t be an easy task. They’ll need the help of the many allies and colorful characters they meet along the way."
