I was just talking to an RL friend about this last night! He'd just gotten into the series, and although I haven't seen it, I said the name sounded familiar because I'd heard controversy about movie casting, etc. Is it still true??? I was hoping the using of non-Asian actors thing was a horrible rumour since squashed. :(((
Dev Patel got cast for one of the mai actors but the thing is, they've gone and done the typical hollywood whitewashing where the villains (fire nation) are asian (to be particular, south asian / indian) and the heroes (water tribe, air)are white. glockgal has amazing coverage and links on her lj.
The part that gets me the most is that in the casting call they listed their search as for "Caucasian or any other ethnicity." Hollywood fails. This is ridiculous.
AWESOME. The green variants are really lovely and striking.

The more I read about the casting, the angrier and disappointed I get. :/
Wow. I clicked the link and read the site. Wow. People SUCK. What are they THINKING? al;dkfjas;lfjksdfl;j
I LOVE YOU SO HARD RIGHT NOW I CAN CRY. HAPPY TEARS.

Mind if pimp this over at racebending?? <3 <3
