    Nah, I just don't want to jump to the conclusion that the guys automatically racist because he didn't automatically cast all asians in a martial arts movie based on a show inspired by asian ideologies.

    He basically didn't hire any. Not even for extras and stuff.

    Lol, no, there were a ton of Asians in that film. The entire Fire Nation was from India. XD

    Aside from the whitewashed cast, I didn't like the movie, because it was extremely plot-driven and barely character-driven, which is really unlike season 1 of the show. The characters we really flat with no development and the worldbuilding was... eh, less than compelling.

    And why is Aang so dang serious the whole time?

    So a bit off in that respect. Still the main cast was whitewashed. They also filmed a Kyoshi Island scene and cut it. Or something. :/

    Lol, I love the scene when Sokka sees the Kyoshi warrior in their dojo ((Or whatever)) and laughs at their 'Dancing', and opts to show them some real 'moves', then he gets owned, ha ha ha. I wonder what their style was based on, a mix of Judo and Aikido?

    Yeaaaah Fire Nation's not India. If anything, it's Japan.

    Honestly, I think that the Air Nomads would be Indian and the Earth nation African. Water tribes are obv white.
