The story takes place in a universe where some people can manipulate one or two natural elements, but only the Avatar can bend them all. In this series, the Avatar has been absent from the world for 100 years.
Sokka is a typical young boy who lives in Antarctica and wants to prove his worth to his people, the Southern Water Tribe. He is young and naïve and has much to learn about the world and himself.
Katara is his sister. She’s young but talented and mature for her age. She is family-oriented, and she cares a lot for others. She has a selfless personality.
Aang is the Avatar and the main character in the series. He is powerful and spiritually oriented. Avatar is twelve years old in the series
These three characters are the most important characters of the series.
In the beginning, Sokka and Katara argue because Katara does everything for Sokka. They both live with their grandmother. The Tribe’s name is the Southern Water tribe, whose culture is loosely based on Eskimo culture. Prince Zoko and his uncle are hunting for the Avetar to bring him back to the Fire Nation to be executed. And regain Zoko's honor.
Katara breaks the Avatar out of the ice and introduces her and her brother. While he was gone, a great war lasted 100 years. The series is about the Avatar learning about his abilities. He finds masters of different elements to teach him so that he can be prepared for the coming of a celestial body, which will enhance all his fire-bending abilities. Also, he is prepared to face and defeat Fire Lord Ozai, who wants to finish what his grandfather started and rule the world.
The Avatar has a short window of time to stop him. I recommend the series to everybody because there are elements everyone can appreciate. The characters are deeply motivated to save the world. I also enjoyed seeing the development of the relationship between Aang and Katara. Katara has many romantic options; however, she realizes his feelings for her are genuine, and she realizes that her feelings for him are more profound than friendship. The last episode of the original Avatar series shows that with persistence and patience. Anything is possible.
I think this series is fantastic because of the amount of character development. I also recommend the series to future writers. I wish the series had been more extended, but overall, it was fantastic. I’m happy they made a spinoff, an exploration of the Avatar universe. I think the Avatar series has a bright future.
There was a recent announcement that the creators will get a studio at Nickelodeon to do what they want to do with the Avatar series. I think that they can explore the future and the past. I look forward to many years of high-quality Avatar shows because the creators have found a solid formula of philosophical thinking and physical action. I have high hopes for the continued evolution of the Avatar universe.
