Original voice from animation says live-action remake is not needed

Since its announcement, the live-action series for Avatar: The Legend of Aang has sparked controversial opinions among fans.

Recently, the original cast in charge of voicing the characters in the animation – Dante Basque (Zuko), Jack DeSena (Sokka), Dee Bradley Baker (Appa and Momo), Gray Griffin (Azula), Olivia Hack (Ty Lee), Jennie Kwan (Suki), Cricket Leigh (Mai) and Michaela Murphy (Toph) – took part in a virtual reunion, where they recalled their work and talked a bit about the upcoming live adaptation.

Dee Bradley Baker then explained that the idea of ​​a remake seems a little pointless: “I just don’t know how this version can better respond to the idea that our series never did. I’m open to whatever they want to do live that I don’t know anything about anyway. But it’s like, “Well, how can we do this better than what’s already been done in animation?” I don’t know how they’re going to do this. I hope you can do it ”. He then praised the original series, saying it was the best series he had ever been on.

Olivia Hack agreed with her castmate, saying, “Exactly, especially when you’re doing the same show, but in live action. You don’t add anything or expand the universe. You do the same and it seems a bit redundant, but I don’t know… ”

Avatar: The Legend of Aang follows the story of a young airbender who must defeat the cruel Fire Nation and its imperialist reign.
