Netflix's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Star Hypes One of Its Biggest Scenes

The world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra might be returning in an animated format thanks to Avatar Studios, but Netflix is looking to join in on the action with its upcoming live-action adaptation which is set to retell the story of Aang and his friends attempting to take down the Fire Nation. Recently finishing filming a major scene for the first season, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Daniel Dae Kim, who play Uncle Iroh and Fire Lord Ozai respectively, took the internet to state that the scene they just completed will be one for the record books.

During the original Avatar The Last Airbender series, Iroh and Ozai never had a head-to-head fight, with Iroh spending the majority of the series looking out for his nephew Prince Zuko. While originally seen as a much more laid back character in the expansive cast of the Nickelodeon production, the fourth season gave Iroh some major hard-hitting moments when he was able to escape captivity and join with his fellow members in the White Lotus to battle against the final assault by Ozai. With both Lee and Kim stating that they shared the same scene, could the live-action adaptation give fans a fight that was never seen in the original series or is this a retelling of Zuko's original banishment from the Fire Nation?

Avatar News captured the moment wherein the two actors reflect on the epic scene that they had apparently filmed earlier that day, with actor Paul Sun-Hyung Lee sporting facial hair that definitely screams Uncle Iroh when compared to the fire bender that remains a fan favorite:

While this upcoming adaptation is currently in production, the series has yet to reveal when it will arrive on Netflix proper. Aside from both Sun-Hyung Lee and Dae Kim, the current roster of actors that will bring the world of bending to life include Gordon Cormier as Aang the Avatar, Kiawentiio Tarbell as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, Dallas Liu as Zuko, Elizabeth Yu as Azula, Maria Zhang as Suki, Ken Leung as Commander Zhao, Lim Kay Siu as Gyatso, Yvonne Chapman as Avatar Kyoshi, Tamlyn Tomita as Yukari, and Casey Camp-Horinek as Gran Gran.

What do you think this epic scene will be in the world of benders? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
