Avatar: Last Airbender's Aang & Ozai Actors Face Off in New Behind-the-Scenes Photo

Avatar The Last Airbender's Aang (Gordon Cormier) & Ozai (Daniel Dae Kim) actors face off in behind-the-scenes image while shooting the remake.

Avatar: The Last Airbender stars Gordon Cormier, and Daniel Dae Kim recently posed for a behind-the-scenes photo. The two are set to play Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Ozai, the main protagonist and antagonist of the series. The live-action remake is shooting in Vancouver, British Colombia, for its premiere on Netflix.

Avatar: The Last Airbender, based on the Nickelodeon's beloved animated series of the same name, will tell the story of Aang, the Avatar capable of controlling all four elements, in a world where certain people can control one element. Aang is destined to bring peace to the four nations while Ozai, the Fire Nation lord, intends on world domination. Aang, only a child, must overcome his immaturity and naivety to take on the monumental task and bring about balance to Asiatic. The Avatar: The Last Airbender remake is highly anticipated by fans who grew up with the animated series.

On Instagram, Cormier posts the image of him posing with Kim, the two dressed in casual clothing. Cormier's pose is reminiscent of Aang's air-bending style seen in the original series, where Kim takes on a more dynamic pose in contrast to Ozai's more aged and dignified manner of fighting. Cormier includes the caption "Momo, time for you to go" in reference to Aang's pet Momo, the last known winged lemur. Check out the photo below!:

Cormier came to be known due to his performance as Joe in the 2020 remake of The Stand and is joined by Kiawentiio Tarbell, Ian Ousley, and Pen15 star Dallas Liu as Katara, Sokka, and Zuko, respectively. Kim, known for his work on Lost and Hawaii Five-O, made an appearance as General Fong in one episode of the original series in 2006. The new cast is made of people of AAIP descent to better reflect the original series' inspiration in terms of worldbuilding and setting.
