maybe the casting directors had this in mind when casting
That's actually false, the casting decisions were made in an attempt to, in their opinion, make the cast more diverse than the actual Asian characters. They did this horribly, and didn't listen to a word when the fans told them that or when the actual creators made their displeasure with the changes clear.

The reason that I don't want to see the movie is a racism issue. But whatever, I've made my point clear and I've plugged the website, so I'll be taking my leave now.

So tell me something Scuba. If you were to say the N word around a bunch of black guys without any intent of being racist, you'd be surprised if they kicked your ass? Racism doesn't just have to do with intent, it also has to do with perception, and I, as well as several hundreds of other Avatar fans and people who have never even seen the show but heard about the controversy, took one look at screengrabs of the characters and went "what idiots cast these with white characters?" as seen here. I advise reading up and seeing exactly where these allegations are coming from, since I really don't feel like doing it myself for the thousandth time (not to you, mind, I've had to do this argument a lot).

And yeah, Scuba, I realize that Shamylan is South Asian. I also realize that racism, when unintentional, can come from anybody at anybody regardless of race.
Well I would never say that, but if I did, then yeah, in the US, that word is taboo to them. But then, there is some black people who don't care. See it's sort of misty, do you think that every Asian person thinks this is racist? I just don't really by it. To be bluntly honest, I personally think it's people trying to start something, just to make it a controversial.

But yeah lets just turn this thread back into the right direction and off of racism.

I never knew there was one who hated in passion. Glad I got to know you, Gemma. Yes, this trailer really made me go "zomgwtf"; especially when I saw Appa flying in the first few seconds!

Second thoughts, that Dragon might not be Roku's. I mean, it talks, and it appears out of nowhere. It's most likely HOE. I mean, KOH the face stealer.

Does Appa remind anyone else of the dragon from The NeverEnding Story?

Wtf is wrong with Uncle Iroh, Commander Zhao, and the Fire Lord. He basically just chose a whole family of Arabs, threw them into the Fire Nation's roles, and called it a day. Oh, and they could've done much better on Zuko's scar.

Princess Yue looks almost exactly like she does in the show, which impressed me.

I really whish that the co-creators would pick better actors, it looks like the movie was rushed into! But I hope things come out better!
