That’s right, you’ve read the title correctly, Daniel Dae Kim is joining the Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix live action series cast as Fire Lord Ozai. A huge thank you to Deadline for breaking this news. For those who don’t know, Fire Lord Ozai is the main villain of ATLA and one of the many things Aang has to overcome. It’s hard for me to go into more details in case we have those that haven’t watched one of the best shows of all time. I do have to say, that some things maybe different when it comes to this version of ATLA. I know not all adaptations are word for word, so prepare yourselves if they decide to go in a different direction.
Otherwise than that, I’m fine with this casting news. I never really thought who I would want to bring these characters to life in terms of live-action but I’m happy with the cast so far. Right now there’s no release date for when this series is expected to come out. I’m unsure if they even started filming but rest assured when they do and that trailer finally comes out. We’ll be the first to post it here.
