Night Talks Sequel

July 6, 2010

Having grossed $51.8 million over the Fourth of July weekend, The Last Airbender’s current domestic box office now stands at $69.3 million after only five days! Director M. Night Shyamalan already has the entirety of the sequel mapped out, with Summer Bishil becoming the main antagonist for the remainder of the films.

“The third is more ambiguous, but the second one, I’ve written a draft that I’m really happy with and is darker and richer, and it has a wonderful antagonist in it in Azula, who’s kind of like our only real, pure antagonist in the series, so I’m excited about that.”

Night also spoke on the absence of the Kyoshi Warriors from the first film, and hints that we might not see them on the eventual home release.

“I probably won’t show the Kyoshi Warriors because I want to save them for the second movie, because I’m going to have to introduce them all over again.”

“We shot [the scene] and [the Kyoshi Warriors] were amazing, and we spent an unbelievable amount of time choreographing them,” he said. “And they just distracted from the movie, because the movie wasn’t about them.”

Of course, all of these plans hinge on The Last Airbender’s box office success.
