Back in the 2000s, Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. With its captivating story, rich worldbuilding, complex characters, and perfect blend of silliness and seriousness, it quickly became one of the most beloved animated TV shows of all time. Now, Netflix is bringing the world of Avatar back to life with an all-new live-action remake. Let's take a closer look at the cast members who will be bringing these beloved characters to life.

Main Cast - Four Key Characters

Gordon Cormier as Avatar Aang

Our protagonist, Aang, is the Avatar, the one person who has the power to control all four elements: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Aang starts the series as an energetic and outspoken kid, with flashes of the seriousness we'd expect from the Avatar himself. Gordon Cormier, a relatively unknown Canadian actor, perfectly embodies the essence of Aang. With his skateboarding and parkour skills, he'll surely bring Aang's airbending stunts to life.

Kiawentiio as Katara and Ian Ousley as Sokka

Katara and Sokka are siblings from the Southern Water Tribe and make up the core trio in the first season. Katara is a skilled waterbender and wise beyond her years, while Sokka provides comic relief with his witty remarks and love for boomerangs. Kiawentiio, in her breakout role, brings depth and emotion to Katara, while Ian Ousley adds charm and humor to Sokka.
