With the current incarnation of the Avatar yet to emerge, the world has loses hope until Aang (Gordon Cormier), a young airbender, reawakens to take his rightful place. Alongside new friends Sokka (Ian Ousley) and Katara (Kiawentiio), siblings and members of the Southern Water Tribe, Aang embarks on a quest to save the world and fight back against Fire Lord Ozai (Daniel Dae Kim), though Prince Zuko (Dallas Liu) is determined to capture him.
