There's a discussion going on at the TWOP forums about the movie, to which the lovely jedifreac and others are trying valiantly to debunk comment gems like:
Katara herself ACTS like modern white teenager albeit with some distinct differences.
I mean Zuko's character is practically a cliche (incensed arrogant honor obsessed kungfu guy). How's this going to attract asian actors who want to be taken as nonforeign or stuck doing kungfu.
....Yeah. We've come to the bottom of the argument!barrel, folks. Here's how far the resistance!against!asians! has taken people.
There's also a neutral announcement article at AceShowBiz. I wanted to comment with a link to aang-aint-white, but I kept getting an error. Maybe the website only accepts US IPs? I dunno, but if anyone can help out.
ETA: HOLY MOLY, SCIFI WIRE PICKED UP THE STORY WE'RE MAKING PROGRESS.
I have no idea who that 'Sammy' person is....>.> Sure 'she' got a little misquoted, but. Uh. There it be. Also, I always love when people who have never seen the show and KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT feel they have a right to tell fans and/or PoCs what to think. Thanks for being a douche, come again!
