Now Katara and Sokka are blond and the single main character they cast in the movie as Asian has been switched to be white as well!!

Oh, wow. This is even more glaringly obvious in its wrongness when they become animated characters again. I wouldn't have thought that was possible.

Wow, you'd think there were not already PERFECTLY GOOD animated character designs for them to fall back on! Oh, but this isn't actually based on A:TLA, it's based on Shyamalan's clusterfuck.

I'm looking at Katara being all cute!magical!girl! and I just want to cry.

We were at the movies yesterday and saw the extended trailer. My honey leaned over and said, "Shyamalan really doesn't like dark skinned people does he?"

Mind you, she had no idea about the whitewashing.

I just. I can't even. I don't even have words right now, just loud, enraged noises to convey my despair. Aaauuugh.

I don't even understand WHY THIS EXISTS. Am I just so disconnected from reality that I overestimate how popular the series was BEFORE the movie that it now needs a comic based on THE MOVIE in case you HAVEN'T MANAGED TO GRASP THE STORY YET? Or do we just need to come out with as many products as possible with the new, whitewashed character designs so people will forget the original source.

So much hate, all I can do is gnash my teeth and capslock forever.

Oh they're not color casting at all. They just took Zuko, the one POC left in the kids, and did THAT.

In from following Network:

You know, if that's supposed to be "Katara" wearing a kimono, uh, the way she's wearing it is saying she's dead. Only corpses for burial wear kimono like that. (Cultural information is important.)

The artist is telling us the False!Katara is already dead! Someone (probably the real Katara) already killed her.

Other than that, yeah, I feel the urge to kill something.

Thank you. I was wondering what people meant about that. I'm so ignorant that there are whole *worlds* of fail I'm missing! And even so I'm really, really unhappy with this. That folded-palm pose, everything angled inward on herself - I don't need to know anything about martial arts styles to know that's not Katara. Katara is all curves of water opening outward and connecting *really hard*. It may look pretty, but it's tremendously forceful.
