Clearing up the confusion
Just in case anybody is still confused by this time...
To all the fans of the animated series AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER who are still a bit confused...
there are two movies that are upcoming.
One is entitled AVATAR, which is NOT based on the Avatar the Last Airbender animation. Rather, this is an upcoming 3-D science fiction epic film directed by James Cameron, who has also directed Titanic, The Abyss, and Terminator. The storyline of this movie revolves around the human invasion of a lush jungle-covered extraterrestrial moon known as Pandora. In order to infiltrate this world the humans must use genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars. The Avatars are living, breathing bodies that are controlled by a human "driver" through a technology that links the driver's mind to their Avatar body. This film is due to be released on December 18, 2009.

On the other hand, the film adaptation of the animated series Avatar the Last Airbender, is entitled THE LAST AIRBENDER. It is written, directed, and produced by M. Night Shyamalan. It is a live-action film adaptation of the first season of the animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, which has its influences from Asian art, mythology, and various martial arts fighting styles. The first of a planned trilogy, the film, starring Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, and Dev Patel, will be marketed and released by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies on July 2, 2010.
