What she's thinking:
Why hasn't Ouran High School Host Club gotten more seasons? The manga went on for a few more volumes and it was probably one of the best anime in the mid 2000s and had themes that were ahead of its time. It is more than deserving of a sequel and it should get one immediately!
Here’s how M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to The Last Airbender should go:
Proceed from the first movie. The plot roughly follows Season 2. They’re looking for an earthbending teacher for Aang, and finally encounter Toph. She is played by a large, musclebound man.
Suddenly we zoom out. Everyone is on a stage. The real Gaang (appropriately cast) watches from the audience. We have been watching the movie’s version of the Ember Island Players this entire time. What a twist.
HEY IT’S A (really late) VALENTINE’S DAY SEQUEL TO THIS! You should really look at that to understand what’s going on, but as a quick backstory to this, Adrien found out the scarf he thought his dad gave him was from Marinette, it upset him too much so he gave it back to her.
And then I hated that it was just angst so I made this to make up for it? What started as a one page thing turned into a too-many-pages thing. Hence being like… 2 weeks later for V-day. Oh well! Enjoy!
I think the core thing that caused The Last Airbender to be the horrible, piece of shit movie that it is was the fact that Shyamalan clearly looked down on the TV series as just some dumb children’s show and not for the good thing it is. It really shows through in the movie that he thought that the show’s just a mindless cartoon made to momentarily distract children too dumb to comprehend the world around them. That was his first of many mistakes, and that, combined with his incompetence, laid the foundation for the film.
