Production

On Jan. 8, 2007 (10 years ago), Paramount pictures (wallpaper) and Nickelodeon Movies announced that they had signed M. Night Shyamalan to write, direct and produce a trilogy of live-action movies based on the series; the first of these movies will encompass the main characters' adventures in Book One. The movie was in a dispute with James Cameron's movie Avatar regarding title ownership, which resulted in the movie being titled The Last Airbender.

According to an interview with the co-creators in SFX Magazine, Shyamalan came across Avatar when his daughter wanted to be Katara for Halloween. Intrigued, Shyamalan researched and watched the series with his family. "Watching Avatar has become a family event in my house... so we are looking forward to how the story develops in season three," said Shyamalan. "Once I saw the amazing world that Mike and Bryan created, I knew it would make a great feature film." He added he was attracted to the spiritual and martial arts influences on the show.

Avatar co-creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko voiced their opinion within an interview regarding M. Night Shyamalan writing, directing and producing the film. The two displayed much enthusiasm over Shyamalan's decision for the adaptation, stating that they admire his work and, in turn, he respects their material. M. Night Shyamalan said he will write the second movie while preparing to shoot the first.

Paramount pictures (wallpaper) has budgeted an estimated $250 million for the entire trilogy with $100 to $130 million budgeted for the first film.

Filming

Pre-production began in late 2008 (9 years ago), while filming began in Mar. 2009 (8 years ago) in Greenland. After two weeks, the cast and crew moved to Reading, Pennsylvania to commence filming at the Pagoda on Mount Penn on Apr. 2. According to Frank Marshall, as of Jun. 27, official filming has finished. The movie is currently in post-production.

Score

On May 13, 2009 (8 years ago), producer Frank Marshall announced on his Twitter account that 8-time Academy Award-nominated composer James Newton Howard was recording music for the teaser trailer. Howard has also composed the musical score for The Sixth Sense and all of Shyamalan's subsequent films.

Marketing

The teaser trailer for the movie was attached to Transformers (5 walls): Revenge of the Fallen, released in theaters on Jun. 24, 2009 (8 years ago). The teaser trailer was also shown on Entertainment Tonight, Jun. 22, 2009 (8 years ago) as an ET network exclusive. The ad for the movie was attached to Nick.com, the home for the original series. The trailer shows Aang airbending in a temple which is being attacked by multitudes of Fire Nation ships.
