More on the The Last Airbender controversy...

The Media Action Network for Asian Americans just sent a letter to the producer of the Avatar movie. You can read it here.

[No, not the James Cameron's Avatar. I don't care he has first dibs; I shall refer to the more awesome of the two by its original name. As in, the animated series by Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko.]

Here's to hoping that the casting shall be righted, including Zuko's (just 'cuz he's Asian doesn't mean you can randomly 'cast one in'), and that M Night Shyamalan won't deviate TOO much from the source material.

UPDATE: The East West Players (an Asian American theatre organization co-founded by Mako, voice of Uncle Iroh) have also sent a letter to the producers. More info on that here.
