There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the upcoming The Last Airbender film…
…and somehow, I don’t think this picture from SlashFilm is going to make it any easier.
While many fans were up in arms about the initial casting of the film before Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel was brought on board — with a predominantly white cast for a franchise steeped in Asian and Inuit mythology — I just feel weirded out by looking at this picture. I can’t stop seeing that Dancing Baby, only as a ninja. What do you think?
The M. Night Shyamalan-directed film is due out July 2nd, 2010.
