What about Aang?
Netflix revealed that his character might not be exactly as you remember him. “Aang’s gonna look different,” said Katara actor Nicola Peltz in an interview with IGN. “He doesn’t have my hair anymore.” They’re keeping certain details of Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix specific so we’ll have to wait and see what changes happen when the show finally comes out next year.
Cast and Voice Actors for Netflix Adaptation
Netflix tapped a diverse group of actors for this adaptation and we’re loving it! When they announced that Aang would be voiced by newcomer Noah Ringer, fans were excited to see what he would bring to the role. “I’m just so happy,” said Peltz when she heard her Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix co-star was going to play Aang’s voice in motion capture footage on set since she can’t do that herself as Katara.

- Mark Hamill
- Grey DeLisle
- Greg Baldwin
