Avatar: The Last Airbender Fans looking in for the cast reunion on January 9 were thrilled to see the voices behind Aang, Sokka, Zuko, Toph, Uncle Iroh, and more at the Zoom party. The love for the series is still evident among the actors, and they had memories of working on the show and what it meant to them.
Who looked up? Dee Bradley Baker (Appa and Momo), Zach Tyler Eisen (Aang), Dante Basco (Zuko), Olivia Hack (Ty Lee), Cricket Leigh (Mai), Gray DeLisle-Griffin (Azula), Jack De Sena (Sokka), Michaela Murphy (Toph), and Greg Baldwin played Uncle Iroh after actor Mako Iwamatsu died.
They each took a moment to give out the names of their favorite events and wondered why so many people didn’t care about “The Big Department. ”Here are the ones that topped it off ATLA thrower lists.
This one has been mentioned several times for its focus on the two separate camps of teenagers. Zuko, Mai, Azula, and Ty Lee went on a beach vacation and learned about the “real people of their own,” while Aang and his team cooled at some hot springs until it appeared. Combustion Man.
There’s plenty of flirting, kissing, breaking up, make-up, and self-reflection in this Book Three program.
‘Siege of the North’
A two-part story about the fierce battle between the Fire Nation and the Northern Water Tribe, this man took Aang into the spirit world to help the spirits of the Moon and the Ocean. Although Admiral Zhao was determined to defeat the watermen, Zuko did not like it. After the two fights, the Zhao Ocean Spirit exploded.
The Water Tribe won, but this also marked the split between Iroh (and Zuko) and the Fire Nation.
‘Lost App Days’
Traditionally remembered by longtime fans as a rescuer, “Appa’s Lost Days” damaged what happened to Appa when it was kidnapped by sandpipers when Team Avatar was inside the library.
Appa was abused in a circus. He is then badly wounded in a fight with another creature, found and healed by Suki, but then has to escape. By the end of the episode, he is recaptured by Long Feng.
This was a Book Two program that focused on Zuko after he parted ways with Iroh and the Fire Nation. He spent some time in the Kingdom of the Earth with a kind family, keeping his identity secret until a later conflict in the program. The villagers who introduced him have rejected him.
Throughout the program, Zuko has problems while his mother was still around, but he also talks to the show’s theme about family and war.
Zach Tyler Eisen concluded that “The Guru” was one of his most memorable events where Aang learned how to master the avatar state through the chakras. An emotional breakdown occurs for his character as well as Zuko and Sokka in their own scenes in the story.
Michaela Murphy “The Library” fell as one of her favorites as she focused on Toph’s ability to find the place using her renowned ground skills.
She also has to keep the library from sinking while everyone is inside, and this is when sandpipers evict Appa. Toph has to make a terrible choice.
‘The Tales of Ba Sing Se’
Hosted by many of the ATLA team members, in this program there were many short stories rolled into one. Iroh, Momo, Aang, Sokka, Zuko, and Katara and Toph got their own insight into their individual experiences in Ba Sing Se. Baldwin described the program as “beautiful.”
‘Cave of two lovers’
Sokka must navigate an underground cave with forms of singing as he and Momo are separated from the rest of the gang in this love-filled and musical program. Dee Bradley Baker realized that there were so many songs mixed in this piece even though the show is not musical.
Among the times that Basco remembered as his favorites, “Dancing Dragon” was one where Aang and Zuko learn higher levels of firefighting due to an old style.
‘The way of the serpent’
Team Avatar ends up helping some refugees travel to Ba Sing Se – and they happen to be the same refugees Zuko stole in a previous program. After the journey harrows across the water, one of the refugees gives birth.
