Gordon Cormier is back home for ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’

Gordon Cormier is happy to be back home.

“It’s nice to be back here, my homeland. I haven’t been here for quite a while because of the pandemic. It’s really nice to see my family,” Cormier said.

Cormier, who plays the young Avatar Aang, is currently in the Philippines to promote Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender with Gordon Liu who portrays Prince Zuko.

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Netflix’s live adaptation of the loved Nickelodeon animated television series, follows Aang (Cormier), the last Air Nomad and the next Avatar, as he masters the four elements of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air, and wield them to protect the world threatened by the ruthless Fire Nation and its equally terrifying leader, Fire Lord Ozai (Daniel Dae Kim).

Aang and his friends — siblings Sokka (Ian Ousley) and Katara (Kiawentiio) — must navigate the difficult journey to restore balance in the world, all while evading the pursuit of the Fire Nation and its relentless Crown Prince Zuko (Liu).

The series is helmed by showrunner and writer Albert Kim (Sleepy Hollow, Nikita) and executive produced by Jabbar Raisani (Lost in Space, Stranger Things) and Michael Goi, alongside directors Roseanne Liang and Jet Wilkinson. The ensemble cast consists of Gordon Cormier, Dallas Liu, Ian Ousley, Kiawentiio, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, and Daniel Dae Jim.

“Avatar: The Last Airbender” premieres globally on 22 February exclusively on Netflix.
