For a brief moment in the early 2000’s, people were referring to M Night Shyamalan as “The Next Spielberg.” With popular hits like The Sixth Sense and Signs, it seemed like the director was going to churn out classic after classic. But then came The Village… Lady in the Water… The Happening… Opinions started to change. Then came “The Last Airbender” in 2010, which not only solidified the new, negative public opinion of Shyamalan, but also enraged fans of the animated series around the world.
The Last Airbender definitely raises a lot of questions. Like why rush through twenty episodes in ninety minutes? Why is there so much narration and exposition? Why are everybody’s names being pronounced weird? Why doesn’t anyone have any personality? Why does bending look so weird? What was up with that Earth Tribe scene? Who thought this was a good idea?!
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the pitch meeting that led to The Last Airbender! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

"and these different nations... is there a way we can tell them apart?" "yes, sir, they actually have different ethnicities! Like, for exemple, the good guys in the water nation have dark skin and look like inuit people, while the bad guys from the fire nation have light skin and eyes" "right ,right... we're gonna change that though." "uh-What?" "oh! no no no! its not what you're thinking!" "oh, thank goodness! for a second ther..." "i just prefere the good guys to be white and the bad guys to be brown!" "omigod..."

I am perplexed by your failure to mention or even hint at the whitewashing which was the single most heinous sin committed by the failed adaptation called "The Last Airbender". I love Screen Rant and the Pitch Meeting series, and I'm left kinda disappointed by this one.

Earthbending is based on "Hung Gar Kung Fu", thats the original Shaolin Kung Fu and it has 5000 years of history. The Show really catched it up with powerful moves and wise words but this film ... is insulting

I fell like you put about a thousand times more thought into your 7minite video then the studio put into the whole of their movie. I also feel that if they had put a full 7minities of though into the movie, they would have known why it shouldn't have been made the way it was!

to be fair about the moon fish part, the same amount of character development was done for the white haired girl. its just 'oh hey sokka really likes this chick because she's like cute or something so she's important now' i get she had the moon give her life, but before that was actually shown we didnt know that

Taking into the account that this movie was written, directed, and produced by M. Night Shyamalan, this video is true representation of conversation that was taken place in Night's head, where M. Night Shyamalan pitched a movie to M. Night Shyamalan
