What's with Germany?

Seems like all the Last Airbender promo pics are coming out of the German avatar fan website
Herr-Der-Elemente.de http://www.web.herr-der-elemente.de/
Does it mean Viacom started the promo early in Europe?
I know that Dreamworks has released some movies earlier in Europe (or Russia), so is it what's going to happen with The Last Airbender?
Anyway, updating with the pics, plus the mug shots one of the previous post but bigger.

Katara, you do look like you're wearing a ceinture flechee, which makes me believe the Water Tribe are French Canadians (or Metis).
Aang, you still look like you had a terrible night's sleep.

Who is the mysterious earthbender in this promo pic...
EDIT: riichan suggested Bumi- it would make sense, plus the city in the background has the slope like Omashu.

All gone- they had no access to blue to color their fabrics.

Ooh, nice seeing a bigger shot of the costumes. I don't mind that they're not blue; blue fur would look a little strange, I think.

The special effects on that waterbending promo shot look pretty nifty! And I see that Zuko's ponytail has survived--on his helmet! Wondering who that Earthbender guy is, too...
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 05:30 am (UTC)
Heh, Zuko transplanted his ponytail to his helmet.
The more I look at the earthbender, the more I'm wondering if Long Feng didn't jump one chapter down from 2 to 1.

I wanna see Toph, not Mysterious Bald Earthbender!

Toph shouldn't appear in the first chapter.
Someone suggested Bumi.
Eh, why not at this point?

X\ I just don't know... I am trying to get excited but its sort of difficult. Zuko just looks so wonky and lets not get started on the watertribe folks. Where the heck are the Zhao pics D: Hurry, Germany!
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 05:39 am (UTC)
Yes, come on Germany! We need Zhao pics!
I will start telling everyone the Water Tribe siblings are in fact French Canadians (still pointing at Katara's Ceinture Fléchée like belt as evidence).

When I fist saw the mysterious earthbender, I immediately thought at The Ember Island Players Toph ;). But this is book one so it would be Bumi?
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 05:39 am (UTC)
Bumi seems to be the best guess, what with the city in the BG looking like Omashu.

The sloped city in the background would suggest Omashu, which would make this Bumi.
Possibly not an old Bumi, possibly not as crazy either.

forgive me for not remembering the actors names. But for just their looks...

So when I saw the kid who they picked for zuko, I thought, wow, he kind of looks a bit big eared and goofy for this, but it works I think. Grrrr angry zuko, angst that angst you, Wonder if they'll be going for the top knot later on and are filming the pre shaved look first.

Ang--gah stop pouting and smile!

Katara and Saka-- Woah, white, white, paler than pale, Nordic levels of pale. Wonder why they didn't go the rest of the way and find a couple of blonds...
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 02:04 pm (UTC)
Can you imagine the internet uproar IF they had been blonde?
Ahaha! Oh the drama levels the Avatar fandom would have reached...

I would have to say your best guess is probably THE best guess. That bg there looks like Omashu.
If anything, this movie will have pretty fx.

Damn, everything fun happens at night when I'm asleep. XD

I'm surprised that this comes from a German fansite - especially Herr der Elemente - cause this site was never reliable when is comes to find information for the show.

Anyway, it seems someone found a PDF file with some promo material from Viacom's page.: Original source
The pictures don't seem to work for me right now. But I could see them this morning and they look like a pretty cheap presentation. I had to laugh so hard when they described Noah's charming personality and illustrated it with that terrible shot. LMAO. This is so much fail on all accounts.

For the pictures themselves, they absolutely demonstrate how ethnic the characters in the series actually looked like. I still can't believe how many fans are willing to delude themselves and think "Oh that pale Rathobone looks exactly like Sokka". /facepalm

I really really would have loved to be excited for the movie - but everything they did so far was ruining the fun.

And that bald Earthbender better not be Bumi! BUMI IS SUPPOSED TO BE OLD AND CRAZY, DAMMIT! >:[
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 02:11 pm (UTC)
It may be possible the PDF material was a bit...leaked and someone with search skills managed to get their hands on it. Now the PDF and all related images seems to have been blocked or deleted.
If the presentation was a bit lackluster, it may have been a work in progress document, not intended for wide release.
when will studios learn how voracious the internet can be in terms of images once leaked!
I guess they couldn't find any great old and crazy actors to give Bumi's character's justice?
I don't know.

Okay, I'm trying to not be picky because it's hard to adapt things too a movie. And all things considered, they look alright. I like their costumes.

...but they even got rid of her hair loopies? WHY??

I'm going to be 100% honest here: I am excited! I have chosen to ignore the race-fail and whatnot and just treat this movie like an AU; personally I like the new WT outfits more, as the blue always bothered me due to dye availability and efficiency. Most northern tribes in history used every bit of an animal in the most efficient way possible, and dyeing large pelts and pieces of leather purely for aesthetics didn't make sense to me.

plus I don't see the point in complaining; it's not as if they're gonna change it x)

"Eille Sokka, tchek c'que j'ai trouvé!!"

Moi je dit que ca a plein de potentiel haha XD

Plus ils en montrent, plus je suis décue a chaque fois... On dirait qu'ils essaient fort d'enlever toute la magie et le coté imaginatif de la série. Je trouve les costumes hyper ennuyants...

Aussi, j'suis littérallement partie a rire en voyant Sokka, c'est pas bon signe XP
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 02:20 pm (UTC)
Ha ha! Ouais! Y nous faut une version Quebecoise avec le joual beurre epais en masse pour le plein effet!
Pour les costumes...bof, c'est okay. Rien de tres excitant, c'est vrai.
On dirait bien qu'ils se sont dit allons-y mollo dans le look de l'adapation, en se disant que ca ferait plus realiste. Je sais pas.
Ha! Si tu as rit en voyant Sokka, imagine ce qui va arriver quand je vais voir Zhao! XD

My biggest beef with Aang is... he looks FAR too serious. Where is the naturally smiling boy?

I'm afraid the whitey mcwhiterthanthou Water tribe kids look jarringly out of place to me.

At that angle, Patel is marginally more Zuko but he's still not Zuko. I keep wanting to switch roles between him and the dude playing Sokka.

Hmmm.....Better, but still not great. So hate kitty remains (I don't get to use him enough)

Except the water bending effect. That looks awesome.

To respond to something you said in the other post: Oh yeah, the soundtrack...I hope the track team gets to do the movie.
The trailer's music though...was that Hahn Zimmerman?
loveroftheflame
Jul. 14th, 2009 04:26 pm (UTC)
Ok after my initial freak out, I have to admit I am looking forward to the bending and SFX. Those at least will be amazing.

I do wonder who that Earthbender is but I'm thinking that it's probably Bumi since that city looks like Omashu but who knows. I'm still wondering if that casting call for an Earthbending boy is Haru...

And where are Zhao and Iroh! I can't wait to see them. :D
hobbitnat
Jul. 14th, 2009 05:20 pm (UTC)
it looks not to bad.... i hate Aang though he looks like a pouty 5 year old instead of a care free happy go lucky 12 year old :(

I love the Zuko, he's pretty awesome, even without his unicorn hair :I

"Katara, you do look like you're wearing a ceinture flechee, which makes me believe the Water Tribe are French Canadians (or Metis)."-
LOL!

I wonder who they have playing Zaoh? you know?

No, I won't be able to take him seriously but I still can't wait to see official pics.
