Continuing on my Avatar: The Last Airbender fan cast, I also released fan casts on my personal blog for The Legend of Korra. Below is once again a list detailing my personal explanation for each of them.
Hit the break to read my fan cast for The Legend of Korra!
Normally don’t post these, but this is definitely much better than the one Korra Nation made. IMDB also has a list of Native American/First Nations actors if anyone wants to give it their own shot: http://www.imdb.com/list/R0EAcZ5CP2A/
Everyone in the fancast above looks so fabulous.
A. Ezra Miller
B. Jared Leto
C. Rami Malek (Voice of Tahno)
D. Nicholas Hoult
E. Someone we haven’t thought of? Tell us below!
The official “Legend of Korra” wants to know who fans would cast for Tahno. They suggest several options: not even one actor is of Asian or First Nations descent.
It’s just a fantasy casting, but still disappointing to see from the official tumblr. On the other hand, a fantasy casting means it’s pretty low stakes…and yet actors from these two underrepresented groups still can’t compete— and are invisible from the speculation and discussion—when it is rare enough to have fantasy world characters like Tahno that resemble them at all.
I feel that it’s only fair to give everyone a heads up: I was not amused or satisfied by the goings-on in this finale. There were a few bright spots, but overall? COMPLETE AND UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT.
So much for Korra being a “strong female character”.
Season 2’s gonna have to be full of diamonds, because wow. And then the Amon whitewashing. (Good grief, whitewashing is everywhere, isn’t it?) I love LoK, but that was disappointing. Gonna have to change my desktop image so I don’t collapse from disappoint. QQ sigh. I’m going to need for the things I love to stop stabbing me point-blank.
