The Last Airbender is without a doubt one of the most anticipated movies left of 2010 (it made Screen Rant‘s top 20 list) and we have something to fuel that fire of anticipation even further. Apple has just debuted the third trailer for The Last Airbender and you’ll be glad to know it’s just as awesome as the previous ones.

As if most of you need reminding, but just in case you want to be or aren’t familiar with it, here’s the plot for The Last Airbender:

Based on the popular Nickelodeon cartoon, the film brings things to live-action life as our main character, Aang, a young successor to a long line of “Avatars,” seeks to stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air Nations. It stars Noah Ringer (Aang), Jackson Rathbone (Sokka), Dev Patel (Zuko), Nicola Peltz (Katara), Cliff Curtis (Firelord Ozai) and Jessica Andres (Suki).

The trailer is only on Apple for the time being so you’ll have head over there to check it out (we’ll have it embedded ASAP). But be sure to come back to Screen Rant to tell us what you thought!

The Last Airbender Trailer #3

Okay, now that you’re back…

Wow, they’ve really been doing a great job putting together these trailers for the movie. I hope that’s because they’ve had such amazing footage to work with and it’s not just down to clever editors as is often the case these days.

It’s funny how movie anticipation works: When I first heard of the movie version of The Last Airbender I hadn’t even heard of the original cartoon series (originally titled Avatar: The Last Airbender). And the fact that Shyamalan was directing it made my thoughts turn from indifference to “what the hell?”

However, when the trailers and TV spots were released I began to get more and more excited for the movie and now it sits comfortably near the top of my most anticipated list.

What do you think of the latest trailer for The Last Airbender trailer?

The Last Airbender will hit regular and 3D theaters (yes, the movie will be converted to 3D in post-production – groan…) on July 2nd, 2010.
