Avatar: Last Airbender, or that film based on a POC cast but is NOW white, except for the bad guys

Saw the Avatar: Last Airbender trailer.

Um, yeah. Wow, they are really white, and why is the music so, um, western? Oh wait, it is because they want to make a white film about white stuff, except, oh, look, the main 'bad' guy is Indian.

Yeah, I rather spend all my money on Twilight films than this film. Fuck this shit.

*nodnodnodnodnod* Yeah, and even aside from the problematic privilege issues, etc.?

Dammit, Katara's color palette is all wrong! So's Sokka's! The colorist needs to go back and make Katara and Sokka look like Katara and Sokka! It's just jarring!

Also, Iroh needs to GAIN SOME WEIGHT.

I didn't even spot Iroh!

Oh, gods. The sad thing is the preview looks shiny, but all I can think about is, oh yay! Another white film!

*SIGHS*.

Iroh's being played by the skinny, long-nosed white guy with dreads. (See rufftoon's journal for some totally hysterical art.)
