What parts from Season 1 do you HAVE to see in the movie?
Do you care if these moments are played out the same way, or do you just want them in somehow?

What parts can you truly live without?

On that note, would Kataang be the same if Movie!Aang is excessively more serious than Series!Aang? While I'm pretty sure the serious tone is due to marketing right now, I can't help but speculate about what kind of difference it could make to character relations if he was actually as serious as portrayed.

Will our ship be the way we like it, or will it be different to the point that it's just two characters with their names?

Hmm... this is a good question. I guess we can't really know until we see it, but one scene from the trailer that stood out to me -- when Aang was stuck in the middle of a fight, he was turning around with a confused/horrified expression as though he wasn't expecting the violence. So maybe...? I dunno, I'm not sure what part of the series that was, but I'm hoping that shows a little bit of the innocent!Aang characterization we knew and loved throughout most of season one. :)

First, I'm going to answer literally. If Aang were 'excessively' serious. Yes, I do think it would be different. You can't really change Aang's core personality and still call it 'Kataang'. <- This is an opinion. Though Aang does have his serious moments in the show, too much of ANYTHING is a bad thing.

On the other hand, various interviews with M. Night say that he cast Noah Ringer because he had a sincere gentleness that he felt was necessary for a monk destined to save the world.

Further more, the trailers seem to be mostly focused on attracting people who aren't familiar with the show: like the emphasis on action, the music, etc. The serious tone of the trailers could also fall into this category.

Since I think Aang's fun-loving, optimistic nature is part of what drew most of us to Kataang...well, me anyway...I'd say not. When you think about it, Aang being serious all the time is pretty much Zuko without a temper. So...that would make Kataang Zutara but a lot more boring. o_o

That.. is like the perfect way to put it. XDD
