Avatar: The Last Airbender fans have received some insight about Kyoshi’s role in Netflix’s upcoming live-action adaptation.
Speaking with Cliché Magazine, as reported by Avatar News, actor Yvonne Chapman, who is playing Avatar Kyoshi, explained how her character will serve as “a source of tough love for Aang.” She stated, “She sometimes has a different perspective from the other Avatars. She’s a very fierce person, and she is going to be able to guide Aang in what needs to be done in his circumstances. Kyoshi is going to be able to give Aang the advice that he needs to hear at the time that he needs to hear it.”
Chapman also discussed her faith in Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series and in the production team behind the project. “The showrunners and creators have such a passion for the story. They were all fans of it growing up, so there is a great deal of respect for the source material, and they’ve kept in mind the audience that is going to be watching has grown up with the show,” the actor said. “I think it’s going to be really great, and I can’t wait to see it.” She praised Gordon Cormier, who will play Aang, as well.
Beyond Chapman and Cormier, the cast of the live-action series features many talented actors. Notably, Daniel Dae Kim, who portrayed Jin-Soo Kwon in Lost and Chin Ho Kelly in Hawai Five-0, will take on the role of Firelord Ozai and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who appeared in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, will bring fan-favorite Uncle Iroh to life. Other members of the cast include Kiawentiio as Katara and Ian Ousley as Sokka.
The World of Avatar: The Last Airbender
Netflix’s upcoming show isn’t the only project that will expand the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender; a new animated movie will debut in October 2025. The film will follow Aang and his friends as adults, and fan theories speculate that the plot will revolve around Team Avatar’s efforts to help the world recover from the Hundred-Year War.
Furthermore, another project will adapt the events of the Chronicles of the Avatar novels by F. C. Yee. A casting call went out earlier this year for the character of Hei-Ran, who trained Avatar Kyoshi as a firebender.
The original Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon is available to stream on Paramount+. A premiere date for the live-action series has not yet been confirmed.
