While the jury’s still out on whether we’ll get a chance to see the second chapter of Aang’s quest to save the world and unite the elemental nations, one thing’s for sure: “The Last Airbender” will arrive on DVD (and Blu-Ray) down the road. When I had the chance to chat with “Airbender” director M. Night Shyamalan, I asked him what we’re likely to see on the DVD release of the film — and whether we’ll eventually get a “director’s cut” of “The Last Airbender.”
“All my movies are the director’s cut, so that’s it,” he laughed. “You get to watch it in the movie theaters.”
Still, Shyamalan indicated that a few of the “Last Airbender” deleted scenes he described last week will likely find their way onto the home version of the film — with one exception.
“I do want to show some of the scenes I cut out,” he explained. “I probably won’t show the Kyoshi Warriors because I want to save them for the second movie, because I’m going to have to introduce them all over again.”
“There are a lot of scenes I took out that I want to show you,” he added.
While he wouldn’t go into too many specifics, Shyamalan hinted that some of the more comedic elements of the project should make the cut for the DVD’s bonus features, especially after he spent so much time cutting them out the film.
“Actually, some [scenes] that were a little too comic, they’re in the DVD,” he said.
