Why Netflix Should Beg Michael Dante DiMartino to Comeback After Switching Katara and Sokka Age?

Avatar: The Last Airbender siblings Katara and Sokka will swap ages in Netflix’s live-action series, according to a report from The Illuminerdi.

This is such a terrible decision by the executives at Netflix and new show runner Albert Kim. Sokka’s role as Big Brother not just to Katara, but to the whole crew is so instrumental to his character and the show. Sokka took pride and made a lot of great decisions for the crew in that position. Fans really got to see step into the role of being their leader figure especially when Hakoda left for war. This really takes away from his relationship with Katara, so many funny jokes and comebacks came from being the older sibling. Plus, Sokka is not a bender so your really taking a lot of power away from his character. His character arc is vital to the show.

Katara, the younger sibling who’s supposed to be carefree took pride in stepping into the mother role. This is vital to her and Sokka relationship because she would always have to check him when he was immature. This is also weird because now she’s four years older than Aang. The typical 16-year-old wouldn’t have feelings for a 12-year-old boy. Which could be instrumental in the live action series. Katara would look at Aang as a little brother instead of a romantic partner.

Michael Dante DiMartino announced in August 2020 that he and co-creator Bryan Konietzko had exited the Netflix live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender over creative differences.

Do you think they exited over this situation?
