Netflix’s ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Season 2 Set to Deep-Dive into Iroh-Ozai Relationship, Teases Daniel Dae Kim


Key Takeaways:

– Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Season 2 may explore the dynamics between General Iroh and Fire Lord Ozai.
– Actor Daniel Dae Kim discussed the potential plot line with Teen Vogue, signalling a character exploration that differs from the original animated series.
– The show has already started to deep-dive into their relationship with three key scenes in the current season.

As customary opposites, Fire Lord Ozai and General Iroh reflect diametrically contrasting aspects in the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe. However, the original animated series didn’t provide much insight into their individual character arcs and inter-relationship. This lacuna could be filled with Netflix’s adaptation, as actor Daniel Dae Kim recently hinted in an interview with Teen Vogue.

Exploring Iroh’s and Ozai’s Relationship in Avatar’s Second Season

Netflix’s Season 2 of Avatar: The Last Airbender might delve deeper to uncover the dynamics between Ozai and Iroh. Discussing this previously unexplored territory, Kim projected a fresh perspective asserting, “What is the relationship between the two of them when the second son supersedes the first? And how does Iroh feel about all of that? We never really see that explored.” He further expressed his interest in understanding the fate of Azula and Zuko’s mother — a question that many fans of the franchise are also keen to unravel.

What This Could Mean for Character Development and Storytelling

Despite being intriguing, the idea of directly exploring the relationship between Ozai and Iroh can be challenging. The dearth of instances facilitating direct interaction between the two characters could require creation of flashback scenes from their youth. However, given the Netflix series has begun exploring more of their relationship, there’s a promise for more layered storytelling.

Early Signs of the Exploration in Netflix’s Avatar

Three particular scenes in the current season hint at a richer unfolding of the Ozai-Iroh narrative. First, viewers witness Ozai empathizing with Iroh over his son Lu Ten’s demise. Next, Iroh attempts to prevent Ozai from provoking Zuko into an Agni Kai. The third instance finds Iroh trying to shield Ozai from communicating with Zuko after the interaction.

These narrative cues suggest that Netflix’s version of Avatar: The Last Airbender has an ideological shift towards exploring individual character arcs, albeit following the broad narrative storyline. This potential character deep-dive could provide fans with an engaging, parallel narrative dimension unseen in the original animated series.

As Netflix’s adaptation shapes up, fans are eager to watch how this potential exploration of the Iroh-Ozai relationship unfolds. It could provide a fresh perspective to the existing storyline and lend more depth to the complex Avatar universe. Daniel Dae Kim’s insights have heightened this anticipation as the audience awaits the premiere of the show’s next season. Stay tuned for more updates on Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Season 2.
