Like the animated show, the series is set in a war-torn kingdom and draws inspiration from various Asian and Native American cultures.

Now, faced with the difficult task of thwarting the aggressive ambitions of the militaristic Fire Nation, whose goal is to dominate the world, Aang must accept the role of peacekeeper. Accompanied by his new allies Katara and Sokka, Aang embarks on a journey to master the four elements, while being relentlessly pursued by Zuko, the exiled crown prince of the Fire Nation, driven by the desire to redeem his honor by capturing the Avatar.
