Avatar: The Last Airbender

Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender star Daniel Dae Kim has compared the characterization of Fire Lord Ozai to the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Kim is no stranger to the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise, having voiced General Fong in the original show and Hiroshi Sato in the follow-up series The Legend of Korra. He will be returning in the new Netflix live-action remake of the series, which is set to premiere on February 22. He stars alongside Gordon Cormier as Aang, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Iroh, Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko, and Elizabeth Yu as Azula.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his feelings toward returning to Avatar: The Last Airbender and the process of finding the character, Kim explained what drew him to the role. It was the unapologetic, evil nature of Ozai that excited him the most in tackling the character, and he even compared the Fire Lord to one of the most iconic villains of all time: Darth Vader.
