I agree that the movie was one big exaggeration of what the world could become. I think that this movie was mean to tell kids to help save the world from all of the trash, but I don't think many kids got that from the movie. I think after kids watched it again and again they finally understood the really meaning. Reply Reply to Comment o

In the movie, there is so much waste that the Earth is uninhabitable. Reply Reply to Comment

Only days before Sozin's comet and the final battle with the Firelord the main protagonists decide to go to a Firenation play about their lives. They soon discover that the entire play is Firenation propaganda containing grotesque caricatures of the main cast. The tomboy character is played by a muscular man. The moral center of the group is portrayed as a manic sobbing crybaby. Sokka, the comic relief character and strategist of the group, is reduced to a bumbling buffoon. But our protagonists soon learn
