0:01 - 0:05 Water, earth,
0:05 - 0:09 fire, air...
0:10 - 0:14 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:14 - 0:17 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:18 - 0:22 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them.
0:22 - 0:24 But when the world needed him most,
0:24 - 0:25 he vanished.
0:26 - 0:30 A hundred years passed, and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar,
0:30 - 0:31 an airbender named Aang.
0:31 - 0:34 And although his airbending skills are great,
0:34 - 0:37 he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:37 - 0:41 But I believe Aang can save the world.
1:13 - 1:15 Nice try, Pupil Sangok.
1:15 - 1:17 A couple of more years,
1:17 - 1:19 and you might be ready to fight a sea sponge.
1:21 - 1:22 Whoa!
1:23 - 1:26 Would anyone care for a rematch with Katara?
1:28 - 1:30 Katara, you've advanced more quickly
1:31 - 1:33 than any student I've ever trained.
1:33 - 1:35 You have proven that with fierce determination,
1:36 - 1:37 passion, and hard work,
1:37 - 1:39 you can accomplish anything.
1:40 - 1:43 Raw talent alone is not enough.
1:43 - 1:44 Pupil Aang!
1:44 - 1:45 Yes, Master Pakku?
1:45 - 1:48 Care to step into the sparring circle?
1:48 - 1:51 I figure since you've found time to play with house pets,
1:51 - 1:54 you must have already mastered waterbending.
1:54 - 1:55 I wouldn't say mastered,
1:55 - 1:57 but check this out!
2:07 - 2:09 So, they don't have palaces in the Southern Tribe?
2:10 - 2:11 Are you kidding?
2:11 - 2:12 I grew up in a block of ice.
2:12 - 2:14 It's not exactly a cultural hub.
2:17 - 2:19 Sokka, this is wrong.
2:19 - 2:21 What's wrong?
2:21 - 2:22 We're taking a walk!
2:22 - 2:23 I'm engaged.
2:23 - 2:25 It just feels...
2:26 - 2:28 I know what you need.
2:28 - 2:29 You need to meet my good friend Appa.
2:29 - 2:31 Who?
2:32 - 2:34 Appa and I go way back, don't we, boy?
2:34 - 2:36 Aagh! Easy!
2:36 - 2:37 Down, boy!
2:37 - 2:39 No, up!
2:39 - 2:42 Looks like you haven't been giving Appa enough attention.
2:44 - 2:46 So, how does this work?
2:46 - 2:47 You hanging on tight?
2:47 - 2:49 Mm-hmm.
2:49 - 2:50 Yip, yip.
2:51 - 2:54 Oh, my goodness!
2:55 - 2:56 Wow!
2:56 - 2:59 I can't believe you do this every day.
2:59 - 3:02 Yeah, we pretty much live up here.
3:02 - 3:05 Is it always this cold in the sky?
3:06 - 3:07 Not when you're with someone.
3:09 - 3:10 It's beautiful up here.
3:10 - 3:11 Yeah.
3:16 - 3:17 Whoo, yeah!
3:19 - 3:21 Good times, good times.
3:22 - 3:23 Hey, look.
3:24 - 3:25 What's happening?
3:27 - 3:28 Oh, no.
3:52 - 3:53 Soot. YUE: What?
3:53 - 3:55 I've seen it before.
3:55 - 3:57 Right before my village was attacked.
3:57 - 3:59 It's soot mixed with snow.
3:59 - 4:00 But why?
4:00 - 4:02 It's the Fire Nation.
4:02 - 4:04 They've closed in on the North Pole.
4:04 - 4:05 And from the looks of this stuff,
4:06 - 4:08 I'd say there's a lot of them.
4:11 - 4:15 This will truly be one for the history books, General Iroh.
4:15 - 4:18 Just think. Centuries from now,
4:18 - 4:20 people will study the Great Admiral Zhao,
4:20 - 4:21 who destroyed the last
4:21 - 4:23 of the Water Tribe civilization.
4:24 - 4:26 You're lucky you're here to see it.
4:26 - 4:29 Be careful what you wish for, Admiral.
4:29 - 4:32 History is not always kind to its subjects.
4:32 - 4:35 I suppose you speak from experience.
4:35 - 4:38 But, rest assured, this will be nothing like
4:38 - 4:41 your legendary failure at Ba Sing Se.
4:41 - 4:44 I hope not, for your sake.
4:44 - 4:47 Tell the captains to prepare for first strike.
4:55 - 4:57 We'll be landing soon.
4:57 - 4:58 Do you have a plan?
4:58 - 5:00 I'm working on it, Uncle.
5:10 - 5:12 What's wrong? We have to go!
5:12 - 5:13 No, Sokka.
5:13 - 5:14 Wait.
5:14 - 5:16 I can't see you anymore.
5:16 - 5:17 Not at all.
5:17 - 5:19 What? We're just friends.
5:19 - 5:21 I wish we could just be friends.
5:21 - 5:23 But I like you too much,
5:23 - 5:25 and it's too confusing to be around you.
5:25 - 5:27 I'm marrying someone else.
5:27 - 5:30 You don't love him, do you?
5:30 - 5:32 You don't even seem to like him.
5:32 - 5:34 But I do love my people.
5:34 - 5:36 You're not marrying them!
5:36 - 5:38 You don't understand.
5:38 - 5:39 I have duties to my father,
5:40 - 5:41 to my tribe.
5:41 - 5:42 I have to do this.
5:42 - 5:44 Good-bye.
5:47 - 5:50 The day we have feared for so long has arrived.
5:50 - 5:53 The Fire Nation is on our doorstep.
5:53 - 5:56 It is with great sadness
5:56 - 5:58 I call my family here before me,
5:59 - 6:02 knowing well that some of these faces
6:02 - 6:05 are about to vanish from our tribe.
6:06 - 6:09 But they will never vanish from our hearts.
6:10 - 6:13 Now, as we approach the battle for our existence,
6:13 - 6:17 I call upon the great spirits.
6:18 - 6:20 Spirit of the ocean,
6:20 - 6:23 spirit of the moon, be with us!
6:24 - 6:28 I'm going to need volunteers for a dangerous mission.
6:28 - 6:30 Count me in. Sokka...
6:30 - 6:31 Be warned.
6:32 - 6:34 Many of you will not return.
6:34 - 6:36 Come forward to receive my mark
6:36 - 6:39 if you accept the task.
7:06 - 7:09 The stillness before battle is unbearable.
7:09 - 7:11 Such a quiet dread.
7:11 - 7:14 I wasn't there when the Fire Nation attacked my people.
7:15 - 7:17 I'm gonna make a difference this time.
8:03 - 8:04 Yip, yip!
8:09 - 8:10 Katara!
8:33 - 8:35 I'll take it from here, boy.
9:45 - 9:46 Appa!
9:49 - 9:51 Thanks for the rescue, buddy.
10:12 - 10:14 You've gotta be kidding me.
10:17 - 10:20 Men, you'll be infiltrating the Fire Nation navy.
10:21 - 10:25 That means you'll all need one of these uniforms.
10:30 - 10:32 What's your problem?
10:32 - 10:34 Fire navy uniforms don't look like that.
10:34 - 10:36 Of course they do.
10:36 - 10:40 These are real uniforms captured from actual fire navy soldiers.
10:40 - 10:42 When, like, 100 years ago?
10:43 - 10:44 85.
10:44 - 10:46 The Fire Nation doesn't wear shoulder spikes anymore.
10:46 - 10:50 The newer uniforms are more streamlined.
10:50 - 10:51 How do we know we can trust this guy?
10:52 - 10:54 Such bold talk for a new recruit.
10:54 - 10:56 Sokka is from our sister tribe, Hahn.
10:56 - 11:01 He is a capable warrior, and I value his input.
11:01 - 11:04 Now, our first objective is to determine
11:04 - 11:07 the identity of their commanding officer.
11:07 - 11:08 His name is Zhao.
11:09 - 11:12 Middle-aged, big sideburns, bigger temper...
11:12 - 11:16 Sokka, I want you to tell everything you know to Hahn.
11:16 - 11:18 He's leading this mission.
11:18 - 11:20 Hahn, show Sokka your respect.
11:20 - 11:24 I expect nothing less from my future son-in-law.
11:27 - 11:28 Princess Yue's marrying you?
11:28 - 11:30 Yeah. What of it?
11:30 - 11:32 Nothing. Congratulations.
11:39 - 11:41 Stop those fireballs!
11:50 - 11:52 It's almost twilight, Admiral.
11:52 - 11:53 As your military consultant,
11:53 - 11:56 I must advise you to halt your attack.
11:56 - 11:59 The waterbenders draw their power from the moon,
11:59 - 12:01 and it is nearly full tonight.
12:02 - 12:05 You should wait and resume the attack at daybreak.
12:05 - 12:07 Oh, I am well aware of the moon problem.
12:07 - 12:10 And I'm working on a solution.
12:10 - 12:12 But for now, daybreak it is.
12:19 - 12:21 They've stopped firing.
12:21 - 12:22 Aang!
12:28 - 12:30 I can't do it.
12:30 - 12:31 I can't do it.
12:31 - 12:33 What happened?
12:33 - 12:35 I must have taken out a dozen fire navy ships,
12:35 - 12:38 but there's just too many of them.
12:38 - 12:40 I can't fight them all!
12:40 - 12:42 But you have to.
12:42 - 12:43 You're the Avatar.
12:43 - 12:45 I'm just one kid.
12:55 - 12:57 If you are fishing for an octopus, my nephew,
12:57 - 13:00 you need a tightly woven net,
13:00 - 13:04 or he will squeeze through the tiniest hole and escape.
13:04 - 13:06 I don't need your wisdom right now, Uncle.
13:06 - 13:09 I'm sorry, I just nag you because...
13:09 - 13:13 Well, ever since I lost my son...
13:13 - 13:15 Uncle, you don't have to say it.
13:16 - 13:18 I think of you as my own.
13:20 - 13:22 I know, Uncle.
13:22 - 13:23 We'll meet again.
13:25 - 13:26 After I have the Avatar.
13:29 - 13:32 Remember your breath of fire.
13:32 - 13:33 It could save your life out there.
13:33 - 13:34 I will.
13:34 - 13:36 And put your hood up.
13:36 - 13:38 Keep your ears warm.
13:38 - 13:39 I'll be fine!
13:48 - 13:49 Let me tell you, Sokka,
13:50 - 13:53 I've courted a lot of girls, but Yue is the finest.
13:53 - 13:55 And she comes with the most perks.
13:55 - 13:57 Perks?! What does that mean?
13:57 - 13:59 I mean, Yue's nice and everything,
14:00 - 14:02 but the points I'll gain with the chief aren't bad either.
14:02 - 14:05 Princess Yue is wasted on a self-absorbed weasel like you!
14:06 - 14:07 Whoa, hang on!
14:07 - 14:08 What do you care?
14:08 - 14:11 You're just a simple rube from the Southern Tribe.
14:11 - 14:14 What would you know of the political complexities of our life?
14:14 - 14:15 No offense.
14:19 - 14:22 You're just a jerk without a soul! No offense!
14:24 - 14:26 That's enough!
14:26 - 14:28 Sokka, you're off the mission.
14:29 - 14:31 All right, fall in, men!
14:31 - 14:33 Everybody listen to what I say,
14:33 - 14:36 and we'll take out this Admiral Cho in no time!
14:36 - 14:38 It's Admiral Zhao!
15:14 - 15:15 Where are they going?
15:17 - 15:19 They're coming up for air somewhere.
15:29 - 15:32 The legends say the moon was the first waterbender.
15:32 - 15:34 Our ancestors saw how it pushed and pulled the tides,
15:34 - 15:36 and learned how to do it themselves.
15:36 - 15:40 I've always noticed my waterbending is stronger at night.
15:40 - 15:43 Our strength comes from the spirit of the moon,
15:43 - 15:45 our life comes from the spirit of the ocean.
15:45 - 15:48 They work together to keep balance.
15:48 - 15:49 The spirits.
15:49 - 15:52 Maybe I can find them and get their help.
15:52 - 15:54 How can you do that?
15:54 - 15:55 The avatar is the bridge
15:55 - 15:57 between our world and the spirit world.
15:57 - 15:59 Aang can talk to them!
15:59 - 16:02 Maybe they'll give you the wisdom to win this battle.
16:02 - 16:03 Or maybe they'll unleash
16:04 - 16:06 a crazy-amazing spirit attack on the Fire Nation!
16:08 - 16:10 Or wisdom. That's good, too.
16:10 - 16:11 The only problem is,
16:12 - 16:14 the last time you got to the spirit world by accident.
16:14 - 16:16 How are you going to get there this time?
16:16 - 16:18 I have an idea. Follow me.
16:25 - 16:27 So, is this the way to the spirit world?
16:27 - 16:28 Ha ha ha. No.
16:28 - 16:31 You'll have to get there on your own. But I can take you
16:31 - 16:34 to the most spiritual place in the entire North Pole.
16:51 - 16:54 I never thought I'd miss grass this much!
16:54 - 16:57 It's so warm here! How is that possible?
16:57 - 17:00 It's the center of all spiritual energy in our land.
17:10 - 17:11 You're right, Yue.
17:11 - 17:13 I can feel...
17:13 - 17:14 Something.
17:14 - 17:15 It's so...
17:15 - 17:17 Tranquil.
17:35 - 17:36 Be quiet!
17:56 - 17:58 Is something wrong, Sokka?
17:58 - 17:59 Oh, no.
17:59 - 18:01 Hahn's out there on the top-secret mission,
18:01 - 18:03 while I'm here sharpening my boomerang.
18:03 - 18:04 Everything's fine.
18:04 - 18:06 Listen to me.
18:06 - 18:09 I took you off the mission for selfish reasons.
18:09 - 18:12 I have a special task in mind for you.
18:12 - 18:13 What, you want me to scrub the barracks?
18:14 - 18:17 I want you to guard my daughter, Princess Yue.
18:18 - 18:20 Oh. Sure.
18:20 - 18:22 That shouldn't be too hard.
19:15 - 19:17 Why is he sitting like that?
19:17 - 19:18 He's meditating.
19:18 - 19:20 Trying to cross over into the spirit world.
19:21 - 19:23 It takes all his concentration.
19:23 - 19:25 Is there any way we can help?
19:25 - 19:26 How about some quiet?!
19:27 - 19:30 Come on, guys, I can hear every word you're saying.
19:50 - 19:51 Is he ok?
19:51 - 19:53 He's crossing into the spirit world.
19:53 - 19:56 He'll be fine as long as we don't move his body.
19:56 - 19:58 That's his way back to the physical world.
19:58 - 19:59 Maybe we should get some help?
20:00 - 20:01 No. He's my friend.
20:01 - 20:03 I'm perfectly capable of protecting him.
20:04 - 20:07 Well, aren't you a big girl now?
20:07 - 20:08 No...
20:08 - 20:09 Yes.
20:09 - 20:12 Hand him over and I won't have to hurt you.
20:14 - 20:15 Hyah!
20:23 - 20:25 I see you've learned a new trick.
20:25 - 20:27 But I didn't come this far to lose to you.
20:47 - 20:49 You little peasant.
20:49 - 20:52 You've found a master, haven't you?
20:55 - 20:57 Hyah!
21:02 - 21:03 Hyah! Hyah...
21:08 - 21:10 Aah! Uh!
21:11 - 21:12 Hyah! Hyah...
21:26 - 21:28 It's daybreak at last.
21:28 - 21:30 Let's write history.
21:52 - 21:56 You rise with the moon, I rise with the sun.
22:07 - 22:11 The Water Tribe can try to resist the inevitable,
22:12 - 22:14 but their city will fall today.
22:22 - 22:24 Aang?!
22:25 - 22:27 What happened?! Where's Zuko?!
22:27 - 22:29 He took Aang.
22:29 - 22:31 He took him right out from under me.
22:32 - 22:33 Where did they go?
