Netflix's Avatar: The Last Airbender Has Found Its King Bumi

It is no secret that Avatar: The Last Airbender is living a good life right now. Not only is the series looking to expand its animated projects, but Netflix is working on a live-action adaptation of the IP. So far, fans are loving the cast of the TV series, and a new report suggests Avatar has already found its King Bumi IRL. 

The update comes from Avatar News and Knight Edge Media as you can see below. The new report says Netflix has cast King Bumi, and the actor who will oversee the Earth Kingdom ruler is Utkarsh Ambudkar. At this time, no official word has been given on this casting by Netflix or the actor's team. So until such word goes live, this update is little more than a report though Avatar News has a solid track record with its live-action reveals.

For those unfamiliar with Ambudkar, the actor is no stranger to television and film. The actor has starred in everything from Free Guy to The Midy Project and Pitch Perfect. Most recently, Ambudkar worked on two television series, The Dropout and Ghosts.

If this report is spot on, then this actor joins a slew of talented stars who have officially joined Netflix's live-action adaptation. Gordon Cormier is slated to play Aang while Ian Ousley oversees Sokka. Kiawentiio has been cast as Katara, and when it comes to the Fire Nation royals, everyone from Dallas James Liu to Daniel Dae Kim and Elizabeth You will oversee the family. At this time, Netflix has yet to release any official images or footage from Avatar, but fans hope they will get an update before the year ends.
