Avatar: The Last Airbender Star Offers to Bring Azula to Life for a Fan

Grey DeLisle, voice actor for Avatar: The Last Airbender, shared a unique fan experience that took place during a flight.

On Twitter, DeLisle posted an image of the person seated in front of her on a flight watching ATLA. As seen in the picture, the voice actor sneakily snapped a photo of a scene featuring her character Azula, the crown princess of the Fire Nation. “Should I tell him?,” DeLisle wrote. Mob Psycho 100’s Chris Niosi encouraged her to do Azula’s iconically creepy voice behind the person, and other notable voice actors hoped DeLisle said something. However, it’s unclear whether DeLisle ended up interacting with the fan.

Since the late 1990s, DeLisle, sometimes credited as Grey Griffin, has remained active in the voice-acting industry. Other than voicing Zuko’s maniacal younger sister, she voiced Daphne Blake in various Scooby-Doo! media and Frankie Foster in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, among many other voice-acting credits in video games, film and animated series. As for future projects, DeLisle will reprise her role as Arcee in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.

In December 2021, Netflix cast several significant characters in the streaming service’s live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, including Elizabeth Yu as Princess Azula and Maria Zhang as Suki, a Kyoshi warrior and Sokka’s love interest. Additionally, Netflix recruited Raya and the Last Dragon’s Thalia Tran to play Mai and Momona Tamada for Ty Lee. The casting announcement officially completes Azula’s trio with the Fire Nation’s fiercest female fighters. Other announced cast members include Casey Camp-Horinek as Katara and Sokka’s Gran-Gran and Yvonne Chapman as Avatar Kyoshi.

The Last Airbender’s Upcoming Projects
In addition to Netflix’s live-action project, Avatar Studios plan to work on an animated film and TV series on Paramount+ every year starting in 2025. The first installment of the studio’s jam-packed release schedule follows the adult version of Aang and Team Avatar. The following animated series focuses on the earth Avatar following the events of Aang and Korra. Reportedly, the production slate covers upcoming media from 2025 to 2027, but the franchise may continue depending on its success.

While the upcoming Last Airbender projects will feature many new faces, Dante Basco, the voice of Zuko, will return for the adult Gaang series. Previously, Basco played Zuko throughout the original series’ three seasons and voiced the Firelord’s grandson, Iroh II, in The Legend of Zorra. The future was also recently set at 2022’s San Diego Comic-Con, where the Legend of Korra star Janet Varney officially announced the untitled film. The upcoming project will reportedly combine 2D and 3D animation, with Flying Bark Productions overseeing the responsibility.
