T here is a scene in Avatar: The Last Airbender that summons the ethereal enchantment and anguish of a Studio Ghibli movie every time you watch it. Iroh, the former crown prince of the imperial Fire nation voiced by the late Japanese American actor Mako , now a diminished, greying old man, sits by the graveside of his son. While I was watching it recently, my eyes cut to my younger brother sitting beside me, a year-old man standing almost 6ft tall. That scene has captivated millions around the world since the animated series was released 15 years ago by Nickelodeon — and it has had a revival since May, when it arrived on Netflix. The show was created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko and follows the adventures of the effervescent and indefatigable Aang, the year-old Avatar and last air-bender. Resurrected after years frozen in ice, he finds that his people have been the victim of genocide by the Fire nation.
