Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles My name is Wan, and I will show you how I became the first avatar. Nobody steals from the Chou Brothers! Really? Because I just did. Hey, fellas, you're just in time for lunch! Oh! Oh. [grunting] I told you no one steals from us. [laughing] [screaming] [grunting] You just got to accept the world is the way it is. Some people have power. Some people don't. - And you don't? - Not yet anyway. Do you have what it takes to battle the spirits? Then join the hunt? Count me in. We are venturing into the spirit wilds to bring back food for our people. Please grant us the power of fire. The power is yours to keep until your return. May the element of fire protect you against the spirits. [grunting] uh, guys, I think I want to go home. I knew you were nothing but a sniveling coward. Go give you a fire back to the lion turtle. And don't ever show your face around me again. You know it's forbidden to bring the power of the element into the city. Please go back to the lion turtle and return the fire. Chaiya, it's time to stop being so afraid of the Chou's. And show them we have the power to change things. Hand over all the food you're hoarding and we won't give you any trouble. [laughing] You're not getting past us. You're powerless. Powerless, huh? [grunting] Follow me! Grab as much food as you can! [grunting] [grunting] Have mercy. Wan? [grunting] Wan, you are hereby banished! Great Lion Turtle, I am sorry for stealing the fire from you and I accept my punishment. But please, I need to be able to protect myself in the wilds. I will allow you to keep the power of the element. [grunting] [growling] [howling] [growling] It's okay! I'm gonna get you out of there. Finally! We caught something. Get it down! Back off! Wan? What are you doing here? - I'm saving this animal. - That animal's our dinner. Now get out of the way! No! [grunting] I really hate humans. No, no. Ahh!!! Oh! [screaming] Thanks. So what did you do that hunter? Spirits are able take over a human body for a short time. If I stayed in there any longer I would've killed him. Which I did consider. I saw you save the cat deer from those hunters. - Told you I wasn't like the others. - Guess I underestimated you, human. I think I've had enough of humans for a while. I've decided to stay here and learn the ways of the spirits. [growling] You sure you want to leave? It's time I see the rest of the world and find the other Lion Turtle cities. [growling] Stop or you'll destroy everything! This doesn't concern you, Human! Please, save me! She has tormented me for 10,000 years! Ten thousand years? [screaming] Thank you, Human. You have performed a great service for the spirits. Do you realize what you've done? Yeah, I helped a spirit who is being bullied by you! You are gravely mistaken. My name is Rava. That spirit you freed is Vaatu. He is the force of darkness and chaos. I am the force of light and peace. By freeing Vaatu, I let chaos into the world? Precisely. The human and spirit realms are headed toward annihilation. And it's all your fault. - Let me help you. - I don't want your help. Don't interfere with me again, Human! Let's get moving. Do you see that Mula? People. And they have some kind of wind power. More humans. Wait! I'm friendly! [grunting] [sighing] Huh? I have got to get over there! Wish me luck. Ah! Oh. Ah. Where did you come from, stranger? Another Lion Turtle city, far away. We would love to hear your travels. Ahh. [screaming] Vaatu. Be gone! When harmonic convergence comes, I will destroy you forever. Now that Vaatu is free, he is turning other spirits dark. The more spirits he turns, the stronger he becomes. I'm sorry for endangering your village, but I promised to set things right. Great Lion Turtle! I ask that you grant me the power of air so that I could defeat Vaatu before it's too late. No human has ever held two elements at the same time. I'm not like other humans. I can learn to do it. Raava must hold power for you until you master it. I will help you to master the power of air. And in return, I will help you restore balance to the world. What's this harmonic thing Vaatu was talking about? Harmonic convergence. That is when Vaatu and I must battle for the fate of the world. Then we better start training. I'm ready to try air. The only way for me to give you the other element is to pass through your body and combine our energies. I'm ready. It feels completely different. If you and Vaatu have the same fight every 10,000 years, why hasn't one of you destroyed the other? He cannot destroy light anymore than I can destroy darkness. Even if I defeat Vaatu in this encounter, darkness will grow inside me until he emerges again. The same will hold true if Vaatu defeats me. That doesn't sound so bad. Even if Vaatu wins, you'll come back. Vaatu will destroy the world as you know it. Darkness will cover the earth for ten thousand years. If I'm gonna help you battle Vaatu, then I should visit more Lion Turtles. Why is there so much conflict between humans and spirits in the first place? Over time, more and more spirits have drifted into this world. Humans have been forced apart, settling on the lion turtles who protect them and losing touch with each other. A spirit! Easy there, fellas. We're friendly. - Wan? - Jiya! What are you doing out here? Once we heard that you survived out in the wilds, we decided to try it too. So, why were you protecting this spirit? This is Raava. She's not like the dark spirits you've probably run into. Dark spirits? What's the difference? We throw fire at any spirit we see around here. - Just like they attack any man. - The spirits are coming back! Let's wipe 'em out this time! Get out of the forest, Humans! Wait! We can resolve this peacefully. [laughing] We are protectors of the forest. We won't let you burn it down. [grunting] Wipe them out! Stop! Please! Raava! We need to combine our energies! Maybe then we'll have enough power to stop this! Enough! You need to stop fighting now! Before you destroy each other!
