Nickelodeon describes the plot as:
Ever since Katara and Sokka discovered Aang, they’ve been on an epic journey with a crucial mission: train him to master all the disciplines of the Avatar. Aang must learn the sacred art of bending – the ability to manipulate the elements. Inexperienced but potentially all-powerful, Aang’s training takes him (and Katara and Sokka) on fascinating travels across the four nations – the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Throughout their time together, they encounter helpful friends (like Avatar Roku, Aang’s previous incarnation) and a growing list of enemies (namely, Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation). They must learn who they can and cannot trust as Aang attempts to reach his full potential and bring peace to the world.
