Hey. lets talk about the similarities and differences of both of these great fantasy stories.  Let's talk about how Avatar's creators were influenced by The Lord of The Rings, and J R.R Tolkien, the worldbulidng, the morals, themes, religious conceptions, cultures, the films, the books, the ring, and the characters of Avatar and Lord of the Rings.

Feel free to say who's your favorite character in Lord of the rings and how there alike, or not with some of the characters of Avatar the Last airbender, for example Boromir is like Jet because they are redeemed in death.

Has anyone ever notice that Mordor and the Fire Nation have many things in common?

It's important to acknowledge that ATLA in some way owes its existence to Lord of the Rings.  Mike and Bryan talk in the art book about how when they were developing ATLA, Lord of the Rings, along with Harry Potter, were the hot franchises at the time.  Nickelodeon was looking for a show that would tap into the market that was gobbling up those franchisess. And it's impossible to deny that the attention to detail in the mythos of the Lord of the Rings was an influence on how the Avatar world was developed.

Where would you say ATLA strongly takes from Lord of the Rings and if you can could you link me or post the qoutes?
