Momona Tamada was just cast in Avatar: The Last Airbender, and it's the best news ever

Long ago, four nations lived together in harmony, but everything changed when the newest member of the Fire Nation was announced.

Breaking news: Momona Tamada (of The Baby-Sitters Club fame, ofc) was just cast as Ty Lee, the bubbly, pink-loving acrobat and best friend of Fire Princess Azula (played by Elizabeth Yu). She will def be able to pull off Ty Lee's sunny attitude *and* super cute blush look. Momona is one of the newest additions to the cast, which is already jam packed with some of our fave stars.

And, ofc, the iconic Fire Nation trio wouldn't be complete without Mai, who will be played by Thalia Tran (Young Lara in To All The Boys). We *literally* can't wait for these besties to make their debut on Netflix. 


The live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series has been in the works since 2018 and just started filming this year. The release date has yet to be announced, but we're crossing our fingers it's soon. Until then, we'll be binge watching the original animated series (and the newest season of BSC, obvi).
