Another montage.

Weird how it works out, but this accomplishes something very different. The goal of this is to show that Zuko is in hot pursuit of Aang (a fact not well preserved in the original film), and also to set up a few plot points, such as how Zhao manages to stay with Zuko in his pursuit of the Avatar.

I also like the new scene of the near-miss with Zuko, which heightens tension, and, in my opinion, proves the competence of the group (with talks of night-watches or whether fatigue will eat at them)

The Legend of Aang: Hot Pursuit

EXT. VILLAGE – DAY

A steward is seen sweeping the village streets, until something catches his attention and freezes in place.

ZUKO and a small caravan enter the village. ZUKO approaches the steward and begins to talk to him, albeit inaudibly. Eventually, he points off in one direction leading out of the village, ZUKO soon bolting off in that direction.

EXT. FOREST – DAY

ZUKO races through the forest, as we see what he does; a campfire, only recently extinguished. He dips his finger in it, also examining the ash.

ZUKO

It’s fresh.

ZUKO senses JEE behind him, standing to face him.

ZUKO

They’ve been here. Send word to the others.

JEE

Yes, sir.

JEE watches as ZUKO walks in a different direction.

FADE TO:

INT. ZHAO’S SHIP – WAR ROOM – DAY

JEE stands in the same position, as ZHAO’s hand comes into frame.

ZHAO marks another spot on the map, as the pins begin to show a definite pattern.

ZHAO stares at it with intrigue.

ZHAO

He’s heading North.

(to Jee)

Did he use any bending forms besides air?

JEE

No.

ZHAO breaks a malicious smile.

The camera zooms in to the NORTHERN WATER TRIBE.

FADE TO:

EXT. FOREST – DUSK

AANG is taking a walk with KATARA near a small campsite, the sunlight barely enough to provide an ambient light.

The two turn their heads to the distance sound of a whinny.
AANG runs to the campground and stomps out the fire.

SOKKA

What the-?

AANG

We’ve got to hide.

SOKKA turns his heads to galloping sounds. He begins to grab many telltale supplies and carry them with him

They run quickly past APPA, who is fast asleep, not snoring.

ZUKO rides into view, mounted on a bipedal creature, searching through the wooded area.

The group is huddled together under a ravine, AANG gripping KATARA’s hand tightly.

ZUKO soon rides over a ravine, and the camera reveals that it is over the team’s chosen hiding place (though they are well kept in the shadows.

ZUKO eyes around him, soon casting a flame to illuminate the surrounding area.

KATARA flinches and grips AANG’s hand even tighter.

ZUKO shows signs of almost getting ready to dismount, but, at the last second, places his fingers in his mouth and whistles to his men.

All three sigh in relief as ZUKO rides off into the night.

They wait until they are assured safety and crawl out, perching themselves on the ravine’s edge. They still talked in hushed voices, however.

AANG

Sorry about dinner.

SOKKA

Don’t worry about it.

AANG

How far are we?

KATARA

A couple days, I think.

AANG

Good.

KATARA chuckles a bit.

KATARA

I’ll have first watch tonight.

SOKKA

You took it last night.

KATARA

I’ll do it again.

SOKKA

Don’t you get tired?

KATARA

Nah…

{C} SOKKA raises his eyebrow and begins to crawl out of the ravine.
