Avatar The Last Airbender has plenty of characters that could bend the elements around them, but the world also had many characters that had to rely on their skills to survive as they did not have similar abilities. Such was the case with June, the bounty hunter that threw her lot behind Prince Zuko early on in the series for the right price, with one cosplayer bringing the skilled traveler to life with some spot-on cosplay.
Avatar The Last Airbender has seen some major announcements land in 2022, with the first animated movie by Avatar Studios receiving a release date in 2025. Prior to this comeback for Aang and his friends, Netflix is working on a live-action adaptation that has seemingly wrapped production, though no official footage has been revealed and a release date remains anyone’s guess at this point. June herself will be making an appearance, played by actor Arden Cho, so it should be interesting to see the role she will play in this revision and whether she’ll be riding atop her strange mole-like creature.
Instagram Cosplayer Kosthetic brought back the big bounty hunter that was introduced in Avatar The Last Airbender, looking to make cash from the Fire Nation and routinely taking on work from Zuko in both attempting to capture Aang while also searching for his mother toward the tail-end of the series:
Avatar and Korra’s stories would continue in comic book form, with their futures being documented in a number of different ways. June herself never made an appearance in the Legend of Korra. Perhaps, when the next animated movie arrives in theaters, June will return to the bending world and might just lend Zuko a hand in finding the whereabouts of his mother.
Despite having aired over a decade ago, the bending universe remains a fan-favorite, so bringing it back via a Netflix live-action adaptation and upcoming animated films seems like an easy decision.
What do you think ultimately happened to June following the end of the original Avatar The Last Airbender series? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of bending.
