I just noticed all the Movie titles by M.night in the title of this blog post.....lol
The Last Airbender while critically panned has Domestically grossed 130.5 million dollars, with a 150 million shooting budget that seems to fall short, but overseas it has made 94.9 million(225.4 million Total) SO FAR, it still hasn't been fully released. It still has to be released Poland, Finland, Austrilia, Norway, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and finally, Greece(which will be Oct 28). So, infact it actually might make it's 130 MILLION MARKETING BUDGET by itself and MORE.
So with that, the fact M.Night planned a trilogy, and the fact HE SIGNED FOR A TRILOGY, expect another movie.
Here's some Quote from M. Night himself"I do [have things mapped out]. The third is more ambiguous, but the
second one, I’ve written a draft that I’m really happy with and is
darker and richer, and it has a wonderful antagonist in it in Azula,
who’s kind of like our only real, pure antagonist in the series, so I’m
excited about that."

And yes expect the Kyoshi Warriors which he did record footage of but cut it:
Here's a picture of them from footage he cut.
he originally intended them to play a BIGGER ROLE then the actual first season to be along side the main characters up untl they left the Earth Nation for the Water Tribe.“We shot [an amazing scene with the Kyoshi Warriors], and we spent an unbelievable amount of time choreographing them. And they just distracted from the movie, because the movie wasn’t about them. I
probably won’t show the Kyoshi Warriors [on the DVD] because I want to
save them for the second movie, because I’m going to have to introduce
them all over again.”
