I don't see why not. For the next movie, Toph may be the next character to undergo a similar character development, i.e. overcoming her sense of insecurity with her blindess or partial blindness. For the third movie, it would be Zuko's turn, with him accepting his destiny to help Aang and restore honor to the Fire Nation. I am also eyeing for Sokka's character development, coming to terms with his tragic loss Princess Yue, and finally confessing his feelings to Suki.

We never really get to see who Aang really is, so seeing him struggle with the loss of his people doesn't have the impact that it should.
You know, Aang was emotionally conflicted for the most of Sozin's Comet "movie event" storyline. They can get away with that because the fans already know how Aang really was from past episodes, i.e. "this is not like him so whatever that is troubling him is really serious." It may have helped if M.Night included the scene where Katara and Sokka were talking to Aang on the way to the Southern Air Temple, instead of replacing it with Katara's narration summarizing that Aang did not remember how he was frozen in the ice sphere.
M.Night could also add a few more flashbacks or longer flashbacks when he was happy throughout the movie, but he probably figured, "OK, I already showed Aang smiled enough times, I need to use the remaining alloted time for other scenes..."
