Eight Years Have Passed and Netflix Discovered the New Avatar

September 18, 2018

Netflix, partnering with Nickelodeon, has teamed up with Avatar: The Last Airbender co-creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko to bring a live action series based upon the original series to their streaming service! Michael and Bryan will serve as executive producers and showrunners, with production scheduled to being in 2019.

“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender,’” said Konietzko  and DiMartino. “We can’t wait to realize Aang’s world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build upon everyone’s great work on the original animated series and go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building. Netflix is wholly dedicated to manifesting our vision for this retelling, and we’re incredibly grateful to be partnering with them.”
