This year, Avatar: The Last Airbender will begin filming its live-action series for Netflix. Despite the fact that Avatar: The Last Airbender is slated to grow with a new world of animated projects through Avatar Studios, a live-action version of the series is still in the works with Netflix. While the showrunners for the new series were supposed to be original series creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the last we heard about it was their public withdrawal from the production.
The original creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko were scheduled to lead the fresh take on their beloved storyline when Netflix initially announced plans for the Avatar: The Last Airbender reboot. After a few years of development, DiMartino and Konietzko exited Netflix’s live-action series in late 2020. They claimed creative disagreements as to the reason, but Netflix assured that the show will continue. Albert Kim is said to have taken over as showrunner at the beginning of 2021. Since then, though, there has been no official word about Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Since DiMartino and Konietzko left, there has been a lot of uncertainty among Avatar: The Last Airbender fans regarding Netflix’s plans for the live-action series. Their explanations for why they left didn’t help, and neither did rumors that Katara would be aged up, which sparked conjecture that this would assist her and Zuko develop a romance. Katara and Zuko had a romantic relationship in the original animated series, although she eventually chose Aang.
As per the source of CBR If Avatar: The Last Airbender is set to launch on Netflix by the end of 2021, expect lots more updates in the months ahead. Before the commencement of production, the young actors for Aang, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, and others should be announced. Avatar: The Last Airbender may potentially be ready for a Netflix release in late 2022 if this happens. Alongside Nickelodeon creating Avatar Studios with DiMartino and Konietzko to create additional material in the world, it will be interesting to see whether Netflix’s live-action series can debut before the next Avatar: The Last Airbender film.
