Following the success of The Dragon Prince, Netflix has decided to give Avatar: The Last Airbender a second lease of life with a live-action reboot.
Avatar Co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino have said in a press release that the live-action series is a "once-in-a-lifetime chance to build upon everyone's great work on the original animated series". They also noted that the casting will be "a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast":
“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. We can’t wait to realise 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.”
A reimagined, live-action “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series is coming to Netflix!
