AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER Live-Action Series From Original Creators In The Works At Netflix

M. Night Shyamalan's movie is widely considered to be one of the worst adaptations in history, but popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender will get another shot at live-action glory on Netflix.

Good news for the legions of Avatar: The Last Airbender fans, as the mega-popular animated fantasy series is getting a live-action adaptation on Netflix.

Glass director M. Night Shyamalan infamously attempted a live-action feature back in 2010 which was universally panned by fans and critics, but with the beloved Nickelodeon show's original creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko on board to oversee this "re-imagining," it has a much better chance of success. At least, we hope so!

Check out a joint statement from DiMartino and Konietzko below.


“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. 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.”

No premiere date for Avatar: The Last Airbender just yet, but production is expected to commence at some point next year.
