Mind. Blown. Netflix Avatar: The Last Airbender LIVE ACTION SERIES coming soon from co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko
Yes. You read that correctly.
A live-action adaptation of ATLA is coming to Netflix, executive produced and showrun by ATLA and TLOK co-creators and showrunners Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, collectively known to the fans as Bryke.
Here’s what Bryke had to say:
“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.”
Obviously we’ll be covering this in full. Expect a LOT of news, this could be one of Netflix’s biggest productions, on the scale of House of Cards, Stranger Things, and The Crown… this could be their competitor to HBO’s Game of Thrones and its upcoming spinoffs, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings prequel series, and Disney’s live action Star Wars series… this could be really, really BIG…
