In recent days, Netflix has made a number of announcements when it comes to bringing anime series old and new to their streaming service, and today was no exception, with Avatar The Last Airbender coming to the channel and a star from the X-Men movies, Lana Condor, expressing her love of the series! Fans across the world expressed their admiration of what is considered to be one of the greatest animated stories of all time, with Aang and his friends facing down the Fire Nation and the actress who brought Jubilee to life in X-Men: Apocalypse clearly wanted to share as well!
Lana Condor wasn't just a star of one of the most recent X-Men films, bringing to life the "mall baby" of the mutant team in Jubilee, but also being a part of movies like Alita: Battle Angel in this futuristic landscape. With a number of television credits to her name that were also a part of Netflix's library of movies and television shows, it's clear that Lana has a substantial resume in the world of entertainment. With all three seasons of Avatar arriving on Netflix, it's clear that now is the time to celebrate the fifteen year old animated series.
Lana Condor shared her love of Avatar: The Last Airbender on her Official Twitter Account, following Netflix's announcement that the anime series which originally debuted on Nickelodeon would be landing on the streaming service on May 15th:0comments
2020 marks the fifteenth anniversary of Avatar, which warranted both a sequel series in The Legend of Korra and a live action adaptation from M. Night Shyamalan. Netflix announced last year that there would be another live action adaptation in the works, with the original creative minds behind the series bringing this new series to life. Clearly, the streaming service is trying to get the series once again in audiences' minds with the three seasons being offered to subscribers!
