Yip yip! Avatar: The Last Airbender has been available on Netflix for some weeks now, and the show has been an excellent addition to the site's catalog. The hit animated series has been one of the most-watched shows on the platform since it launched earlier this month. Now, audiences both new and old are tuning into the Nickelodeon series as they follow Aang on his journey to stop the Fire Nation's looming victory. And thanks to Netflix, the show has gotten a major update that fans will be more than happy to check out!

Netflix announced the big news the other day on Twitter. It was there the streaming giant confirmed it has acquired streaming rights to the HD version of Avatar, so fans will be able to leave the standard version behind for something a bit sleeker. And if you have already binged the show on Netflix, well - it never hurts to revisit Aang and the gang.

"Avatar: The Last Airbender is now available in HD so if you want to see every glorious fiber of Appa's fur, now is the time. And if you haven't watched Avatar yet what are you doing why are you like this," Netflix shared with fans in a tweet.

For fans of Avatar, this HD version of the show is a definite treat. Old-school fans of the Nickelodeon classic may have never seen this updated take on the show. And for everyone who recently watched it in standard definition, they know how badly their TVs wished they were streaming the content in high definition. Now, that is possible, and it comes just in time for anyone wanting a new binge session to ring in July.

Of course, there are other things in the works for Avatar at Netflix, but they are not centered around the cartoon. The site confirmed it was backing the series' live-action adaptation some time ago. So far, no word has been given on casting for the ambitious project, but other adaptations have made progress with Netflix. Most recently, rumors began circulating that the company has started casting for its One Piece adaptation as filming is scheduled to being in August barring any COVID-19 delays.
