Avatar: The Last Airbender is considered by many to be one of the greatest animated series of all time and with good reason. The stories of both Aang and Korra were able to tell complex stories with amazing characters, and despite the fact that it has been years since either series was playing new episodes on Nickelodeon, fans refuse to let the universe of bending die. With Netflix set to air a live-action adaptation in the future, it seems that production of the first season has wrapped.
Currently, the streaming service has been tight-lipped as to when this live-action adaptation will be arriving on Netflix, though with production wrapping, we would imagine that it will hit early next year, if not later in 2022. Avatar The Last Airbender isn't the only animated adaptation that is set to hit the platform in the future, with Netflix also working on the likes of One Piece and Yu Yu Hakusho. While the previous live-action anime adaptation on Netflix, Cowboy Bebop, failed to secure additional seasons following its first, fans are wondering if the upcoming live-action series following Aang and his friends will be able to buck the trend.
Gordon Cormier, the young actor who will be playing Aang in Netflix's live-action adaptation, celebrated the production wrapping alongside the other main actors of the series, sharing a photo with the likes of Kiawentiio, Dallas Liu, and Ian Ousley:
Avatar The Last Airbender's upcoming animated projects from Avatar Studios have yet to reveal what stories they'll be diving into to further explore the universe that introduced us to the Fire Nation, Earth Kingdom, Water Tribe, and Air Nomads. Of course, as fans well know, there are plenty of avenues for Paramount to explore when it comes to the stories of Aang, Korra, and beyond, though rumors have begun swirling that the projects could revolve around the likes of Kyoshi, Zuko, and Korra to name a few. Ultimately, fans of the franchise will just have to wait and see when it comes to how the future of the franchise will progress.
