Avatar: The Last Airbender's new live-action adaptation has entered its third week of production with Netflix and has celebrated the occasion with a new photo! First announced to be in the works back in 2018, Netflix had officially started moving forward with their new live-action take on the classic Nickelodeon animated series in full earlier this year. After announcing a few key members of the cast over the course of the last couple of months, the series had announced it was officially beginning principal photography earlier this month in a new custom studio in collaboration with Pixomondo Virtual Production, an Academy Award and Emmy winning visual effects studio.
The various members of the cast have been openly celebrating the start of production on social media, and while they each have been coy about what to expect from this new series, the Executive Producer and showrunner behind teased fans some more. Celebrating being on set for the third week of production, Albert Kim shared a juicy photo tease with fans on Twitter teasing that "lots of big scenes" and new characters are on deck for this particular week of shooting. Check out Kim's original Tweet below:

Netflix currently does not have a release window or date set for the new Avatar: The Last Airbender series just yet, but they describe it as such:
