Avatar The Last Airbender's Live-Action Series Gets Netflix Update

Avatar The Last Airbender is set to make a splash on Netflix, with the streaming service set to release a new live-action adaptation that will revisit the story of Aang, Sokka, Katara, and the other benders that arrived thanks to the Nickelodeon animated series. With Avatar Studios working on new animated projects that should begin in 2025, footage has yet to arrive for this upcoming television series, though Netflix might be hinting that things are getting ready to change on that front.   

As it stands, no footage has been released for the live-action adaptation, leaving many to wonder when a new trailer will arrive. This update might certainly be the first time that we see the cast in action, with the actors portraying the benders including Gordon Cormier as Aang, Kiawentiio as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, and Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko. Based on the casting announcements, various characters that didn't appear in the original first season of the animated series, such as Azula, will be making an appearance, showing that Netflix's live-action adaptation will differ from the source material.

Avatar Update

Netflix Geeked shared a new update that many Avatar fans believe might mean that a new trailer is nigh, as the live-action adaptation has yet to release any footage to the world:

In a recent interview with Variety, the head of Netflix's scripted series, Peter Friedlander, had this to say about the big production that is Avatar The Last Airbender and the other projects that the streaming service has in the works: 

"These shows are very big productions and it takes a ton of time, both on the production side and in post, so you have to respect the long journey for some of these shows to deliver what hasn't been done on television before. And that's what we have for a lot of these types of shows when we're working on them, whether it's "Avatar" or "One Piece" or "Three-Body Problem," these are big, visual spectacles that you have to honor the process and respect that."
