I regularly rewatch Avatar and Korra. One of the most important TV shows of my life.
Honestly, the fact that they don’t rush things is a good sign. It really is. I’m scared as hell, because the whole Avatar universe means so much to me, but I’m also hopeful, because those guys are really smart and thoughful.July 9, 2020 at 8:23 pm #1203579264
In a recent interview with the Jiu-Jitsu Times, Sifu Kisu, who was the martial arts consultant on the original animated series, revealed that he hopes to be involved with the live action Netflix series.

I really don’t see much point to this. The original’s a classic, and presenting this in live action will in no way make it better.
But at least it can never be as bad as the movie.July 9, 2020 at 10:37 pm #1203579387
Team Shyamalan! Guy gets a bad rap.July 10, 2020 at 8:09 am #1203579860
Gotta say this is the first time I’ve ever seen a person say they liked that movie. Even on the internet I’ve never seen it.
Piss poor adaptation of course, but once you get over the need to compare media to originals, this is a pretty breathtaking piece. Best use of CGI perhaps ever (hyperbole, but it’s gorgeous!), and a really interesting use of performance-sans-emotion contrasted with the spaces in the frame. I dug it!July 11, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203581272
Been rewatching the original series on Netflix and I was wondering, does anyone here know what episodes of Avatar were submitted for Outstanding Animated Program at the Primetime Emmys? I know that City of Walls and Secrets was nominated, but what other episodes were submitted for Emmy consideration over the show’s three-season run? I tried looking up the PDFs, but couldn’t find them anywhere, even using the Wayback Machine.August 12, 2020 at 9:14 am #1203641627
I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. The good news is that the live action Netflix series is still in the works. The bad news is that the original creators, Michael Dante DiMartino & Bryan Konietzko, have both departed due to creative differences.
Though a spokesperson from Netflix just told Mashable: “We have complete respect and admiration for Michael and Bryan and the story that they created in the Avatar animated series. Although they have chosen to depart the live action project, we are confident in the creative team and their adaptation.”August 12, 2020 at 9:32 am #1203641667
Oh no :(((((((((((August 12, 2020 at 4:20 pm #1203642576
Honestly, this should be scrapped, We don’t need a remake. The series was close to perfection and, without the creators at the helm, I have little to no confidence that this will be better than the horrible Shamaylan movie.August 15, 2020 at 5:26 am #1203646669
I never loved the idea of doing a shot for shot remake of a show that was already perfect, but I was intrigued. I’m a lot little less enthusiastic now. I was holding on hope that Aaron Ehaz would come back too, never thought they would walk.
I’m curious what was the breaking point between the creators and Netflix.
Netflix is notorious for spending so much money and green lighting almost everything
At least we now have both ATLA and Korra on Netflix now. I’m gonna enjoy that.August 15, 2020 at 6:17 am #1203646679

Agreed. What’s there to improve on? Everybody loves the original, and doing it in live action isn’t going to add anything. You’d think they wouldn’t try doing a live action Airbender adaptation after the last one was such an infamous flop.August 15, 2020 at 8:07 am #1203646814
Given how well the original animated series has been doing on Netflix (as well as Legend of Korra so far), I can’t imagine the streaming platform wanting to scrap production on the live action series at this point. I actually think that if done well, a live action interpretation of Avatar: The Last Airbender could be really cool.Not now
