Avatar: The Last Airbender Animated Movie Will Bring The Gaang Back Together
By HOAI-TRAN BUI
When the creative team splintered off from Netflix’s live adaptation of the beloved animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” they created Avatar Studios. This Nickelodeon production studio is entirely dedicated to expanding the Avatar world and announced its goal to explore that universe with three theatrically released feature films.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Avatar studios panel revealed the first of its feature-length videos would focus on “The Last Airbender” characters as young adults, a period that has not yet been explored. Nickelodeon confirmed the news on Twitter with a recorded message from “Legend of Korra” actress Janet Varney (Korra), who expressed her excitement for the growing universe.
The panel also reported that these untitled films would be separate stories, not a trilogy, and will take place after the original series’ conclusion. Aang and his allies' unseen years have been the subject of tie-in novels and comics that resolve lingering story threads, but it’s unclear if the studio plans on adapting these for their films or creating new stories entirely.
