Avatar The Last Airbender was one of the most popular animated series on TV. The series inspired the creation of a movie bearing the same name and as well as a sequel show dubbed, Legend of Korra. Netflix has now brought the original series to their streaming service. So, who are the Avatar The Last Airbender Netflix cast and their roles?
Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of the most popular cartoons largely in the mid-2000s. However, the show came to a dead end after the entire project got terrible reviews from Paramount and Nickelodeon. Luckily, Netflix is on a mission to bring back Avatar: The Last Airbender to live-action once more.
Avatar: The Last Airbender plot
Avatar the Last Airbender live-action Netflix series is set to follow the same basic storyline as it was in the animated predecessor. Only a few changes are expected to take place. For instance, one of the significant changes is that Katara is now the older sibling.
The series is set in a fictional world that borrows the Eastern and Southern Asia cultures. The story is centred on the journey of a boy named Aang, the Avatar. He is the only person with extraordinary powers of bending four elements, water, earth, fire and air.
The Fire Nation attacks and takes control of the other three nations, water, earth and air. Together with his friends Katara, Sokka, and Toph, Aang joined hands in defeating the Fire Nation once and for all. Therefore, questions such as how did Sokka die and who is playing Aang on Netflix will only find answers after the series is out.
How popular is Avatar The Last Airbender on Netflix? It was the highest-rated animated TV series in its demographic during its premiere. On average, more than 3.1 million people watched every new episode upon release.
When is the release date for Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix 2021?
After three years of announcing the remake of Avatar: The Last Airbender, the release date is yet to be announced. The production of the series was set to take place at the beginning of 2019, but it is still in the stages of pre-production.
Through an Instagram post in May 2019, Bryan Konietzko explained to the show's fans that his team was in the production phase even though things were moving at a slow pace.
In addition, the adaptation ran into some trouble in 2020 when Avatar creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko stepped away from the project. They cited creative differences with Netflix as their reasons for stepping away.
I realized I couldn’t control the creative direction of the series, but I could control how I responded. Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar has the potential to be good... but what I can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.
Eventually, the show-running role was taken over by Albert Kim who is known for the executive production of Nikita and Sleepy Hollow.
Avatar The Last Airbender Netflix cast
Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix casting calls have been finally. Initially, hey were supposed to take place in 2019, but it was faced with some unprecedented delays. However, the show's creators made it clear that they were committed to casting actors and actresses who were both culturally and ethically appropriate.
We can’t wait to realize Aang’s world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build upon everyone’s great work on the original animated series and go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building. Netflix is wholly dedicated to manifesting our vision for this retelling, and we’re incredibly grateful to be partnering with them.
