The team behind The Last Airbender has announced that they are returning to continue the story in an upcoming sequel series. This time around, original creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino will be steering the course for what’s happening on screen.
With the Avatar universe branching into animated films and series, many speculate that it would be a huge success. The studio hasn’t announced anything yet so fans will just have to wait to see what they come up with.
However, the production of three new Avatar: The Last Airbender animations has been recently announced by Paramount.
The first of the new projects is being directed by Lauren Montgomery, and fans will be eager to see what she can do. She previously worked on an original series so it’s only natural that they want her involvement in this one as well.
Ramsey Naito, the president in charge of Animation and Development at Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation, said that he is confident about this collaboration between Konietzko, DiMartino, and Montgomery.
“As original creators, Mike and Bryan expand the Avatar universe with us,” said Naito. “We’re keeping it all in the family with Lauren bringing the same kind of expert, beautiful work she did on the original series to her new directing duties on the forthcoming theatrical.”
With the three films rumored to revolve around Avatar Kiyoshi (the Avatar story fans have long wanted), Zuko (everyone’s favorite antagonist-turned-hero) and a story set in the later period of Legend Of Korra era; these new movies are bound to excite fans.
Since the end of their original series, fans have been eager to see what happens next for our favorite bending heroes. Meanwhile Netflix is producing a live-action adaptation that will be unrelated to the three movies and ignore everything that happened in M. Night Shyamalan’s film.
