With Netflix’s Newest release of the 2020 production of “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. Fans are going berserk in hopes that this live action remake makes up for the 4.1/10 star rated nicktoon movie released back in 2010. Here’s what we know so far:
Co-created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, this animated series was the biggest nicktoon/cartoon ever produced in the early 2000’s. In facts it was so popular that the fans decided they wanted more so the creators of the show made a spin-off in 2012 called “Legend of Korra“. Even though Katara made her presence in the show “Legend of korra” and flash backs were giving the fans clues of what really happened after the series ended, it still has the public puzzled, so many questions like what happend to Sokka and much more.
Will the new Re-make be better?
To answer that question let’s bring in the brains of the world behind Avarar! With creators Michael Dante DiMartino, and Bryan Konietzko serving as the executive producers and showrunners, We can firmly believe that this live action re-make will be 10x better now that it’s in the right hands of the creators.
In late May, Bryan Konietzko shared an update on the production of the show saying:
“We’re moving into a new office space, transitioning into the next phase of production. Our core team is growing. We’re writing, planning, and testing. Though there’s plenty that’s new for us in this live action process, we’ve been on this long rollercoaster ride twice before and a lot of the climbs and twists and turns feel familiar. Right now, everything seems slow, and we’re itching to speed up; before we know it, everything will be moving too fast and happening all at once. For those who are eager to see this new series and are asking if we have a trailer yet: thank you for your enthusiasm, sincerely, but you wouldn’t want to see a version of this series that was made within 9 months. Too much Hollywood fare is fast-tracked and the results speak for themselves. Thankfully for us and this series, Netflix is committed to doing it right.”
In September 2019, Bryan Konietzko shared some old storyboard pictures which are from the original animated series but maybe going through them for inspiration for the upcoming series
Is there a 2020 trailer sneak peak?
Sadly so far the only released Avatar: The Last Airbender(2020) TEASER TRAILER (Concept Trailer) has only been released on Youtube.
When are we expecting to see a release date?
Well unfortunately for us, thanks to the coronavirus and the current state of the Film/TV industry the release date is a long way off…
With the creators still looking for Casting members, the production of the series is still in pre-production. I think it’s safe to say there definitely won’t be a 2020 release date.
Given the time it takes for everything to calm down and castings to be taken into consideration it will be a while until anything officially starts happening with the film.
At the earliest, we’re currently predicting a late 2021 release date, but this potentially be pushed back to spring 2022.
