Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender is the live-action adaptation of animated series, which has already received a green light from the streaming giant and the makers. In August 2020, the animated series’s original creators reportedly parted ways with the live-action version. Ever since the departing of the original creators, the series has been facing insurmountable skepticism.
In the mid-2000s, The Last Airbender was a popular animated series created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. After a successful run, the series also got a spin-off series called The Legend of Korra which introduced an LGBT avatar.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Plot
The plot of the live-action series will hold a similar resemblance to the animated one. The world will be divided into four different nations: Air Nomads, Fire Nation, Water Tribes, and the Earth Kingdom. Each country features specific individuals called the benders that can use their nation’s natural element by using martial arts and telekinesis.
There is one exception bender who is powerful enough to learn and use all four elements. He/she is called the Avatar. The live-action Netflix Original series will follow Aang, the last of air nomads, who was asleep for around a century while he was in the state of Avatar. It is up to Aang and his friends to bring harmony among all nations and peacefully co-exist with each other.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Cast
At the time of writing, the cast of the live-action series has not been finalized yet. Given that currently, the pre-production of the series is in complete disarray, things will work out eventually as Netflix wants the Avatar franchise to have a successful run in terms of live-action, unlike the critically panned 2010 film, Avatar: The Last Airbender.
