Netflix had taken fans of the classic Nickelodeon animated series by surprise when they had declared production of a new live-action adaptation of the franchise determined to have original makers, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, serve as the showrunners. Lamentably, the last we had heard from this production as far as substantial data was the exceptionally public exit of those makers from the live-action series because of creative differences. In any case, as indicated by new reports, work has continued on Netflix’s live-action adaptation.
A new report from Hollywood North has expressed that shooting for the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series for Netflix is at present intending to start later this Fall. That, however their report for the series additionally demonstrates a working title of “Trade Winds.” With this being a report, tragically neither the shooting start or working title has been officially uncovered by Netflix. However, in the event that this report shakes out to be right, we could be seeing more from this series very soon.
The report states that shooting of the new series will start this November in Vancouver, however there still can’t seem to be an official affirmation of a new showrunner being set for the Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series following DiMartino and Konietzko’s exit. More reports have prodded that Albert Kim (whose credits incorporate series like Leverage, Nikita, Sleepy Hollow and more) had been set as the new showrunner, yet Netflix still can’t seem to uncover an official affirmation for sure.
The last official piece of information we have gotten from Netflix about the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series was their statement following statement Konietzko and DiMartino’s ways out last year “We have complete respect and admiration for Michael and Bryan and the story that they created in the Avatar animated series,” a Netflix representative said about the exit. “Although they have chosen to depart the live-action project, we are confident in the creative team and their adaptation.”
