Nickelodeon Creates Avatar Studios To Expand Avatar: The Last Airbender Franchise

Good news to all the Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra fans out there, because Nickelodeon is set to launch Avatar Studios, a division that is specially dedicated to producing original content spanning animated series and movies based on the franchise’s world!

And unlike the universally panned live action remake in 2010, the latest production will involve the series’ original creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, so you know the content will be great.

Avatar Studios will be producing content for platforms including Paramount+ and Nickelodeon as well as third-party platforms and theatrical releases. For now, it is revealed that the first project is an animated theatrical film that is set to start production later this year – how exciting!

But Nickelodeon is not the only one who is interested in expanding the Avatar franchise, Netflix is also currently producing a live-action adaptation of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series. Although creators DiMartino and Konietzko were intially involved in the project, they have since left the production after facing creative differences with Netflix.

Now, only time will tell how fans will react to the different remakes of the original series but one thing for sure, Avatar fans will have a lot to look forward to!
