The iconic Nickelodeon show “Avatar: The Last Airbender” premiered in February 2005, and for the next three years, stunned audiences with its beautiful animation style along with an amazing storyline. It was followed by “The Legend of Korra” in 2012 which centered around the next avatar.

 A live-action adaptation of the show, working with the two original creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino was announced in 2018 by Netflix. However, the creators announced their departure from the project due to “creative differences” with the Netflix team in June 2020. Fans were not disappointed for long because in February 2021 Avatar Studios was announced, a production company created by Nickelodeon to expand on the vast “Avatarverse.” 

Fans continue to buzz about possible storylines that may be animated or expanded. From the backstory of The Red Lotus villains in “The Legend of Korra,” the novels of Avatar Kyoshi, to adult “Gaang” from the original series, fans have much to look forward to even if it is 16 years after the first airing.
