Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Hits First Major Production Bump

Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are no longer working on Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the iconic animated series.

The creators announced their departure earlier today, sparking further concern among fans who were already sceptical with the project since it was initially announced two years ago.

DiMartino’s blog post seems to have confirmed those fears, as he stated:

“And who knows?

Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar has the potential to be good.

It might turn out to be a show many of you end up enjoying.

But what I can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.”

Both DiMartino and Konietzko cited creative differences as the reason why they have left the project.

Dimartino also stated:

“When Bryan and I signed on to the project in 2018, we were hired as executive producers and showrunners.

In a joint announcement for the series, Netflix said that it was committed to honoring our vision for this retelling and to supporting us on creating the series.

And we expressed how excited we were for the opportunity to be at the helm.

Unfortunately, things did not go as we had hoped.”

Speaking with The Verge, a Netflix representative said (in response):

“We have complete respect and admiration for Michael and Bryan and the story that they created in the Avatar animated series.

Although they have chosen to depart the live action project, we are confident in the creative team and their adaptation.”

Sorry, Avatar fans, signs are pointing to another flop. Time will only tell if Netflix’s live-action adaptation will be as bad as M. Night Shyamalan’s 2010 movie adaptation.
