Filming Wraps On Netflix’s Live-Action Avatar: The Last Airbender Series
This news comes from an Instagram post from the series star, Gordon Cormier.
The upcoming live-action remake of Avatar: The Last Airbender will star Cormier as Aang, who is the last Airbender and also the Avatar.
The show is based in a fantasy world in which the four elements – water, earth, fire, and air – lived in harmony with the Avatar as the only bender capable of harnessing all four.
However, everything ended up changing when the Fire Nation decided to attack and wage war on the whole world and the young Avatar vanished.
Turns out that Aang and his flying bison got trapped in ice and were there for 100 years before Katara and her brother Sokka from the Water Tribe ended up finding Aang and freeing him from his icy prison.
Together, the three of them embark on a journey across the globe in an effort to help Aang to master all the elements and try and stop the Fire Nation from ruling all four kingdoms.
Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series shouldn’t be too far away from being released
“Wazzzz uppppp?” Cormier’s wrote in his post as in the image he share, the star posed alongside his co-stars Kiawentiio, Ian Ousley, and Dallas Liu.
The trio stars Aang’s close allies from the Water Nation, Katara and Sokka, and as his fierce rival turned Fire Nation’s prince Zuko, respectively.
Filming for the series began back in November of last year and it has a pretty incredible cast.
Alongside the young stars is Daniel Dae Kim as the villainous Fire Lord Ozai and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as the beloved Uncle Iroh, with Lim Kay Siu, Ken Leung, Elizabeth Yu, Maria Zhang, Tamlyn Tomita, Yvonne Chapman, and Casey Camp-Horinek rounding out the group.
Avatar: The Last Airbender features Albert Kim serving as the series showrunner, writer, and executive producer.
The original animated series’ creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, were going to be the showrunners, but they ended up leaving the production on not-so-great terms with Netflix.
We’ll likely never truly know what happened between them and Netflix.
Kim was joined by executive producers Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore, Roseanne Liang, and Michael Goi.
There is still no official release date for this live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
