Avatar The Last Airbender trying live-action again at Netflix

The Last Airbender's original co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are both signed on to oversee the show. It's still early days, but many agree that Netflix and Ehasz have managed to capture some of Avatar's trademark magic with The Dragon Prince, which paints the series' upcoming live-action adaptation in a more hopeful light.

In news that will probably make sense to no one, Netflix confirmed that their own live-action re-imagining of the celebrated Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender is in the works.

Production will begin in 2019, with no projected release date yet announced.

Here's the part where I reveal that I've never seen an episode of the Last Airbender series.

PSV coach Van Bommel warns players over Messi shirt swap
Even when Barcelona don't play like the top team that they are, the threat that Lionel Messi poses can never be overlooked. Lozano earned his nickname "Chucky" for his habit of jumping out of hiding places to scare teammates on road trips.

"We can't wait to realize Aang's world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast", DiMartino and Konietzko said in a statement, according to Deadline.

John Staub's concept art of Aang and Appa on the tundra is the kind of start that bodes well for the series, as it looks like it'll echo numerous stylistic choices and thematic threads of the animated show. Special people in each nation, known as benders, have the ability to manipulate one of the elements through martial arts. M. Night Shyamalan attempted to create a live-action film based on the show with his The Last Airbender.

What do you think of the new announcement? 100 years later, a new Avatar named Aang awakens and sets out on a journey to master all the elements in order to bring peace to the land once more.

The only blight on the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise (and the elephant-monkey in the room here) is the epically awful live-action film directed by M. Night Shyamalan. "Netflix is wholly dedicated to manifesting our vision for this retelling, and we're incredibly grateful to be partnering with them", explained Konietzko and DiMartino.
