Avatar: The Last Airbender Spinoffs and Adaptations

While Avatar: The Last Airbender ended 15 years ago, its popularity resulted in numerous projects, including comic-book short stories and a widely negatively-received live-action film in 2010. Netflix revealed a live-action series remake in 2018, with DiMartino and Konietzko initially named as the showrunners before the two exited the television series due to creative differences. However, there have been rumors Avatar Studios and the Netflix remake may be working closely together.

Set in a world where some people can manipulate one of the four elements, Avatar: The Last Airbender follows twelve-year-old Aang, the last survivor of the Air Nomads and the Avatar, a being who can "bend" all four elements. With Fire Lord Ozai launching a war against the other nations to expand his empire, Aang must quickly learn to master all four aspects if he hopes to save the world. The original series, which premiered in 2005, has garnered universal acclaim for its thematic and emotional storytelling.

All three seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender is available for streaming on Paramount+ and Netflix.
