Integral to the process, creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino have been involved in every step of this return for the Avatar adventures. 

They will continue steering their creation back into beloved territory with an eye on delivering something bigger than ever before-and maybe even introducing some new fans along the way.

However, the Avatar universe projects plans are still in the dark. There are many who speculate that the new animated films and series will be coming out soon.

Recently, Paramount announced that three new Avatar: The Last Airbender animated films are in production.

The quality of this project is in the hands of its director, Lauren Montgomery. Her work on the original series has already earned her a loyal following that’s eager to see what she can do.

The president of Animation & Development at Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon, Ramsey Naito has faith in the creativity that lies between Konietzko, DiMartino, and Montgomery.

“As original creators, Mike and Bryan expand the Avatar universe with us,” said Naito. “We’re keeping it all in the family with Lauren bringing the same kind of expert, beautiful work she did on the original series to her new directing duties on the forthcoming theatrical.”

The three films are likely to revolve around Avatar Kiyoshi (the Avatar everyone wants to see), Zuko (everyone’s favorite antagonist-turned-protagonist), and a story set in the later period of The Legend of Korra era.

The ending of The Last Airbender left fans eager for more, so when Netflix announced their own live-action series many were excited.

However, this would be unrelated to the Avatar film released by Shyamalan and completely ignore what happened in his adaptation.
