The streamer announced Tuesday that it will produce a reimagined live-action series based on the Nickelodeon cartoon “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” from original series’ creators Michael Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko. The two will serve as showrunners and executive producers on the project.
The new series will be created in partnership with Nickelodeon and will start production in 2019.
The original “Avatar: The Last Airbender” aired for three seasons and 61 episodes from 2005 to 2008 on Nickelodeon. The story follows the adventures of Aang and his friends, who must save the world by defeating Fire Lord Ozai and ending the destructive war with the Fire Nation.
The cartoon has been adapted into a comic book and graphic novel series and the 2010 live-action feature film, “The Last Airbender,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
