Netflix seems eager to prove that their live-action adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender is going to be great. Or at least, they seem eager to prove that it’s better than what M. Night Shyamalan came up with back in June 30, 2010. To be honest though, in my opinion: that’s a really low bar to hurdle. Fortunately, it looks like Netflix have at least managed to not only hurdle that really low bar, but soar a decent height above it. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out Netflix’s official teaser below, and see if this meets your expectations as an Avatar fan? The one starring the Gaang, I mean. Not the James Cameron one.
Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender ~ Official Teaser Details
Netflix is proud to unveil the first official teaser trailer for their live-action series adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender on YouTube. Said trailer seems to show a focus both on the main characters of the series, as well as the world this story takes place in. Which is quite fitting, considering that the original animated series by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko also did the same thing, but with a lot more comedy than what this teaser showed. At the very least though, we can tell that Netflix showrunner Albert Kim is doing a much better job than M. Night Shyamalan. I mean, wonder of wonders: Appa actually looks like Appa, and Momo actually looks cute. Now we can only hope that the main characters, especially Aang (played by Gordon Cormier) act in character.
Unfortunately, it might still be a while until we actually get to see it. That official teaser trailer reveals that Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender will make its debut sometime in 2024. All we know is that it’s only going to be on Netflix, and that’s it. Tune back in to THS later to find out a more specific release date when we do.
