Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Left the Netflix series
While we were initially happy with the news that the Netflix Avatar The Last Airbender series being developed would bring in the original show’s creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko it looks like that isn’t happening anymore.
Bryan Konietzko went on Instagram to post his sentiments and announce their departure from the Netflix live-action adaptation. Check out the screenshots below:
So it looks like the two Avatar The Last Airbender creators are officially stepping away from the project citing creative differences. The sad part here is that they are pinning the blame on Netflix for not keeping their word and having them work on THEIR creation’s adaptation for the streaming platform. It reads like the company was adamant with their vision and did not want to get inputs from the team.
It’s also worth noting that this was the same problem that happened with the movie version of Avatar which was directed by M. Night Shyamalan which we all know what happened.
Avatar The Last Airbender is a TV show from Nickelodeon that ran from February 2005 to July 2008 and follows the story of the airbender Aang as he goes on a quest to stop the Fire Nation from ruling the entire world and enslaving other nations. He goes on this wild adventure with his friends namely Katara, Sokka and Toph. The series spawned a sequel called The Legend of Korra which ran from April 14, 2012 to December 19, 2014.
