“Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”
The iconic words from the early 2000s animated series are about to be given new life in an all-new, live-action reimagining by Netflix. Avatar: The Last Airbender invites old and new fans to experience a world of high adventure where the elements can be controlled and where destinies are shaped and forged.
Get all the details you need below before the series drops on Netflix February 22, 2024.
Everything You Need To Know About Avatar: The Last Airbender
Avatar: The Last Airbender is a live-action remake of the animated series of the same name from creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko that ran from 2005 to 2008. Originally airing on Nickelodeon, the animated series is now available to stream on Netflix.
As a remake, the 2024 live-action adaptation of the classic show will not require viewers to do any additional homework before enjoying the series, the way that prequels, sequels, and spinoffs often do.
The new series should not be confused with the live-action 2010 movie The Last Airbender, which was not received well by audiences or critics.
Conversely, the live-action Avatar series has already generated a lot of enthusiasm and praise with a flood of positive YouTube reaction videos arriving in the wake of the trailer.
Long ago, four nations with supernatural powers to control the water, earth, air, and fire lived in harmony under the guidance and protection of the Avatar, master of all four elements. But that peace was to be short-lived.
Fueled by their thirst for conquest, the Fire Nation launched a deadly campaign against the Air Nomads, erasing the tribe from the map. As the smoke cleared, the shattered world looked out to find that the Avatar had disappeared and all hope with him.
This live-action series will follow the journey of siblings Katara and Sokka of the Southern Water Tribe and their impossible discovery of a boy named Aang, the sole-surviving member of the Air Nomads and rightful successor of the Avatar.
Together, Aang, Katara, and Sokka set out on an adventure to fight back against the Fire Nation and hone Aang’s mastery of the four elements without falling prey to the evil Fire Lord Ozai and Crown Prince Zuko.
