'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Composer Confirms He's Not Working on Netflix's Live-Action Adaptation, But Is Working with Avatar Studios

Jeremy Zuckerman, the Emmy-winning composer behind the music of Nickelodeon's beloved animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra has confirmed that he won't be working on Netflix's upcoming live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation, however, he will be working on new Avatar content as part of Avatar Studios.

In a Tweet, Zuckerman said: "To those who are wondering, I will not be working on the Netflix live action ATLA adaptation. However, I'm beyond excited to further explore the Avatar universe with Mike, Bryan, and everyone else at Avatar Studios."

The news follows Zuckerman Tweeting shortly after Netflix announcing the project in September 2018: "As it’s in early development, there’s nothing official yet but yes, I’ll be doing the music for the @netflix".

It's another blow for Netflix's live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation, which also lost the franchise's original co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino last summer.

In February of this year, ViacomCBS announced the development of an animated Avatar movie made by a new division of Nickelodeon called Avatar Studios, of which DiMartino and Konietzko are co-chief officers. The new studio aims to create new content based around the Avatarverse. The Netflix adaptation won't fall under the banner, however.
