'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Bursts to Life in Gorgeous CG Fan-Made Film

Avatar: The Last Airbender made a major comeback last year, and the franchise is set to thrive well into the future. After returning to Netflix, Avatar: The Last Airbender was thrust towards a new generation of fans, and those who watched the animated series back in the day were glad to revisit Aang and the Gaang. Now, it seems one of those fans took their visit to the next level, and they did it with a stunning CG animated clip.

The piece comes from Regan Tang (@regantang13) over on Instagram. It is there the cinematic animator worked with CJ Tan (@thisiscjtan) to bring out a new side of Aang. The pair used their free time to make a CG short for Avatar, and it is pretty much flawless.

As you can see above, the video begins with Aang training on his own while the night sky looms overhead. The boy is putting his Earthbending skills to the test here, and his ferocious movements are as graceful as they are powerful. As the clip continues, Aang manages to tap into the Avatar state, and the video ends with the boy leaping forward following his transformation.

"Here's a personal animation I've been working on during my free time, after countless polishing I think is finally ready to be published," Tang wrote online, and honestly? Yeah, we think it was time! This is a gorgeous piece of work that captures the incomparable choreography of the original Avatar show. And to make things better, this video acts as proof of concept for what's actually coming to the franchise.

If you did not know, Avatar is currently being revived, with the franchise's co-creators launching Avatar Studios with Nickelodeon. The group is focused on expanding the IP with new series and movies. Not long ago, it was announced that the next Avatar movie will dabble with CG, and some fans were wary of the change. But after seeing this fan-made short, those worries should disappear. Oh, and it wouldn't hurt if Tang and Tan got a job offer out of the ordeal! A live-action adaptation is also currently in the works at Netflix, without its original creators.

What do you think about this fan-made short? Do you want Avatar to pursue CG projects like this in the future? Share your thoughts with me in the comments section below!
