Avatar: The Last Airbender: Albert Kim Teases Lots of 'Big Scenes' and 'New Characters as Netflix's Live-Action Adaptation Enters Week 3 of Production

Albert Kim teases big scenes and new characters as Netflix's Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series enters week three of production

A little less than two weeks after Netflix and Albert Kim's (Sleepy Hollow, Nikita) live-action take on Nickelodeon's beloved animated Avatar: The Last Airbender made some major casting news and announced that production was underway, Kim is checking back in from the set and it looks like things are rolling along. The series is filming in a new, custom-built facility in Vancouver. Designed and operated by Pixomondo Virtual Production, the state-of-the-art stage is one of the biggest virtual production volumes in North America, with 23,000 sq ft of stage space and more than 3,000 LED Panels. Using some of the same cutting-edge technology used for Netflix's The Midnight Sky and Disney's The Mandalorian, the virtual stage allows for visual effects to be done in real-time in-camera, combining multiple environments for a new standard for immersive storytelling. "We're thrilled to start production on this incredible project and we're especially excited to work with the technology-benders at PXO to create the wondrous world of ATLA using the most advanced techniques available to filmmakers anywhere in the world," Kim explained.

Now, we're getting a look at Kim's director's chair along with a caption confirming that the third week of filming was underway and that there were "lots of big scenes" and "new characters" on the way. Here's a look at Kim's behind-the-scenes Tweet from the set:

Starring in Netflix's live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series is: Gordon Cormier as Aang, Kiawentiio as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko, Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh, Lim Kay Siu as Gyatso, and Ken Leung as Commander Zhao.

With Kim serving as showrunner, executive producer, and writer of the series, Rideback's Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Aladdin) and Lindsey Liberatore (Walker), as well as Michael Goi (Swamp Thing, American Horror Story), will also executive produce. Goi, Roseanne Liang, Jet Wilkinson, and Jabbar Raisani have been tapped to direct.
