Netflix's Live-Action 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Series Might Rewrite Aang's Backstory

Details for Netflix's live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender surface, revealing some major changes to Aang's backstory.

Since the departure of Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko in 2020, little news surrounding Netflix's live-action adaptation has been released. That changed recently when plot and character descriptions surfaced.

Purportedly acquired by The GWW, the descriptions bear broad similarities to the overall plot of the beloved animated series, but possesses major differences when it comes to the characters. Aang still must defeat Fire Lord Ozai and save the world from the forces of the Fire Nation, but his backstory seems to have changed: "Adopted at birth, Aang has struggled with questions as to how he fits in. But his loving parents have worked hard to make him feel accepted. Aang has grown up to become generous, kind-hearted and cheerful. Aang had also been gifted with an incredible mystical power. He doesn’t really understand it, but it could be the key to saving the world from a global conflict. It’s a responsibility he’s reluctant to accept because it’ll take him away from his family, friends, and everything he knows."

For casting, Netflix is reportedly searching for a South East Asian or South Asian male around the age of 12 to play Aang. Other characters are also mentioned. The streaming giant is searching for Native American actors to play Katara and Sokka, who will be 14 and 16 years old, respectively; and an Asian male around 17 years old to play Zuko.

While each character's personality appears to mirror their animated counterparts, there are clear changes that have been made. The story of Sokka and Katara's mother, for example, no longer involves a Fire Nation raid, but a mysterious supernatural event.

The description for Zuko, meanwhile, makes no explicit mention of banishment and his central conflict is stated to be one between his militaristic upbringing and his good-hearted nature. Additionally, the context of his enmity with Aang has also changed. The description reads, "When Zuko discovers he has developed mysterious powers and is competing with Aang for a key role in their project, Zuko's father tells him to stop at nothing to win. And if he doesn't, he shouldn't bother coming home."

Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko announced their departure from the series in August 2020, suggesting that creative differences compelled them to abandon the project. DiMartino stated on his Facebook page that "Whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make."

Earlier this year, both creators were appointed as co-chief creative officers of Avatar Studios, a division of Nickelodeon dedicated to producing more content set in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel series, The Legend of Korra. Alongside the launch of Avatar Studios came the announcement of a feature-length animated film, the details of which have not yet been revealed. Netflix's live-action Avatar series won't be released under the Avatar Studios banner.

Below are the purported casting calls, via The GWW:


A reimagined live-action series based on the award-winning and beloved Nickelodeon animated series ‘AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER’ which follows the adventures of the main protagonist Aang and his friends, who must save the world by defeating Fire Lord Ozai and the destructive war with the Fire Nation.



Male, Asian. Lead Character is 12, male, of East Asian or South Asian heritage. Aang is a typical twelve-year-old boy. A bit goofy, a bit nerdy, restless in school, aways eager to join his friends for fun and games. He’s nimble, energetic, and quick in the schoolyard. Adopted at birth, Aang has struggled with questions as to how he fits in. But his loving parents have worked hard to make him feel accepted. Aang has grown up to become generous, kind-hearted and cheerful. Aang had also been gifted with an incredible mystical power. He doesn’t really understand it, but it could be the key to saving the world from a global conflict. It’s a responsibility he’s reluctant to accept because it’ll take him away from his family, friends, and everything he knows. All he wants is to just be a regular kid. SERIES REGULAR


Female, Native American. Character is 14, female, of heritage indigenous to North America.
Katara is smart, athletic, determined, and hopeful. She’s had to keep her family together ever since her mother was killed in a mysterious supernatural event several years ago, a trauma that haunts Katara every day. Recently, she has started to develop strange new powers that both intrigue and scare her. She’s looking for someone to help her understand these changes. But she has also started to find hope in the thought her new skills could lead to a brighter future for her and her family. SERIES REGULAR


Male, Native American. Character is 16, male, of heritage indigenous to North America.
Katara’s gangly and strong older brother. Sokka is a teenager who’s forced to grow up too fast. Since his mother’s death, he had to become the leader of the famly. Which has led him to butt heads with his sister, who resents his overprotective nature. He’s concerned about her new powers, worried they might put her in harm’s way. Despite everything, he and Katara have a natural rapport, and they trust each other. He has a sharp, sardonic wit, which he often uses as a defense mechanism during uncomfortable situations. But it also makes him entertaining and likeable. SERIES REGULAR


Male, Asian. Character is 17, of East Asian or South Asian heritage. In excellent shape, focused, and driven. Zuko has been driven to be an overachiever by his overbearing father; a career military man. Failure is never an option, and it doesn’t matter who you hurt to get to the top. Zuko has struggled to reconcile that philosophy with his kind-hearted nature. That conflict has made him intense and guarded; which is why he comes off as brusque and arrogant. When Zuko discovers he has developed mysterious powers and is competing with Aang for a key role in their project, Zuko’s father tells him to stop at nothing to win. And if he doesn’t, he shouldn’t bother coming

In additional news:

It's being reported that Jang Chol Lee will serve as a concept designer on the series according to IMDBPro with his previous credits including Big Hero 6, Tangled, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Beowulf.

Dan Lin is listed as an executive producer alongside his company, Rideback. Rideback is responsible for some huge movies (predominantly for Warner Brothers) including the Sherlock Holmes movies, the Lego Movies, and IT films.

Albert Kim is believed to be taking over the showrunner duties who is known for working on TNT’s Leverage and Nikita. In addition, Ryan Halprin and Lindsey Liberatore are listed as producers with Rideback Productions helming the project. Rideback recently sold off another project to Netflix in the form of Parallel.

It's also being reported that Marc David Alpert was at one point producing the series too. Marc’s impressive credits span decades with him working on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lethal Weapon, and Nikita. However, recent production listings omit his name.

IMDb also currently lists Ryan Halprin and Lindsey Liberatore as executive producers too.

In June 2021, fans learnt that Michael Goi is set to direct in the new Netflix series. Although yet to be officially confirmed, the accomplished cinematographer has worked previously on projects such as American Horror Story, Swamp Thing, Mary and Megan is Missing.

Production will go ahead in Vancouver, Canada and although has been listed to get underway multiple times, it’s now believed through multiple sources that production is set to get underway in November 2021 and run through April 2022.

The show is being filmed under the working title of Trade Winds.

El Dorado Musical Theatre in Calif. Brings SpongeBob’s Adventure to the Big and Small Screen!

“And the show must go on” has never rung truer for El Dorado Musical Theatre in El Dorado Hills, California, as the theater group leaders, actors and techs have had to reimagine live theater while dealing with a pandemic and COVID-19 protocols.

adventure in Bikini Bottom. Watch it on the big screen this Friday

With Debbie Wilson at the reins, plus her creative production team and the many talented actors, EDMT has pulled through swimmingly and now invites the audience to dive into The SpongeBob Musical, opening June 25. The EDMT team has developed a creative way to put on this “live” performance like never before.

“This year has pushed us in different kinds of creativity,” Wilson explained to Village Life.

In order for EDMT to ensure the show would go on, big changes had to be made and a new reality began to form — one without an audience, something the cast members said they really missed. Rehearsals were modified as actors were rotated through the studio, filming shots solo when performing without a mask was necessary and pods were formed for those actors whose scenes were to be filmed together. The addition of these changes brought a new set of challenges, which led to longer filming time and creating more work for both cast and crew.

“Insane” is how Wilson described the process.

But with these changes brought new opportunities for the behind-the-scenes crew. Choreographer Anjie Rose Wilson and director of photography Ryan Van Overeem were tasked with turning a theater production into a two-hour movie. Collaboration became key, they said, especially when filming scenes with unmasked performers. The need to schedule different pods for filming purposes and keep the other cast and crew members distanced and protected meant characters didn’t necessarily play their story all the way through. Some will see the final product for the first time once the movie is complete.

With all of the crazy challenges, one thing that didn’t change was the ability for Zach Wilson to create an impressive stage that takes the viewer to the underwater world of Bikini Bottom, where SpongeBob and his friends are in peril. As chaos ensues, the need for a hero is eminent … but who is brave enough to save Bikini Bottom?

As Zach explained, a challenge he faced creating a set for a film rather than for a live performance was the need to give the room a 360 degree view that filming provides to the viewer. This meant creating more depth, adding interesting vignettes and utilizing lighting in different ways.

And as much as Wilson said he misses live theater and human interaction, he told Village Life, “I am grateful that we have these opportunities.”

Those words were echoed by the cast.

Carson Beards, who plays Perch Perkins, the reporter who reports on news everyone already knows, shared that a lot of his own personality comes through in his role. “I find it really funny,” said Beards of his character.

Beards made his EDMT debut in 2009, when he was just 8, as one of the Lollipop Guild Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz and said he has aspirations to perform on Broadway as a swing ensemble member on the National Broadway Tour.

The mayor of Bikini Bottom is played by Katie Chiappone, who admits that as mayor, she is not doing a very good job. “The mayor is selfish. She wants everyone to follow her, but only wants what’s best for her and then what’s best for the town,” Chiappone explained.

The adorable boating school instructor, Mrs. Puff, is played by Ashley Slavin, who shared how much she loves playing her character and especially enjoys having the ability to rehearse her role until it’s perfect for the film version. Slavin has been with EDMT for 10 years, beginning in 2011 when she played Spoon in Beauty and the Beast.

Jack Gregory is making his debut playing the buff surfer dude, Larry the Lobster. Although this is his first year with EDMT, he said he has been interested in acting since he was 6. He told Village Life he found the process of working in film to be cool as he had the chance to see the crew create each character.

SpongeBob’s boss and owner of the Krusty Krab, Eugene Krabs, is played by longtime EDMT performer Ty Rhoades, who said he enjoyed taking his character and making the role his own. Rhoades, like many other actors, said he prefers live performances to filming, but did acknowledge that he learned a thing or two working on the film side. This is Rhoades’ ninth year with EDMT, his first performance was in Seussical in 2012.

Old Man Jenkins is played by Nathan Hansen. “He thinks everyone comes to him for his wisdom,” Hansen explained. While playing his character, Hansen shared a realization. “He is not a character I would want to be when I’m that age.” Hansen debuted in Alice in Wonderland in 2015.

At first, Debbie Wilson said she wasn’t completely smitten with the idea of taking on The SpongeBob Musical, which last performed on Broadway in 2018. What drew her to this eclectic musical was the legendary and talented song writers who wrote original music for the show — David Bowie, Steven Tyler, Cyndi Lauper as well as newer performers like Panic! At the Disco, Lady Antebellum and many others.

Nickelodeon’s The SpongeBob Musical is based on the series by Stephen Hillenburg with book by Kyle Jarrow and musical production conceived by Tina Landau. This production is directed by Debbie Wilson with choreographer Anjie Rose Wilson, vocal director Justin Harvey, costume designer Karen McConnell, director of photography Ryan Van Overeem and art director Zach Wilson.

EDMT’s The SpongeBob Musical will be live-streamed for an audience at 6 p.m. Friday, June 25, at Rolling Hills Church in El Dorado Hills. To purchase tickets for the in-person screening event and for more informations visit the EDMT website Home streaming will be available July 2 & 3 and July 9 & 10.

Reebok Debuts 90s-Inspired Power Rangers Collection

Reebok Debuts 90s-Inspired Power Rangers Collection

(BOSTON) June 22, 2021 – Today Reebok unveils its first Reebok x Power Rangers collection in partnership with Hasbro. Inspired by the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series of the 90s, this full-family footwear collection pairs iconic Reebok silhouettes with five of the original Power Rangers in both performance and lifestyle silhouettes.

The characters featured in this collection include the Red Ranger, Black Ranger, Blue Ranger, Pink Ranger, Yellow Ranger and Megazord. Each of the key footwear models that represent the Power Rangers incorporate elements connecting the shoe to its corresponding Power  Ranger and their Zord.

Highlights of the Reebok x Power Rangers line include:

  • Zig Kinetica II Red Ranger ($140) – The Red Ranger’s impressive athleticism and powerful personality pairs perfectly with Reebok’s all-new Zig Kinetica II. The Zig Kinetica II Red Ranger also features a jagged toe box to represent the  Tyrannosaurus Zord’s teeth with silver Zord accents along the midsole. Also available in Zig Dynamica for grade school and preschool.
  • Nano X1 Black Ranger ($150) – This version of Reebok’s most versatile training shoe yet, the Nano X1, was inspired by the Black Ranger’s sleek look, agility and speed. The Nano X1 Black Ranger allows you to perform a wide range of physical activities in style. The shoe even features a heel tab design that references the Black Ranger’s signature 90s fashion sense. Available in adult sizing.
  • Club C Legacy Blue Ranger ($120) – Rather than being at the forefront of every fight, the Blue Ranger’s power comes from within. This Club C Legacy pays homage to the Blue Power Ranger’s work through the translucent sole, which shows an important aspect of the shoe that is often shrouded by the outsole. The sneaker also includes a white collar and heel blocking to resemble the design of the Triceratops Zord’s crown. Available in adult, grade school and preschool sizing.
  • Freestyle Hi Pink Ranger ($120) – Reebok’s Freestyle Hi, the first workout shoe made exclusively for women, is the perfect silhouette to represent the Pink Ranger, known for promoting individual empowerment and investing in others by teaching aerobics at her community center. The shoe also incorporates pink stripes down the front of the upper that make reference to the Pterodactyl Zord, as well as a green broken heart on the inside strap that alludes to the Pink Ranger’s relationship with the Green Ranger. Available in women’s, grade school and preschool sizing.
  • Club C Yellow Ranger ($100) – The Club C, a silhouette known for its’ adaptability from the skate park to the tennis court, matches the Yellow Power Ranger’s signature versatility. In addition to Zord markings, the Club C Yellow Ranger features a wing logo on the back of the tongue as a tribute to Yellow Ranger actress Thuy Trang. Available in adult sizing.
  • Question Mid Megazord ($180) – The Question Mid Megazord features a range of markings to represent the Zord, from the black and yellow logo on the tongue that resembles Zord eyes to the V-printed eyelets that emulate Zord teeth. The shoe also includes a question mark on the right toe with an M for Megazord.

Beyond unique details that relate to each character, each style incorporates a Power Coin, the Power Rangers bolt and materials inspired by the metallic Zords.

All six adult models will be packaged in shoeboxes designed to resemble different elements of the Megazord. Once assembled, these six boxes combined will create a limited edition Megazord figure akin to the television show model.

The Question Mid Megazord will be available exclusively at beginning June 29, 2021 at 10am EST. All remaining models in the Reebok x Power Rangers collection will be available at both and various additional retailers on June 29, 2021 at 10am EST.

Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 28 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest-running kids’ live-action series in television history, with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the franchise celebrates its 28th season, “Power Rangers Dino Fury,” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.
