First 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Movie to Focus on Avatar Aang and His Friends

Breaking news from Nickelodeon's Avatar: Braving the Elements – LIVE! panel at SDCC: The first feature-length Avatar: The Last Airbender movie from Avatar Studios will be focusing on Avatar Aang and his friends!

The film will reportedly follow Aang and Team Avatar as young adults in the time between Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. The film releases in 2024 in theaters.

Varney said this in the new video: "Hello Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast friends and Avatar-verse lovers! It's me, Janet, and I am so sad not to be at San Diego Comic-Con with Dante and with all of you. I've just been doing a little reading while I recuperate, and it reminded me that we actually have some exclusive Avatar Studios news for you all! Now, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, a lot of speculation, and a lot of excitement – I feel it too. But we figured it was time to set the record straight. The first feature-length movie from Avatar Studios will be focusing on Avatar Aang and his friends, and I for one cannot wait!"

Previous reports had suggested that the first of the three Avatar films would focus on Kyoshi, one of the previous Avatars, and that the other two would be focused on Zuko and Korra. It's unclear whether or not the Aang-focused movie confirmed at SDCC is the same as the Zuko-focused one which was previously reported, but it is clear that if the Kyoshi and Korra films are real, they will arrive after one focused on Aang.

In addition to the upcoming films, Avatar Studios, the animation studio founded by Avatar creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, is also reportedly ready to work on future TV series set in the Avatar universe.

Avatar Studios was first unveiled last year, and is led by original Avatar creators and producers Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Though its first three projects (including this first film) are set to be animated, theatrical films, the studio has left the door open for other types of projects down the line as well, such as TV series. Avatar Studios has also said it is laying the groundwork for an "Avatar Airbender universe" across multiple TV series, films, and platforms.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Lauren Montgomery would direct the studio's first film, with DiMartino and Konietzko involved alongside Eric Coleman.

Netflix also has a live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender in the works, but Konietzko and DiMartino departed citing creative differences.
