Netflix's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Series Will Use Music From The Original Show's Soundtrack

Avatar: The Last Airbender composer Takeshi Furukawa suggests the live-action Netflix adaptation will use parts of the original series' soundtrack.

A big announcement has arrived for Netflix's upcoming live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon’s beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series.

Composer Takeshi Furukawa revealed the soundtrack for the Netflix series will include music from the animated show. Furukawa took to Instagram to announce that he would be joining the production team to oversee the musical scoring. "I am truly humbled to receive stewardship of the incredible musical world and themes from the original series." His stewardship of the music will see him recycle the sounds of the animated series with a new orchestration for this upcoming adaptation.

Avatar: The Last Airbender’s original music was composed by Jeremy Zuckerman, a Daytime Emmy Award winner who also created the soundtrack for the follow-up series The Legend of Korra. Zuckerman was not asked to be involved in the live-action adaptation. This will not be Furukawa’s first notable credit as he recently served as series composer on the comedy Mythic Quest and helped to create the music in the video game The Last Guardian.

Netflix has not yet announced a release date for Avatar: The Last Airbender.
