The animated Avatar: The Last Airbender spinoff movie, the first of three, was previously set for Oct. 10, 2025, and will now open on Jan. 20, 2026. Dave Bautista and Eric Nam are headlining the voice cast for the film, which is in development at Paramount and Nickelodeon Studios. Plot details haven’t been revealed, however, it is known that the film will follow Aang, Katara, Sokka and Zuko as young adults, following, and will be set between the events of the finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra.

Nam will voice Aang and Bautista will voice a currently-unnamed villain character. Joining Bautista and Nam in the voice cast are Dionne Quan, Jessica Matten and Roman Zaragoza.

Lauren Montgomery, who worked on the original Avatar: The Last Airbender television show, is directing the project with William Mata. Series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are serving as executive producers alongside Eric Coleman.

Chris Hemsworth will voice a young Optimus Prime and Brian Tyree Henry will voice a young Megatron in Transformers One, the studio’s cartooned origin story based on the Hasbro toys. The movie will detail how the most famous Autobot and Decepticon “transformed from brothers in arms to sworn enemies,” Henry teased last week at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Scarlett Johansson (as Elita-1), Keegan-Michael Key (as B-127), Steve Buscemi, Laurence Fishburne and Jon Hamm round out the voice cast. Toy Story 4 filmmaker Josh Cooley is directing Transformers One with Steven Spielberg, Zev Foreman, Olivier Dumont, Brian Oliver, B.J. Farmer and Matt Quigg serving as executive producers.
