The well-loved and critically-acclaimed 2005 Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting a live-action reimagining on Netflix, the streaming company announced today.
All that exists alongside the announcement is a single piece of concept art showing a silhouetted Aang petting his air bison Appa in an icy field. It is likely that the project is extremely nascent and the deal was only recently signed, so a product probably won’t arrive for a few years.
The cartoon series spawned a movie directed by Sixth Sense director M. Night Shamylan in 2010, which was financially successful but infamously critically panned. Shamylan tried to tone down the series’ humor for the movie but ultimately was unsuccessful in his goal.
