Fans rejoice! Avatar: The Last Airbender is FINALLY coming to Netflix next month!
The series has been available on the service internationally for years, but now it will finally be available in the states. This development was only a matter of time after the announcement of a live-action series adaptation of the series, which will be Netflix original.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary this year and what better way to celebrate than to be able to binge the whole series on May 15th!
Avatar: The Last Airbender Official Synopsis
A century ago, Firelord Sozin, ruler of the Fire Nation, launched a world war to expand his nation’s empire. The young Avatar Aang, afraid of his new responsibilities, fled his home; he was forced into the ocean by a storm and encased himself in suspended animation in an iceberg near the South Pole. Sozin, knowing that the Avatar must be an Air Nomad, carried out a genocide against the Air Nomads and continued his world conquest. One hundred years later, Katara and Sokka, teenagers of the Southern Water Tribe, find Aang and revive him.
Other The Last Airbender Media Worth Your Time
Avatar: The Last Airbender has spawned multiple spin-offs and continuations. Here are a couple that I think will be worth your time!
The Legend of Korra
Let’s get the most obvious one out of the way first. The Legend of Korra is absolutely worth your time and I highly recommend you give it a watch if you haven’t already.
The Legend of Korra Official Synopsis
The Legend of Korra sees the latest incarnation of the Avatar, Korra, move to Republic City to learn airbending from Tenzin, Avatar Aang’s son. She enters the pro-bending league and befriends the brothers Bolin and Mako, as well as Asami Sato, heiress to Future Industries, a leading engineering corporation. The ambitious politician Tarrlok enlists Korra to fight the anti-bender uprising of the “Equalists”, led by the masked Amon, who strips benders of their abilities.
The concept of The Legend of Korra started when the series creator’s Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko pitched to Nickelodeon a Avatar: The Last Airbender follow-up animated movie based on what then became the three-part comics series: The Promise, The Search, and The Rift. They instead chose to expand the first season of Legend of Korra to 26 episodes, as opposed to it’s original 12. Speaking of those comics…
The first two seasons of The Legend of Korra are currently streaming on CBS All Access!
