Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s Avatar Studios has added a very important member to the staff by recruiting a veteran who has previously worked on shows like Voltron: Legendary Defender and Star Trek: Prodigy! Avatar: The Last Airbender has been enjoying a bit of a revival over the last few years thanks to its streaming re-releases with Netflix and Paramount+, and many fans have either been able to revisit the franchise or jump into it for the first time. It was then announced that the world of the series would be getting even bigger thanks to a brand new studio, Avatar Studios, with original creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko playing a major role.
It was previously revealed that this new studio was developed with the intent of crafting new animated feature films and TV series set within the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe, and while fans have yet to see what kind of projects are in the works just yet there have been important developments behind-the-scenes as members of the all important staff have been added to the studio. This includes the newest addition, Steve In Chang Ahn, who announced on Twitter that he has been recruited as the Head of Story for Avatar Studios:
I’m the Ahn-vatar: the Last Storybender from the story tribe. Today, I’m joining Avatar Studios as a Head of Story. You’ve gotta deal with it! ???? pic.twitter.com/zPf0J8kn0d
Ahn has previously directed on projects such as Voltron: Legendary Defender, Star Trek: Prodigy, and most recently Amazon’s The Boys: Diabolical animated series. What makes this announcement especially exciting, however, is that it means that the story developments for the Avatar Studios projects is now moving into high gear. It’s yet to be revealed just how each of these new releases will expand on the original two animated series, but there is a ton of room to explore with not only previously established characters but potential new ones as well.
This won’t be the only new release from the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise in the future either as Netflix is currently now filming their own live-action adaptation of the original animated series. This means fans of either medium will have something Avatar to look forward to in the coming months and years. But what do you think? What kind of stories are you hoping to see come from Avatar Studios? Which characters or ideas would you want to see expanded on further?
