Post Avatar: The Last Airbender (Netflix)
So we are getting a live action remake of the Aang chronicles on Netflix next year. Makes sense after the success of Lemony Snicker. They’ve made note of how it will not be white-washed or humorless, throwing subtle shade at the M Night version whenever possible.

I’d rather have a continuation of Korra’s story (with some HLA) or even one about the next Avatar after Korra. But I will happily take this. The movie is my all-time least favorite and we need to wipe it from the record book.

I don't know... I hope it's good, and a success, but they have a serious uphill challenge ahead of them. I know that Netflix is doing very well for themselves these days, but I imagine this series will require a hefty budget as well.

Has it been announced if Aaron Ehasz, or any of the creators are attached to this?

I assume he will be too busy with Dragon Prince. Have you seen that yet? I’m gonna watch it after I’m done with BoJack season 5.

DImartini and Konietzo are overseeing the production.

The Dragon Prince is good so far. I watched up to episode 4 last night and didn't want to stop watching. You could easily write it off as another generic animated fantasy series, but the writing is solid, the characters have layers, the themes are more on the mature side of things, and the animation is unique.

I'm a bit disappointed Season 1 is only 9 episodes, unless it's only part 1 of season 1 or something (haven't checked).

Finished The Dragon Prince. Good show so far. I stand by my comments about it in my previous post, though I will say that sometimes, at least to my eyes, the animation style can sometimes "lag" (like a frame rate drop in a video game) during action sequences.

I can’t wait for this. With the creators coming back to help make it I know it won’t be anywhere near as disastrous as the M.Night movie.

I noticed that too! It looked like stop-motion animation at times.

It was still a great show though. Nine episodes weren't enough, even a 10th could have wrapped up a lot of loose ends, but I also liked where they stopped. It was like a nine episode prologue; setting up the rules of the world, the teams of heroes and villains (with some reluctance and chance of people changing sides) and the major goal to work towards that will continuously take them to exciting new places (I don't think the Dragon Queen will be at the Breach).

The Dragon Prince has gotten better and better with each new season, by the way.

Season 1: 7/10
Season 2: 8/10
Season 3: 9/10

Such an odd turn of events considering that Netflix is Known for letting their creative talent do whatever they want. I guess the massive ratings for the original episodes made them realize this would be the new Stranger Things and they panicked.

That's bad I really love the world(s) that these two created and the way they build up the story. Let's hope the live action series does not end being like the movie version from Shyamalan.
