On February 24, 2021, Nickelodeon and Paramount announced that the Avatar Universe will be expanding with the launch of Avatar Studios, a new division dedicated to creating original content, with new series, spin-offs, shorts and feature films. What's more exciting, perhaps, is their appointment of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino as the studio's co-chief creative officers. Their first project will be an animated theatrical film, set to be released on Paramount's streaming platform, Paramount Plus, in addition to Nickelodeon's own platform and a theatrical release. Needless to say, fans of the series (a group that has exponentially grown thanks to Netflix's inclusion of the properties on their streaming platform in 2020) are excited at the prospect of more original content coming to the small and large screens. Here's everything you need to know regarding the news surrounding Avatar Studios and the events that led up to this Konietzko and DiMartino's new creative venture.
