Earlier this week, Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, co-creators of Avatar: the Last Airbender, announced they’re leaving Netflix’s live-action adaptation due to creative differences. While rumors still abound, here’s my two cents on this turn of events.
Here’s to my all-time favorite cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender! I could go on for hours and hours about how amazing this show is. From the fighting based on real-world martial arts to the inspiration from real-world cultures, to its incorporation of anime art-styles. Avatar: The Last Airbender was, is, and hopefully always will be, the gold standard by which I judge cartoons. And I’m glad it’s up on Netflix in America.
