Netflix's live-action Avatar adaptation starts filming soon

Netflix announced that it was going to make a live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender back in 2018.

Fast forward to the present, and it's been quite a long time since we've heard more about the project.

Now, it seems like Netflix is finally ready to start filming.

Hollywood North Buzz reports that Netflix intends to start filming its live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender this November in Vancouver.

For the unaware, Avatar: The Last Airbender is the first media released for the Avatar universe.

The show originally ran for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. 

No one likes to talk about the live-action adaptation. The movie bombed with critics and audiences alike.

The series has always remained popular. However, its return to the streaming giant in 2020 has reinvigorated fan interest in the franchise. 

Netflix's live-action Avatar adaptation will see Albert Kim helm the series as its showrunner (Sleepy Hollow). Dan Lin, Ryan Halprin, and Lindsey Liberator are all on board as the producers.
