How can I not talk about this! ICYMI, it was announced that 3 new animated films were in development from Paramount and Avatar Studios, and it seems we know what those 3 films are. The three films (potentially) are Avatar Kyoshi, Fire Lord Zuko, and Korra!
You can read what Deadline reported here regarding the announcement of the films:
Paramount and Nickelodeon have announced that three new animated Avatar films are in development under the latter’s Avatar Studios banner. Lauren Montgomery (Avatar: The Last Airbender) is attached to direct the untitled first installment.
Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, who created the franchise-launching series Avatar: The Last Airbender for Nickelodeon, will produce alongside that show’s EP, Eric Coleman. Paramount Animations’s and Nickelodeon Animation’s EVP of Movies and Global Franchises, Latifa Ouaou, will oversee development on the first film, alongside Jason McConnell, who serves as Vice President of Animation at Nickelodeon Animation & Paramount Animation.
Montgomery is a veteran director, producer and storyboard artist who served in the latter capacity on the original Avatar series. Additional credits on the directing side include Voltron: Legendary Defender, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Young Justice.
And here’s the source, Avatar News, who revealed what the three films are:
The first animated movie coming from Avatar Studios is the prequel I reported on before, and it’s a “prequel” because it stars the most recent earth Avatar before Aang and Korra: Avatar Kyoshi.
Next, I can confirm that the second movie will be the one I exclusively revealed last month: a story focused on Fire Lord Zuko.
Lastly, and this is a brand-new reveal, the third movie is set in the era of Avatar Korra, after the end of the animated series.
This is one of my favorite news of the year. I love the Avatar (not the blue one) franchise, so I’m excited. My favorite thing about this is that Korra is getting a film, especially since I’m a big Korra fan and is my top character. Yeah, it’s great to be an Avatar fan right now.
