3:54 actually, fandomwire is right. There is an upcoming Superman show in CW. It's Lois and Clark or something. So, I dunno. Maybe they could be sadly right as well with ATLA. We'll just have to visit lake laogai again I guess

I think two huge factors that contributed to the new hashtag was a result of the (relatively) distant and recent past. 1: The ATLA live action Netflix adaptation was met with cautious optimism after the atrocity that was the live action movie based off the franchise. People had movie PTSD with this announcement, but we all put in our heads that nothing could possibly top the king of fools which was that film.... right? 2: The OG Creators of Avatar were on board, giving people hope for the series. Netflix had some problems with whitewashing Deathnote that pissed people off for example, and there’s a very real chance this could happen again. However, I believe Netflix is smarter than this. If they don’t learn from Deathnote and the live action film, then that’s a grotesque display of disregard for peoples’ hopes and wishes that will ultimately soil their name in the end. The highest possibility is that the series will be mediocre at best. Not good, not bad, but meh. Keep this in mind- If they somehow manage to do just as bad or worse than the movie, then they literally gave zero shits about the franchise and would be the equivalent of Paramount’s Sonic movie except if Paramount didn’t listen to fans.

I have no problem with a more matured version of Avatar as long as they do age up the characters a little.

Though the series might be a bad idea, I still think people need to have an open mind. Sure it might not be as great as the series but it still might be good. Just because the movie was terrible doesn't mean that this will be just as bad. Plus, we haven't even seen the live action so saying it's bad or comparing it to the movie is in my opinion is unfair. And if the live action does turn out badly then we can at least hope it will turn out slightly better than the movie. Please don't yell at me as this is just my opinion.

I really hope they don’t cancel it. I just got into Avatar and I really loved watching it! I just watched the movie today and I honestly didn’t like it... it wasn’t good at all. I thought I’d like it because I’m a huge sucker for live action remakes and CGI but nope, it was pretty bad 🙃 But I don’t want them to cancel the live action remake of the series. I have some hope for it. I’d love to see how they can remake the series in live action. Even if the creators aren’t a part of it anymore, I’m sure it’ll still be good. They even said it could be and they hired pretty good people, something like that. Let’s all be hopeful and wait until it comes out. Please don’t force them to cancel it. If it’s bad, then we’ll just scream at them and be angry lol

You can’t really crap on something that doesn’t exist yet.. _(this generation can’t tolerate anything new)_ *We should give it a shot, it could actually be good, but if it’s as bad as the movie, mostly talking about the combat and personality, we should ask for it to be cancelled*

I feel like making a live action of ATLA is really really difficult to satisfy everybody, it makes a lot more sense if they had a budget issue, because you would need a lot of CGI, or either shoot onsite in so many different environments, like the southern watertribe, the air temples, the swamp forest, etc. and not to mention the creatures of the world too.

there doesn't need to be a remake, full stop. the 4 part series finale so perfectly resolved the character arcs and ended in a great place, it needs to be left alone. JK Rowling continues to dick around with Harry Potter and it has added nothing, divided fans and somewhat tarnished her legacy. I will defend this show at all costs. The characters are great, the arcs are great, humor, action, philosophy... once in a generation quality show. leave it the fuck alone.

a live action COULD work.. just dont remake atla.. do something live action in the 100 year gap where Aang was gone.. dont touch any of the characters in the show more than a mention of names.. and for the love of god.. do the bending better than that movie we got..
seeing blood in atla would be kinda cool since they have weapons we see almost never used :/

Okay I'm a huge fan of the original series and was kinda hoping the creators would stay on. Given the Death Note Netflix was an abomination and is the oh why did you think this was a good idea section. I am very sceptical of what Netflix will produce. Also for the fact that the creators left due the Netflix were holding there creativity back. On the other hand the internet backlash might knock some sense into them. I mean it kinda worked for the Sonic movie and that was going to be well bad but became a semi watchable B movie. I mean it can be as bad as the dumpster fire Shamlan made right?

Avatar now suffers from the same fate as Star Wars. You are no longer just trying to create something on par with the original, you are trying to please a fanbase that is fueled by nostalgia. It is impossible to please the fans unless you recreate the series scene by scene, and it is impossible to please the critics without taking risks and switching up the original. The Legend of Korra, in the eyes of many fans, failed. Countless amounts of books and comics have been released since the ending of the original series, and now there is very little "wiggle room" for the producer and director. They should take Star Wars' lead and leave the series be, but the Netflix re-release of the series has proven it to be a cash cow. The series will get made, it won't be great, and they will make a ton of money.

I honestly doubt the new creators would be so stupid to white wash. Especially after the movie. I am personally looking forward to a new take of the series, and actually support the creator change to (hopefully) someone with a lot more live action experience than the originals. Sucks that they left, yes, but not necessary a bad thing. As a foot note, M. shamadadadingdong is a director known for his flops and great films, just happened that he was not right for the role of The Last Airbender. Another mistake I hope to not see repeated. The film industry is complicated and its never as simple as it may seem, I've been studying it for 3 years, I would know.

The only chance Netflix has at saving the remake is to be completely transparent about why Bryke left, without accusation. They need to tell us exactly what these creative differences were and let us decide whether those differences are worth exploring, or if they should reinstate the purist views most of the fandom shares.

Honestly speaking: The show could have amazing visual effects, a non-white washed cast and excellent acting but it will never be AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER good. Avatar is an animated show and many of it's charms aren't even possible to achieve in live action. How do you make Aangs' or Sokka's goofy expressions? Or the characters bouncing off from a seemly deadly fall?? Let's face it, this will end in disappointment and disaster for all of us.

I firmly think the live action should be cancelled. Without the creative guiding hand of the original creators I have every doubt this new live action version will properly honor the original. The fans have already been done a disservice once from a live action and we don't want that again. Cancel it or get the creators back and give them what they want

If fans want to cancel the live action show from just the creators leaving, imagine how much of a frenzy there will be when the show comes out and it's all sorts of wrong and makes the movie look good. Personally I don't think we need a live action remake, the original show is perfect and because of the animation it still holds up really well today. The only bit of news I think could be true coming out of the live action is they might age up characters, even that could be fake. No idea where people got the gore and sex from.

I would actually love to see Game of Thrones-ish Avatar. With all the deadly powers it would be hard to make them both real and innocent at the same time! Stones should crash bones, fire should burn every time, etc. Because it's not animation anymore! If that's the deal why Brian and Michael left than I am okay with this scenario.

Tbh I'm most critical of this belief that Bryan and Michael are solely the reason ATLA was succesful at all. It's not really that believable to me. The animation, the freedom the animation studios got in making ATLA, definitely played into that too. And of course there's the writers! All I'm saying is: a whole team of great artists go into making a show like this. The fact that they were involved with the project up until now means one thing: they definitely had their influence on the upcoming show up until now. Even if they won't be involved in the future, I'm glad they were at least involved in the first stage. Personally, I wouldn't mind Netflix veering off the path from the original show. Maybe it'll be a good show in an entirely different way. If it was a blind copy of the original in great live action effects (like Disney is doing, bleh) I'd be pretty damn disappointed. Netflix has at least (to say the least) done very well in producing their shows, including the kids ones, and they really seem to know what they're doing (at the very least in the commercial way). I'm also pretty certain that in times like these they won't be dumb enough to whitewash a cast, that's just PR suicide. We've already seen an Avatar TLA live action movie go horribly wrong, let's be honest; it can't be worse than that.

In my personal opinion I don't think Avatar should be Live Action since the animated series is already perfect as it is. If anything I think Netflix should have gone with an animated anthology of the past Avatar's. Each episode is a different story of an Avatar. Their greatest success or their worst failure. Even a look at how each Avatar dealt with being the Avatar. Since we already have the Kyoshi books they could have started with an episode about her. And depending they could stay with the same animated style or with each Avatar a different one. I feel like this would have been a better move in expanding the world then a Live Action Series since my fear it would be like GOT. Great in the beginning but becoming lackluster as they went on.

Live action would be super expensive for bending. Therefore, they would have to get lower valued talent to act. Also, we don't need the same story again.

The creators only left the live action series because they didn't want Netflix to get in the way of their creative flow the way they did for Stranger Things and other shows like that. I heard they're still working on an animated series slated to be released on Netflix. Based on that, it'll probably be an earth nation avatar.

Look, ATLA is my all time favorite show. Has been since I first watched it as a kid. However this cancel culture needs to stop. If netflix wants to create an interpretation of the series that's aged up, that's their right to do so. Art has a right to exist. Wait for it to come out and critique it. Don't deny its existence. For a show that preaches understanding, I gotta say, I was hoping the internet would have learned a thing or two.

Wow if this is not true i think i messed up a little, but besides, if they do not plan to sexualise and whitewash the characters i would give it a try even it is "darker" because we cant have the same show in a live action. What would be the point to let it exactly the same? I just would watch the original so some changes here and there may not be that bad as long as the stay faithfull to the core of the show. But yeah i would prefer a new animated series by far.

Um... Am I the only one who thinks some changes had to happen? From what I read, netflix wanted things to be more mature to distinguish the live action from the original, so it's not bad right? Then again, why sex? Avatar doesn't have to do anything with that! That sounds disgusting! It's gonna be horible like that! Let's hope that a trailer will prove me wrong and the show won't be bad, otherwise I won't watch it! Is everybody with me?
