Ai! Painful setback for Netflix series ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’

The live-action version of Netflix now has to do without the creators of the series.

Michael Dante DiMartino in Bryan Konietzko were even more raved about the fact that they were a live-action remake of their animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender were allowed to make from Netflix. But now they leave the project.

Exactly why they left on the project is not entirely certain, but it seems that it has to do with creative disagreements. In any case, DiMartino seems to imply that in an extensive message he posted on his website.

Sudden departure
“When Bryan and I signed up for the project in 2018, we were hired as executive producers and as showrunners. In a joint statement for the series, Netflix stated that it was committed to honoring our vision for this retelling and that it would support us in creating the series. And we let us know how enthusiastic we were about this. But unfortunately it did not turn out as we hoped. And who knows? The live-action version of Netflix may well be and has that potential. And perhaps it will be a series that you will also enjoy. But what I do know for sure is that whatever version you are going to see, this is not what Bryan and I envisioned and wanted to make. ” wrote DiMartino.

Given the feeling is shared door Konietzko: “When Netflix attracted Miek and me to this series two years ago, they publicly pledged to support our vision. Unfortunately, Netflix has failed to keep that promise. Although I got to work with some great individuals, both on the Netflix side and on our small development team, and the general way the project had been created, I felt there was a negative and unsupportive environment. ”

Netflix has not yet responded at the time of writing.
