Is Another ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Project on the Way?

Avatar News reveals an original animated series following the next ‘earth cycle’ Avatar, set after the events of ‘The Legend of Korra,’ may be coming to Paramount+ in 2025.

Rumor has it a new Avatar: The Last Airbender project is in the works, featuring a new ‘Earth cycle’ Avatar character. While the news comes from an unverified source, the outlet has proven to be accurate in the past. Read the exciting reveal below:

Avatar News took to Twitter to reveal, “An original animated streaming series set in the future after The Legend of Korra, following the next earth Avatar in the cycle, is coming to Paramount+ in 2025 from Paramount and Avatar Studios.” The image included in the Tweet appears to be a male surrounded in green, hinting at an Earth Bender.

The 2025 date means the possible series will release the same year as the upcoming untitled Avatar Aang film from Nickelodeon Animation, Paramount Animation, Avatar Studios, and Flying Bark Productions. If the rumors are true, the studios have multiple projects set to release in the same year. That’s quite the undertaking.

The upcoming untitled Aang film will be directed by Lauren Montgomery. In a recent statement, president of animation and development at Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation Ramsey Naito said, “As original creators Mike [DiMartino] and Bryan [Konietzko] expand the Avatar universe with us, we're keeping it all in the family with Lauren, bringing the same kind of expert, beautiful work she did on the original series to her new directing duties on the forthcoming theatrical.”

Flying Bark Productions, known for LEGO Monkie Kid and What If…? will animate. The studio stated it “will be looking to push the boundaries of hybrid animation, working within both 2D and CG styles” and looks to expand its team to begin work in 2023. Could this style also be used in the rumored Paramount+ series?

A new Avatar will unfortunately mean the death of water tribe Avatar Korra, a favorite amongst fans for her strong spirit and ties to the LGBTQIA+ community. Is this a sacrifice we’re willing to make?
