Also gracing the small screen is Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh, Arden Cho as June, Thalia Tran as Mai, Momona Tamada as Ty Lee, Elizabeth Yu as Azula, and many more. Did we mention the original voice actor for the Cabbage Merchant, James Sie, will reprise his iconic role?

Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Aladdin), Lindsey Liberatore (Walker), and Michael Goi (Swamp Thing, American Horror Story) executive produce, with Goi, Roseanne Liang and Jabbar Raisani also warming the director’s seat.
