New 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Animated Movie Trilogy in the Works with Dave Bautista Joining

On February 22, 2024, the long-awaited live-action adaptation of the popular Avatar: The Last Airbender series finally premiered with the eight-episode first season. The series adapted the initial stories of the popular animated series and regardless of the final result, most fans were actually eager to see what Netflix has done with the series, and while there have been some lukewarm comments, the series was an overall success for Netflix, although it remains to be seen what is going to happen to it in the future.

The original animated series, as well as its sequel, The Legend of Korra, are considered to be among the best animated series in history and are among the most popular animated series in the world. Building on the revitalized success of the franchise, Paramount was quick to announce that three new animated Avatar works are going to appear in the future.

Namely, as has been confirmed, three new animated Avatar movies are in the work, which will – according to what we know – follow the adventures of three different Avatars. They are not going to be interconnected, as you can see, but they will become part of the Avatar canon and will expand the story shown in the animated series.

The first of these movies will be focused on an adult Aang and is set to be titled Aang: The Last Airbender, with a scheduled release date set for October 10, 2025. Lauren Montgomery, a storyboard artist on the original series, will direct the movie, while the series’ creators, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will also return, executing producing the film.

The plot details have not been revealed, but we know that Eric Nam will provide us with the voice of the adult Aang, while Dave Bautista has joined the production in a villainous role. On top of that, Dionne Quan, Jessica Matten, and Román Zaragoza have been cast in unspecified roles, but they will most likely voice the adult versions of Toph, Katara, and Sokka, respectively.

This is certainly great news and CinemaCon has once again provided us with some great information. Be sure to keep following us for more updates, as we are going to bring you all the latest news for you to enjoy.
