Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the original series creators, were poised to return to the series.

The creators later split from Netflix, citing creative disputes about the series’ direction.

Albert Kim has recently been hired as the series’ showrunner by Netflix, while DiMartino and Konietzko have formed Avatar Studios alongside Nickelodeon.

Daniel Dae Kim, who will play Fire Lord Ozai in the series, spoke with Collider about the series’ production schedule.

“I think production starts in a couple of weeks,”

Kim said when asked when he will begin filming for Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Production on Avatar: The Last Airbender was expected to begin in November, according to reports from July. This, however, did not happen.

In recent weeks, the series’ working title was changed from Trade Winds to Blue Dawn.

Netflix has yet to issue an official statement confirming a production date, and there is no expected or official release date for the series.

Expectations for Avatar: The Last Airbender are high since many fans still consider the series to be one of, if not the best, Nickelodeon has ever produced.

Even when the original authors have left, the new version does not have to fall short of the original’s standards.

The performers participating have received high appreciation from those associated with the project, notably Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who will play Prince Zuko’s, Uncle Iroh.

If Netflix has genuinely succeeded in finding actors who can bring the characters to life, they must work hard to guarantee that the plot and production are of equal quality if they are to do justice to the source material.
