Avatar: The Last Airbender has been announced as the first movie by Avatar Studios at the SDCC. This movie will focus on Aang and the rest of the team Avatar as young adults.

The series was introduced on Netflix in 2020 and got a great response from the viewers. It became a good sign for the studio and it is working on expanding the Avatar universe.

Named after the popular series itself, the movie would focus more on the story of our favorite protagonist and his team as they grow up. Previously, Aang was seen as merely a young child, basically 12 years old (ignoring the fact, that he was trapped in ice for 100 years) at the beginning of the series.

Katara and her older brother, Sokka were also just 14 and 15. Other major characters like Zuko too were in their teens, as the show targeted a much younger audience.

But now as it seems, along with the audience, the characters have grown too. Maybe this is a way to connect with the ones who watched it while they were young, the characters’ adventures as young adults will be shown in the movie. Though not much is known about the plot, it will focus on Aang and his friends.

Night Shyamalan is not a part of it after the disastrous live-action movie created by him in 2010 that too shared the same title.
