We still don’t know when Netflix will be releasing its live-action take on the beloved cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. There is a vague “2024” promise, but that means a wait time of anywhere from three to fifteen months. In the meantime, Netflix has been ever so slowly dripping out information about the show. The latest nugget: the reveal of what the Fire Nation royal family looks like.

Avatar: The Last Airbender has had a presence in the mobile gaming scene for some time now; the most recent title being Avatar Generations, which we just wrote about last week. But there’s more on the way…publisher Tilting Point and developer AN Games have announced they’re working on their own Avatar game, due for release in 2024.
Avatar Generations is an open-world mobile game that was introduced earlier this year The game is designed to retell the storyline from the original three seasons of the series and give you and your friends the chance to play as Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and Zuko all at once. And even though it’s only a few months old, it’s already celebrating its one-year anniversary…wait a minute, how?
The wildly popular Avatar: The Last Airbender will be getting its own co-op strategy game soon, thanks to Funko Games. Crossroads of Destiny is the subtitle to the latest in a growing library of Avatar-themed tabletop experiences.
Uh-oh. Guess it’s that time…time to reveal the live-action version of the beloved 2000s cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender that Netflix has been working on. The streamer let loose four pictures of the main cast in full costume today, alongside a small teaser that shows nothing but the Elemental Symbols.
We just received two news items on the same day relating to Avatar: The Last Airbender and the world thereof, so we might as well combine them into one post. The first regards Avatar Generations, the mobile game that launched earlier this year.
When will we have a video game set in the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe that is worthy of the show’s quality? That day is…not today, but we can keep hoping. Avatar Generations is a cool idea — a turn-based squad RPG adventure game — but it’s exclusively for mobile devices. Darn!
On August 3, Magpie Games launched the crowdfunding campaign for Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game. Their goal was $50,000, and to put it simply, they’ve busted through that goal so hard that it is now the highest-grossing tabletop RPG campaign in Kickstarter history. It’s so successful that it crossed the $5,000,000 mark last night, which means Magpie has run out of stretch goals to add to the campaign!
One week ago, Magpie Games launched the crowdfunding campaign for Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game, with a goal of just $50,000. It’s succeeded well beyond their modest expectations…the campaign took in over a million dollars in just one day, and as of now it’s earned over FOUR million, making it the highest-grossing tabletop RPG campaign in Kickstarter history.
Where has the roleplaying game based on the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise been all this time? We’re not sure, but the hole is finally about to be filled thanks to a collaboration between CBSViacom and Magpie Games. Announcing Avatar Legends, The Roleplaying Game, which covers both existing series (ATLA and Legend of Korra) in one box.
If a recent story is to be believed, ViacomCBS did not realize how many fans the Avatar world had until the series was put on Netflix and pulled in amazing numbers. Apparently if they had realized this sooner, Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra never would have shown up there — they would have been hoarded in CBS’s own stockpile at Paramount+.
Whitewashing had been the bane of the existence of Asian actors in Hollywood. Asian erasure was the easy way for Hollywood to cast big-name established white actors to play Asian roles. Hollywood use to do yellow face. They give makeup to white actors so they can play Asian roles because of anti-miscegenation laws. When people started seeing it as offensive. They just cast white actors for those Asian roles and change the ethnicity of the characters.
