An untitled Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action remake is a new series being produced by Netflix in partnership with Nickelodeon, and is aiming to retell the story of Avatar: The Last Airbender in a live-action format. Both Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko were announced as returning as they helm this adaptation, as they were "thrilled [...] to realize Aang's world as cinematically as [they] always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast".[1] Production was scheduled to begin in 2019.[2] According to its Netflix page, the series is set to be released sometime in 2021.

In August 2020, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko announced on social media that they were no longer involved in the production of the live-action series, citing creative differences that developed between them and the production team.[3]
