When Avatar: The Last Airbender arrived on Netflix during the 2020 quarantine, the fandom experienced a massive renaissance. However, it has been nearly 8 years since any new content was animated, with the final episode of the sequel series The Legend of Korra airing way back on December 19, 2014. The good news is, that’s about to change! After Avatar Studios announced back in June that they are working on three new films for the series, Paramount confirmed last week that the first of those films has an official release date of October 10, 2025: over one decade since The Legend of Korra ended, and TWO decades after the original series first aired.
Many fans were disappointed that The Legend of Korra took place so many years after The Last Airbender. Although the graphic novels picked up where the cartoon left off, Team Avatar are still teenagers in these comics; we never get to see them as young adults, except for in the image above. In fact, we only ever see them as either teens or elders. The plot for the 2025 film is still unknown as of right now, but fans are crossing their fingers that we will finally get to witness the adventures the Gaang embarked on in the 70-or-so years between the end of the graphic novels and the beginning of The Legend of Korra.
