Some exciting news for fans of Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender was revealed at the Avatar: Braving the Elements – LIVE! panel during San Diego Comic-Con. It has now been confirmed that the first feature-length movie from Avatar Studios is set to focus on Aang and his friends.
The news was revealed by Janet Varney, the voice of Korra in The Legend of Korra and the co-host of the Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast. It was previously reported that the first film from the studio would focus on Kyoshi, with subsequent films focusing on Zuko and Korra.
