Avatar: The Last Airbender is undoubtly one of the best animations that has come out of the West. Although intended to a children’s show, the production value, mythology, and compelling storyline set apart from all other American animations. Not to look down on other satirical contemporary cartoons though, like Family Guy, South Park, and Archer, all great cartoons (and these are only modern animations…).
After ending nearly 2 years ago, a new spin-off series is now in production. I’m pretty pumped for it especially because Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko themselves are writing all the episodes themselves, allowing no space for fillers. Right now, it’s aimed to be a mini-series, but that’s the way The Last Airbender started off too, so who knows, maybe it could evolve into a full series.
I’m also looking forward to the main setting of the series, a place called “Republic City.” It’s described as a steampunk type city, so you can tell that I am REALLY looking forward to the set design. It’s set to take place 75 years after the end of the last series, a changed world where people are filled with anti-bender sentiment. I look forward to what the creators of this world will take us this time.
