Nickelodeon is establishing a new division dedicated entirely to creating content in the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise. Avatar Studios is being run by Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, creators of the original animated series. The duo will also serve as co-chief creative officers as the studio creates new animated series and movies set in the world of Avatar.
As reported by Deadline, Avatar Studios will produce content that will be aired on Nickelodeon, the home of the original series and its spin-off, The Legend of Korra. The content will also make its way to Paramount+, as well as third-party platforms. Theatrical releases are also expected for the movies.
An animated movie is the first project for Avatar Studios and will begin production later this year.
