Avatar Studios is a production company launched by Nickelodeon, with Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino as co-chief creative officers. It was announced by Paramount+ on February 24, 2021. The studio will produce brand-new material set in the Avatar universe, including new series, short-form content, spin-offs, and theatrical films.
According to DiMartino and Konietzko, they have a multi-tiered plan for the future of the Avatar series. The projects will expand upon the largely unexplored past, as well as the future of the world of Avatar. Each project will feel like Avatar, but will have its own unique tone and look.
Currently, Avatar Studios is working on a new animated theatrical film that was set to start production in late 2021. The film, as well as further planned films, will be made in an original hybrid 2D and computer-generated (CG) style. Another Avatar series is also due to enter production.
At the same time, Avatar Studios helped to create new canon material for the Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game, and Avatar: The Last Airbender Cookbook: Official Recipes from the Four Nations.
- The creators believe that they now have the freedom and support to make any potential Avatar project they can think of.
- While Avatar Studios is making animated content, published material will still be part of the Avatar series going forward.
