Avatar: The Last Airbender fans have been waiting for more animated content from the team who created the show. The first animated series, which ran on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008, was a massive hit and is considered to be one of the best television shows ever created. Nickelodeon also released a spinoff, titled The Legend of Korra, which premiered in 2012 and ran for four seasons.
Now, the team behind both animated shows is returning to make a feature film that will be heading to theaters worldwide. Paramount and Nickelodeon Animation already announced that three animated movies are in production, but fans will have to wait for a while before they return to the world created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko.
The first movie is being referred to as the "untitled Aang Avatar film," so little is known about the project right now, but Paramount already confirmed that Lauren Montgomery, who previously worked on the acclaimed Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, will direct the first of the three planned Last Airbender films.
All three animated films are being developed under the Avatar Studios banner, which was launched in 2021 with the goal of created original series and films set in the magical world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, for release on Paramount+, Nickelodeon platforms, and unspecified third-party platforms, as well as in movie theaters.
Here's everything we know about the first Avatar: The Last Airbender movie, including its theatrical release date, plot, and more. Note that we will update this article with more details when more news about the film arrive.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Animated Movie Release Date
Paramount has confirmed a 2025 release date for the first Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie.
Variety reported that the untitled Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie is set to release in theaters on October 10, 2025.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Animated Movie Plot
During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Janet Varney, who voiced Korra in her titular animated series, officially announced Team Avatar would return for the first Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie. This means that fans should expect to see more of Aang and his friends, Katara, Sokka, and Toph, who led the first animated series.
Plot details for the first Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie are still being kept under wraps, but we will update you here with the latest information once more official details are released.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Animated Movie Cast
Paramount and Avatar Studios haven't announced the cast for the first Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie, but it'll be interesting to see how they will cast for it. Zachary Tyler Eisen, the voice actor of Aang, retired from the industry right after the the animated series ended, and of course, it's unlikely that he will return to voice Aang because he's no longer a child.
Other actors who participated in the series, like Dante Basco (Zuko), Grey DeLisle (Azula), Mae Whitman (Katara), and Mark Hamill (Ozai) are still in the industry, so we might see them return to reprise their roles.
Michaela Jill Murphy (Toph) and Jack Desena (Sokka) still appear at comic conventions where they are celebrated for the voices they provided for their popular characters, so they could return to provide voices for the upcoming animated films.
Is there already a trailer for the first Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie?
Since the release date was just announced in 2022, and that the project is still in its early stages, don't expect a trailer to arrive anytime soon, but we'll give you an update once it's officially out.
