Avatar The Last Airbender is set to enter the world of live-action once again via Netflix’s upcoming series which is currently in production, promising to retell the story of Aang and company as they attempt to take down the Fire Nation and the country’s plan at taking over the world. With Avatar Studios at Paramount working on new projects that will once again explore the world of bending, the composer of the original series has seen the animation style for the upcoming series and has some new details to share regarding the return to the Nickelodeon series.
Composer Jeremy Zuckerman helped weave the story of Aang and the gang via its soundtrack when the series arrived on Nickelodeon in 2005, having also worked on the sequel series of The Legend of Korra for the cable channel. He has also been a part of many other animated productions, including several for Warner Bros. Entertainment and its roster of superheroes, creating scores for Jonah Hex, Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam, and more. While his involvement in the revival of the universe from Avatar Studios has yet to be confirmed, it certainly seems as though he might have a role to play when it comes to the return of the benders.
Twitter Outlet Avatar News shared the quote from Jeremy Zuckerman when it came to the animation style that Avatar Studios will be using for the new projects in the Airbender universe, though no stories have been confirmed as to how the animated franchise will return via the Paramount production:
“It’s inspired and gorgeous. The quality is… EVEN HIGHER than you would expect. It’s gonna be exciting and beautiful.”
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the upcoming projects from Avatar Studios won’t be using the same traditional two-dimensional animation that was employed by both Avatar The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, instead deciding to use more computer-generated animation to return the universe back to the fans. While this animation style has yet to be revealed to fans proper, there are plenty of Aang and Korra fanatics that we’re sure will be happy to hear that the projects are nice on the eyes.
