I waited a few hours before posting this because I thought it might be a hoax.

As annoyingly reactive as the spots where I've seen it posted are - namely tumblr and twitter - I do admit I gotta share their apprehension.  They got beef because Netflix, but I'm still spotty because I don't know who's writing this show.  Bryke are on board as execs, and while that's a proper step we also as a fandom are very much aware how little a title like that can mean.  But that's beside the point.  Bryke made ATLA look good, but the writers made that show be good and nowhere is that fact more clear than comparing any season of ATLA to even the best season of LoK.

I have watched AtLA to completion multiple times, bought the original DVD boxed sets and the newly released blu rays.  I never watched Korra more than once and never even considered getting it on video in any form.  Korra feels like a kids show that wants to make everyone believe it's more mature than it is and is often times comically inept in that pursuit...even in that one good season*.  AtLA feels like a kids show that so confident and well structured, it turns out to be more mature simply through its own nature and never tries to force the issue.

All of that I credit to good writing and until I get a feel for whose really behind the wheel of this thing, I don't got much reason to go all-in with my fandom chips.

*Yes, only season 3 was worth a damn.  Season 4 wasn't good, it was simply not as bad as the first two seasons.  Fite me.

Yeah, I honestly think this announcement is really premature. I guess they wanted to get it out there before the leaks started, but it's such a bonkers move that for the most part I'm just seeing lots of confusion across the various fan platforms. There's just not enough info to even guess what we might be getting. Sure, some people are hyped that we're getting anything at all, and some are taking their love for Voltron or Stranger Things and conflating it with all Netflix productions, but mostly I see a lot of apprehension.

The good news is that Disney has proven Live Action Remakes to be big $$$. Maybe Netflix will up the funding and effort if they think they can get some nostalgia-driven audiences.

I hope ATLA fares better than Death Note and FMA. @_@



I thought it was confirmed that the live action show would be starting this year. So, there is no new information? Shame. Had there been more stuff perhaps ASN could have been saved. Anyway, I'd watch it if and when it comes out.

It was announced for 2020.  But we really haven't heard anything about it since its announcement.  I forget it's even A Thing until it shows up on my dash because someone reblogged the announcement post from 2018.

I hope we start getting more info on this project, cause Iíve heard next to nothing about it since the big announcement. Supposedly, theyíre shooting on location in Canada or whatever. Iíd like to know a bit more, that way I can get hyped.

May the souls of all the faithful departed
trough the mercy of God
rest in peace

See, I'm the opposite. I don't want to get hyped. That just leads to disappointment. I want them to spring this thing on us and for me to accidentally discover that it's amazing. I want to go in skeptical and ready to snark, and rediscover a genuine love for the story.
