Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko have announced that they are cutting ties with the Netflix live-action adaptation.
“Many of you have been asking me for updates about the ‘Avatar’ live-action Netflix series,” DiMartino wrote on his website.
“I can finally tell you that I am no longer involved with the project. In June of this year, after two years of development work, Bryan Konietzko and I made the difficult decision to leave the production,” he continued.
“I try to be like an Air Nomad and adapt. I do my best to go with the flow, no matter what obstacle is put in my way. But even an Air Nomad knows when it’s time to cut their losses and move on,” he ended his statement.
According to multiple reports, the show will still move forward without DiMartino and Knoietzko. Nickelodeon and Dan Lin are still attached to the show’s development.
