Avatar: The Last Airbender was a show that defined an era of animation and defined what could be accomplished within that world. Throughout its three seasons it originally aired on Nickelodeon, Avatar would win numerous awards–including Emmys and a Peabody and even have a sequel, Legend of Korra.
This week, some of the original cast members are coming together for a live stream to talk about the show, its influence on a generation of animators, and the “special place in animation history even 15 years later.”
Dante Basco, who provided the voice of Prince Zuko, announced on his Instagram that Zachary Elsen (Aang), Grey Griffin (Azula), Jack De Sena (Sokka), Jennie Kwan (Suki), Olivia Hack (Ty Lee), Cricket Leigh (Mai), and Michaela Murphy (Toph) have all been announced as participants, with “more to be revealed.”
It’s interesting to note that Mae Whitman (Katara) has not been announced, so it’s uncertain if she’ll show up for this, but for fans of the show paying $10 for the broadcast seems like a great deal. Fans can purchase tickets here at StageIt.
The show has been off the air for more than a decade, and while the Netflix adaptation has been put on on ice much like Aang himself, fans can still catch the original show as well as Korra on the streaming service right now.
