what could possibly go wrong
The difference is they’ve got the original creators instead of M Night and studio interference.
Live action would’ve been great if it were done right.
I'd rather them create a new series in the universe.
It's probably going to be jarring, not hearing the animated voice actors as the characters in this.
I'm sure they'll try to rectify the mistakes of the last adaptation, but I'm skeptical they can pull off a live-action portrayal of bending. Plus there's always the child actor problem.
There was also the slapstick cartoon comedy, another thing that's difficult to export.
So there's going to be at most like five minutes of Appa footage per episode?
Given how Nick tried to kill off Korra, a successful Netflix live series might be what gets another animated show greenlit. Korra always had to swim upstream with Nick.
I'm not sure how I feel about this.
Cover an elephant in sheep's wool - done!
Also, I feel the need to say that I’m pretty excited about a potentially popular Netflix show with an all-Asian cast because that’s still hard to come by. CRA has shown the way, but it’s probably easier to get a proven show greenlit.
If Dante Basco isn't cast as Zuko, I'm out.
They're going to give this a Game of Thrones treatment aren't they?
"Sir, why don't you just use a real flying bison?"
"Flying bison don't look like bison on film, so we use an elephant."
"What do you use if you just want to use an elephant?"
"Eh, usually we just tape a bunch of fire ferrets together."
I haven't seen anything on Netflix with as high as a production quality as GoT. I'd say it's higher than Syfy and CW for sure, but not quite at the HBO quality level. I would love if this series was HBO level quality, but if not, then I have to agree with the above and say, "don't touch it" because nothing you do is going to be an improvement.
Well according to Joel Kinnaman, Altered Carbon had a bigger budget than the first three seasons of GoT, and the production costs on original content for streaming platforms is rapidly increasing. Disney's live action Star Wars thing is supposed to have at least $100 million being pumped into it, and I recall reading Amazon's Lord of the Rings show is going to cost closer to $1 billion.
Between this and The Witcher, I'm sure Netflix is well aware that they'll have to spend a lot of money to rival the budgets that their competitors are putting up for their content.
I believe The Crown was more expensive than GoT, also.
I'm just glad this likely means the cartoon will be on Netflix rather than Nickelodeon's god awful proprietary service.
I got excited for a second, thinking they were doing a Legend of Korra show when I read this thread’s title. But I’ll still tune in for Avatar if it does well.
I'd love if "reimagining" the series was similar to what they're doing with ASOUE. Bryke were mostly making up ATLA as they were going along, but now with the story complete they can retell it and sow the seeds for later story bits earlier, such as the Order of the White Lotus.
If ATLA does well, maybe Netflix will eventually do a Legend of Korra live action series too.
This will be interesting for sure. I’m definitely hoping the cartoons will come to Netflix. Both airbender and korra.
Well I’ll be damned. I don’t know what to think about Live action, but I will watch it.
Child actors should be the least of their worries. Take Stranger Things for example.
