The highly anticipated debut of Avatar: The Last Airbender — a live-action adaptation of the beloved Nickelodeon animated series — is finally here. Fans have been nervously awaiting the series since its first announcement over five (!) years ago.

After a massive flop live-action film from M. Night Shyamalan, the initial announcement in 2018 was met with lots of groans. However, as Mashable entertainment writer Belen Edwards put it, “in a delightful turn of events, the trailer actually shows some promise.” Despite the original series’ creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko pulling out of the new version, they still played a part in the creation.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream the new series and see if it can live up to the hype. After all, this new version has got some big shoes to fill.

What is the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender about?

Similar to the animated series of the early 2000s, Netflix’s live-action version focuses on a world whose people are capable of bending the elements. The only one able to master all four is known as the Avatar, who’s been absent for a century. During that time, the Fire Nation began its pursuit in conquering the world.

“But like a light in the darkness, hope springs forth when Aang, a young Air Nomad — and the last of his kind — reawakens to take his rightful place as the next Avatar,” the official Netflix writeup says. The series then follows the young airbender Aang alongside his new friends Katara and Sokka, Water Tribe siblings, as he attempts to save the world. “But with a driven Crown Prince Zuko determined to capture them, it won’t be an easy task. They’ll need the help of the many allies and colorful characters they meet along the way,” as per the official synopsis.

It’s “less a straightforward adaptation than it is a remix of its source material,” notes Mashable’s Belen Edwards in her review. The new series only consists of eight episodes, whereas the original contained 20 episodes in its first season (or “Book One”). Therefore, some scenes have been compressed, cut (but referenced), reimagined, or remixed, if you will. It’s also packed with Easter eggs and nods to the original animated series — including in the opening credits — which old school fans will appreciate.

Here’s the trailer, in case you missed it:

When does Avatar: The Last Airbender come out?

All the way back in 2018, which seems like a lifetime ago, Netflix announced the making of a live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon’s beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender. At long last, after years of patiently waiting, the series finally makes its debut on Feb. 22, 2024.

How to watch the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender

The live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender is a Netflix original series, meaning you’ll need a Netflix subscription to tune in. Like most streaming services, Netflix offers a few different options for signing up. Recently, they axed their cheapest ad-free subscription plan for good, which is hardly surprising (but still a bummer) given its unavailability on the sign-up page for a while. So, unless you’re grandfathered in, there are now only three different tiers to choose from.

The most affordable way to watch is with ads. If you can stand a few ad breaks during your binge-watching sessions, you’ll definitely save some money. It costs just $6.99 per month, as opposed to the $15.49 per month it’ll cost you to watch without ads via the Netflix Standard tier. This middle-of-the-road option nixes ads, but otherwise gives you the same specs as a viewer — 1080p resolution, two household devices, and two download devices. Ultimately, it seems like quite the price jump just to avoid a few ads during your streaming sessions, but to each their own.

Finally, there’s a third tier called Netflix Premium. It’ll run you $22.99 per month without ads and bumps up the specs to 4K (Ultra HD) + HDR quality, spatial audio, four household devices, and six download devices.
