‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ is on Fire

Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender takes the number one ranking on the global streaming service, with 21.2 million views (so far!) this week alone. DEGANZ member Roseanne Liang is a series co-executive producer and one of four directors, with fans and critics alike agreeing that her episodes are some of the season’s best.

The series reimagines the acclaimed animated Nickelodeon series of the same name, literally bringing the characters and fantasy world to life. Young Aang, the Avatar and master of all four elements, must hone his powers to save the world rampaged by war at the hand of the ruthless Fire Nation.

Roseanne directed episodes five and six of the eight-part series, which explore the Spirit Realm and dive deeper into the character’s backstories. Episode six, Masks, is receiving particular approval for the way it balances the show’s extensive lore, character development, and action.

All episodes are available to stream on Netflix now.
