The original creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender have left the show. As a matter of fact, Both Michael Dante Di Martino and Bryan Konietzko decided to quit the show in June. They were working on this project for two years. Was it just the so-called creative differences or there is something fishy beyond this rebuff. 

Apparently, it seems that it was a matter of productive issues. According to DiMartino, whatever Netflix is presenting on the screen is not the thing that creators envision while creating the show.

Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Emmy- winner animated TV series ran for three seasons from 2005 to 2008. It is the tale of Aang, who struggled to combat the Fire Nation and brought peace via empowering four elements. This high rated animated show gathered over 5 million viewers. Moreover, the show gained extra fame through its Netflix release.

In 2018, Netflix announced a live-action TV series adapted from the animation. The original creators from the animated productions were selected for this live-action presentation. Everything went smooth, but recently both the creators bid goodbye to this Netflix project.

In fact, Di Martino posted an open letter on his personal website with an explanation for this refusal. Primarily, Netflix promised to honour the ingenious talent of both the creators. Later, the partnership failed to sprout. Both DiMartino and Konietzko realized that things are not going according to their plans. Therefore, they decided to leave the project. Konietzko’s Instagram, post reflects his disappointment. According to him, he experienced a displeasing involvement in Netflix partnership.
