The news that's going around is that Netfix is trying to "Game of Thrones" it, where each character would be older, more violent and have passionate dramatic sexual relations with one another. And also be whiter.
Forgot to adress this, that "news" started from an unreliable site known for clickbatting articles (fandomwire), just looking at how other outlets like that reported Bryke leaving (lke Hollywood Reporter and Variety) not reporting on such thing was a big red flag.
"In terms of Paramount Plus, we have announced some new entertainment franchises that we’re bringing to Plus, the Godfather, SpongeBob, the Criminal Minds spinout," said Bakish.. "But, under the covers, our preview launch showed that there’s other franchises that work too that have potential, things like MTV’s reality show, The Challenge; things like Nick’s animated library series,Avatar, and all this is really the tip of the iceberg."
I have checked on mobile and a friend's pc , and the link which used to be it's page now doesn't work. Netflix can be odd so it may still be listed for some people though.
Also the 2020 release date had been removed a few months ago, not exactly sure what this user is referring to in that regard. Or maybe that was just on some apps, but I thought it had been all by a certain point. Again Netflix is odd.
This does not necessarily mean it is cancelled. But it is very notable they remove it now, despite it being clear for a while it was having trouble and would at least be delayed a while. If their intention was just to delay it some more I don't see why they couldn't just leave it up. Though who knows.
Yes!!!! And Magpie Games (lovely company) to boot!
The way that elemental martial arts are done in ATLA has existed in my imagination since childhood. Since my earliest days DMing — long before I saw ATLA — this kind of magic system was in the background of my setting (even if the rules didn’t allow us to actually play with it). This definitely opens some storytelling doors for me and my pals.
