    It's like Netflix craps out some new non-DreamWorks cartoon every year. I might give this a chance, though.

    Aren't the non-DreamWorks cartoons better than the Dreamworks cartoons?

    That is completely subjective and depends on your own opinion.

    Looks pretty cool :).

    (I'm guessing the Elvin assassin is the token girl).

    Considering that Avatar took itself too seriously for its own good, I don't know. I mean, among other things, that show tried too hard to be dark and edgy, and ultimately, it just didn't really know what it really wanted to do (and please don't ask me to elaborate; it's a long story).

    Personally, I think I'll need to look into it a bit more first.

    Well I'm gonna have to ask you to elaborate because I don't understand where this claim is coming from. Avatar had tons have light hearted moments, and I never considered it "dark or edgy". How's a show with Earthbending lemur's, Sokka getting drunk on cactus juice, and multiple blind jokes taking itself "too seriously"?

    For some reason when I first saw the image the first thing that came to my mind was Deltora Quest. Anyhow, I'll give this a shot. Could be good. At least visually if nothing else.

    After looking at the poster, I was already on board. I can't wait for the trailer.

    lol "The Ember Island Players" and the cactus juice moment want to have a word with you.
    Avatar certainly knew what to do with itself. It had some dark moments, yes, but it also had some light-hearted and outright humorous moments to balance.
    If you really believe what you're saying, then we must've watched different shows.

    I think this probably wasn't shopped at Nick because, at the moment, they're not really looking at something in the same vein as Avatar as this might be.

    I remember how they had the later seasons of Korra premier online rather then actually showing them on their channel.

    Besides, cable TV is slowly dying anyway.

    This sounds pretty cool. I really liked Avatar and the poster looks awesome, so I'll have to give this a shot whenever it comes out.

    It’s true, almost half of the TV animated series produced now are for SVOD services.

    Avatar had light hearted moments yes, but only as a prelude to the darker ones, such as Katara...

    seriously (and predictably) considering killing the person who killed her and Sokka's mom, and then this:


    It was clearly trying too hard, not only to be dark and edgy*, but also to appeal/relate to the viewers who has lost a loved one, especially because of violent circumstances, as well as trying to make the characters "realistic" / "flawed" (quotes because in this case, these are ultimately buzzwords that may not mean what some people think they mean). Also, for the record, I did watch the show; all three seasons of it. I'll be honest, that one part alone--in a way--made the show feel like it was more about Katara and her personal experiences (and the "agony" [another buzzword] of her losing her mother) than about Aang and his quest to become the Avatar, which was the real problem with the show (i.e., while Aang is technically the main character, it wasn't clear who's story it really is: Aang's or Katara's).

    With all this in mind, and going back to this new show, the question now is, what is going to make this next show any different? Are we to assume that this show "might" avoid the things Avatar ended up doing? That's all I'm saying. I've said this before, but being dark and edgy doesn't really make things better, nor does being realistic (necessarily).

    *The Ember Island Players episode may look light-hearted, but you have to look further into it: it's a self-parody in which the players themselves are telling a story they don't really know anything about in which they try to make the characters look as stupid as possible. In other words, it may look funny, but it really isn't.

    What studio is producing the show, I wonder. I wonder if it’s Netflix own in-house studio that’s been rumored to be existing.

    A new studio called Wonderstorm is producing it. It will also be tied in with a video game.
