Even though the social post does not disclose many details about the series. But the official news has given a hint about the plot. It suggests: “Currently we don’t know how far in the future this Avatar’s era will be set, but a very rough approximation based on previous Avatars is that if it’s set ~100 years after Korra’s time, it will be in the Avatar world’s equivalent of our world’s present day.”
The Avatar franchise will be very busy as there is an animated movie that has a scheduled release date of October 10, 2025, to hit the theatres. According to Avatar News, these two releases in the same year are “part of a much bigger plan”. The official news has also confirmed that the new series may come out in either November or December of 2025.
The animated film will focus on grown-up versions of Aang and his friends and their new journey. The film is also the very first project of the newly-formed Avatar Studios. At this moment, the studio is “working on multiple projects in parallel right now.”
