  • When Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino just make the second Avatar franchise a bit darker, Nickelodean aired The Legend of Korra later in the day it got less viewers until Nickelodean eventually cancelled it. Than Bryan and Michael moved to Netflix and DreamWorks and they rebooted Voltron with the help of the animation studio, Studio Mir. Now I hear that Bryan and Michael are working on a new project.

    Can't Nickeloden sell the rights of the Avatar franchise to a company like Netflix, DreamWorks, Disney or Warner Bros.?

    • Nick could but is it in their best interest to do so. If they are still making money from it, they likely wouldn't.

    • It'd probably be for the best if they sold the franchise to Netflix.  The slapdash job they did of marketing LoK suggests that they don't really care all that much whether or not it's making them money (and, believe it or not, there are reasons why that might be the case; corporate logic is often not really the latter at all).  But even if a third show happened, there's no guarantee that they would sell it (because they'd want to hoard it like a franchise dragon, because see previous).

      Also: LoK wasn't cancelled.  It had a deliberately limited run from its inception.  Nickelodeon just switched it to online-only, starting with "Long Live the Queen."

    • Hey, actually, when I was in the My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic fandom I saw a lot of fanmade animations, even an episode. Well I'm not in the fandom since the very end of 2015, so I don't know if there are any new. So maybe, there could be a fan collaboration about animation making, if someone can and would like to (I don't say that there should be, it is just an idea). What do you think?

      If that's how you want to interpret "taking a break," which was how they put it.

    • I wish Dickelodeon Nickelodeon would sell the rights to the Avatar franchise to Netflix....whether or not they actually will is another matter entirely. I don't think Bryke will turn their backs on the franchise completely, but they did say that they both needed a break and wanted to work on separate projects. Maybe someday we'll see another animated story from this world, but for now, we'll just have to make due with the comics. Which don't get me wrong, as much as I'd like to see another animated show, I'm grateful that we still have something Avatar related still being released to us.
