Netflix also released the first official teaser for the live-action series, which you can watch above. Though it doesn’t include any actual footage, it’s still likely to leave longtime fans with nostalgia-induced chills

Described as an “authentic adaptation” of the original animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in a mystical world where people can manipulate (aka “bend”) the elements. The story centers around 12-year-old Aang, who awakens from an icy slumber to discover that he is now the last living airbender. Adventures ensue.

Avatar: The Last Airbender stars Gordon Cormier as Aang, Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko, Kiawentiio as Katar and Ian Ousley as Sokka. Albert Kim serves as showrunner, executive-producing alongside Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore and Michael Goi.

The original animated Avatar series aired for three seasons (2005–2008), followed by spinoff series The Legend of Korra, which ran for four seasons (2012–2014).
