From Aang to Fear.
Following last year’s announcement that a trio of Avatar films were in development, we may have received our first indication of when to expect the second to be released.
As reported by Avatar News, sources claim that a film centered around the Fire Lord Zuko is being planned, with a tentative release window of 2026. The three films will be treated as standalone stories as opposed to an ongoing trilogy, and as such, the possibility remains that their production order could be changed if necessary. The first film to focus on Aang and his team has been set for an October 2025 release date, which reasonably places the subsequent Zuko flick in fall 2026.
No further details have been revealed at this point, leaving room for speculation as to when this film might be set and what kind of mission the main character might be on. There’s no shortage of existing material in the Avatar canon to draw from, including The Search graphic novel trilogy, in which Zuko enlisted the help of Team Avatar to uncover his mother’s mystery.
Whether it will unlock those narrative resources or take them in an entirely new direction is entirely unknown, but as Avatar News noted, Dante Basco’s return as the voice of the Fire Lord is very likely. This comes after previous reports that Basco is reprising the role as part of the aforementioned 2025 predecessor.
Considering that release date is still some time away, there will be countless other twists and turns before we get official confirmation from either Nickelodeon or Paramount. In the meantime, it’s certainly exciting to think about exactly what direction they might take with these upcoming films.
