By Whitney Milam HollywoodNews.com: Nickelodeon recently announced that “The Legend of Korra”, a spin-off to “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, the animated series on which M.

“The Last Airbender” will have a sequel in 2011 … just not on the big screen

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Contrary to popular belief, M. Night Shyamalan’s live-action adaptation of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” did not completely destroy the franchise. But it perhaps contributed to a decision by Nickelodeon to send “Airbender” back to its animated roots. The television network announced today that a sequel to “Last Airbender”[...]

Moviegoers Turn Their Backs on “The Last Airbender”

Will M. Night be allowed to make more “Airbender” films?

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: M. Night Shyamalan’s live-action adaptation of the animated hit “Avatar: The Last Airbender” stumbled out of the gate yesterday, receiving harsh reviews from the critical community.
