Avatar: The Last Airbender creator announces his next project, Threadworlds
In advance of San Diego Comic-Con, Bryan Konietzko has announced his first project since the final season of The Legend of Korra. Threadworlds is the story of a young heroine named Nova and her "long origin story as scientific superhero," said Konietzko in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Konietzko and his collaborator Michael Dante DiMartino conceived of the very first details of Avatar: The Last Airbender in 2001 and pitched it to Nickelodeon several weeks later. The animating/drawing/writing duo was involved in producing three seasons of the show and four seasons of its sequel, Legend of Korra, until the finale of that series in December 2014. Thirteen years is a long time to be working in a single universe, and since the Avatar setting was also the duo's first success as sole creators/showrunners, fans have been on high alert for whatever Konietzko and DiMartino might do next.
