The four races appeared on Nickelodeon a long time ago, in 2005, and existed on the TV screens.
Then, when Avatar: The Last Airbender ended in 2008, everything changed and fans missed Aang, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, Toph, Appa and Momo.
But for Avatar lovers, there’s good news, as the cast is gathering for a special event.
Avatar: The last reunion of the Airbender cast to take place
What a way to ring in the new year for ATLA fans! Actor Dante Basco revealed that on January 9th there would be a virtual cast reunion, putting the voices behind some of the most beloved characters in the story together.
Basco, who is best known as Zuko in the original series for his voice and as General Iroh in The Legend of Korra, made sure to tag the entire gang, including Aang, in his Instagram post.
StageIt and Noveria Management are hosting the event and here are the cast members who will appear along with Basco: Grey Griffin (Azula), Michaela Murphy (Toph), Jack De Sena (Sokka), Jennie Kwan (Suki), Olivia Hack (Ty Lee), and Cricket Leigh (Mai).

More names will be revealed according to the event’s website, so fans can keep their fingers crossed for appearances by Mae Whitman (Katara) and the mysterious but famous Zach Tyler Eisen (Aang).
Eisen gave an interview with Ted Jones World in June 2020, his first in almost 10 years, and expressed that he did not always have the opportunity as a child voice actor to work in person with his ATLA co-stars. If he were to attend the reunion, it will be a real treat for fans, as he usually avoids the anniversary events of the series as well.
Here’s how to watch the cast reunion of ‘ATLA.’
The entire thing takes place at 3 p.m. on Jan. 9. From PST/6 p.m.
To buy tickets for $10 each and watch the livestream, fans can visit StageIt.
Merchandise and autographs, including printed pictures of the ATLA characters and video and audio recordings of the cast, are also available via Noveria.
Reunion news follows the disappointment of Netflix’ATLA’
“Avatar: The Last Airbender” creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko revealed in August 2020 that they will step away from the Netflix live-action film.
Originally released in 2018, the series has since stalled in development.
There are already reports that it might be put on hold.
With the Netflix adaptation, fans had been looking forward to seeing DiMartino and Konietzko’s vision come to life, but had to accept the result.
For the comic book series, the only way to keep up with past, current and future stories in the ATLA universe is to reach out.
The two co-creators keep stuff alive.
The animated versions of ATLA and The Legend of Korra by Nickelodeon also air on Netflix, offering millions of viewers and new fans.
Fans should follow DiMartino and Konietzko on Instagram to keep up with the world of Avatar.
On January 9, tune in to the cast reunion to see who turns up; it’s likely there will be some surprises.
