The upcoming Netflix adaption of Avatar: The Last Airbender has had the original series creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, step away from the project, as detailed by DiMartino in an open letter on his blog.

“Many of you have been asking me for updates about the Avatar live-action Netflix series. I can finally tell you that I am no longer involved with the project. In June of this year, after two years of development work, Bryan Konietzko and I made the difficult decision to leave the production.”
