Avatar: The Last Airbender, a million-dollar live-action series, earns Guinness World Records

Since the introduction of the new Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series by the original creators and the recent release of a solid-looking cast, there has been a lot of buzz about it.

First, it’s confirm that the 8-episode first season cost $120 million with more than $15 million per episode. It was even stated that Netflix’s live-action ATLA is a “hundred million dollar show” in an interview.

The other buzz is about how the adaptation is going into real life. Because if you are already familiar with the animated plot of Avatar, the scenes, costumes, and characters are breathtaking.

Fortunately, the Guinness World Record snoozed the buzz out as the series just earned a record title well before Avatar even debuts.

Avatar is the biggest LED stage in the world

The Avatar: The Last Airbender’s stage, designed by Pixomondo, was first billed as “one of the largest in North America.”

But now Guinness World Records has certified that it is the world’s biggest LED stage.

“When it comes to world records in the realm of visual and special effects, we’re face with a dazzling array of new technological wonders to consider,”

Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records

Moreover, the stage set is also recognized as magical as the directors described having the latest generation of effects-led. “It’s almost literally a dream factory where anything can be conjured up, from flying dragons to dramatic moonscapes.”

Glenday also thanked other people involved in the recognition process, saying,

“We’re indebted to our consultant, Ian Failes of before and afters, for guiding us through the exciting, dynamic. And ever-changing landscape of VFX superlatives, and would like to congratulate Pixomondo and William F. White on their record-breaking success.” 

The overall production measures

The complete production set is about 22,000 square feet (80 feet × 27 feet). It’s with 2,500 LED wall panels and 760 LED ceiling tiles along the stage.

Furthermore, when these panels sync up and come to life, the stage becomes a full virtual production set capable of displaying an unlimited number of backgrounds.

Thus, Avatar: The Last Airbender employs this set to bring the major elemental kingdoms. From the original anime series to life in the most realistic manner possible.

So, if you’re concerned about Netflix’s VFX vision falling short of your expectations, this may be a terrific way to rekindle your enthusiasm for the show!
