Netflix showrunner reacts to 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' creators exit

For showrunner Albert Kim, the exit of Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the original creators of hit Avatar: The Last Airbender, was a disappointment.

In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, the producer spoke about their departure from the Netflix live-action series.

"They were still involved when I first joined. They had been working on it for a while on their own, but then I came on board, so we overlapped for a little bit. I got the chance to talk to them a lot about the show."

He continued, "Everything from their vision and what I thought should be done to me geeking out about being able to talk to the original creators. So, we worked together for a little while, and then they decided they needed to leave, and that was a personal decision on their part."

However, Albert admitted, "It did bum me out, because I enjoyed working with them and I obviously would have loved to have kept on doing that. But they went through their own process, which started before I was part of the project."

"And it was a personal decision for them to leave. We just kept on going as best we could without them."

In the meantime, Avatar: The Last Airbender is streaming on Netflix.
