Michael Talked About Making Avatar

Michael and Bryan Konietzko are known for creating the animated TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

He said both of them were interested in Kung Fu, and they practiced yoga too. 

Michael said he had done mediation and had a keen interest in Buddhism

They brought their philosophy and interest to the table when creating the show.

He shared it with Bryan's sketch of a monkey robot and the kid with an arrow in his head. 

Bryan made a sketch that became Appa, and at that time, they did not have a story, and they did that because they found it interesting. 

Michael was really into the story of Shackelton, where guys were trapped in the South Pole back in the day. 

His idea combined with Bryan's ideas of having a significant revelation during a yoga class where some firepeople attacked another group of people on the South Pole. 

That is where the idea of the four elements of nature: fire, air, water, and earth came from. 


Her husband, Michael, is 49 years old

Michael Shared About The Origin Of The Avatar

Michael said the show started with making a pilot with Bryan Konietzko and some animators in Korea

They decided to make a series. At first, there were only 13 episodes. Later, they extended it to 20 and then to 61. 

For that series, they needed many talented people, so they went to those with whom they had worked. 

They worked with Aaron Ehasz, the co-executive producer and head writer of Avatar on Mission Hell. 

He said the first Avatar they did was Aang, as he was the main character, and after they came up with the idea of another nation, they knew that Aang would have a companion in his journey. 

Both of them loved the idea of having a brother-sister team alongside him. They wanted Katara to be the waterbender

He added it was satisfying to have female characters in the show so that fans could also connect to them. 

He added they had an equal ratio of men and women in the show, which does not exclude a whole audience segment. 

He added they wanted to have a guy from the audience's point of view who does not have any powers but hangs out with people with powers.
