In the new video, Varney said she won’t be able to join the San Diego Comic-Con this year and reminded us that there is some exclusive Avatar Studios news to share.

Avatar Aang and his pals will be the focus of Avatar Studios’ first feature-length film.
It’s the first of three Nickelodeon movies that will take us back to the world of bending, and Lauren Montgomery, who previously worked on the original series, will return as director for this one. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if one of the additional two films focused on the Legend of Korra’s heroes to wrap up any loose ends from the sequel series.
