The last airbender just earned a Guinness World Record shoutout

Netflix began filming its adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender A while ago, and now the show seems to have stumbled into a wild accolade. Or rather, it seems that its production facility has been awarded a world record. The 2023 Guinness World Records will set the Netflix adaptation apart thanks to its filming location, and honestly, the award should only bode well for Aang.

The whole thing came to light when Pixomondo and William F. White International released a statement on their production phase for Avatar: The Last Airbender. It turns out the stage takes home a Guinness World Record, earning the title while production on the Netflix series was halted. The virtual production stage now holds the world record as the largest LED stage, as it uses the same real-time imaging tech shows The Mandalorian uses to create sets on set.

“When it comes to world visual and special effects records, we are faced with a dazzling array of new technological marvels,” Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said in a new statement.

“As fans of this latest generation of effects movies and TV shows, it’s exciting to recognize a place as magical as the Pixomondo and William F. White International stage. It’s almost literally a dream factory, where anything can be conjured up, from flying dragons to dramatic lunar landscapes. We are indebted to our Before and After consultant Ian Failes for guiding us through the exciting, dynamic and ever-changing landscape of VFX superlatives, and would like to thank Pixomondo and William F . Knows about her record-breaking success.”

For those who want more in-depth detail on stage, the production set measures 22,000 square feet at 80 feet x 27 feet. The stage is lined with 2,500 LED wall panels and 760 LED ceiling tiles. When these panels are synced and brought to life, the stage becomes a virtual production set that can bring any number of backdrops to life. Avatar: The Last Airbender uses this set to bring his Elemental Nations to life as realistically as possible. So if you’ve been worried about Netflix’s VFX vision, there’s no need!
