Hello Genji Fans!

So what’s the latest and greatest with the Legend of Genji Development Team?

Writing Team:

  • The Writing Team has outlined Book 1 in detail, and we’re moving on to legit script-writing! 😍 This is a major accomplishment, and it’s amazing to see how far the story has come since Macky started it way back when.
  • SO MUCH RESEARCH! Lots of research has been done about the 1960s and 1970s. We’ve dived into everything from history to technology to cults and fashion. It’s been so cool to compare our different countries’ histories this way!
  • We have spent a substantial amount of time exploring Maya’s character, especially her history and life before the Dai Li. JJ and Macky worked quite a bit on her, and we’ve totally fallen in love with her.
  • We built a new Avatar-universe culture from the ground up — it was a fantastic opportunity to enhance our own world-building skills. Stay tuned to learn more about The Ocean Folk.
  • In addition to writing work, the fabulous Indi has been working hard creating a rich media culture for our story, including HILARIOUS pop culture references!

The Art Team

  • The Art Team welcomed three new members!!! Cameron, Juan, and Giovanni! All three bring a wealth of talent — from character design to 3D modeling to being FANTASTIC HUMAN BEINGS! Everyone is so thrilled to have them, and they’ve already done AMAZING work. Stay tuned to learn more about them in the coming days!
  • Cameron designed lovely 1960s-70s Earth Federation outfits and has played a huge role in outlining more Air Nation characters:
Earth Federation clothing designs by Cameron
Adorable airbending child design by Cameron
  • Juan has designed AMAZING animals and some awesome sandbender tribal clothing
Phoenix-Crane designed by Juan
Hotan tribal clothing designed by Juan
  • Giovanni is a baller and worked on sandbender tribal clothing as well!
Shan Shan tribal clothing designed by Giovanni
  • Macky has made progress on storyboarding the Kalsang story written by the one and only Caitlyn!
  • Macky held a livestream or two, and the videos will be uploaded at some point!

Social Media & Translations Team

  • Macky, Edu, and Indi worked hard to put together a quick Legend of Genji FAQ video out in March — Indi also translated the entire thing into Portuguese! You rock, girl!

    Ugh ever since some of them kidnapped Appa i am not sure how to feel about sandbenders, but their designs look freaking awesome. Can’t wait to see some bending action and Genji to start his training (if he ever does), especially airbending.
