The Australian Financial Reviews can exclusively reveal that the black and yellow canaries will be joining the green and white canaries as the animated shows of the coming year.
The canaries are set to join the green canary for the first time on Fox’s series The Legend of Korra, which will be set in the animated world of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
“We’re thrilled to be able to celebrate the new partnership with Fox and the Legend of Avatar and are looking forward to seeing them both continue to grow and thrive,” said Animatrix Australia CEO Tom Stenner.
Korra and her friends, Katara and Sokka, will be joined by the green (or red) canary in season four.
“With a history of being used as the emblem for diversity and inclusivity, it’s great to be a part of a network that will be so much more inclusive than ever before,” Stenman said.
In the same vein, Animatrice Australia CEO Ian Gaudron said the animated series of Avatar will be a showcase for the canary.
“This is an iconic symbol for Australia, which was established by the first Avatar,” Gaudroons said.
“The green canaries symbolises our diversity and equality and that’s why Animatrices is excited to partner with Fox on this exciting new animated series.”
The Legend of Zork will continue to serve as a key part of the Fox animated series, as the show was originally broadcast in Australia in 1993.
The Legend will air on Fox, and is a new addition to the network’s animated lineup.
