Funimation’s upcoming animated feature The Legend of Korra is set to break box office records as it approaches its theatrical release on December 18.
The anime, which has a budget of $75 million, has already broken the $100 million mark in North America.
The film will also top the $150 million mark internationally, according to The Wrap.
While many anime franchises have yet to break the $200 million mark, Avatar: The Last Airbender broke the $300 million mark domestically.
The movie, which is currently in production in Korea, has earned over $3 billion worldwide.
The Legend will be one of the top animated films of 2017, according Toei Animation president Kenji Kamiyama.
Funimation president and CEO Toshihiro Kondo also commented on the film, stating that it is a new genre for the company.
“It’s the first time that we’ve ever worked on a project as big as this.
We’re going to do our best to make it the biggest anime film ever made,” he said.
The story follows the titular Avatar who, after being sent to the Earth Kingdom to investigate a mysterious event, begins a quest to find his parents, the Fire Lord Asami and his wife, Tenzin.
Funeral for Korra will be based on the book series by Margaret Atwood.
