Founded in 2010 by Jae-myung Yu, Kwang-il Han and Seung-wook Lee, the name "Studio Mir" comes from the Soviet space station Mir, the first space station launched with the intention of having humans live in space for a long period of time before the International Space Station came into being. The project proved that collaboration can result in significant scientific breakthroughs and Yu wanted the animation studio to reflect that sentiment. Ultimately, he wanted Studio Mir to be a place where the best and most passionate animation artists could work together to produce greatness.



Due to Yu's work as the animation director for Avatar: The Last Airbender and his relationship with the creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, Studio Mir's first animation project was an enormous one: The Legend of Korra, the sequel series to Avatar. In an interview with Polygon, the directors cited their work on Avatar, which made it possible for the creators to place their trust in Studio Mir to work on The Legend of Korra. Aside from their animation, Studio Mir also worked on the pre-production and storyboarding stage with Han using real-life martial arts choreography to animate the fight scenes in The Legend of Korra and the combat scenes in Voltron. Although Avatar Studios has announced more animated series will emerge from the Avatar universe, including a new earth Avatar television series, they have not confirmed whether Studio Mir will participate in the production.
