If you loved Aang in The Last Airbender: Legend of Aang, the animated series, you wouldn’t probably want to miss out on its sequel series, The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra. Set to air its premiere episode in mid-2012, but no specific date was given yet.
DiMartino and Konietzko are geniuses. Avatar is the only animated series I know I’ve truly enjoyed watching. It contains an amazing story line, interesting characters, and an over-all awesomeness rate.
So if you’re one of the many who’s been following this Nickelodeon series from the start, I know you’ll be in for another exciting ride in The Legend of Korra.
Here’s a short write-up on what to expect in this aniticipated series:
After the conclusion of the War, Aang and Zuko brought people from the four nations together and founded the United Republic, creating Republic City, a large “metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology” such as cars and motorcycles. Aang and Katara had three children, the youngest (and only Airbender) of which is Tenzin. Meanwhile, Toph Bei Fong traveled extensively to teach Metalbending. After Aang’s death, the next Avatar, Korra, was born to the Southern Water Tribe.
At the present time 70 years after the end of the War, Korra is a rebellious 17-year-old girl. As the Avatar, she has already mastered Waterbending, Earthbending and Firebending. She will learn Airbending from Aang andKatara’s son Tenzin. Tenzin himself is married; Pema is his wife. Jinora, a “bookworm”, and Ikki, a “motor-mouth”, are his daughters while Meelo, his youngest child, is his son.
The primary and only confirmed setting is Republic City. Anti-benders called “Equalists”, who oppose the art of bending, utilize techniques such as chi-blocking to further their goals of revolution, led by Amon. Korra must fight rampant crime and the anti-bender revolt, assisted by two brothers, Mako, a Firebender, and Bolin, an Earthbender. She is also joined by her animal guide, Naga, and the Metalbending police force of Republic City, who are led by Toph’s daughter.
And here’s the trailer:
