The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra

Wait! It's not out yet.

Legend of Korra

From Wiki-
The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra (originally titled Avatar: The Legend of Korra) is an upcoming American animated television series that is expected to air on Nickelodeon in mid-2012.[1] The series is a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, which aired on the same network from 2005 to 2008, and may run for 26 episodes.[2] It will take place in the same fictional universe as the original show, whose societies include a multitude of ethnic elements derived from Indian, East Asian, and Inuit cultures. In it some people have the psychokinetic ability known as 'bending', by which to control and manipulate either water, earth, fire, or air. A single being known as the 'Avatar', described as the 'physical embodiment of the world's spirit', has the power to bend all four elements and is responsible for maintaining both the balance of nature and peace between the world's four great nations. Korra, protagonist of the new series, is the next incarnation of the Avatar after Aang of the original series.[3] Set at least seventy years after the defeat of Phoenix King Ozai and Princess Azula in the four-part finale of the original show, creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko[4] plan to follow Korra as she learns Airbending, having mastered the other three elements, while facing an anti-bender revolution


So, set 70 years after the first series.

The series will focus on Korra, a teenage female from the Southern Water Tribe and the current incarnation of the Avatar, who, according to the president of Nickelodeon, will be "hotheaded, independent, and ready to take on the world"[1]. She has already mastered Water, Earth, and Fire, but has yet to master Air.[3] The character was partly inspired by Avatar Kyoshi of the original series, whom the creators say was well-liked among fans. To avoid repetition of Aang's adventures, the show will be set in a single place, called Republic City, a steam-punk metropolis where benders and non-benders, as well as people of all nations, live. Republic City was founded by Aang and Zuko after the 100-year world war that was at the center of the original series. The city's police are Metalbenders (a subset of Earthbenders), taught their art by Toph Bei Fong of the original series, and led by her daughter. The city's most popular sport is pro-bending, which involves teams of benders that must fight each other. The main conflict of the first season will revolve around a group of anti-benders, called the Equalists, who use chi-blocking to subdue their enemies.


Sweet, steampunk. :grin:

In the show, Korra will learn Airbending from Tenzin, youngest child of Aang and Katara, and will contend with an anti-bender revolution in Republic City.


Youngest.. as in they had more than one. I wanna see, damnit!

Tenzin (J. K. Simmons)[15] is Korra's airbending master. He is the youngest child and only airbender of Aang and Katara's three children, and has three children himself, all airbenders


And now for some pictures and animations!

Sweet. Though I find the description of the main character a tad cliché for female protagonists these days.

Very much looking forward to this show, the first series was some of the best animation ever, definitely some of the best American animation. Solid but simple plot, great characters, and awesome fight scenes...what more could you want? My wife has been talking about the new show for the better part of a year, too bad we'll have to wait for episodes to go online :(

A little sad about the steam punk thing, it seems pretty trendy lately. I'll deal :popcorn:

Ah, yeah! Saw a panel video, a while ago, from some convention with the creators and the wiki. Awesome! The main character is finally tough. Aang was funny, and The Last Airbender was funny as hell, but this new approach is very welcome. Also, I think while Korra is not particularly androgynous, she appears to be ripped. Kick-ass. 8-)

If it's anywhere near as good as the original series, I'll be watching it every week. Hopefully this will restore some of the good will that was completely obliterated by that abortion of a movie by M. Night Shyamalan...

Same here. If I watched it before the wife gets home, I'd be a dead duck.
