The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra Trailer
It’s no secret that M.Night Shyamalan’s poorly received take on Avatar: The Last Airbender has killed all the buzz it originally managed to drum up for the franchise, and the only people still interested in a new addition to the franchise are the loyal fans who got started on the series through the books and the cartoon – the same people who would have followed the series even without the Hollywood buzz, and the exact same people who felt betrayed by the sub par quality of the live action adaptation.
The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra aims to reward the fans who stayed, and also to remind the ones who left of what they will miss, and let’s not forget that it may attract new fans to the series. Legend of Korra is a direct sequel to the legend of Aang, and follows the adventures of Korra, a teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe who is the current incarnation of the Avatar. This version of the avatar will be different from Aang, as Korra will be “hotheaded, independent, and ready to take on the world.” The series will start with Korra already a master of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water, but she has yet to learn Air (again, in direct contrast with Aang, who started with mastery over Air instead of the other elements).
