Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, the waterbender after Avatar Aang

Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra, the waterbender after Avatar Aang

With the success of the Avatar animated series, as well as M. Night Shyamalan’s motion picture The Last Airbender, it’s no wonder Nickelodeon wants to keep the train running for the American born anime series! Thankfully, we’ve finally got word of the next chapter in the franchise: The Legend of Korra. The latest Avatar, Korra is the successor to Aang. She is a teenage girl born to the Southern Water Tribe who has already mastered Waterbending, Earthbending, and Firebending. She needs only to learn Aang’s art of Airbending to evolve into a fully realized Avatar, learning from Tenzin, the son of Aang and Katara. The toon, from the same creators, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, is set to debut on Nick in 2011. Sounds like a fun new take on the series, but will it surpass the original?

The sequel series has been promoted in the Wall Street Journal with the following description:

The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra.

H-holy =X

did you say “learning from Tenzin, the son of Aang and Katara.” REALLY!? now im overly excited to see this! and i am quite surprised that they are making another one…i didnt think they would…the only thing about the 1st avatar is theay they left some unaswered questions that i would like to see…

omg avatar the last air bender is amazing… i just watched an episode… but another seiries! wow im so gonna watch this and aang and kataras son!?! wow im excited

Im excited about this new series yet i hope in this series they follow up definetly on the unanswered questons from the first ‘Air Bender.’ We still have no idea about Zukos mom, what happened with Azula and the other generals of the fire nation (did they ever rebel?), and where did aang go after the comet (back to the air temples or to the southern water tribe?) the creaters should have tacked on an Air Book and then started this new series because there was a lot of story to tell. But i optmistic and excited to see what happens with korra.
