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.
