Heard about this one on Collider.com. I’m a huge fan of Nickelodeon’s “The Last Air Bender” and not a fan of that horrendous movie adaptation by M. Knight Shamaylan. The animated series has way more heart and seemingly easy character development that it still blows my mind that M. Knight completely missed the mark on a story that was already to go. Tells you something about a directors ego doesn’t it? That being said the legend of the AVATAR lives on in Nickelodeon’s new series The Legend Of Korra. Here’s the synopsis:
Taking place 70 years after the events of “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” this story follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
I wish I could show you guys the supposed first episode, but apparently Viacom snatched that bad boy down as soon as it was leaked. So all we have is this trailer, which is still impressive, but being that I haven’t even seen the first episode is hardly a substitute, but it’ll have to do.
