Nickelodeon’s The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra Revealed
M. Night Shyamalan seemed to do his best with an attempt to completely destroy the popularity of Avatar: The Last Airbender, the popular cartoon his live-action movie was adapted from, but people have fortunately realized the two have very little in common. Now, SpeakEasy is reporting that another stab at expanding the Airbender franchise is being made, and it looks like it’s being done right this time.
The new animated series, The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra (which was first brought up last year), follows the adventures of Avatar Korra, which take place 70 years after Avatar: The Last Airbender. Korra is a “passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe.” She’s mastered Earth, Fire, and Water, and now seeks to become a master of Air. Her quest to control the final element has her traveling to Republic City, the “epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world.” With no common enemy to unite the people, they begin to turn on each other. The city is plagued by crime and an anti-bending revolution is underway. In a very smart move that links the two shows together, Korra’s airbending trainer is Aang’s son, Tenzin.
The hand-drawn animation style in the image above is a good hint that the style will match the original Airbender series and it seems like the creators are actually doing a good job of making Korra her own person with her own unique challenges, rather than simply rehashing old plotlines with a female Aang.
The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra is expected to begin airing on Nickelodeon in early 2012.
