“Avatar: the Last Airbender” fans unite! The creators of the original series are almost done with a new show set in that world.
“The Legend of Korra,” takes place 70 years after the original series, and will follow Korra, the new avatar.
For those of you who have not seen the original series, “Avatar: the Last Airbender” takes place in a China inspired fantasy world. The world is filled with hybrid animals, spirits and people who can control or “bend” one of the elements: fire, water, earth, or air.
The series fallows the avatar, a reincarnated individual who can control all the elements and is looked at as a peace keeper between the nations.
The new series will follow Korra in her quest to learn to control the final element of air. The setting will be in a new city that has a strong “anti-bending” movement. The world of Korra is one shaped by the events of the original.
“Legend of Korra” is coming out in the middle of this year on Nickelodeon and is set to run for 26 episodes.
All three seasons of the last series are currently available on DVD.
