The Legend of Korra – The sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender

It’s long been known that the guys behind Avatar: The Last Airbender were working on a sequel to the series, one that is set in the same world but tells a different story.

The shroud of secrecy has been lifted, and that sequel has been announced with the working title: The Legend of Korra.

Nickelodeon executive Brown Johnson says the new series will focus on a teenage girl avatar named Korra. Brown describes her as hotheaded, independent and “ready to take on the world.”

Here’s a summary from the Wall Street Journal:

“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.”

Korra’s quest eventually leads her to Republic City – the epicenter of the world of “Avatar.” A metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology, the city is inhabited by people from all nations. Korra finds that Republic City suffers from rampant crime and is also dealing with an anti-bender revolt. Korra is tutored by Aang’s son, Tenzin, is the ways of airbending.

The series is set to premiere sometime in 2011!

    nice. i was hoping for more avatar. its nice that they expand the universe by adding new hero and all new characters, I do wish that there are some old character cameos… Aang is out of the count but not all are dead 😀

    Interesting. I don’t know though…I’m very attached to Aang and Co. It might do a number on me watching this. I’ll probably check it out anyway.

      I don’t mean to burst your bubble about Aang, but in the mythology of the show, the Avatar is reincarnated, so for Korra to exist, Aang must be dead.

    OMG!!!!!! I was hoping that they would make a new avatar, i hope its as good as the series was. I wanna see Aang’s son. I can’t wait for the new series to come out!

  6. Ray says:

    Korra? I don’t know. What if Aang and Katara are adults and the fire nation came back for revenge. That would be cool!

  7. Bill says:

    They’ve got to make the sequel to M. Night’s “Avatar, the Last Airbender” — movie was too good to just let it die out like that… Finish what you started people, don’t leave your fans hanging…

    I have been looking, checking all websites pretaining to the sequel and my one goal is to see this the first week it comes out. Too bad; Aang, Katara, Sukko, Zuko
    and his uncle can’t come back for the beginning of the new movie. That would be
    rightous!!

  9. It’s 2012, has the series started? It stinks not having cable.
