    Yeah I think it is definitely Amon too, because the red circle on his mask may be a reference to the Egyptian God Amun Ra also known as Amon, who I believe is often drawn with that red circle above his head.

    Dom Reply:

    Very right you are! During the recent ComicCon the creators mentioned they used the new seasons of Avatar as a chance for them to flesh out their earlier ideas into reality. Naga was definitely one of them. Another, Bolin, who was originally going to be Toph character in ATLA!! (Yes, Toph was going to be a GUY at first!) Really glad they switched it out for the Toph we all know, but I’m kinda excited to see the comedic, goofy friend of the new Avatar. Hope this helps!

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    You are correct Drew, a bipedal Polar Bear dog was the original idea for the Appa character.
    And later on in the art book it is mentioned that we would see this design again, so this means they were thinking about Korra or at least another show since they started work on that book.

    I wonered how Amon and the Equalists learned how to Chi-Block?

    Is it possible that Amon could be Ty Lee’s apprentance?

    Reply

    Avatar of Dom

    Dom Reply:

    Wow great call it’s definitely a possibly! Because Ty Lee was last seen as a Kyoshi warrior (and with the “good guys”), I don’t see Amon being her direct apprentice. Here’s how I see it in my mind:

    The Kyoshi warriors of LoK teacher their pupils Chi-Blocking once Ty Lee joined. But one day one of the warriors becomes overwhelmed with jealousy of those who could bend, and defects to join the Equalists. Sort of like a Fallen Angel, she would a vital aspect of their efforts to capture/ eradicate the benders, for the Equalists now have an effective way to render benders defenseless.

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    Because I think a lot of us are not just fans of ATLA and it’s characters but rather a fan of the Avatar universe as a whole. As we see in ATLA the world has a massive history and so many opportunities for amazing stories
    -The First Avatar
    -A future Sozin’s comet
    -More Avatar’s
    -Life before the Avatar and the spirits involvement
    The list goes on.

    That is not to say that myself and others are not sad about Aang and co not playing a large role in Korra, but the show has to be good on its own and not “held up” by having Aang and co in it, and I think all Avatar fans should be willing to give Korra a chance especially since we all gave ATLA, a completely new idea when it first cam out, a chance. Korra will be about Korra and the new characters, For me it will be really interesting to get an in depth look into the mind of a new Avatar, A water tribe one, a female one. We get a look at how much the world has changed, we will see how Aang and Zuko have changed the world between the shows.

    IMO it all comes down to, if you are really a fan of Avatar, Avatar as a whole not just the show Avatar The Last Airbender, you will give Korra a chance and enjoy it. The same crew with new ideas working on it, Animation has advanced, the crew are more experienced.

    From what I have see from other people on here, I think most people would agree with what I said above.

    It is new Avatar, it has been 3 and will be 4 years by the time Korra starts, since we last had New Avatar on tv, what is not to like.

    Plus we will get more about Aang and co in the upcoming Comics, “The Promise”
