First Legend of Korra Picture

The first official picture for Avatar The Legend of Korra and boy does it look freaking Awesome!

It’s now official! Reports are streaming in about the new Avatar Series, Avatar The Legend of Korra.

The show will premiere sometime next year in 2011

Here is what Nickelodeon said about the new series:

Nickelodeon said in a release that -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 teenage 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, in the ways of airbending.

Executives of the show explained Korras’ personality as “hot headed, independent, and ready to take on the world”

    for some reason i have a feeling that tenzin is gonna be like an old grandpa looking guy cus if he is aangs SON and theres been like a 70 year gap between the last series and now he might be like 50 years old or something. or maybe tenzin is aangs grandson or something

    Yeah, it all would depend on when exactly Aang had his son, Tenzin is a pretty cool name. My guess is Tenzin will be somewhere in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties.

    It is. ^^ IIRC, Tenzin is the current Dalai Lama’s given name. I really like the saga for being so topical–and at the same time, so timeless.

    I think that there will be a love connection between the two. Like Aang and Kathara. Also, they will have to explain how the Element is inherited. Is it a Father thing, Mother thing, or a random thing? It kills me. Like nobody ever, in the history of that world, had a child with someone from another nation. Really. Are we supposed to believe that? I mean before the war. Just look at all the Avatars BEFORE Aang. That’s a lotta old guys and gals.

    I know I will get flamed for saying this, but I am actually very disappointed.

    I wish they’d continue with the origial Gaang, instead of having a new… Avatar plus Aang’s son from what little information we know. I know there’s undoubtably going to be more characters, and cameos from old characters as well, but I am just… disappointed really. There’s so many things they could show us with the old series still, but they opt to go in with a clean slate, and… le sigh.

    I just don’t think they can hit again like they did with this cast of characters. The reason Sokka was so amazing was because of his voice actor in my opinion, and even if they have another comic relief guy, it just won’t be the same. The group composition at the end of Avatar the last airbender was perfect, with the six kids that saved the world, but now they’re going to have a hard time topping it, and I just hope that the initial group involves more than 2-3 kids, because more characters, as AltA has shown us, the better.

    Aang is roughly only 70 years old before he died apparently, maybe even younger. I wonder what happened to make him die so young, and if the series will revolve around the mystery of that. If it does, it could be interesting… Though from how they handled Zuko’s mother, I doubt we’ll ever be told what happens.

    Am I being overly critical, or am I justified in my disappointment?

    I think you are entited to your oppinion. And I agree with some statements,like myself,I want to know more about Zuko,and his mother. But I also really wanted to know what will happen after the war with Sozin was finished. So,in my oppinion,this looks like a good new cartoon to me,but they could have moved on later,and added some things about the former characters now. That’s what I think would be good.

    112 actually, and that is a technicality. He was frozen in ice for 100 years, so he didn’t age at all. He still dies at around 70 years old in this new series.

    But does Aang die? Or (like some people think other air nomads did before him) does he become “one with the air” and transition to another level of existence?

    Macky Reply:

    I have to agree… i think its not gonna be that interesting as the last series… after 70 years thats really young when you die… remember the crazy earth king (dont remember the name.. sorry) who exsisted even before aang was frozen for a hundred years?? and the whole concept of the story is just like 1-3 episodes in the previous series.. if i dont see the GaAng..And the cast is mature now… so its not as fun as the last episodes… i would be really disappointed, there are still too many questions to ask like..

    Are the airbenders really extinct??
    What happened to zuko when azula zapped him with lightning??

    Spoiler alert!! if you guys didnt know what happened to the “Phoenix King” and Aang.. here it is… Aang flew away and his scar in the back was pierced in a sharp rock which triggered the ever mighty avatar state, and after that Aang ENERGYBENDED the phoenix king and disabling his firebending…

    oh and.. has anybody thought that Zuko and Toft might end up together?? o.0

    Not really… if the new Avatar is a teenager in this new show, she has to be at least 13 years old, which means Aang dies aroun 69 or 70 years old. At least

    Dude, you’re so right! I thought that they were gonna continue, because there was Water book, Earth book, and Fire book, but no Air book; Yeah, there are no more Air benders besides Aang, but wouldn’t it be right to continue ONE MORE SEASON and label it “Air” , because this is still dealing with Aang, and Zuko and stuff… and maybe together they learn more about his (zuko’s) mother, and go on a quest to find her or something? That would be cooler, not this.. :/ Besides, I don’t even get what steampunk is…

    Ro Reply:

    yeah I wish we could find out 4 things: what happened to Azula after the big fight, what went on with Zuko on his quest to find his mother, whether Toph’s parents stopped searching for her and whether they still think she was “kidnapped by the avatar”.

    I really think that this is for the best, starting fresh.
    ATLA went out with a bang, for sure. The build-up and climax was perfect. There’s no arguing that. The characters were developed amazingly, and we all came to love them. I know I was drawn into the world so much that at times I had to remind myself “I can’t bend…I can’t bend…”

    That being said, how do you expand on perfection? The goal is to build UP. ATLA had climaxed. It was as perfect as a show could get. There was nowhere for it to go but down. That’s not a knock on the show, or on the creators. I think it’s a compliment. They had been just that successful.

    Sure, they could take the Gaang and throw them in some more crazy situations, have more plots, more conflicts. But what would it all amount to? They saved the world. Anything after that just seems so…trivial.
    We all wanted to find out the end relationships (of course Aang and Katara, Sokka and Suki, Toph and…who?), we were dying to finally reach the conclusion with Zuko’s mom, and we would have loved to see the new bad-ass Dragon Uncle’s Tea Shop (which I’m sure is what he would have called it).

    But the conflict would never be the same. The intensity of the show would be lost. Instead, the fans would be spending their time reminiscing, always comparing the new conflict with the dire situation of the Fire invasion. And any new conflict after that would just…fall short.

    This type of dying out occurs across all truly great works, from books to movies to tv shows. I know that at the end of the Ender’s Game series, I was completely infuriated at the cliff hangers. But the main conflict was resolved. The rest would just be mop-up story telling, tying up the loose ends.

    So I think this is for the best. Continue this wonderful universe they’ve created. Continue these mysterious and fantastic powers. But let the original characters have the rest they so rightly deserve.

    Shawn45 Reply:

    You’re right of course, I was being way too overly critical, and now that I have had time to think about it I have come to like the idea more and more. I’m still disappointed that we won’t follow the same kids this time around, but a whole new cast of interesting characters will be fine I suppose, just as long as they are interesting.

    On an unrelated note, I really hope they don’t tease with shippers this time around. I hated how every forum was devoted to the ships for to show like this, where that is one of the least important things to worry about.

    On a more related note, something you said is what concerns me the most:

    “But the conflict would never be the same. The intensity of the show would be lost. Instead, the fans would be spending their time reminiscing, always comparing the new conflict with the dire situation of the Fire invasion. And any new conflict after that would just…fall short.”

    How in the world are they going to top the threat of the Fire Nation? I don’t think it’ll be possible to be completely honest, but I’m holding my breath still.

    Quick Question, what do you mean by “Shippers”?

    Reply

    Shawn45 Reply:

    People who obsess with the relationships in the show to the point of insanity.

    Ok, that’s a harsh definition. Basically it’s people who watch the show for the romance and want a specific pairing to happen. For example, one of the biggest ships of the first series was Zutara, aka ZukoxKatara, and a lot of fans of this ship would argue on forums why it’s the only true pairing in the entire show and blah blah blah.

    It brings about huge flame wars, and is generally not very fun to get involved in.

    Jake Reply:

    I may come off as a “shipper,” but, I’m not. Really. I think relationships really show that a character is more than a generic, “I saved the world! Woo-hoo!” Kinda person, but that they have earthly desires too. The Avatar is not a God. It has earthly wants and desires just like us. Also, I would have loved to see what Zhuko did afterwards. His whole life seemed to be “the war” the war, the war… is he lost? Does he seek guidance? If so, where’d he get it from? Iro? Taugh? (sorry, bad speller of Chinese names) Aang? WHAT THE FREAKING HECK IS GOING ON! I’M SO CONFUSED!

    Lovezuko Reply:

    Although aang was a complex and deep character, let’s face it, out of the whole series, zuko was the one with the real depth, the real character. That is why we love zuko much. Now by the description of the new avatar, it seems as if her internal conflicts would resemble that of prince zukos. And honestly I love aang, but I think zuko could have carried the series by himself. (of course the other character made avatar the amazing series it was). All I’m saying is that the internal conflict can sometimes be just as interesting and intoxicating as the external conflict, as proven with zuko. So if she’s internally conflicted, like zuko, I think we have the making of a wonderful series.

    Yeah Zuko definitely had an awesome storyline, I didn’t think about it like that but if Korra has as deep a level as Zuko then the series is definitely going to be fantastic!

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    You cant just say Zuko was the only one with a deep character, Aang also does.

    Track His story, he was just a simple Air Nomad he Finds out he is the avatar and his whole life changes, His friends wont play with him, he is going to be sent away from his home. He never wanted to be the Avatar and he has to accept that.He also has Trouble with attachments, he is an Air nomad and was attached to the place he was born, he gets so angry when he loses people he loves,Eg Katara Appa, hIS people.THroughout the series he learns to be able to let go and be the AVatar.

    Yeah I also think different characters related to different people in different ways, Tai Li would probably relate to a certain group of people while Mai would relate to another group, the diversity of Characters I think is one of the major reasons Avatar was such an awesome show.

    I think it’s cool that Korra is totally rocking new-wave Water Tribe gear. Very slick stuff there. City-scape, awesome. And I mean that in the original sense of the word. Full of awe. Awe inspiring.

    Can’t wait for the new forums and some new pictures to discuss. These are exciting times, folks! It’s not usual to get a return to a world we love like this (unless that world is owned by George Lucas…) and to get the creators telling us that it will be connected to the old world? I’m really jonesing for the old voice actors to be brought back for the inevitable flashbacks. Or some actors who can pull off older sounding versions of the same.

    Exciting times…

    Itll be interesting to see the creators and animators set the bar even higher in the worlds of television and animation. I hope the track team will continue to provide engaging music and the animators will provide art similar to ATLA so not to throw ATLA fans off balance. I hope they intend for the new show to come out really soon in 2011, instead of making avatards wait for next summer!

    -But- I really want to watch as these guys raise the bar -again- for worldwide animation. Storytelling, art, soundtrack, voices actors… I am anxious to see if they will do this. I… don’t want them to repeat what went on before. I want them to exceed it. And you know? I think they have the capacity to do so.

    I’m one of those who are excited. the plot, character, concept are really cool!!
    is true there is possible negative points like Shawn45 and Ben mentioned.
    however, it depends from the interview and since are the creators creating the new series and from HD image, is with the same animators, and the co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos (he was the one who directed third seazon and sozin comet and did some episodes in the other 2 seasons), I trust them very heartly.
    usually what screws up when comes this stuff, when is made by a whole new people, team and the story created by other team, then would happen mess up.

    but since the creators said they gonna connect with the original that they themselfs did, this means they aren’t gonna mess up and from what I can tell, I’m sure the new series will be alright and other part…
    if you noticed in the other seasons, Water, Earth and Fire, were the seasons when Aang learns and missed to master, so I think this new series will sort represents Air, because since Aang already mastered Air when series started on Water, and this new character named Korra misses only the Airbending to master, and will be teached by Tenzin, Aang’s son (since Aang was the only airbender in his time before have a child (or children) in the whole world.
    so the creators thought over this, and didn’t want to look on the movie but focus only in the new series.
    I trust them, after all they are the Creators of Avatar World. =)

    i am so excited for this new series, though i’m sad to see the original gAang go. i love the series to death and i never get bored of any of the episodes. all the concepts, the characters, the music, the development, and sooo much more. i got on the ATLA train really late- i started watching it in May of 2009. i used to think ‘oh great just another dumb kids cartoon’ but now i cant stop watching it, ever since my dad got the first four episodes of avatar from blockbuster. we watched them and i was immediately hooked.

    a few weeks later, i saw the whole season three finale and i saw zuko with his totally awesome floppy hair totally kicking azula’s butt WITH KATARA, and i was like what the heck when did he join the gAang, and my mouth felt like it would never close! i scoured the web for ages, trying to find a website where i could catch up on the episodes. FINALLY i found avatarchapters, with links to megavideo, so I watched them all within a week.

    Ever since then I’ve been trying to catch all the episodes on nicktoons when they come on, but sometimes my siblings insist an watching other things, even though they love the show.

    Avatar has become my lifeline through the bad times and the good, and I constantly fantasize about becoming part of their world. I know that CAN’T be healthy, but at this point I really don’t care. I watch Avatar, I draw Avatar, I fantasize about Avatar, I read Avatar, I dream about Avatar, and I listen to Avatar. I love the show and I’ll never stop watching it.

    WEEELLLLLL, now that I’ve told you my whole life story, i guess i’ll share why I LOVE THE IDEA OF LEGEND OF KORRA!!! I think it would be AWESOME to see the next Avatar in action. And I think it’s BEAST that the next Avatar is a girl, because we haven’t had one since Kyoshi. ATLoK should be AMAZING, and I hope to see the original characters sometime in the show. I can’t wait for 2011. I really hope they tie up the loose ends from the original series, like how the Airbenders repopulated, and Zuko’s journey to find his mother. ORRR when she comes back. If they’re not gonna do that in the original series, they should show a flashback or backstory or SOMETHING. OOORRRR they could make an animated movie that bridges between ATLA and ATLoK.

    Well, that’s all I have to say. I just had a random spaz, i guess. i guess i just needed to let it all out or somethin. OH WELLZ!!!!

    I am so hyped for this show I have been a fan of the series since then very begining and even went to see the the last air bender twice just to watch the live action bender, I’m sure the creators will do fine with many of th fans questions and I honestly believe there’s a possibility of zuko own a tea shop in this new city in which we may hear the story about his mother and how everything went down when he went to look for her, honestly that cliff hanger was the only thing I have ever hated about the series, but. With this I have hope I also think the a bridge movie in highly possibe, and also believ this mini series will grow into more from the success of the name story and the fact we don’t have a certain Indian director ruin the iconic image of something great and turning it into a hollywood abmoination, like what happened to DB evoultion, I just hope before we have another green lit movie I has a good name attached. Revamp th only way. Anyway totally pyched to return to the avatar universe and am completely ready for it.

    I guess I’ll have to edit my day dream to put the world in a more late 20th century state. With powerful business forces taking hold of the world and screwing up nature like never before. With the spirits a pale shadow of their former selves, and benders scarce enough for people to think they no longer exist, if they ever did. Into this world, an Avatar would be like Luke Skywalker. He used a lightsaber and the force, but never did stop carrying a blaster, just in case. His powers were revealed through trial and error.

    Actually, dang, I’d love to see an eventual update like that. Kind of a reverse of the Jim Butcher Codex Alera series (check it out! it’s great and very like Avatar’s benders) where all people have abilities to tap and only one boy does not, but uses his head and his will to overcome such “handicaps”. It would be great to have just a group of outcast benders one day.

    Gotta avoid the X-Men parallel though. Not too hard. Since Benders look normal, and they could keep it a secret, well for a while anyway. Like Zuko and Ang, the benders would have to have good hand to hand or weapons skills. Maybe they could use the styles their bending moves are based on.

    what’s the new avatar wearing? clothes, I still see remains of tradional clothes from water tribe…
    I don’t see why make you think like that, if wasn’t the same team and the original creators I would understand.
    but since is the original creators, same team animation and soundtrack, I don’t see why the pessimism…
    I understand that people reaction is all excited and maybe annoy you being way too optimistic and stuff but are nervous about the relation to the plot with original series, but since creators said it gonna have relation (they didn’t mention how much, but I guess what must be enough being around 12 episodes in mini-series) and guess it gonna have explaination on the metropolis, and from plot summary, is only 1 place is like this in avatar world and that’s Republic City, so therefore it won’t have much change, it didn’t said in WHOLE AVATAR WORLD, just a city, you’re saying as if is in the whole world, when isn’t, besides as far I remember, in the original series, a guy was developing this kind of technology for the fire nation, right? in episode 17 Northern Air Temple Book 1: Water. so isn’t really that suprising to make that sort of reaction.

    what up with the clothes??.. what happened after 70 years?? im sure that it changed… and the new avatar should have been more feminine.. when i first read about the legend of korra i instantly thought about a very hot and sexy woman which was alot like I Tai Lee a.k.a. circus freak but a real bad ass… i really am not gonna be that hooked to this season.. and there is a curse that if you make a saga after a great movie,series.. it will not be as good as the first.. but it doesnt apply all the time.. like Toy Story 3.. that was really great..

    depends.
    but since is:
    - are the co-creators (they even gonna write each episode)
    - same team animation
    - same soundtrack team
    - same team of voice acting

    what to complain? and to worry?
    if was the all new like was the movie, then I would understand the worry.
    one thing is true, this one won’t so good as was the original, it will be be good, but not so good as the original, and this is more than enouch.

    as for the “should been more femenine” and “when I first read about(…)a very hot and sexy woman which was alot like Tai Lee…”
    is normal guys would prefer more like this, also girls in a sense (some for feminism, woman power or fashionable,etc – there many reasons -.-”)
    but to me I’m very okay with it, not because I generally admire female characters like this, but from her discription in personality wise and the fact she has mastered Water, Earth and Fire, or so to say not only the arts but also its discipline.
    mastering the elements and the “Avatar State” also molds personality and lifestyle of the avatar and its surroundings, you can tell mostly when Aang was learning his opposite element, I guess is the opposite element to the original avatar element has more effect on them in personality.

    I can’t believe it! They’re taking away AANG??? and KATARA????? WHAT?????? NOOOOOOOOOO!

    I tottaly except the idea of Korra and stuff, but could they at least have like, Aang and Katara and stuff?

    Who here has ever seen Ember Island Players? (book 3, chapter 17 i think)

    Katara said she didnt know when the right time was for a relationship. What about an episode to confirm her and Aang’s relationship?

    I say they should have a whole episode or two to tie up loose ends and show some stuff before Korra stuff comes along.

    What happened to Toph? did she ever get to see her parents? and what about Aang dying (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! ;( !!!!)?

    overall, I can’t be complaining. At least they ARE making a sort of sequal. So, yea.

    I think it would have been better if they had just contiuned from the end of book three or just a few years after, because I doubt that the world would just suddenly become peaceful, as I think there would be people in the fire nation that would still think that ozai was right.

    but still Aang rocks.

    But i cant believe that aang is gonna grow up. that ruins me -_-

    lets hope korra is like 12 years old or something. because its more cute when they are kids xD

    i have to admit i’m actually disappointed with them bringing out a new one set SO much farther in the future. with a teenage avatar that can only mean that our beloved aang is dead T_T, which means more then likely Zuko is in his last years of life as with sokka and tuf (screw katara she was annoying)

    sequels are almost never as good as the original and with out the original crew which made avatar such a funny and great show i don’t know if this one will do as well. specially if the rumors are true and she already has mastered 3 of the 4 elements.

    It’s hard to let go of the characters. They are not simply characters, they’re people we know and have been with for very long time. I always believed that, even though the cartoon characters are not solid, existing in our earthly realm, they are as real to me as my own mother. If my mother were to leave my life, but still exist in my heart, i’d be happy and sad at the same time.
    What i’m trying to say is: It’s just temporary folks. I bet you that when Korra comes, kicking bad guys asses and saving the day, we’re all gonna love her.
    And just so you know, i JUST finished the series, like, 15 minutes ago. Watched the whole thing in a weekend’s time. But i love Aang, Katara, Toph, Sokka, Momo, Appa, Suki, Zuko, Iroh, Bumi and all the characters just the same as you all. So, we’ll miss them, fall in love with the Korra gang and, hey! If we feel like seeing Aang blasting a door, Katara Freezing people up, Sokka making a joke or Toph doing some badass Earth Bending, just watch the whole thing again! You have many weekend’s in your life, i’msure you can spare one to see some good ol’ friend :)

    I totally get it. I make cartoon characters (that you might never get to see on TV) as well as watch em on TV. These things are always temporary. When it’s over, it’s like knowing that one of you pals is going and not coming back. The old episodes become like home movies you can watch to remember those times. At least this is true with the really special shows. I’m especially fond of Toph. I’d love to have a niece or daughter like her. And I’d totally understand her and give her a break. If I was a twelve or thirteen year old cartoon boy, that kid would have a boyfriend.

    I would want to know:

    1. Did Aang and Katara marry?
    2. Did Zuko ever find his mother?
    3. Did Azula join her father in prison?
    4. Does Appa and Momo ever find mates?
    5. Does Sokka ever get his “space sword” back?
    6. Does Toph reconcile with her family?
    7. How does Aang die?

    If they answer these questions in the new series, either in flashback or some other creative way, that would be great.

    I look forward to a new Avatar offering…I have faith that their talent and creativity will inspire us all once again.

    Aang died earlier than other Avatars because he was trapped in an ice-berg for so long which shortened his life-span.

    The other questions will hopefully be answered in flashbacks like you said.

    Dace Reply:

    Diana- these are great questions! I hope they will be answered. Until I see the series, though, I totally disagree that the reasoning behind Aang dying at 82 (or 182, however you want to see it) would be because he was trapped in an iceburg. Ice has the opposite effect. It preserves. So, if anything, he had a long life. The average age of a man is around 76, so 82 is doing pretty good.
    The great thing about the first series was how the writers were able to do so many different backstories to help explain the past. I am interested in knowing if the new Avatar (Korra) is somehow related to Korin, the water bending Avatar that Aang spoke with while on the Lionturtle.

    Frankly I am extremely excited for the new series, but at the same time don’t want to let go of the gAang. Therefore I propose they create A:TLoK and afterwards go back to filling to 70 year time gap between the 2 productions. If this doesn’t work then they (bryke and original ppl, NOT m night) should create a full length animated movie filling the gap and answering all the questions.

    I believe that the writers will resolve most of the questions from ATLA in ATLoK. There were many flashbacks to Aang’s past life as Roku, and I think ATLoK will feature much of the same. That said, I am disappointed that the continuing story is about a new avatar; I can’t imagine any fan of the orginal show could grow as attached to the new storyline and characters (in the limited 12 episode season that has been promised to ATLoK) as to ATLA.

    Well then you need to ask would it have been as good as it was on another channel. The humour certainly might not have been as good, for a kids show the fight scenes are amazing and there are times when they get injured, obviously no blood seen but no kids channel will allow that.
    I think Avatar showed Nick what could be done, everything does not have to be spongebob, there can be themes and action too. I don’t think there was anything that could have been done to Avatar by any network to make it any more mature/less kiddy that would not have made it a show not for kids
    Personally I think if it was on Cartoon network we would never have seen the end of the show, it would have been cancelled or something.

    Nick know now how to handle Avatar and the creators know exactly how far they can go, So I expect Korra to be fantastic start to finish.
