    That is alot of talent, Daniel Dae Kim is awesome loved him in Lost.

    JK Simmons as Tenzin confuses me too, I think the voice will suit him just hard to picture it now.

    Loving Seychelle Gabrielle being involved, nice to see someone from the movie involved.

    Lance hendrickson always does great work, look forward to hearing that voice.

    Dont know much about the others.

    Having a character named Mako is an awesome tribute.

    Seychelle made a beautiful Yue.

    As for Tenzin, he might be middle aged and not a kid, so that could make sense. I have to laugh. After you announced it, a few others tried to make it look like they discovered it. In the words of Azula. “Dumb-Dumbs” You beat them to it. Nyah nyah. LOL

    But of course I want to know where Dante Basco, Rob Paulsen, and Dee Baker fit into this. But will they tell us?? No…. I might have to send them a threatening (ie: No chocolate bunnies for them) email if they don’t tell us.

    I heard JK Simmions’ voicework and I have to say: A gruffy, angry man would not suit an air nomad. Mike and Brian, you better haven a good excuse for that one. I also heard Seychelle, and I think she’s going to do great. So much potential.

    Good things come to those who wait? Maybe it’s also being pushed back so that it will be cast all over the world and not just in the USA. That’s my hope because so many of you aren’t in the states. You’re as hardcore a fan as anyone else. I’m hoping on hope that they will broadcast it the same time. What if we asked them to? Think that would work?

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    I am pretty sure the date has been pushed back so that they can air all 26 episodes in a row and not a big break between 12 and the other 14.

    I hope they air it everywhere at once for their own sake in terms of ratings.But knowing Nick and most animated tv shows the USA will get it first followed closely by Canada and NA.
    Who knows when europe and the rest of the world will get it.
    I hope they get the airing correct.

    This might just be a shot in the dark, but what if we all compiled a letter to the execs. at Nick asking them if they could broadcast it worldwide. It wouldn’t hurt anything. Someone could compile the letter and we could all put our names down on it. It’s worth a try?

    I wouldn’t say that is 100% confirmed, IMDB is not the best source, I want to know where they found it out from.
    Because I cant find that on anywhere other than IMDB.

    Not Confirmed yet

    Though if it is it is slightly concerning that there are so many characters for such a small series, 26 episode and we are at around 14 VA confirmed if this is true.

    Yeah usually IMDB is a good source because they go through a verification check of their information.

    Usually they are better than most sources, but in this case you’re right they don’t have any back-up information.

    But the source is fairly credible although we don’t know who those characters are, they might even be just 1-episode characters if you know what I mean.

    Yeah probably some 1 shot characters, but the way they reported alot if them in a cast announcement with the main cast is a bit weird, Korra ,Tenzin, loads of one shotters.

    A bit weird.

    IMDB need to put up a source for that info.

    You know how cool it would be to be the next avatar and you could go into different worlds?!!?! Ahem. . . Sorry got excited, but anyhow, with the series comin a lil later, like next year, I would really hope the aang gang could leave like somethin legendary to korra. Like what if like katara’s necklace was a way to unlock a hidden power within her, or sokka’s booming was bendable in a way somethin she could take with her and still have the original characters thru the series

    I read on IMDb that the character ‘Bolin’ played by P.J. Byrne will be a main character. Considering that some of the characters that were released probably aren’t main characters, i thought that was some news. Even though IMDb isn’t the ‘best’ resource they could be right! But I’m gonna believe it until they’re proven wrong!! =D

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    NO you are correct PJ Byrne is confirmed to be playing Bolin, that is all we know. He may or may not be a main character. He was actually confirmed in the same post that confirmed all the above characters but the post was then updated after this new post went up.

    IMDB as you say is not a reliable source, they have 3 other characters: Pema, Skoochy and Ikki which are not confirmed as of yet.

    Okay so, I know Aang and Katara hook-up, they got busy, and Tenzin is one of their accolmplishments…but I can never see original cartoon images of Aang’s spirit, the older katara, or a picture of Tenzin anywhere on google! If anyone finds one, can u atleast tell me what to look up and what to look for(like the background, what they look like, etc.)

    I actually thought about this too: I’m not sure how they will make Avatar Aang look when we’re shown his avatar spirit. The show seemed to vary greatly with the age of the avatar spirits. Avatar Roku was well in his old age when his spirit contacted Aang, whereas Avatar Kuruk, Kyoshi, and Yang Chen were all simply of adult age (30-40′s). I wonder this was just a random observance, or that the image of their spirit is when they had died and the Avatar cycle has moved on to another.

    Actually just thinking of this now, but the Avatar Spirits we see seem to take the appearance of any statue of them that we see.
    YangChen looks like she does in the Eastern Air Temple, Roku Looks just like his statue in the hall of Avatars,. Kyoshi just like her statue in Kyoshi Island.
    The problem with your theory would be that Kyoshi was 230 when she died,
    Roku is the odd one out.
    It could be they take the appearance as they were in the most critical moment in their life.

    I would both love and hate it if the answer was just random.

    I really don’t think they will go for 12 year old Aang as the spirit guide, which is why the Statue of an older Aang seems perfect
