the last airbender: the legend of korra

The kid and I are excited that a new Avatar is on the way. The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra is coming up on Nicktoons. This series is supposed to take place long after Avatar Aang saved the world in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
The new series takes place 70 years later in the same world and follows the new Avatar, a teen girl named Korra who has learned to bend earth, water and fire and seeks to master air under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin.—The Wall Street Journal
A female Avatar is super cool. The trailer makes her look like a lone wolf. It will be interesting to see if she assembles a crew like Aang did. Seeing her kick but with skyscrapers in the background is a little jarring, but it looks to have the same rich details as the previous series, so it should be fun.

We were such fans of the original series we scooped up the DVDs. It will be hard not to see favorite characters like Aang, Katara, Zuko, Sokka, Uncle Iroh, and Toph. Not to mention the wonderful animals, Appa the flying bison, and Momo the winged lemur. Maybe the new series can include them from time to time via flashback. Did I mention I was a fan?

Looking forward to this new Avatar. And we may need to watch some of our favorite episodes with Aang while we wait.
