[quote]The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra (originally Avatar: Legend of Korra) is an upcoming American television series set in the Avatar universe as a spin-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is expected to air on Nickelodeon in mid-2012. The series is currently under production, and is expected to run for 26 episodes. The co-creators of the original series, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, will personally write all of the episodes to allow for a tighter storyline.

The new series will take place 70 years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc, with all-new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the next Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is “ready to take on the world”. The series plans to follow Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of Airbending from Aang and Katara’s son, Tenzin.[/quote]

Looks really good.

Aww. The video said that due to copyright issues it was removed. :frowning: Oh well.
Anyway, I’ve really been looking forward to this. :3 I liked the first Avatar so much, I hope they do a great job with this one as well.
^-^

Yeah, it’ll probably keep getting deleted until I can add an official one to the post.

Until then, you can watch it on the homepage.

I can’t wait for this show to happen, I feel like I’ve been waiting so long now. Hopefully they’ll make this one in HD too.

Thank you very much for the link! :3
It looks, to say the least, Awesome!!! :woohoo: It’s practically just as good looking and has a great set-up just as I hoped it would! (great set-up as in time and looks and all that.) I think it can easily surpass the first one, though I may be getting my hopes up a little too much. :stuck_out_tongue:
The only one thing I was utterly caught off-gaurd by was the fact that it looks like the new avatar is a girl. I mean, I know they can be female as well, but back when I saw the poster for the show when I originally heard about it, it looked very much like a male lead. But I guess eyes are deceiving, aren’t they? ^-^;

Anyway, I’m looking forward to this all the more now!! :laugh:

time has passed and only the comic will tell what happened… this is so .//hack

so betwen the two series, only the comic will fill the gap in what Aang did after the war, and what has happened to the world.

seems more modern in some aspects though which is a bit interesting to see in that video, as well a water tribe doing firebending?

but then…

Aang can bend energy to take away bending, so maybe he is NOT the last airbender afterall and can also give bending to people to create a new group of air benders?

Second Avatar Series Planned for Mid-2012

Avatar sequel Last Airbender: Legend of Korra is due to run on Nickelodeon in mid-2012, but little media has circulated since summer’s San Diego Comic con trailer. Well, prepare for something to stoke your Bender hype, because Legend of Korra’s opening title sequence has turned up.[/quote]

Ha! I guess it’s not too surprising that Viacom already had the clips pulled.

Yeah, I didn’t expect the OP to last long on YT, but I had to post it.

Like the trailer I posted I doubt if it pops up again on YT it’ll last long, but I’ll try and get another one posted if I see one pop up.

The trailer is out.

[size=15]“The Last Airbender” Co-Creator Comments on “Legend of Korra” Scheduling[/size]
Korra says, “HEY! Don’t worry. Be happy.”

Avatar: The Last Airbender co-creator Bryan Konietzko has taken to his Tumblr blog to clear up some of the confusion and worry about when his follow-up, The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra, is actually going to hit Nickelodeon and why the planned time frame has been shifted around.

[quote]Korra says, “HEY! Don’t worry. Be happy.”

This is a good time to be a fan of Korra. No, I can’t tell you the release date at this moment, but I can assure you the announcement will be very soon. I just wanted to clear up some of the confusion and misinformation out there. It was originally announced that Korra would premiere “sometime in 2012” which was right on track with when we’d be ready to show it. Then right before the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, Mike and I learned that the network was going to push it back to 2013, which is what we reported at the panel. That was true for a time, but plans have changed again, as they are prone to do. So although I can’t reveal the exact release date here today, I can assure you all that Nickelodeon is not delaying the series or anything of the sort. In fact, they are putting their full support behind it.

You will see Korra as soon as it is ready to be aired, which is soon! I know it is easy to be mad at a big faceless corporation, but the truth of the matter is that now the only thing keeping you from seeing the show is the reality of how long it takes us to make this many episodes of animation at this level of quality. We need to have enough episodes finished to air them regularly, or else you guys would probably get mad again!

Korra has taken longer to produce than Avatar, precisely and solely because we asked for a longer production schedule so we would have more time for the storyboarding, design, art direction, animation, etc., all in the interest of crafting a higher quality show, and Nickelodeon gave us the support to do that. (Ask around and find another studio that backs its shows like that… You’ll have a hard time.) We may not love every decision that comes down the pipeline, but the fact remains that this network has made it possible for us to create a series we are very proud to share with you. We fully appreciate your enthusiasm, and we know just how lucky we are to have so many people eager to see our work. But we are only interested in putting out quality work, not doing it on the “fast and cheap” just so we can hurry up and get it out there.

So don’t be mad, unless you want to be mad at us for being slow (or more specifically me, the slowest of them all), or mad at animation for taking so long (a daily emotion for me). So be happy! There is much to be happy about.[/quote]

Apparently, the first episode leaked some how and is floating around the net, even though it doesn’t air until April 14th.

I’ll need to track that down. Did you happen to see it? If so, what were your thoughts on it.

The trailers for the show have seemed pretty bad, but yet I rather enjoyed the original series so I’ll give this a shot. Hopefully it won’t be like the Thundercats reboot and undo everything which was good about the original. I was really hoping that there would be a slew of anime VAs involved in this show, but the only actor I recognize is David Faustino. I hope he gets a lot of speaking time in the series as the idea of Bud Bundy in anything is just ROFL-inducing. You know it :laugh:

You could be a good person and wait for it to come out legally and not track it down illegally. Just because it’s out there doesn’t mean you have to support the pirate industry.

Just my two cents.
