TV: First Look at The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra

Posted on March 7, 2011

Nickelodeon's critically acclaimed and extremely popular cartoon show, Avatar: The Last Air Bender, is going to be getting a sequel. This new series will be set 70 years into the future and will follow a new Avatar named Korra who attempts to master the element of air, which leads her into a steampunk themed world.

The Legend of Korra was originally announced last year when the live-action film was being heavily promoted (and failed). During that time, they reveled a sneak peak on how the world would look like (the picture above). Yesterday, they revealed an official picture of the main character, Korra, giving us a better look at how she's going to look like.

Also, they revealed today the actors that will be providing their vocal talents to the new series:

  • Janet Varney as KORRA
  • Kiernan Shipka as JINORA
  • Daniel Dae Kim as HIROSHI SATO
  • David Faustino as MAKO
  • Seychelle Gabriel as ASAMI
  • Lance Henriksen as LIEUTENANT
  • P.J. Byrne as BOLIN
  • JK Simmons as TENZIN
  • Here's a short description on what the new series will be about:

    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 teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.

    The new series will air sometime mid-2012.
