It has been recently discovered that the creative duo behind both the incredibly popular Nickelodeon television series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra have parted ways, creatively. The separation was confirmed at an art show, recently at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California. Learn more about this heartbreaking news after the jump.
Not only was the movie, The Last Airbender, a horrible adaptation of a great animated series, but it was a complete insult to everything that Avatar: The Last Airbender had created. With hopes of redemption, I believe that The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra will make up for M. Night Shamalamadingdong’s failure and save this once great franchise. At this year’s Comic-Con, the folks at Nickelodeon had brought the first trailer for The Legend of Korra and it was more than anyone could have dreamed of. Watch the spectacular trailer after the jump!
Nickelodeon has sent out a press release, which SuperHeroHype obtained, giving information on the greenlight to “The Legend of Korra,” from “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series creators Micael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. The next series in the Avatar franchise is going to take place 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The new Avatar will be a hot headed rebellious teenage girl who we follow after she has mastered three of the four elements and now looks for a master to teach her airbending. She meets Aang’s son, Tenzin, in the middle of the biggest city in the world now, Republic City. There their travels take them through adventures to help fight crime and solve mysteries in the new world. After watching the highly praised series, I can vouch and say that this is pretty awesome news. I hope they maintain the spirit and creativity that the first series offered.
