Watch the First Episode of THE LEGEND OF KORRA, the Sequel to AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER

     March 24, 2012


Long before M. Night Shyamalan tainted the name of Avatar: The Last Airbender with his awful feature adaptation, millions of fans around the world were able to enjoy the animated Nickelodeon adventure series. When the show ended its three season run, those same fans were left wondering if and when their favorite characters would ever return. Luckily, Nickelodeon put the show’s sequel, The Legend of Korra into production. From creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, The Legend of Korra occurs 70 years after the original. The new avatar is a young woman named  Korra who finds herself in Republic City, the capital of the unified nations. Judging from the trailer, sneak peeks and first episode, the sequel is everything the original was and more. The show is slated for an April 14th premiere but you can get an early look at the first episode of The Legend of Korra right here! Hit the jump to check it out.

Here’s a look at the synopsis and trailer for The Legend of Korra with the full episode following after:

Taking place 70 years after the events of “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” this story follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage 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.

    Very cool. Enough carry-over from the last show to satisfy old fans, plus it’s got enough new to make it it’s own show. Looking forward to more.

  • Lizard King

    I didn’t think it could live up to Avatar: The Last Airbender, but both episodes proved to be equally as emotional, funny, exciting, and entertaining as any episode of the original! Best new show on tv!

    My wife and two kids watched it this morning, all completely giddy at the start. And the giddiness didn’t go away. Delivered in every way. Same charm, action, and fun. Now, it’s in HD, widescreen and hopefully it will be delivered in some shape I can be proud to own.

    (One of the worst things about the original series is that there is no decent way to view it. The transfers to DVD and especially the digital streaming have visible interlacing, stuttering and smearing during pans, aliasing, and other problems. I don’t know why it was done so cheaply for such a popular show, but I’d buy a nice new blu-ray of the original series in a heartbeat if they’d do it right.)
