random: The Legend of Korra

15 September 2011

Yes, I admit that Avatar: The Last Airbender is, has, and always will be my favourite show. I've posted about it before, but I can't express how much I love this show. It's perfect combination of humour and wit, adventure, plot, and meaning is the recipe for a kid-friendly yet also teen and adult friendly show. It's heavily based off of Buddhist and Hindustan cultures and the religions themselves. Each episode relates to the next, not like the cut off ones like Spongebob, and each bit has meaning, teaches a lesson. It is by far the best thing that has ever happened children's television since the free fun silly Spongebob.

And now, The Legend of Korra is coming out! It takes place about a hundred years after Aang brought about an era of peace between the Nations. I watched the trailer and I felt this sense of sadness, that Aang is dead in this new show, that a whole hundred years passed since the time of Aang and all that fun. Now there's a new character, who doesn't possess Airbender qualities like humour and air-like-tactics (if you watched the show, you'd know what I mean) She's muscled, different, and a water bender Avatar so...it's weird. But the video is freaking amazing. You can hear the similar soundtrack from the previous show, that in this trailer, possesses an eerie, sad and mysterious quality to it. Only Avatar can amass fans of all ages including the younger generations by still being true to the meaning of the show. It's a greatly admired act, and well, let's just admit that Mike and Bryan (creators) are like, gods of like....TV.

Here, look at the trailer:

From my good site, Avatar Wiki: (click to read more)

After the conclusion of the War, Aang andZuko brought people from the four nations together and founded the United Republic, creating Republic City, a large "metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology" such as cars and motorcycles.[3] Aang and Katara had three children, the youngest (and only Airbender) of which is Tenzin. Meanwhile, Toph Bei Fong traveled extensively to teach Metalbending. After Aang's death, the next Avatar, Korra, was born to the Southern Water Tribe.

At the present time 70 years after the end of the War, Korra is a rebellious 17-year-old girl.[2][1] As the Avatar, she has already mastered Waterbending, Earthbending and Firebending. She will learn Airbending from Aang and Katara's son Tenzin.[3][4] Tenzin himself is married; Pema is his wife. Jinora, a "bookworm", and Ikki, a "motor-mouth", are his daughters while Meelo, his youngest child, is his son.[5]

The primary and only confirmed setting is Republic City. Anti-benders called "Equalists", who oppose the art ofbending, utilize techniques such as chi-blocking to further their goals of revolution, led by Amon.[3] Korra must fight rampant crime and the anti-bender revolt, assisted by two brothers, Mako, a Firebender, and Bolin, an Earthbender. She is also joined by her animal guide, Naga, and the Metalbending police force of Republic City, who are led by Toph's daughter.[5]
