The next Avatar is here, and her name is Korra.
There is only one Avatar – one person who brings balance to the world. The Avatar maintains both the balance of nature and the balance of peace between the world’s four nations. Only the Avatar can bend all four elements – water, earth, fire, and air.
Legend of Korra, an American animated TV series, premiered 4/14/12 on Nickelodeon and is the sequel to the hit show Avatar: The Last Airbender which aired from 2005 – 2008.
Legend of Korra takes place in the same Avatar: The Last Airbender mythology /universe, only 70 years later. Technology has advanced to around that of the 1920s. Korra will be darker themed than the original series – “more mature than original, but same sense of fun and adventure”.
