Is ‘Korra’ Better Than ‘Avatar’?

"The Legend of Korra" isn't airing a new episode today, so it's a good time to take a step back and reflect on how the season is going. The big question: Is "Korra" better than "Avatar: The Last Airbender"?

'Avatar: The Legend of Korra' Will Be a Miniseries

Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of Nickelodeon's most popular shows. It ran for three seasons on the network, receiving acclaim from child and adult audiences alike. The show's first season even spawned an awful M. Night Shyamalan adaptation. But when the sequel series, The Legend of Korra hits the small screen, don't expect it to stick around for too long. Unlike its predecessor, The Legend of Korra will be a miniseries. "As a mini-series, it's going to be really tight. While we really love the filler episodes, those are some of our favorites, this thing is just lean and mean. It's a really cool driving story," show creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko told DiMartino and Koniezkto will be writing all the episodes for the series, though how long the miniseries will be is still up in the air.

The Next Avatar is Coming Soon.

In 2011, get ready to be blown away. From the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it's the legend of the next Avatar in the cycle, and this time, every bender is in danger. Seventy years have passed since Aang's defeat of Fire Lord Ozai, and the mystical cycle of Avatar reincarnation continues to run it's course. From the Southern Water Tribe, a new Avatar is born. She quickly masters water, earth, and fire, but must learn air bending to become a fully realized Avatar. When she arrives in Republic City, she not only has to learn Airbending from Aang and Katara's son, but must deal with a growing anti-bender movement, as well.

'The Legend of Korra' Follow-Up to 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'

Don't let the god-awful movie taint your opinion of the source material: Avatar: The Last Airbender was damn good, especially for a children's show. Sure, it was derivative in some aspects, but the eastern-inspired series was one of the most original content put on children's television last decade. I watched the first season during its original run in 2005, and the series ushered me not only into my teenage years but into a greater view of television as a medium. Sure, it had moments of utter silliness, but it was actually an emotionally mature show, and it really opened up my eyes to the nature of real serialized storytelling. To Read More Click Here .

Nickelodeon Greenlights THE LAST AIRBENDER Spinoff, THE LEGEND OF KORRA

Nickelodeon has given the go-ahead to The Legend of Korra, a spinoff of the popular and wonderful Avatar: The Last Airbender. Before Airbender fans begin hyperventilating about a crappy cash-in on their beloved property (wasn't Shyamalan's movie enough?!), series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are behind the new project. According to Variety, Korra will take place 70 years after the events of Avatar with rebellious teenager Korra as the new Avatar and the center of the storyline. Variety also says that Nick is hoping the new series will be more femme-friendly, which is strange since I know more female die-hard Avatar fans than male ones. Nick toon president Brown Johnson said of Korra, This new avatar is not only a girl, but also hot-headed, independent and ready to take on the world. It's an interesting take as the main characters of Avatar will either be deceased or very old. However, without spoiling anything about the series, there was room for the story to grow and I'm excited for whatever DiMartino and Koietzko want to do. Source Here

For once, I begin to like what I see. The new theatrical trailer was mind blowing! However, there is one thing that really bugged me. There was no comedy in the trailer whatsoever which bares the question, is there going to be comedy? By M. Shayamalan that it'll suck unless its got comedy, and Dev Patel with a scar as big as Zuko's. If you see it, comment on it, I'd be nice to read other ppl's opinions

Guess What? First Teaser Trailer From "The Last Airbender"

From the looks of it M Shaylman takes martial arts a little to the max on this movie, effects are 100% cool but the kid who makes Aang doesn't look like Aang, and he has hair. Yup! A hair-on-the-head kid makes Aang, lets just hope Shaylman makes the right calls. But the movie seems to deliver and not completely suck as many people seem to think that it will.
