Another goodie from Comic Con weekend, the first teaser trailer for Nickelodeon’s new animated series “The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra”. As you might expect from the title, it’s a sequel to the channel’s highly successful original TV show “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, which was adapted into a less-than-successful live-action movie by M. Night Shyamalan. Check out the teaser trailer, which introduces a new hero into the equation, and she appears to be one spunky, dangerous little gal.
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.
Featuring the voices of Janet Varney as Korra, Seychelle Gabriel, P.J. Byrne, J.K., Daniel Dae Kim, Lance Henriksen, and David Faustino. Yes, David Faustino, Bud Bundy from “Married with Children”.
Coming sometime in 2012 on Nickelodeon.
