Return of Avatar: The Last Airbender

Korra- from Nickelodeon
When my children were young we spent a lot of time on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Thankfully, they outgrew SpongeBob and Blue’s Clues. There was one program that the whole family enjoyed and got behind: Avatar: The Last Airbender. We waited anxiously for each season to begin, saw the movie together (no comment on that craziness), and felt the same disappointment when the series ended.
Set your DVR’s for the brand new series from the makers of the The Last Airbender. It debuts on Nickelodeon this Saturday. The Legend of Korra premieres April 14 at 11:00 am Eastern time. Now seventy years after The Last Airbender, the new avatar is a spunky girl, named Korra. Korra heads to Republic City to master her airbending skills, but runs head-long into an anti-bending revolution. Watch the trailer here: Trailer 2

Don’t expect to see you’re old favorites. Aang, Sokka, and Zuko are gone. This is a whole new cast and a new storyline, though based in the same world. Most exciting, you can expect to see children of past characters. I’m hoping the humor and depth of characters of The Last Airbender will return to vault The Legend of Korra into a new favorite. It will be something to bring busy teenagers and parents together again. We’ll miss the old characters, but hopefully love the new ones.

  1. YAY!!!!! So very excited. I will be setting my DVR. I think my husband and I loved this series more than the kids did. I will also refrain on commenting on the movie version, other than to say, "Yuck!"

  2. I'm jumping up and down and being all sorts of crazy about this. I jumped right out of my seat when I first found out they were making the new series, and now I'm nail biting my way to the 14th. :D
