The legend of Korra starts off with Aang's successor, Korra learning Airbending under Aang's son Tenzin in the semi-modern Republic City. To avoid overlap with the last airbender Korra is shown to have already mastered the bending of the other 3 elements. To fill the need for a bad guy (terrifying guy, really) we have Amon - the leader of the anti-bender movement. For the sports lovers, there's the pro-bending championship featuring some really cool bending moves aaand we get to see more than just one or even two elements being bended at the same time (in a non-lethal environment)! For the pet lovers, there are characters Naga and Pabu who could easily grow to be as lovable as Appa and Momo. The story unfolds quickly and is very engaging.Read more ›
This new series has delivered beyond my expectations. It takes the original and advances it - creating something that is both familiar and new at the same time. For fans of the original, there are many shout outs and in-references to characters and events past. There is humor, drama, intrigue, and a villain with a mysterious enough back story to pull you in. I don't want to say too much and risk spoilers.
I also like the strong female role model. As a dad of two, its nice to see lead female characters. Avatar has always had strong female role models, and this series is no different.
Newcomers, do not worry if you haven't seen the original. My wife can count on one hand the number of original series episodes she's watched. She has watched all of the Korra episodes and had no difficulty following long.
I can't recommend this enough.
A lifetime has passed between the ending of Avatar and the beginning of Korra, and in that time the world of the four nations has moved on. Even during the scope of the original series, we saw that world in a state of technological ferment. In the time between the two series, this process has clearly marched on unabated. By the time Korra begins, we find ourselves in a world with technology comparable to early 20th century Earth.
To those who fell in love with the world of the first series, I'd say only this: don't worry, for there is nothing to fear here. The writers have not destroyed or replaced their original creation. Rather, they have profoundly deepened it. There is the sense of a real world with its own internal logic and course of development - a world that changes precisely because of its own reality. Integral to this is the fact that it's not just the technology that has moved forwards. Everything from the society's economic basis to its martial arts has changed since last we were here, but always in logical and internally consistent ways. You can tell that this is a show made by people with a deep respect for the integrity of their own creation.
As with the original series, this logical and consistent quality - this ability to just plain think things through - applies not only to the world-building, but also to the plot and story. At all times we have the sense of a tapestry being woven.Read more ›

I see they didn't replace one of the fire symbols with the water symbol on the cover. This is going to bug the hell out of me.

In order to do so they would need to remaster the entire series. Unlike the legend of Korra when avatar the last air bender came out there wasn't any Hd TV streaming. And Blu Rays weren't purchased as much. So in order for them to release the last air bender in Blu ray they would need to pay the... Read More

|Won't play on region one players?||
Unfortunately, the warning is so horribly worded that you would think so. In fact, what it's actually saying is that it won't work on DVD-only players. I think it happens because the system sometimes thinks of DVDs and Blurays as being the same thing, just with different encoding (note how it... Read More
