The Last Airbender - The Legend of Korra

A new trailer for the sequel to 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' was revealed at Comicon! The new series takes place 70 years after the events of the Avatar TV show and features an all new teenaged Avatar, Korra of the Southern Water Tribe! SHe's described as "a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl who is hotheaded, independent and ready to take on the world". The show also features Aang's son Tenzin who will be her airbending instructor!

The story revolves around a metropolis city inspired by Steampunk designs that gathers people of all nations to live together and the beginnings anti-bender sentiments. The show will debut next year and is expected to run 26 episodes long! Intriguingly, the show is discarding the 'Avatar' branding from its title in favor of 'The Last Airbender.' Perhaps due to wishing to avoid confusion with James Cameron's hit Avatar movie whose rights to the name forced the live action movie adaptation of the Avatar show to be renamed as 'The Last Airbender.'
