It would have to be at least 100 years since fire is the avatar before air. So there have been two other avatars who have lived out their lives after Aang before Korra comes into the world, plus, Aang had to live out his life span too. I think it goes Earth, Water, Fire, Air for the avatar cycle.

As for movies, they need to find a different director, different actors, and different script writers from the last one before doing another. :P

Wait. Isn't Korra water-aligned? She looks like she's one of their eskimo types.

According to the promo, she is from the Water Tribe.  Not to mention that she's shown as waterbending almost exclusively at the start of it.

Bleh, shows what I know. I watched the trailer, saw the water bending, and still typed fire. Michi fail. :P

Anyway...it would still have to be at least 75-100 years from Aang to reach a Water Bender in the avatar cycle.

Actually, official material released by Nickelodeon shows that Korra was quite a gifted bender, even from a young age.

They've got a Press Site set up with all sorts of information.  Just click on 'Clips' and watch the first one to see what I'm talking about.

She was bending 3 elements at like.. SIX!. "I'm the Avatar! You have to deal with it!"

Of course from what I've seen of the first 45 minutes.. she's all power. From a starting point in the series she's a sledgehammer. No finese and none of the spiritual awareness of Aang, but then she wasn't raised like he was.  I think the fact that she came so easily to three elements makes it hard for her to change her outlook to something that is receptive to Tenzin's training methods.  (I find it the man who pushes patience has such a hard time with it with her. :D )



It's going to be fun seeing Republic city through the eyes of an outsider like Korra.

Fixed. :3

I'm pretty sure the phrase was how I saw it on the Korranation site.

Yup.. @ 2:17 into the the preview.. "I'm the Avatar. You got to deal with IT!"

It's a reference to the Naruto dub.  The main character's annoying tendency to shout out 'Dattebayo' to emphasize his conversations was replaced with an annoying tendency to shout out 'Believe it!' for the same general purpose. :P

I've lasted.. three minutes in a Naruto show. I just.. don't like it. Bleach is alien to me too. But then my favorite anime are things like Akira, Appleseed, Black Magic M-66, Black Lagoon and Cowboy Bebop.

Which was dropped around the Chuunin Exam/Sasuke retrieval arc.

Yet people still harp on about it. >_>

Anyway, One Piece is Infinitely better, more so now that they've had their own time skip.

Well I've only seen BITS of One Piece.. but I enjoyed the three or four issues of the manga I read once. Struck me as a bit of funny.. not too big on the big sillyness anymore though. I enjoyed Ranma 1/2 a ways back but not so much now.

There's still Sillyness when there needs to be. o3o

That's what I enjoy about One Piece...it's Silly, but not too silly. It can be extremely serious as well, such as when Prominent character's die or other similar moments.

 .... Steve Blum voices Amon.

 If anything, my inner fanboy for Cowboy Bebop demands I watch this.

 Let me say it again. SPIKE SPIEGEL IS AMON!

I like the series a lot.. just watched Episode 9 (go iTunes season ticket!) and the more I see..the more I suspect that Amon is a bender of some sort. Energybending is TYPICALLY an avatar power but I think that a talented bender might figure it out.

I actually thought Tarrlock might be Amon for a little while, but it seems he has his OWN issues.

It's a shame Amon's methods are so extreme, though, 'cause let's face, dude is right: benders are dicks, on the whole, particularly toward non-benders.

Also, you can watch the show on Nick's site here: http://www.nick.com/videos/legend-of-korra-videos?navid=showNav

You got some serious dicks..then I see Tenzin and the brothers (Mako and Bolin). I think the role of the Avatar is to encourage cooperation in the world..and that is one task the Avatar has failed at in multiple incarnations. That is why Amon is so successful, he is addressing the issues that the Avatar has failed to address.

The 'wild card' in this thing is going to be the lack of countering against airbending and folks like Asami Sato. Airbending, granted is a lost art, and isn't as important as 'normal' folk like Asami

You know, that Sequel to "Avatar: The Last Airbender"?

Yeah...it's premiering on April 14th.

.......................................

Why are there so many days between now and then? It's not fair. >_<

I love the show! I was very happy the made a squeal to Avatar The Last Airbender with actually people from the first.

Anyone want to try to predict what's going to happen or guess reasons for things?

Maybe Amon is immune to bloodbending because he's not fully human.  He could have synthetic body parts, like Darth Vader.

When Amon attempts to take away Korra's bending, Korra goes full avatar.  She can then take away his ability to take away bending.  Perhaps she can even restore bending to those it was taken away from.  And maybe she can go so far as to awaken bending in non-benders.
