It feels like it’s been forever since the first season of The Legend of Korra ended, and to be honest, I was starting to worry that it wouldn’t be coming back. Fortunately, we can now rest easy in the knowledge that everyone’s favorite Avatar is on her way back. Tomorrow, Nickelodeon is launching the Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience, a free app that’ll give fans a peek at the upcoming season — including character designs for Korra’s iceberg-throwing cousins.
It’s been nearly four years since Avatar: The Last Airbender concluded its original run on Nickelodeon, and in that time the Eastern-influenced fantasy epic has spawned a live action motion picture, a comic series and more. What fans were really waiting for, however, was a true animated series sequel. This Saturday, fankind gets its wish as The Legend of Korra makes its on-air debut. Set 70 years after the events of The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra introduces a powerful young Avatar to her world’s most populous and complicated city, where she’ll have to overcome crime, corruption and a masked menace working to turn non-benders against those who can manipulate water, earth, fire and air. ComicsAlliance reached out to The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko to learn more about their own four-year journeys bringing the new animated series to life.
