    Comic-Con Trailer Direct Feed 720p:

    Comic-Con Panel Part 1


    HQ Trailer:
    http://media.mtvnservices.com/player...US&group=kids&

    Premise
    [release]The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra (originally Avatar: Legend of Korra) is an upcoming American television series set in the Avatar universe as a spin-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is expected to air on Nickelodeon in mid-2012. The series is currently under production, and is expected to run for 26 episodes. The co-creators of the original series, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, will personally write all of the episodes to allow for a tighter storyline.
    The new series will take place 70 years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc, with all-new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the next Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is "ready to take on the world". The series plans to follow Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of Airbending from Aang and Katara's son, Tenzin.[/release]

    Storyline:
    [release]Korra is a rebellious 16 year old girl from the Southern Water Tribe.[2][1] As the Avatar, she has already mastered Waterbending, Earthbending and Firebending. She will learn Airbending from Aang and Katara's son Tenzin.[3][4] The primary and only confirmed setting is Republic City, a "metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology" such as cars and motorcycles, "inhabited by people from all four nations". There are Anti-Benders in Republic City who are strongly against the art of bending. Here, Korra must deal with rampant crime and an anti-bender revolt[/release]

    Development:
    [release] Although the creators of the show had planned an ending to the show, the success of Avatar: The Last Airbender caused Nickelodeon to ask for more episodes.The creators then came up with an idea of the next Avatar, this time a girl named Korra. They decided upon a female Avatar after the large audience of females of the original show and the adoration of the headstrong female characters by the female fan base, and felt it was time to have a big action franchise with a female in the lead instead of the traditional male role.From April 2010, Nickelodeon began to hire staff for the production for the project. A title for the new mini-series, Avatar: Legend of Korra was trademarked by Nickelodeon in May 2010 and leaked by the media shortly afterward; more information was revealed in late June 2010, just prior to the release of the feature film The Last Airbender.The new show was officially announced at the San Diego Comic Con on July 22, 2010. It is to be darker and more mature than the original show; however, the creators are not attempting to target a new audience, intending to balance mature themes with a sense of fun and adventure. At that time, it was also announced that the series would run for 12 episodes.

    Also reported in July 2010 was that the mini-series will be set in an all-new setting in a familiar, but changed world. DiMartino and Konietzko stated in an interview that the world of Avatar would be "definitely changed, and evolved, and advanced, but we're very conscious of keeping the same feeling. Not totally different, but it's definitely generations later." Republic City is intended to be the only major location to avoid repeating the around-the-world adventures seen in the original series.

    After almost eight months of little official information, concept art showing the face of the main character was revealed for the first time on March 6, 2011, along with a change in the title of the show to The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. However, the premiere for the mini-series would be delayed until 2012. On March 7, 2011, part of the voice cast for the series was revealed, and on the next day, an interview with the creators was published announcing that the series had been extended by 14 episodes, to make a total of 26 episodes for the series. Konietzko stated, "We’re really happy with that number. It allows us to focus much more closely on each episode and get a lot more craft into it."

    Animation on the first 12 episodes was underway as of March 2011, with initial development and voice recording for these episodes already completed. In the interview published in March 2011, DiMartino stated, "We’ve written all the episodes. Episodes have shipped to the overseas animations studios and they’re animating away as we speak... All the vocal cast has been picked and recorded and all the scripts have been recorded." The next 14 episodes are currently under development.[/release]

    Concept Art and Images:

    [release]Name spelling are guesses, obviously.

    Recap:

    --- This show happened due to fan demand.

    --- Bryke were unsure, but the ideas came naturally and quickly.

    --- One of things that excited Bryke was differentiating between Korra and Aang.

    --- Korra is meant to be akin to a tough snowboarder.

    --- She was conceived to be more rugged than Aang.

    --- The musical concept is "if the Chinese invented Jazz."

    --- Korra's Animal Companion is a female Polar Bear Dog named Naga.

    --- The New Team Avatar will be a trio: Korra and two brothers named Mako and Bolin.

    ---Mako and Bolin are brothers, both benders, but of different disciplines.

    --- Mako is a Firebender, and the brooding type.

    --- Mako is named after the Mako.

    --- Bolin is the younger brother, a goofy Earthbender.

    --- Mako's animal companion is named Paboo/Pabu.

    --- Paboo/Pabu is a Fire Ferret, a hybrid of red panda and ferret.

    ---Republic City is now "United Republic."

    --- UR was founded by Aang and Zuko.

    --- UR is meant to be a multi-bender utopia.

    --- UR is based on 1920's Shanghai.

    --- Aang found a herd of Sky Bison after the war.

    --- There are new species of Flying Lemur.

    --- Toph travelled the World, teaching metalbending.

    --- Ty Lee's Chi blocking style has spread.

    --- Aang and Katara had three kids.

    --- Tenzin is the youngest.

    --- Tenzin had three children with a non-bender named Pema.

    --- Jinora, the studious one. Iki, the fun and crazy one. Meelo, the young goofy one.

    --- Tenzin looks like a total badass and he's serious as fuck, but can be funny.

    --- Toph's Daughter is the chief of police.

    --- The police are metalbenders and they zipline around the city.

    --- The anti-bending group are called The Equalists.

    --- They fight using Ty Lee chi blocking technique.

    --- They are led by a masked man named Oman.

    --- There will be two seasons.

    --- Season 1 will be 12 episodes , 2eason 2 14 episodes.

    --- Lauren Montgomery and Josh Middleton will be on board for Season 2.

    --- Kisu will be undertaking his normal role for Korra.

    --- There is an arena sport called Pro Bending.

    --- Pro bending will look to MMA and flashy martial arts styles for inspiration.
    [/release]

    NOTE: All information taken from: The Avatar Wiki


    This looks fucking awesome! I'll try to update the OP as best I can with more info as it comes.

    Hmm, this is going to be darker and more mature, that could end up being a good thing, or a bad thing. Seeing as how the people that grew up with Avatar have aged a little bit, it does seem like a smart decision, but the recent fanbase brought forth by the movie might not like this new direction that they are going in.

    Amazing trailer.


    Wow. When Korra and her Polar Bear/Wolf ran past TRUCKS AND CARS. Jesus Christ this show will crush the hell out of the last one. And when it showed Korra approaching two guys in SUITS AND HATS.

    I find it awesome how much has progressed between the first show and this one.

    Wait, so all of the Avatars are the same person right?

    So now we are following Aang as a 16 year old girl?

    Definitely looking forward to this.

    I never really watched the original show, but every episode I did see I liked and I try to catch it when I can. I hope this is just as good (if not better).

    you have no clue how much I loved the original series.
    But, I don't know how I feel about everything looking a lot more modern. I liked the ancient/oriental looks of the cities/towns from the last air bender.

    maybe it's just me.

    The original series was my favorite animated show of all time, so I have a strange feeling I'll like this. When watching the trailer, I got the same feeling that I had when first seeing the Season 3 trailer for the original series.

    I also love the new look of the architecture.

    I always like when there's a sense of progress in a series, it makes the world seem more alive.

    Edited:

    I wonder if that means there'll be firearms in this one.

    Also I wonder which nation those big cities belong too. I remember the fire nation being the most technologically advanced so I'm thinking its them, but some of the scenery makes me think it could also be Earth nation cities.

    I wonder how the feel of this one is going to be. Like, is it going to be more dark like the last episodes of the last one or more fun all around? I hope it keeps a balance like the last show.

    I loved it, but my only complaint had to have been how they had to handle the series finale, since the show was targeted towards kids and all. But since this series seems to be more mature, but still keeping the same kind of light humor around it I think this series may just trump the original.

    I mean comon those fights looked awesome, and this Pro bending shit sounds awesome too.

    Oh and not to mention it's nice to see an older main character too

    Alll 26 episodes take place in the same place though. Perhaps they thought too many episodes in the same setting would get people bored?

    Oh and the fact that all she has left to master is air bending, so without learning bending as a plot point I guess that can shorten it too. Plus in the OP it says that the co creators of the original series will write EVERY single episode, so it's safe to assume there won't be as much... filler type episodes that we saw in the original. Most episodes will probably directly revolve around the plot.

    polar-wolf, most animals in the avatar universe are hybrids. Remember the episode with the bear? they were confused when it just said bear and it wasnt a mix. "this place is wierd".

    From what I read they were actually at first just going to make a mini-series, guess they turned it into a full fledged sequel.

    I liked the original series, despite not being very long. It had everything a good action series should have, with dramatic/serious and funny/comic relief in the appropriate places. I still watch it today.

    This makes me excited that they're making the series more darker/mature. I think the original series would have been more interesting if they were that way.
