New Avatar: The Last Airbender series

The internet is buzzing today with the official announcement of Avatar: The Legend of Korra.

The new series takes place 70 years after the original series and follows the new Avatar, a water-bender named Korra as she masters the four elements. On her journey to master Air, she meets Aang’s son, Tenzin, in the center of the new Avatar world Republic City.

Based on that small amount of information alone, I am filled with questions. What do we know? Sadly, Aang is no longer alive…but 70 years isn’t THAT long. The rest of the gang would probably be in their 80s. What are the chances of seeing octogenarian versions of Katara, Sokka, and Toph? What is the new governmental structure of the world? Will we meet children of other Aang Gang members? I would love to see the child of Zuko and Mai. Or an extremely clumsy, yet badass child of Sokka and Suki? The questions keep on coming.

What questions are forming in your mind after this announcement? Will this new series forever erase the film from your mind?
