The Legend of Korra is a hugely popular animated television show that was cancelled after the third season in May of 2021. While the show ended its second season with much fanfare, there have always been other stories told in the universe through the comic books. While The Legend of Korra didn't have an extensive collection of episodes to collect in print, this last collection is the proper order to read through them to get the full story as meant. Each issue will feature a different main story, while the supporting characters and side stories will be discussed in each. The end result is that The Legend of Korra is a show worth watching over again for those fans that missed out on the first two seasons.
It's widely known throughout the world that Avatar: The Last Airbender is the highly anticipated movie to follow up on the huge success of The Legend of Korra. While it's still expected to be a massive hit when it comes to the box office, Avatar is a risk worth taking for Nickelodeon. With a huge fan base that spans across multiple generations, Avatar has the potential to go on to become one of Nickelodeon's longest running shows. The success of The Legend of Korra has also increased the scope of potential television projects involving the world of Avatar. Nickelodeon has even reached into the comic book world with the news that they've renewed their licensing deal with Dreamworks to produce four new Avatar movies. The four movies will be titled Avatar: The Promise, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Avatar: Defiance and Avatar: Turin.
Nickelodeon has also picked up the rights to create five television series based on the successful animated series Avatar. These shows will debut in late 2021, with the first episode featuring the main characters of the Avatar films. The new comic book Avatar The Last Airbender tie-in series will be written by Breaking Into Comics writer Christopher Golden and drawn by acclaimed Avatar co-creator, Frank Lopez.
The Legend Of Korra is due to begin its third season in late 2021. Based on the successful Avatar films, The Legend Of Korra continues the saga of the young airbender named Avatar. After a devastating flood kills his family and nearly destroys the earth, the last remainingbender, Aang, is left alone to recover from his grief and fight to keep the world safe. Along with his friends, including Mako, who are also survivors of the tsunami, Aang travels across the globe following the Avatar through time. He reunites with his past friends and begins to put together a plan to prevent the chaos that will follow if Avatar falls into the wrong hands.
The Legend Of Korra has a number of returning characters from the two previous animated series. Because of the success of the Avatar movies, Nickelodeon is looking to make four more seasons of the Legend Of Korra, beginning with the upcoming second season, The Promise. The first season, The Adventures of Avatar, was watched by over eight million people. Nickelodeon plans to make four more seasons, possibly five if their ratings increase after the premiere of The Promise.
In late 2021, Nickelodeon announced that The Legend Of Korra would begin a final season, later in 2021. Nickelodeon also revealed that there would be three movies based on the stories from the final seasons, The Last Airbender, The Edge of Town, and The Book of Hero. The books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been made into popular motion pictures and TV shows, including several feature length animated films. Nickelodeon also revealed that fourteen books, featuring the works from the first four seasons of the show, would be released throughout the year.
For many fans, the appeal of the Legend Of Korra comic is that there are only two female leads - Princess Azula and Queen Amidala - instead of the three featured in the series. There are also more minor roles for other supporting characters, including two background characters played by Alyssa Milano and an unknown actress. Additionally, there is not much fantasy or mythology in the Legend Of Korra comic, other than what has been already released in the two TV series. Additionally, no mention was made as to where the story might take place, although fans have speculated it could be somewhere in the future.
Even with the new source material, it is still impossible to match the popularity of the original Legend Of Korra series. The animated television series won seven Golden Globes for best animated television series, including a special achievement by creator Mike and Tim Parente. In fact, the Avatar the movie surpassed expectations, becoming the highest grossing movie of all time at the box office. There are little doubt that Avatar will continue to entertain fans through its four seasons and beyond.
