AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER Sequel LEGEND OF KORRA Greenlit by Nickelodeon

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Nickelodeon)

The animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender will live on as Nickelodeon has given creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko the green light on a new series that will be a continuation of Avatar. The new series is tentatively titled LEGEND OF KORRA.

The new series will be a continuation of the Avatar story and will focus on a young female named Korra who is the next Avatar. The new series will be set 70 years beyond the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender and will see Korra arriving in Republic City to master one last element, air. She receives help during her fight against crime from Tenzin, the son of the previous avatar, while at the same time facing an anti-bending movement that could bring down the metropolis.

The new series will premier in 2011 and Nickelodeon’s Animation Studio in Burbank, California will be handling the production.
