Following the widespread success of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Nickelodeon's latest animated adventure continues the story in The Legend of Korra. Set 70 years after the original show, The Legend of Korra stars the world's newest Avatar, a girl named Korra from the Southern Water Tribe. Like her predecessor, Aang, Korra is able to control all four elements: earth, water, air and fire. At the beginning of the show, she has mastered water, earth and fire, but lacks the patience and spirituality required to master airbending. Korra must overcome her troubles with the element, however, or face dire consequences. Her world is changing, as technology advances and humanity flourishes, leaving many questioning the necessity of the Avatar.

Bored with her life of isolation and constant training at the South Pole, Korra eagerly awaits the arrival of her new airbending master, Aang's son Tenzin. Unfortunately, the visit is short-lived as Tenzin is called away to important business in his home, Republic City. Korra, frustrated and upset, makes her escape and follows Tenzin to the city. Upon her arrival, Korra quickly learns that no amount of Avatar training can prepare her for a life of politics and intrigue. She wanders the streets of Republic City with her polar-bear-dog Naga, until a collision with the local police force puts her back into Tenzin's custody. Korra convinces him to let her remain in the city to complete her training, and in the process meets a pair of orphaned boys who quickly become her fast friends.

Although she soon makes a name for herself playing Republic City's sport of choice, pro-bending, Korra is not welcomed by everyone. There is a growing anti-bending movement within the city, led by a mysterious group calling itself the Equalists. Their leader is a shadowy figure named Amon, gifted with a power that even Korra fears. The only way Korra can overcome the Equalists is by getting in touch with her past lives, including Aang himself: something she is hesitant to attempt. As if that wasn't enough, she must also learn to balance her training with the needs of her friends and the challenges of growing up. Action, romance and friendship are all blended together through superb storytelling and direction.

The Legend of Korra premiered on April 14, 2012, and is scheduled to run for 26 episodes over two seasons. The second season is expected to air sometime in 2013, and there has been speculation that a third may follow in 2014.
