The Legend of Korra Trailer!

Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the best television shows I have ever seen! Seriously! This show is phenomenal! Aang the Avatar, seated atop his sky bison Appa, flies all over the four kingdoms and has adventures. These adventures lead him to end the war with the fire nation and bring peace to the world. (My description kind of sucks, but the show is awesome!)

Now, there is a sequel to the show and the opening of the new television show (due in 2012) has just shown up on the internets! (Alas, the original opening has now been taken down. Hopefully you saw it!) Here is the official release video:

A little more after the break . . .

As you have probably watched above, you may note that it shows a lot of Korra kicking ass! I love this. One of my favorite aspects of the original show was the strong, complicated female characters. Katara was a waterbending BOSS and a trainer to Aang the Avatar. Toph was the strongest earthbender and was even able to teach herself metalbending! Needless to say, I have a lot of excitement about seeing Korra in action!

At last finally, I need to ask everyone here to make me a promise. Whatever you do, do not see the movie directed by M. Night Shamalan! It is terrible (and a hackneyed 3D job to build ticket-sales out of the 3D craze two summers ago). Stick with the animated TV show--no movie! Let's all say it together now, "No Avatar: The Last Airbender Movie! Only watch the show!"

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, enjoy picking a part the above video with close magnification of still shots. Also still, never mention the movie. It will make me lose all respect for you. Not to mention that it looks like Korra will probably smack you around with her waterbending if you talk about the crappy movie anyway. I suppose that counts as a fair warning!
