The Wall Street Journal has the exclusive heads-up on Korra, the newest incarnation of Avatar.




The new Avatar, and those brooding, headstrong shoulders of hers are there.

For legality... Sokka.

Let's hope M. Night Shyamalan doesn't get his hands on this oneĀ or he'll have her name pronounced coora... and she won't do sh#&.

Wait, is Sokka making fun of Aang there? Why would someone who grew up in the frozen tundra be adverse to wearing animal skin? Does he like freezing to death?

Anyways, I was gonna post the face picture. :( Ah well, here's the voice cast for you. :)

Janet Varney as KORRA
Kiernan Shipka as JINORA
Daniel Dae Kim as HIROSHI SATO
David Faustino as MAKO
Sheychelle Gabriel as ASAMI

It's kind of sad that I'm overjoyed just because Korra looks physically powerful.

It should be a given that a trained warrior who regularly engages in violent physical combat is muscular and well-built. It should be.

But instead the vast majority of fiction portrays amazons as skinny. Ladies who are able to throw big men around, yet look like they have never done a push-up in their life. At least sometimes this is justified because the women in question has got superstrength, but more often than not she is supposed to be a Badass Normal. What gives?

So. I don't know whether Korra will be a good show or not, but now I know that it will at least look good :)

radioactivepiss: Zuko and Katara of Avatar back to back ([Zuko/Katara] dichromatic)
From: [personal profile] radioactivepiss
I recall the moment my love in Avatar and its ladies was truly cemented: when I was poking around some design material, and they'd taken the time to point to Toph as specifically stockier than Aang. I mean, I can think of very, very few shows that would do that. Korra continuing that trend of shock, gasp, actual logic makes me feel so awesome.

New title?

Date: 2011-03-07 07:30 pm (UTC)
nefrekeptah: (Ohshit)
From: [personal profile] nefrekeptah
According to the article, the new series will be titled "The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra" and not "Avatar; tLoK." Which makes - absolutely no sense, as that title referred to Aang, who is, by the current series, long dead, and there are at least two Airbenders in the world now (technically, counting Korra).

...they aren't trying to tie into the movie, are they? Are they!? That would be so very stupid on so many levels.

Probably nothing more then a callback for marketing reasons. It's a stupid title, but hopefully it'll be the worst thing we have to worry about.

I approve! It's nice to see an animated girl who actually looks like she could kick ass, with or without powers; she looks really tough and muscular.

If there was one major flaw in the first Avatar series it was a lack of characters rollin' up to people and punching them right in the goddamn face, no joke.

I'm taking those shoulders as a promise that this error will be addressed.
