To all of my Avatar fans, want to see the 2 part premier of Avatar: The Legend of Korra three weeks before it airs on TV?!?!? Then check it out on KorraNation.com here!!! I don’t know how long we’ll be able to watch this, so I say, watch it today or you may have to wait until April 14th!!
Now, if only Wei would wake up so that I can watch it too!! He has 10 minutes to finish his nap or I’m watching it alone!! I know, it’s wrong … but, what can I say? It’s AVATAR!!! I’VE BEEN WAITING 4 YEARS FOR THIS!!!
UPDATED TO ADD: Without giving too much away, just wanted to tell you all that I watched the first two episodes and my initial thoughts are that it has a different feel and flow than the original. The characters feel undeveloped as of yet and I think that was definitely a strength of the original series. ATLA seemed to have an innate ability to quickly develop characters that you loved within one episode. I mean, c’mon, remember the Cabbage Man?!?! LOL! Also, the music in some places feels more forced and “out front” than the original. However, I’m hoping that the show with “settle” in a few episodes and that it’ll feel more natural once we get to know the characters a little better. That being said, my butt will be firmly glued to my seat for this one. I don’t expect it to surpass or even match ATLA, but I do expect a great story. And, I can’t wait to see the flashbacks that I know are coming that will reveal some of the missing puzzle pieces of ATLA … such as, how did Zuko reunite with his mother? Why did Uncle go into the Spirit world? Will Koh reappear and keep his promise to Aang, “We’ll meet again?” I have my suspicions and theories, but won’t ruin it for you;).
Saw this on Bryan Konietzko’s Tumblr on Wednesday! Then headed on over to one of my favorite, All-Things-Avatar sites, AvatarSpirit.net and learned that The Legend of Korra debuts on Nickelodeon on Saturday, April 14th at 11 a.m.!!! Aaaaannnnnnd, I checked out a couple new video clips on the Korra Nation Tumblr, including this cute one of a young and talented Korra!
Oh my gosh … oh my gosh … OH MY GOSH!! BOOKMARKED!! If you love all things Avatar (with the exception of that travesty of a film) like me, you’ll want to check out all the great stuff Bryan Konietzko, co-creator of Avatar, is sharing on his new Tumblr page!!

Oh, and in case you didn’t see this, here is a commercial airing on Nickelodeon that includes snippets of Legend of Korra! 2012 baby!!!
(p.s. And I learned that Lauren Montgomery is on the animation team too! She directed the awesome Wonder Woman straight to DVD DC release! I won a copy at NYCC 3 years ago AND a poster signed by her, Bruce Timm and writer, Michael Jelenic:)!)
Most of you know about my love of Avatar: The Last Airbender. For those of you who don’t, I’m OBSESSED! In my opinion, it is the absolute best series on TV EVER … not cartoon … SERIES!! It’s just brilliant! Now, here’s the first peek at the opening for the new Avatar series, The Legend of Korra. I’m going to lose it!! I will be riveted to my TV when this finally premiers sometime next year, hopefully. If you loved this series as much as I, you better watch this fast as I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets pulled very quickly. Given that the words are backwards, it’s pretty obvious that it’s not an official release!
