The Legend Of Korra Book One: Air (2012 2013/Nickelodeon Blu-ray)


Picture: A- Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: A-



Korra is the next Avatar, fated to bring balance to the world. She journeys to Republic City, a city founded by Aang, the Last Airbender where both benders and non-benders can live in peace, but there she quickly finds there is no peace, a revolutionary group call the 'Equalists' lead by the mysterious masked Amon is attacking benders and brewing a war. Can Korra live up to the name and legend of the Avatar and bring peace? The Legend Of Korra Book One: Air (2012 2013) is a revival and continuation of The Last Avatar series making it the next generation of Avatar with new characters, a new world and a new avatar.


Barely a generation has gone by after Aang's war with the Fire Kingdom; Korra is a young teenage girl from the southern tribe who's come to live in the big city and to train to be the next Avatar. No sooner than when she arrives she learns of fighting between benders and non-benders. The Equalists lead by the mysterious Amon, who has the power to take away a person's bending forever. As Korra learns, makes friends, and even fall in love, she must combat her enemies and fight the forces of evil that threaten her new found friends and city. 


While there is are martial arts mixed with element powers, the new Avatar has a completely different set up than the last series. Instead of an ancient mystic Asian kingdom, it is set in a more modern industrial age city with steampunk machines. Along with the new female Avatar, the conflict now is not as much between the various fire, earth, air and water clans, but more those who have bending powers versus those who do not. All of a sudden it seems like benders are a minority (Like X-men and mutants), and the non-benders have technology to put them on an 'equal' or greater footing to fight them. While the series seemed a little rushed, there was much less for character backgrounds, but still it created a world of conflict in where the main characters and their friends are the only ones who can stop the impending doom.


The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image and DTS 5.1 sound are terrific and some of the best for any animated TV series we have seen to date, making playback of this set a real pleasure throughout. Extras include making of the legend, audio commentary from creator, staff, and cast, and creator's favorite scenes.
