new characters, a new world and a new avatar.
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.
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.
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.
