Hoooooolyyyy shiiiiiiiiiit!! How could I have missed this? :O The animation and the artwork are so frinkin awesome! I can’t believe that they are actually putting movie-quality-animation into the series. The release date for the series is mid-2012 on Nickelodeon… I CAN’T WAIT!! 😀

Here’s a shameless copy paste of the series’ overview from Wikipedia 🙂

The series will focus on Korra, a teenage female from the Southern Water Tribe and the current incarnation of the Avatar, who, according to the president of Nickelodeon, will be “hotheaded, independent, and ready to take on the world”. She has already mastered Water, Earth, and Fire, but has yet to master Air. The character was partly inspired by Avatar Kyoshi of the original series, who the creators say was well-liked among fans. To avoid repetition of Aang’s adventures, the show will be set in a single place, called Republic City, a steam-punk metropolis inhabited by benders and non-benders of all nations and founded by Aang and Zuko after the 100-year world war of the original series. The city’s police are Metalbenders (a subset of Earthbenders), taught their art by Toph Bei Fong of the original series, and led by her daughter. The city’s most popular sport is pro-bending, which sets teams of benders against each other. The conflict of the first season will center upon a group of anti-benders, called the Equalists, who use chi-blocking to subdue their enemies. A concept drawing of the city, released with the announcement of the series, shows the city’s design inspired by Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s, Hong Kong, Manhattan, and Vancouver. In the show, Korra will learn Airbending from Tenzin, youngest child of Aang and Katara, and will contend with an anti-bender revolution in Republic City. Korra’s final design was revealed at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Convention, along with her companion Naga. It was also mentioned that Aang found a small colony of flying bison after the war, and that the second season will include ring-tailed winged lemurs.
