It was a fascinating aspect to explore at least in part. After all, it was a war between benders that nearly destroyed the kingdoms during the fire nation attacks and they most likely did not spare the non-benders.

Perhaps this will be the theme in the upcoming season. Aang's task as avatar was to return balance to the four bending nations. Korra's can be to return balance to the benders and the non-benders.

I kinda look forward to being 30 when we're up to something like 'The Legend of (8th avatar series)' and we can say things like 'man, I remember when it was Aang vs the firelord...'

The present Dalai Lama's name is Tenzin Gyatso

I believe Tenzin is a common Tibetan name. What of it? The Air Nation has quite obviously been based partly on Tibetan culture.

Yes, but given the existing parallels between Aang as the avatar and the way the Fire Nation handled that and the present Dalai Lama's situation with China it's mindblowing that Korra's airbending teacher was named Tenzin and Aang's was named Gyatso.

if it had been a coincidence, sure.
I am pretty sure it was on purpose and just a case of naming a character after someone.
Sort of how Mako is named after the original voice actor for Uncle Iroh.

That's exactly my point. It's mindblowing that it's a planned thing. It's not just that there's parallels, they're actually slapping you in the face with it but I hadn't even realised...

Ah!
I suppose I don't see that as mindblowing but a perfectly sensible, even logical, naming homage.
But a blow is in the mind of the beholder... Wait... perhaps I should rephrase that.

Nick must have offered the creators a lot more money.  Korra continues to grow and now is schedule to be 52 episodes broken into 4 books of 13.  Book 2 will be next April.  I believe they will be moving to 2 books a year starting next year.

Do you think the creators decided to expand it because they got more money? That's not how it works... Nickelodeon essentially 'orders' more episodes because it's doing well.

Partly, but the creators posted before Nick contacted them saying they're creating more. Once it gets to a certain level of demand, there's no need to actually contact the broadcaster; you're assured to get paid for more.

What I am talking about is the story behind the creations of Korra.  The creators had moved on to other things.  Nick contacted them and convinced them to do something in the Avatar universe.  It was going to be only a few episodes for a mini-series.  That story was expanded to the first 13 episodes.  That then got turned into 26 episodes.  The next 13 is supposed to be a different storyline than the first 13.  Now it got turned into 52. 

Traditionally, it would be the creators trying to sell more episodes to the broadcasters.  However, it now seems to be that the broadcaster is going to the creator and asking them for more episodes.  It is a bit reversed from the usual situation.  Maybe after doing 26 episodes the creators decided they wanted to stick with Korra and convinced Nick to allow them to do more.  It just seems to me that when they had been against doing a full series again and then end up doing one, it is often do to money.

Just a random question...
Does one have to have seen ALL of the original avatar to watch korra?
Thanks

Not at all, Andrew. It helps in some regards but it's not really necessary.

Although the intro to Korra does include minor Aang spoilers.... though to be honest they're fairly obvious and you could have guessed them, it does ruin a few twists.

I will probably offend.....    It never measured up to the original series for me.   Saw every episode.  But never loved it Like,I did the first.

I just discovered that they made some books about the artwork and designs used for the cartoon. Seeing as that was my favourite part, I figured it might interest people on here as well. They had some great steampunk designs. It's called The Legend of Korra: Book 1 – Air, The Art of the Animated Series.
