    The only thing that seemed off to me on that front was the Water Tribe kids, Katara and Sokka. They obviously were drawn in the animation with darker complexions, and they were very white in the movie.

    And they have two more movies to make yet if they're doing it properly (crossing my fingers), we'll see if they change things up with some of the yet-to-be-revealed characters.

    I liked Korra, but it got really heady really quick. It was pretty intense right from the word go while Avatar was a lot more playful in the beginning. My oldest daughter was with me all the way for Avatar but she didn't like Korra at all. I've been waiting for them to follow up on it also, but am equally wary of Nick.

    If I die without finding out what happened to Zuko's mother I'm going to be very upset.

    •  frankly, I think the fan-base was SO unimpressed (1+ / 0-)

      with the first movie, I'd be real surprised if they do more. umm, it got a 6% favorable at Rotten Tomatoes. I think a lot more folks than just the fan base were also unimpressed.

      I agree completely about the mystery of Zuko's mother!

      Oh, Korra is kind of interesting if you're also interested in Steampunk...

      •  Ah well that'll be disappointing if you're right (0+ / 0-)

        about the movie. The whole situation seems pretty unprecedented to me so I'm going to wait and see.

        I was greatly looking forward to the evolution of Zuko, because I am certain Dev Patel would knock it out of the park.

          that says it all.
