Now that The Legend of Korra is airing on Nickelodeon, I’m not sure what I should do with this site. Should I recap each episode? Maybe I’ll just reblog screencaps? However, I would hate to jeopardize the integrity of my website. Thoughts?
“The main theme is the same with The Legend of Korra as it was with the original series: How does one find balance in themselves and balance in the world?” said Michael Dante DiMartino, who created the original series with Bryan Konietzko. “More specifically with The Legend of Korra, we are looking at the conflict between tradition and modernity.”
Here are some other quotes from the creators; they provide an insight into the characters of the show and what we can expect in the future.
“Korra is so in love with her powers and thinks bending is the greatest thing in the world, so we thought the best antagonist to challenge a character like that would be Amon and his anti-bending revolution,” DiMartino said in an e-mail to Wired.
DiMartino continues on about Amon:
“Amon is meant to be a mysterious dude; no one knows exactly where he came from or what his ultimate goal is,” he added. “The story was designed so that the viewer discovers information about Amon along with Korra. I think the reason he is so fearsome is that Korra, and in turn the audience, doesn’t quite know who she’s dealing with or how she’s going to defeat him. It’s not a simple case of ‘beat up the bad guy and the hero wins.’ It’s much more complex.”
Don’t forget to watch The Legend of Korra tomorrow! It airs Saturdays at 11 a.m. Eastern/Pacific on Nickelodeon. (Source: 1)
