Just heard about this yesterday and It's undeniably awesome news.
Avatar was without a doubt one of Nick's best animations to date if not THE BEST, so I'm glad the creators are getting another shot to work their magic again with a completely different plot and characters.
Not saying the old characters are bad in any way but I think the finale did a phenomenal job of wrapping up everyone's stories, give or take a missing mother or two. Besides that I felt the story was complete.
A large time skip which will show just how much the world has changed after the peace treaty and all of the new plot elements sound extremely promising, the anti-bending faction in-particular. I can not wait for the series to come back.
this is fake
Large enough timeskip to justfy new timeline? Check.
Same animation staff? Check.
Involvement of original creators? Check.
No sign of M. Night Shyamalan? Check.
Face it man, there's no factors that could possibly make it suck here.
but for the 4th season, i wanted to see
1 aang to start a new air bender tribe
2 Zuko to look for and find his mother
3 toph and katara to fight rebel fire nation that are trying to bring back there old ways
but i will watch (avatar: the legend of korra) just to see if i will like it are not
I don't want to see a sequel. Sequels fail too often and Avatar ended alright enough. A brand new cast with a more advanced world and a glimpse of the past is going to make the show great. It's kinda like Gundam, in terms of...the same franchise but a different story.
