  1. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  2. nononooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo thats tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo late

  3. NO. It is delayed until mid 2012, NOT 2013. It was going to premier in 2011, but because of the popularity more episodes are being created:) 2013 is way too late. Don’t worry people, it’s 2012, look it up.

  4. As much as I would be displeased with the delay, if such means better results from the show, I’m all for it. I’d rather a delay and be very happy with the results than them release it earlier then planned and have it worse off.

  5. Well i know of some good, this is the avatar people, the avatar says it will exist in 2013 so that means either the “2012” stuff is BS or Korra will save us all to be aired in 2013 ahahah

  6. I really can’t wait for it. I don’t know how many times I can re watch the original episodes before I start reciting them in my sleep. I NEED NEW AVATAR! Until then, ponies I guess.

  7. I bet avatar: The legend of Aang was a 1 hit wonder.
    Legend of korra cannot bring the same amount of excitement and feelings as LOA did. Considering aang did have lots of flashbacks from the past (with the other airbenders).

  8. ok well im excited for this but im afraid that this series is to modern . avatar the last airbender was very like old fashon no cars or anything and thats one of the thing i love but i know ill love the new series but still. im afraid of the modern era.

  9. Im so excited abt it coming out too. I found this out b/c i was loking up something for teen titans and it popped up on a sidebar in youtube. I was preaying tht it wasn’t another fanmade mini movie or something like that. Now Im so happy and hope that it will come out soon before we all die in 2012.(so they say). My friend’s theory is that the mayans broke their pencil while writing the calendar and they couldn’t find another one. LMAO!!

  10. Aw! I was excited and everything for this year too! But I guess I can wait a little while longer.
    Maybe they’ll make Korra a little less manry during our wait? 😀

  11. Lol..legend of korra gonna suck cause they dont have toph or aang or katara or her brother…..or appa! …no funny characters..its gonna be about KORRA…only..and fighting..and korra..and FIGHTING…and korra again..
