Nickelodeon creates Avatar Studios to create new Avatar, Legend of Korra content

    So Nickelodeon are creating their own Avatar division to create movies, new shows and all other tie-ins.

    Great news. Hopefully this will put the nail in the coffin of the Netflix live-action version. While I was interested initially in seeing what Netflix could do with a live action show it just seemed to stall and then the creators quit. Upon reflection, I believe Avatar is best served through animation.

    If the first series announcement isn't a Kyoshi series I'll eat my hat (or fan). Done right, there is great potential for spin-offs/expansions. I never read any of the comics or expanded material but I know there is quite a bit. They can go with that for the Aang gang, concentrate on Kyoshi or any of the previous Avatars (Probably leave Roku alone as you have seen much of his story including his end), or how about the ramifications of Korra's actions? Personally, while I liked Korra, I think HER story is done but she did have a lasting impact.

    Will be interesting to see:
