Avatar: The Last Airbender Sequel Announced

Announced by Nickelodeon via SuperHeroHype, is The Legend of Korra, an animated sequel series following up on the events of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series. At this point this is probably better news than would be an announcement of a live action sequel to the critically maligned Last Airbender movie. I for one think this is a much better way to go than a 4th season of Airbender since that story had wrapped up... though I would hope to see Aang and co in flashback form at some point. Here is the series description:

The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern "Avatar" world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang's son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
