The Legend of Korra Season 1 on the iPad

Avatar Korra, a headstrong, rebellious, feisty young woman who continually challenges and breaks with tradition, is on her quest to become a fully realized Avatar. In this story, the Avatar struggles to find balance between tradition and modernity, the bending and non-bending world, and within herself.


My younger children just love how the Avatar series had evolved from the series featuring Aang, the Last Airbender.

The new series continues several years after Katara and Sokka, a brother and sister from the Southern Water Tribe, discover the twelve-year-old Aang frozen in an iceberg.  This series features descendants from some of the characters from the original series.

Each week, my children eagerly await the next episode in the series to air.  This is a show that I will be downloading for use on my iPad, Apple TV and computer.

It started with the first episode

Republic City is everything that Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko fought for when they ended the Hundred Year War. With balance restored to the four nations, benders and non-benders can live together in peace, in this thriving metropolitan area. But even the steampunk paradise of Republic City has its problems, as the next Avatar discovers. When Avatar Korra arrives in Republic City to master her airbending, she comes face to face with criminal bending gangs as well as members of a vocal anti-bending revolution. Before long, Korra's Avatar skills are put to the test when she encounters a group of Chi-blockers led by the charismatic and mysterious Amon, who threatens the city and all the benders in it. Despite the immense danger, Korra vows to fight the growing anti-bending revolution. But will she be able to stop Amon before he rises to power and makes his vision of a bending-free world a reality?
A season pass is available for the series in both standard definition for $21.99 and in high definition for $29.99.  

Watch The Legend of Korra Saturdays at 11 a.m. / 10c on Nickelodeon
