Viacom television network Nickelodeon has announced the Blu-ray release of The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air, the well-received first season of creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko's followup to their own hit series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Legend of Korra picks up several decades after the fall of Fire Lord Ozai, as the new Avatar -- a feisty young girl from the Southern Water Tribe -- is discovered. Book One streets on July 16th.
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 (voiced by Janet Varney) 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?
The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air has already been renewed for an additional three seasons (Books Two through Four). Book One special features include:
