Great Interview From Comic-Con
I found a great interview from Comic-Con to the creators of the series. It contains lots of juicy tidbits of information. I highly recommend reading the full interview here: http://www.ugo.com/tv/comic-con-2010-legend-of-korra-interview
Here are some of the highlights of the interview:
Cabbage Merchant’s Legacy Will Live On
Unfortunately, the beloved cabbage merchant (“My cabbages!!!”) will not be in the series. But, his image of crazed merchants will live on in one form or another. Good deal.
Katara and Aang Totally Did It!
Yep, it’s confirmed. Katara’s the mother of Tenzin, Aang’s son. I wonder how old he’ll be in the series? And with that the final nail goes in the Zutara coffin. Yippie!
But back to Katara, and the fact that she gave birth. If Tenzin’s around Korra’s age (which seems likely) then Katara would have given birth when she was… 67?! That can’t be right. Expect a full post on this development soon.
No Filler Episodes
And Michael and Bryan are writing all the episodes too! Great right? Here’s the problem. Avatar: The Legend of Korra is a mini-series. I’m not sure what exactly that means, but don’t expect this show to go on for three seasons. Hopefully we’ll get a solid season worth of material at least.
"As a mini-series, it's going to be really tight. While we really love the filler episodes, those are some of our favorites, this thing is just lean and mean. It's a really cool driving story." Micheal and Bryan.
As I said before, I highly recommend reading the full thing. It’s not an actual interview, but the author does write down everything he learned. Very informative.
