    I'll be checking this one out. I never watched the animated series, but am interested in the story. If it's good, maybe they'll even do a live-action Legend of Korra series.

    Watch the animated series you won't regret it.

    It's the best animated series of all time in my opinion.

    Really glad to hear that Zuckerman is on board, it just wouldn't be the same without his music.

    I'm showing the animated series to my niece for the first time. She's really enjoying it. Funny, I was wondering how this Netflix series was coming along just a few hours ago while we were watching an episode. Hopefully it has a 2020 release, at the very latest.

    I've watched this series a couple of times, it's one of my all time favorites. I remember seeing the first live action trailer for the M. Night film. Man, I was so excited. Because this series has the potential to be big. Man, that film was a massive let down.

    But I'm optimistic for this series. Glad they have the original creators behind this, as well as the original composer. The musical score is a big part of the series, like John William's is to Star Wars.

    I'm curious if they will keep Aang a 12 year old boy, or bump his age up? Really curious to see who they cast in these roles.

    I just discovered this series for the first time on Netflix. I've been binging it the past couple of weeks and almost done with it. What a fantastic series and what a royal F*** UP Shyamalan was for screwing this up so bad. The material was all laid out for him to easily adapt and its almost like he went out of his way to make it bad. This show is so rich and well written.

    I know everything is on pause right now with Covid but I hope Netflix is still moving forward with this live-action tv series. That could be Netflix next Stranger Things if done right.

    The original show is most likely in my top 10 shows of all time, it's just that good.
    I remember when the first trailer for the movie dropped and I was so hyped, only to be majorly disappointed in the end lol. Really curious about this new show, lets hope for the best.

    It's Appa ;)

    About to finish the series and I'm actually kind of upset I didn't get to watch it when I was younger.

    Kinda hoping the live action series is a proper sequel series instead of what Korra ended up being.

    I think the Word going around is that the Netflix show will be a retelling of the original show.

    I liked Korra as a sequel series (though a slow start) but maybe with a proper Aang series in between of his years as an adult.

    Whatever Netflix does I hope they do it right.

    It is good but different from Last Air Bender. There are a few plots that drag on and at times it seems to wander about.

    I love korra! Maybe I even love it more than the last airbender? It’s so hard because the quality level is so high

    honestly this is what I want, I dont get wanting to do a retelling, ill watch it because i enjoyed the animated series, but a proper sequel series with Aang has me FAR more interested.

    I don't know how he sounds off of Kim's Convienence where his character has an accent but I think he could do a good General Iroh.
