A Review Of The First Episode Of Nickelodeon UK's Brand New Nicktoon, "The Legend of Korra", Called "Welcome to Republic City"

Remember to watch the very first episode of the brand new Nicktoon "The Legend of Korra" TODAY at 9am (repeated at 10am on Nickelodeon+1) and at 4.30pm (replayed at 5.30pm on Nick+1), only on Nickelodeon UK and Ireland!

To celebrate and promote Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK starting to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand new original animated series "The Legend of Korra" from Sunday, 7th July 2013 at 9:00am (repeated at 10:00am on Nick UK's plus-one timeshift channel, Nick+1), the animation news website Toonzone has written a special article about what Nick UK fans and viewers can expect from the first episode of "Legend of Korra", titled "Welcome to Republic City", which you can read below!:
Review: “The Legend of Korra – Welcome to Republic City” UK Premiere

The prospect of making a sequel for a creator must be equal parts ecstatic and terrifying. People love that first story you told so much that both they and your sponsors have allowed you to have a chance to expand on it, to revisit the world you envisioned and extend it with new ideas. At the same time you’re at risk of soiling your reputation and the audience's memories if you make a mistake such as taking the story in a direction that’s so different it gets rejected. Worse, play it too safe and you'll be accused of making a rehash.

With all this potential stress, it’s all the more impressive that Avatar the Last Airbender creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko have produced such a fitting sequel in the form of The Legend of Korra.

A generation has passed since the adventures seen in Avatar the Last Airbender, with the trials of Aang and his friends now legends as much as they are history. Working together, Aang and Zuko managed to found Republic City as the centrepiece of a common vision to unite the nations. After Aang's passing, a new Avatar was born into the world in the form of Korra, a girl from the Southern Water Tribe.

From the opening moments, it's clear that this isn't the status quo the previous series ended with, though it certainly feels like a logical advancement for the Avatar world freed from war and steered by the pioneering of Aang and his allies. Although Korra’s Water Tribe village would feel at home in the previous series, the enormity hits home when the location switches to Republic City, with a feel of a steampunk driven 1930′s New York. It’s a bold change, but one that feels consistent both with the technology seen in the previous show and real world advancement (just look at how far things advanced in the last 100 years).

Rather than simply throw viewers into this new standing, there are a few reassuring anchors from the previous show, the biggest of which is an extended cameo from Katara. Now Aang’s widow, she has a hand in Korra’s training that shows she’s not forgotten the trials she went through on her own adventure. It’s a welcome return and hearing her briefly discuss the fates of her friends is sure to get you choked up.

Korra herself is really one of the lynchpins of this project. Aang’s story was about how he rejected the call to be a destined hero, and needed to partially atone for the world that was created in his absence. Korra takes a different path, though one that carries over influence. Whereas Aang effectively had to use guerrilla tactics, Korra is kept under the watchful eye of a network designed to train and support the Avatar. The result is that she finds herself stifling under a group that expects her to embody their vision of the role rather than grant her the freedom to personally discover what it means to be the Avatar and her role in the wider world. As a character, she’s a lot of fun. Being 17 as opposed to Aang’s 12, it’d be easy to write her as a cliché moody teenage girl, but the script is better than that. There’s discontent and rebellion in her heart but it’s borne out of a genuine desire to help people. Not to say she’s perfect, since her first day in Republic City is a comedy of errors. Janet Varney provides Korra with the perfect voice, sounding fresh to the world but not a country hick.

A key inverse of the two characters is that whilst Aang was "The Last Airbender," Korra has managed to grasp the other three more physical elements of Water, Earth, and Fire, but the spiritual Airbending eludes her. This leads her to train with Tenzin, Aang and Katara’s son who has inherited his father’s role as master of the Air Temple. Tenzin is voiced by J.K. Simmons, who most will recognise as the bombastic J. Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. His performance as Tenzin is more reserved, helping to paint the character as a wise master who still has his own quirks and challenges. Part of this comes from being a family man with a wife and three children (with a fourth on the way). The actual theme of family is well communicated in the short run time of this premiere. There’s an amusing sequence where Tenzin's wife Pema wishes she could have one child who didn't practice airbending, and prior to that a short sequence with Korra's parents manages to sell them as rich individuals in their own right. It’s pretty impressive that this descendant of Avatar can sell a recognisable heart to a character in seconds, while some series can fail to imbue characterisation after episodes of screen time.

Although the episode is primarily focussed on introducing the cast and the character conflicts, we do get seeds of something bigger. Primarily it seems the utopian vision of benders and non-benders in harmony may have gone off the rails somewhat, with benders using their powers to bully those without. This in turn leads to scattered mentions of revolutionaries opposed to the current system: an angle sure to be explored as the season goes on.

The animation is as full of life as it always has been including a high volume of hilarious facial expressions. A lot of shows today have really stiff animation, but with Avatar you can tell the storyboarders and animators are having a ball. Several moments are beautiful to look at, especially the sweeps of Republic City.

Of course we can’t forget the action which is also well animated and choreographed. The worst thing a fight scene can do is be telegraphed, making the motions so obvious it becomes boring. The action in Korra is much better thought out with a clever and surprising rhythm that is a joy to watch. A bending battle pursuit across the city is the premiere episode’s action highlight.

As the premiere of a new chapter in the saga of Avatar the Last Airbender, 'Welcome to Republic City' does a good job of both welcoming back old fans and creating an easy jump on point for new ones. You’ll probably get a bit more out of this episode if you’re a returning fan but everything is communicated well enough for anyone to grasp, with the era of Aang being treated much like the history of Roku was in the previous show. Fans have been waiting patiently for the series to arrive in the UK and at last it’s here.

She’s the Avatar. You gotta deal with it!

The Legend of Korra premieres on Nickelodeon UK 9:00am Sunday 7th July 2013.

The Legend Of Korra UK Release Month Announced – May

As I am sure most of you know, I have been in constant contact with Nick Uk about the Uk premiere of Korra (Yes, Uk/Ireland have not gotten Korra yet at all).

They, unlike Nick America, have actually been very helpful with their replies.

Last month I was told to message them this month and they would more than likely have news for me. Well just minutes ago I got the reply back and here is what they have to say.
Hi Morgan! Yes, we’ve got some good news for you – Avatar: The Legend of Korra starts on Nickelodeon here in the UK in May.

We’re really sorry for the delay, but we hope you’ll agree that the series was worth waiting for! We’ll be showing Book 1 to begin with, and although it’s a bit too soon to talk about Book 2, we hope that we’ll be able to show it fairly close to its US airdates. Can’t promise – we’ll have to see what happens. Fingers crossed!

I hope this answers your question, and that you enjoy the show.

All the best,

Ant
Nickelodeon!
So Korra premieres Uk and Ireland in May, I assume the exact date will be announced closer to the time. They mention Book 2 because I asked what their plan was for it, but as you can see all they know is that they will more than likely be able to show it around the same time as America. I.E Uk will have caught up on Korra and the Book 2 premiere will be more worldwide.

Note/ http://www.nick.co.uk/shows/avatar/

The Nick Uk site mentions May 12th at 9am as being the next Avatar thing on air, but there is no mention of this being Korra. It more than likely is May 12th though.

I asked about this on their site and here was the response
Hi Morgan! Ah, well spotted.. We don’t usually announce exact dates until a show is closer to transmission, but yes, that might be The Legend of Korra. J

We might still move it, so please don’t shout at us if it changes – but whatever happens it’ll definitely be on in May!
All the best,

Ant

Nickelodeon!
I for one am so glad to see Nick Uk telling me this, explaining their decisions and answering the fans. So May 12th may very well be the date, but if it is not then it is definitely May.

Great news for UK and Irish fans, thoughts ?
Also, from Hypable:
‘The Legend of Korra’: Season 1 will debut very soon in the U.K.

While most fans of The Legend of Korra are waiting hungrily for season 2 of the hit cartoon, Nickelodeon U.K. has revealed when season 1 will arrive for fans across the pond.

Nickelodeon U.K. has confirmed that season 1 of The Legend of Korra will begin airing in the U.K. and Ireland in May. The news comes from the enterprising Morgan Bannon of Avatar: The Last Airbender Online, who been querying the company for information on The Legend of Korra‘s U.K. air date for several months. The network responded to his most recent email with the new information, though they did not specify an exact date for the series’ premiere.

Regarding an eventual U.K. air date for the elusive season 2 of The Legend of Korra (for which, as fans across the globe will know, there is still no official release date) – Nickelodeon admitted that “it’s a bit too soon to talk about.” However, the network does “hope that we’ll be able to show [Book 2] fairly close to its US air dates.”

Whenever The Legend of Korra season 2 does eventually premiere in the US, we certainly hope that U.K. fans will not be forced to wait much longer before the show can been seen across the pond. Season 1 of The Legend of Korra first aired in April 2012, which will bring the wait for the U.K. to more than a year. Still, the responsiveness of Nickelodeon U.K. is heartening, and we can’t wait to see The Legend of Korra pick up a whole new swath of fans as season 1′s drama and excitement comes to tellys across the U.K.

The official website of The York Press, a local daily newspaper for communities in North and East Yorkshire, UK, and is based on the city of York, is reporting in the following article that Nickelodeon Movies star Nicola Peltz, who played Katara in M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" in 2010, which was a big screen live-action adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon original animated series (Nicktoon) "Avatar: The Last Airbender", has been cast as the lead female role in Paramount Pictures' upcoming sequel to their "Transformers" movie franchise, "Transformers 4", which will be directed by Michael Bay. IMDb is also reporting that Nicola Peltz will be playing the daughter of Mark Wahlberg and will be the go-to human for the Autobots. The York Press reports further on this news and reports, based on early plot outlines, she will be dating the arrogant race car driver played by Jack Reynor. The latest "Transformers" film, which is set after the events of the previous movie ("Transformers 3"), is due to begin filming in Michigan later this year (2013) and is scheduled for theatrical release in June 2014.

The up-and-coming actress has been confirmed for the lead female role in the Michael Bay-directed alien robot blockbuster, joining Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor.

Asked whether former 'Transformers' star Megan Fox might return for the forthcoming movie on Twitter, Bay responded: "No. Female lead has been cast. Nicola Peltz."

The 18-year-old actress previously starred in M. Night Shyamalan's 'The Last Airbender' in 2009, which was a big screen adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'.

Peltz is currently working on TV show 'Bates Motel', which is a loose prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's serial killer horror, 'Psycho', and follows the lives of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma.

Based on early plot outlines, it looks as though the actress will play the daughter of Wahlberg's character, who is dating the arrogant race car driver played by Reynor.

We have known for a while that Nicola Peltz has been cast in Transformers 4. She will be playing the daughter of Mark Wahlberg and will be the go-to human for the Autobots, now that Shia has decided to move on to greener pastures.

With that all said, this casting news has never been officially confirmed by the man himself, Michael Bay... until now via Bay’s twitter page:

“@lindazge: @s4te Tell us who already!” Nicola Peltz #nicolapeltz #transformers4

— Michael Bay Dot Com (@S4TE) March 26, 2013

Now that this has been done, let's just hope that this new Transformers will be as good as the first.

Is anyone excited for this movie to come out? If so, let us know why.

Until Next Time…
