Next Avatar Announced Soon! Earth Bending Twins?
I think it’s safe to say that Avatar: The Last Air Bender and Legend of Korra fans were blown away by the final season, even more so by the final moments of the last episode! However I, like most other fans, have been dead inside without news of another Avatar show in the works with Nickelodeon. The show runners themselves, Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino have said time and again that this was their final Avatar show which hurts my heart to hear but of course, it would be better to see the series stop on a good note rather than be dragged out until it is terrible.
This is not stopping the fans of the show from throwing ideas around for the next Avatar, on various forums fans discuss who exactly would be the next master of all elements. I will warn you ahead of time that the forum can be a nerd rage inducing place, so proceed with caution.
Especially when people say that Kyoshi wasn’t an Avatar when clearly she was, what kind of show were they watching that casual bastard. They debate on the lore of the series and whether or not there would even be a next Avatar after the rough events Korra had experienced. While none of this information comes from the creators, they used these forums to gather inspiration and ideas from their fan base in order to produce a show true to the fans. So in a way, you could say that if the flame wars cease and fans come to a consensus, the possibility of it becoming canon might increase.
So far, there are a number of ideas being tossed around, my favorite at the moment is the idea of twins, as stated by VC Post
Fans are also deeming to have a twin avatar, and it will be an offspring of a fire-and-earth-bending couple, and they will be going against each other! They are named Vin and Khan. Let’s see if the creators would take a grip onto this idea. Via
I honestly do hope that the show’s creators take note of the fans and their love of Avatar and decide to roll out some kind of content, if it’s not a full blown show then it could potentially be a novel, comic book, video game etc. Anything canon would be better than living life wondering what could be and participating in Fan Fic to feed our addiction. A new Avatar would be quite interesting seeing as though the jump in technology from Avatar: The Last Air Bender and Legend of Korra was animal transportation to motorized vehicles and trains. Would this new generation be born into a full blown industrial age with absolutely no bending or would it take place somewhat in the near future due to Korra dying unexpectedly? Personally, I think a whole new world drenched in technology would be fascinating to watch, especially if the next Avatar is a twin. Another question gets raised about some of the situations in Legend of Korra, I’ll try not to give any spoilers but Korra being a mentor would be amazing to see as Aang became so wise and peaceful while Korra was incredibly rough around the edges.
I digress! What do you Avatar fans wish to see from the next Avatar? Do you think having them be a twin would be a great idea? What of the world? Should the series continue or should it remain untouched for now? Write all your thoughts in the comments below!
