From the creators and executive producers of hit series Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra continues the evolution of the beloved franchise and follows the adventures of the next Avatar – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water and Fire), Korra seeks to master Air. Her quest leads her to Republic City, the modern “Avatar” world that is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. Korra quickly discovers that the metropolis is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip the city apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
In “The Spirit of Competition,” Korra and her pro-bending teammates, Mako and Bolin, struggle to work together after romantic rivalries shake their foundation.
The Legend of Korra airs Saturdays at 11 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
