This Is My Brain Right Now
It is not a friendly place to be.
Also to anyone who happens to care (namely, fans of the Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon), the creators are looking to wash away the horrific stench of Shamalamalon by creating a new companion series to the show! (or a mini-series. Or one-off movie. details are still sketchy). It's called Avatar: The Legend of Korra and it takes place 70 years after the original series and focuses on the next Avatar, a spunky teenage girl named Korra from the Southern Water Tribe who travels to what's supposed to be this kick-ass steampunk metropolis called Republic City to learn airbending from Aang's son, Tenzin.
Once there Korra becames embroiled in stopping criminals and anti-bending revolutionaries. So basically she's like Batman, if he were a teenage girl who could kill you with nature. AWESOME. This is the only promotional photo so far:
The series is expected to premier sometime next year, you'll know when you hear the high-pitched squeal of joy from Avatar dorks the world over. For more info, an interviews with the show's creators and a hilarious moment where they try really hard not to openly express their thinly-veiled hatred for the movie, go here...I cant feel my left eye anymore. Is that bad? I hope not. 'Night!
Interviewer: "What did you guys think of the live-action version of “The Last Airbender”?"
Konietzko: "We’re just really focused on this new show right now, and kind of taking this off in its own direction and not concerning ourselves with that right now."
