The show started in 2003. Most of the people who watched it as young kids are now in that prime college age demographic, so they probably feel it is a good time for a live action attempt?

This series going live action gives me a mega boner.
Unless they alter and castrate the source material.
Then it should be earth bent into a toilet.

Wakandan is you retarded? They already took Avatar live action once and it resulted in one of the WORST MOVIES EVER MADE.

Oh my bad, they took UHvatar live action.

I just got around to watching Avatar and finishing up on Korra right now. Was the last season of Korra rushed or something? There were like 3 recapish episodes in a row or something right in the middle of the season.

Don’t remember the specifics but iirc the budget got cut and the show was cancelled but the production staff wanted to give the series a proper ending. I also vaguely recall that the second half of the final season only aired on streaming over the internet and not TV? I could be completely making this up. It’s been a few years.

Nick stopped airing the show during Season 3 and the remainder of Season 3 and all of Season 4 were online only. Had no effect on the budget for Season 4 because it wasn't a cancellation and Season 4 was already pretty deep in production at that point.

They've been trying to continue/give Korra more of a wrap-up in comic form as well. The first 3 part comic dealt with the aftermath of the spirit portal in Republic City. The next comic is supposed to deal with Kuvira's trial.

Korra aired during the cord cutting blitz (2012-2014) when all TV ratings began tanking and the networks thought the shows were performing badly. But then they put streams up online and found the numbers were still there.

'Legend of Korra: Book 3' shift to digital explained at Comic-Con 2014 - Zap2it | News & Features
"It's part of this huge sea change in the industry," Konietzko says. "Things have changed just for us between when we did 'Avatar: [The Last Airbender]' ... and when we came back on the air in 2012 [with 'Legend of Korra']. When 'Book 1' of 'Korra' came out, it did pretty good numbers on TV, but its online numbers were just insane."

"Legend of Korra's" numbers have been down on Nickelodeon for "Book 3," but Konietzko says that they've only grown on Nick.com, the Nickelodeon app and on streaming services. The "Book 2" finale, for example, was the biggest digital hit on the channel's website of the year. That seems to be what convinced Nickelodeon to have the show live online.
