Legend Of Korra Fans Discover New Easter Eggs After Netflix Release

The Legend of Korra

After the overwhelming popularity of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Netflix acquired its equally enjoyable but less beloved sequel series, The Legend of Korra. And after a shaky first run several years ago, fans are now warming up to the show at last as they share their discoveries and appreciation for it on Twitter.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the source material, The Legend of Korra takes place several decades after The Last Airbender during which Aang and his friends united the four nations into a single republic. After Aang dies, his spirit is reincarnated into a feisty waterbender named Korra who tries to navigate, protect and change the world that her predecessor has created.

When The Legend of Korra premiered on Nickelodeon, fans weren’t all that happy with it on the grounds that it wasn’t quite the same as The Last Airbender. Rather than focusing on a new Avatar, audiences wished the series’ creators would have stuck with the old cast and showed them how they matured. Although familiar faces do resurface in The Legend of Korra, they admittedly take a back seat to a new generation.

And that’s not all bad, because The Legend of Korra has a lot of great stuff going for it, which many fans are now only beginning to discover. From the voice acting talents of stars like Aubrey Plaza and subtle visual callbacks to The Last Airbender to the likability of Korra’s confrontational, cut-to-the-chase character, the series boasts an overwhelming number of sympathetic elements, and the fans are really digging them, as evidenced below.

At the time of the show’s release, many of these elements went unnoticed. And by the point that the production got to the fourth and final season, ratings were so low that Nickelodeon essentially forced the Avatar team off the network in spite of them still reaping massive rewards from syndicating The Last Airbender.

Fortunately for the creators though, The Legend of Korra has finally found a second home on Netflix, and they’re clearly not the only ones who are happy with that.
