    No such thing as swamp benders. They were waterbenders. Even the seaweed monster bent the water in plants.

    Bumi showed up for like 2 seconds in the last episode. He yelled and sounded kind of crazy. And that was it.

    Looking for graphic artist to draw simple pictures. PM me for details. (For now the position is filled. You can still PM me.)

    Those swamp benders didn't have diverse parents from the water and earth nation anyway. I'm pretty sure they were inbred.

    I always wondered why the swamp people agreed to be part of the eclipse invasion. They probably didn't even know there WAS a war going on, much less have any incentive to fight for some people they didn't really even know.

    Meh, maybe a strong sense of honour within sister and brother tribes. They did call Katara and her water tribe a sister tribe iirc? Could have been brother tribe. Doesn't matter.

    Lol I love the way they say "half" for the locations. It's only 14 total episodes...

    Let's see what happens.

    Firstly, we’re gonna be getting a sub-bending form of airbending! Kisu said it was going to blow our minds. MY MIND IS READY TO BE BLOWN. Also, he totally knows who Lin’s daddy is, but he was tight-lipped, so we’re gonna find out soon enough I’m sure. Then when someone asked about who they would cast in a Korra movie, Sifu refused to say anything and he said we’d see why later…I’m not sure how I’d feel about a Korra movie. Steve said he wouldn’t want one done.

    Pfft HAHA!

    The idea of a LoK movie is hilarious. Seeing how bad TLA was... God, that would be funny to see.

    Considering the last movie, and the awful romance book 1 had, I'd say a Korra movie would basically be Twilight except with benders...

    The Legend of Core-uh

    Mako: "Hi, I'm Mako. I come off as a bit of a jerk and a little broody at times, but that's okay because my parents are deeeeaaaddd... Just ignore my brother, who happens to have the exact same history as me, and is the happiest bastard on the face of this planet..."

    Core-uh: *Blank stare* ... *Sploosh* (She's basically getting hot an' bothered at this point)
    I AM the world's first Shadow Mage.

    To be fair though, the TLA movie was mostly bad because of M. Night Shyamalan. Also, there was just so much story to be told if the goal of the movie was to follow the story of TLA. What would have worked better in that case would have been to have the movie plot be some new adventure that took place sometime after the events of the series.

    But, if done right with a better director, a movie could work. /shrug

    There was too much content for a movie.

    Agreed, but his idea was to make 3 movies which is something that Hollywood would be willing to green-light assuming the first one went well.

    If he was to break each movie into two parts to cover all the content, that would be 6 movies total...way too much. A:TLA isn't Harry Potter :P

    I believe it was doable. The majority of episodes in the books could be considered "filler-style" and you could freely skip half of them without missing out on any critical characters or storylines. Just look at Book 1 alone - Imprisoned, Winter Solstice Part 1, The Great Divide, The Fortuneteller, Northern Air Temple...alright so some of those had some really important bits, but one could easily take just most crucial bits out of those episodes and skip the rest.

    A good director (and a decent cast) could've done it in 2.5 hours.

    Not really. M. Night just had no idea what he was doing.

    This was exactly the problem. M. Night Shyamalan is just a terrible director. Even for the content he did fit into the movie, he screwed it up royally. Take the Fire Nation attack on the Northern Water Tribe for example. In the series, this was an awesome display of the power of the Avatar State, when the moon spirit was killed and Aang became that monstrous water creature . In the movie? Just... I can't even describe how badly he handled that.
