Are you anxious to watch the sequel to the beloved Nickelodeon animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender? During Nickelodeon's annual upfront presentation (held on March 14th previewing 650 episodes of new content to the TV industry), the premiere date for the re-titled series, The Legend of Korra, was announced!

The Legend of Korra, in which the mythology of the beloved animated franchise from Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko continues. The series centers around a new Avatar named Korra, a 17-year-old headstrong and rebellious girl who continually challenges and bucks tradition on her quest to become a fully realized Avatar in a world where benders are under attack. The half-hour series will debut on Saturday, April 14, at 11:00 a.m. (all times ET/PT), as part of Nickelodeon's Saturday morning block (8AM-Noon), which has been the number-one destination for Kids 2-11 for 12 consecutive years and currently delivers more than three million total viewers each week. The Legend of Korra will air regularly on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.

Along with that announcement a new trailer was released:

If this is not enough to get you pumped up and ready for April 18 then maybe some of the development art will do the trick (below). Are you excited to enter the gates of Republic City and witness the latest Avatar's journey?

Yay! It's a good thing I got cable last month. Nickelodeon change a lot since the last I watched the channel or channels. I'm all hyped to watch Korra!

Wonder if I'll be able to watch all of the first series before this starts, that's a lot of episodes. I've watched quite a bit before, but it's been a while and I caught episodes from all over the series while it was on TV, so I kinda need to watch the whole thing properly from the beginning.

This is exciting though, the show looks great from the clips and trailers I've seen so far. I bet a lot of people will be watching this.

Really excited about Korra, but I'll have to wait till the show is out on DVD as I don't get Nickelodeon.

I think the leak might kill some of the hype their looking for but meh.

Not as good as the first series (right now) but it's still pretty entertaining.
