Lost My Heart in Republic City

but lost my mind in college. Haha, I apologize for the late update, but these past seven weeks have been hectic and probably won’t calm down until the end of the semester. Until then, The Legend of Korra will be premiering on April 14, 2012 but if we can reach another 100,000 likes and shares for Korra Nation the premiere will be released earlier. You will need either Facebook or Twitter to contribute. As soon as the videos are up on Nick’s website they will be available on Firebender for your enjoyment.

Nick recently published a press release website for Korra containing more information about the series, character biographies, and high quality press images for download.

Synopsis for the premiere:

In the premiere episode, “Welcome to Republic City,” Korra leaves the safety of her home and travels to bustling Republic City to begin her airbending training.   Once there, she is shocked to find a big city full of dangers, including criminal bending gangs and a vocal anti-bending revolution.  In episode two, “A Leaf in the Wind,” Korra is living with her airbending teacher Tenzin on Air Temple Island.  Frustrated with her inability to master airbending, she turns her attentions to Republic City’s famous Pro-bending Arena.  There she befriends two brothers, Mako (David Faustino) and Bolin (P.J. Byrne), who compete in professional bending matches.  Korra is immediately drawn to Pro-bending’s dynamic fighting style.

 

Hold on until April 1

Starting today, fans can work to unlock an exclusive sneak peek of The Legend of Korra premiere at korranation.com.  Beginning April 1, fans may log on to nick.com for an interactive experience and introduction to Republic City.  Show information, fun facts, micro games and additional new content make up this “Welcome to Republic City” online experience.  Also leading up to the television series premiere, Xbox users will have the opportunity to download the first episode and trailer for free and purchase episodes from Avatar: The Last Airbender.  The first The Legend of Korra episode will be available on VOD.  In conjunction with the series premiere, Nick’s mobile channel NIMO, will have a live simulcast of the first two episodes.

Firebender will be undergoing a few renovations this summer. I plan on writing a php script that will allow users to easily search through graphics for a specific character. Also, I’ll be designing a new layout in the summer. If you have any suggestions feel free to shoot me an email, I’m open to ideas!
