The Problem Fans Have With Katara In The Legend Of Korra

Avatar: The Last Airbender sequel series The Legend of Korra has been off the air since , yet the series has enjoyed a recent uptick in interest thanks to its new streaming life on Netflix. The show is set some odd years after the war with the Fire Nation reached its conclusion, and features a new cast around the latest incarnation of the Avatar, a waterbender from the South Pole named Korra voiced by Janet Varney. Although many of the principal characters from the beloved original series passed in the intervening decades between the two shows, some are still alive and thriving — including three members of the original Team Avatar: Zuko Bruce Davison , Katara Eva Marie Saint , and Toph Philece Sampler. In a bold — and ultimately effective — decision, series creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko elected to pass the narrative torch to the new characters instead of leaning too heavily on the established relationships viewers forged with the original cast. Zuko, Katara, and Toph all dip in and out of the storyline at different moments to play relatively minor roles without ever really stealing the spotlight from the young cast around Korra. Although Legend of Korra largely benefits from this creative choice, even the relatively small contributions made by the original characters have sparked quite a bit of fan discussion.
