After the critical disaster that was The Last Airbender live-action movie in 2010, Avatar fans are anxious about the idea of Korra hitting the big screen. However, thanks to Paramount Animation, a feature-length Korra film may be a very real possibility.
According to IGN, Paramount’s relatively new animation division has recently hired seven writers to take on new projects, some of which are to be shepherded by Mary Parent and J.J. Abrams. Brad Grey, the Paramount chief, is also reportedly in talks with Nickelodeon for the properties of animated shows and games, including The Legend of Korra!
Budgets for these films are aimed at below $100 million. Think Despicable Me or the latest Ice Age movie as cost comparisons.
Since this is supposed to be an animated feature, it’s predicted that if it gets the green light, it will be a continuation of the TV series rather than a retelling like The Last Airbender was.
What do you think? Would you like to see an animated Korra movie? Or would you prefer a live-action one? Should there even be a Korra movie at all? Share your thoughts in a comment below!
