Since Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is titled ‘Spirit’, it has been well known that The Spirit World will be very important to Book 2’s plot line. Avatar Korra has already mastered the physical side of being the Avatar, but she must still master the spiritual side. This will likely result in a few episodes devoted specifically to The Spirit World.
In case you may have forgotten, Avatar Aang’s first trip to The Spirit World was full of a lot of confusion and fear. At the time, Aang was a novice to The Spirit World, and thus he needed a bit of guidance. So to help Aang out, Avatar Roku was introduced: he helped guide Aang on his quests in The Spirit World as well as his journey to becoming a fully realized Avatar.
When Korra enters The Spirit World in Book 2, there is no question that she will also feel a bit confused. She will likely feel alone and powerless against the elements before her, but I think Korra will soon realize that she’s not as alone as she may anticipate. Just as Avatar Roku helped Avatar Aang, I believe that Avatar Aang will help guide Avatar Korra.
I believe that Aang will likely be seen throughout Book 2 guiding Korra through The Spirit World while trying to help unlock her spiritual side, as well.
If Aang does indeed have a larger role in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, we may be in for a nice treat.
During the course of Book 1, we learned little about Avatar Aang from the time that he ended the 100 Year War to the time he died. I think that it’s safe to say that most Avatar Fans are genuinely interested to hear what happened to Team Avatar during the down time.
If Avatar Aang does have a larger role in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mike and Bryan decided to use Aang’s character to shed some light on all the missed time.
In case you don’t remember, one episode of The Last Airbender was devoted to the life of Avatar Roku. It showed Roku from a teenager all the way up until he was killed partly because of Fire Lord Sozin. This was without-a-doubt one of my favorite episodes in the series, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Book 2 contained a similar episode with Avatar Aang being the focus instead.
Introducing Avatar Aang as a prominent role in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra would most definitely make the show a bit more entertaining; the more prominent the role, the more entertaining the Book. But we’ll just have to wait and see how Mike and Bryan officially decide to include Aang in Book 2.
So what do you think: Will we see more of Avatar Aang during the course of Book 2? If so, in what way?
