Avatar Aang Could Have a Big Role in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra

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?

    Excellent post today! I think it would be amazing for Avatar Aang to have a more prominent role in the series. It makes so much sense when I think about it now. Cant wait for the show to return now!

      Thank you, Nico.

      I hadn't posted good, solid speculation in almost a week so I wanted to make sure that I had some more content for you guys quickly. I always had this thought in my head, and I mentioned it once or twice in past posts, but I never published content solely based on this idea.

      Thanks for the comment!

    Sorry to bother you yet again but I was just wondering if you think that we will see any flashbacks of Mako and Bolins past. I was also wondering if you think General IRoh 2.9 will show up.

      Never thought about Mako/Bolin flashbacks. That might be awesome. I think I'll write a post about it in the near future :)

      As for Iroh 2.0, I do have reason to believe that he will show up in the third or fourth episode. I wrote an article on it a little while back, check it out: http://avatarthelegendofkorra.wordpress.com/2012/

      Hope that helps!

    aang: korra you seem like a good girl now, so here all the knowldge on the spirit world
    (spirit bending)
    korra: thank aang, that was fast.

  • Avatar Edwin

    Well I think that Anng will help out Korra like Avater Ruko helped out anng so their should be no promble just that Korra can't use any bending in the spirt word that will be a hard for her.

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorra.wordpress.com AdminAvatar

      Agreed. Korra will likely freak out once she realizes she can't bend in the spirit world.

    I think all the Avatar fans want to see more avatar Aang. What happened to him after the 100 year war. What happened to Sokka, what happened to Zuko and Toph. I think the should show what happened to them after the war during the avatar Korra's journey by the spritual world.

      There are graphic novels dealing with what happened to Aang after defeating the Pheonix King
