This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. Today we focus on the stories setting.
So how will Book 2 of The Legend of Korra pan out? I personally feel that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra won’t be as much focused in Republic City as Book 1 was. And if this is the case, I’ll be ecstatic. It’s not that I have something against Republic City, I personally though that the idea of a steam-punked city in the Avatar World was fantastic. But Mike and Bryan have shown us a lot of the new city, and in case you may have forgotten, there is much more to the Avatar World than Republic City.
Whatever happened to Ba Sing Se and the Earth Kingdom? Or the Western Air Temple? Only Mike and Bryan know how the rest of the Avatar World has changed in so many years, and I’d be pretty intrigued to see it for myself.
I have pretty much made up my mind that The Last Airbender is a better series than The Legend of Korra (In my opinion of course). The one thing The Legend of Korra lacked that The Last Airbender had was the element of adventure. In The Last Airbender, Team Avatar went on so many different adventures, literally traveling the entire world. I personally felt that the constantly changing setting was quite refreshing. Unfortunately, in Book 1 of The Legend of Korra, Korra traveled to Republic City, then…no where else.
The Avatar World is truly amazing, and its unfortunate that we didn’t get to see much of it in Book 1 of The Legend of Korra. But Mike and Bryan aren’t stupid. They did, in fact, create the Avatar World. They know how amazing it is, and I think they will share more of it with us this time around.
I’m predicting that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will be set in a mix between Republic City and the outside Avatar World. I think they we as fans will get to see a more developed Be Sing Se or Omashu in Book 2, but I don’t expect to see a steam-punked Air Temple as those would have likely remained the same.
Because Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is 14 episodes (2 more than Book 1), we have to assume that the season’s plotline will be more extensive. 14 more episodes of just Republic City would be…boring. I think one of the things that could give the show some more kick is a slight variation in setting, mostly because the Avatar World is just that cool.
Bottom Line Prediction: Book 2 will be set in Republic City and the outside Avatar World (half and half).
