Fresh from its presentation at ComiCon, the new Airbender series, “The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra” has been released! One of my other (older) vices aside from Steampunk are martial arts movies, so when the original Airbender series premiered, having young one in the household was a perfect pretense for watching this innovative series (and just watching martial art fights). After its completion, there was talk of a new series, which was to take place eighty years after the completion of the original series, and contain a heavy dose of Steampunk (or at least an approximation of it). After watching the trailer, it seems to have more of a Dieselpunk leaning, but the airships certainly did bring a smile when I saw them hovering over the city! The jury is out regarding how “Steampunk” the new production will be, but nonetheless, one can hope to see a good amount of steam technology in it (along with, yes, more martial arts)! Please do enjoy!
