Which "Legend of Korra" character would be perfect for a Spin-Off series? Movie release might be in the cards
There's been a lot of speculation about "The Legend of Korra" getting a potential spin-off series. Some have wondered if NIckelodeon might continue the show, or if Netflix might pick the series up for new episodes, or even if a live-action film might be in the cards.
And in all of those options, there's something to note. If this really is a "spin-off" in the true sense of the word, it can't actually be about Korra. It has to be an actual spin-off.
So with that in mind, we're wondering: just which character deserves that kind of spin-off?
There are plenty of options in mind. Latin Times put out a list of the characters they think most deserve their own show. And it runs more or less like a list of all the important "Korra" characters who aren't Korra. Latin Post thought that Mako and Bolin, Asami, Tenzin's kids, Eskah and Desna, Iroh or the original (and now grown-up) team from "Avatar: The Last Airbender" would be suitable series fare.
And while most of those would work (well, Asami wouldn't- if this is a real spin-off, Korra shouldn't be a main character, and being in a relationship with Asami pretty much means she would be), they're not the most creative group.
There's also more obscure Korra characters that haven't gotten much love, like Hundun- the villain from the "Legend of Korra" game that was released last year. As noted by Spike, Hundun is a character with considerable power who was contained within the spirit world- definitely a solid character to feature in a spin-off.
But neither of these options are the ideal. Really, if a "Legend of Korra" spin-off series is ever going to really work, it can only be about one character.
It's the only thing that makes sense. Audiences (like those at USA Today) absolutely loved the idea of ending the show with Korra in a same-sex relationship. Focusing on her and Asami's future child would allow Korra and Asami to stay in the series, but in a minor supporting role. And, just as importantly, if Korra was still alive, her daughter couldn't be the Avatar, which means the series would finally have a non-Avatar protagonist.
"The Legend of Korra" might never get a spin-off, despite all the love from fans. But if it does, this idea's probably the way to go.
