The Wall Street Journal
has the first good look at Korra, the heroine from The Last Airbender
sequel series Legend of Korra
, because apparently nerdy websites just aren't good enough to reveal nerdy news any more. Sigh. The Legend of Korra
, as you'll recall, is due on Nickelodeon sometime next year.The WSJ
also revealed the cast
Janet Varney as KORRA
Kiernan Shipka as JINORA
Daniel Dae Kim as HIROSHI SATO
David Faustino as MAKO
Sheychelle Gabriel as ASAMI
Lance Hendrickson as LIEUTENANT
JK Simmons as TENZIN
Well, Lance Henrikson and J.K. Simmons are always awesome, but David "Bud from Married with Children" Faustino as Mako? Color me skeptical, but obviously, the Airbender
show-runners have earned more than enough trust that I'll forgo my traditional doom-saying and just be happy we finally got a good pic of the main heroine. Wee! Thanks to Kyle S. for the tip.
