'Want to see Korra and Asami get married'

Many are looking forward to the popular Korra-Asami Sato ship coming into life on screen. Asami is a bisexual character from the series. In the final moments of 'The Legend of Korra' Season 4, Episode 13 (titled 'The Last Stand'), Korra and Asami hold hands and head into the Spirit World after the show's biggest battle, confirming they had feelings for each other. The co-creators took to Tumblr to confirm that the pair were embarking upon a lesbian relationship, thus making Korra the first out LGBTQ+ character to lead a children's cartoon.

"I want a series where korra and asami just keep awkwardly running into all of the girls asami dated when korra was gone and trying to figure herself out and each time they look more and more like korra," said another. "We’ll see Korra and Asami again!! As a couple!! Animated!!' said a tweet.

'A new firebender outfit'

The excitement around incoming added lore to the series was felt throughout Twitter, as fans fantasized about what awaits them in the upcoming theatrical release. "Avatar the Last Airbender ADDED LORE incoming through tv shows and movies! I would like to see an Adult Aang series as well as the Future of Korra." "WHAAA I am HERE for this, Korra is better than people give it credit for, and with them having learned from some mistakes on that show, with their own studio we could see some AWESOME stuff. Normally I'm not super hot on sequels, but Avatar's world is SO INTERESTING," said another. Some fans looked forward to a new firebender outfit. "I hope that new Korra content features a firebender outfit," said a fan.

"It's fascinating that putting avatar on netflix singlehandedly revived its popularity considering the series went kind of stagnant after korra ended. i think it'd be nice to have more stories in the avatar universe as long as they aren't like, reboots," said a tweet, while another said, "I really hope this resurgence will also make people love Korra more like maybe more things in the ATLA universe will make ppl realize korra is an addition to the universe not just a remake." "I foresee a lot of the same production problems that korra had though lol," noted another, referring to Korra's production hurdles from start to finish — for being too “risky”.
