After a much-anticipated return, Nickelodeon will premiere The Legend of Korra Book 3: Change this Friday, June 27, at 7p.m. (ET/PT) with two back-to-back episodes – “A Breath of Fresh Air” and “Rebirth” followed by a special bonus episode, “The Earth Queen.” Brand-new episodes will continue rolling out every Friday at 8p.m. (ET/PT) beginning July 11.
The first two episodes follow the events of Harmonic Convergence, and Avatar Korra discovers that her decision to leave the spirit portals open has unexpected consequences. Wild spirit vines have overgrown Republic City and Airbenders are suddenly popping up across the four nations. Korra, Tenzin and Team Avatar search for new Airbenders in an effort to recruit them and rebuild the Air Nation. Meanwhile, a band of sinister criminals are organizing to hunt down the Avatar themselves.
The Legend of Korra – Book Two: Spirits Blu-ray and DVD, created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, will be available July 1. Also, for a limited time, watch all of the Korra episodes for free on nick.com now, which also includes special interviews and exclusive content.
The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender and follows the next Avatar after Aang – a girl named Korra (Janet Varney) who is from the Southern Water Tribe. Book 3: Change continues the journey of Korra, a 17-year-old headstrong and rebellious girl who continually challenges and bucks tradition on her quest to become a fully realized Avatar in a world where benders are under attack.
