So I'm not sure if anyone is with me on this, but the title to our new miniseries is rather lacking. It's a continuation of the British name of the series, which is all well and good on that side of the pond, but I'd rather we have something a little more original and less generic. And since the press release did state that this is a working title, there's still hope that it will change.

I don't actually have much faith that fans could come up with something better than the staff, but it's something to pass the time. The best I could come up with is Avatar: Republic City. Which is itself none too impressive, but I still like it better than what we've got.

Thoughts? Ideas?

I like the title, and the symmetry. But nothing is set in stone, so it certainly might change.

But it's not symmetrical, unless you live in England.

Yeah... what's wrong with the title exactly?  It looks just fine to me.  I think it's just as likely that the name of Republic City will change, which I actually like less than the series title.

Although if I was in the UK I would have wanted a more original title, not a-- er, symmetrical one.
A: The Legend of Aang, then A: The Legend of Korra?  Yawn...

If I had to, Avatar: (The Legend of Korra who coincidentally needed to find...) Another Last Airbender

Or go "Monster Movie vibe" with Avatar: Son of The Last Airbender

It isn't confirmed. Look at the press release, it says "working title".

Edit -- They could still keep "The Legend of Korra" as the title, but the (working title) bit indicates that there's a possibility that they could change it before the show comes out.

Legend of Korra is fine.  What needs to change is Republic City.  What a terrible terrible name.

Even if they change the title, keep the "Legend of" in it, I like that.

Really? It fits right along with Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom.


I just think "Legend of" is horribly overdone and generic at this point. It's like admitting that you had trouble coming up with a decent name.

I'm mad I didn't think of that one.

Personally, I like the "Legend of" part. It makes it sound like a classic story, and, IMHO, Avatar should be regarded  as a modern classic.

Whatever they go with, it'll need longjectivity if they plan to continue past one season. In other words, unless the entire series is about this city or about its anti-benders (or both), including "city" or "rebels" will be an insufficient title. It'd be like A:TLA being called Avatar: Journey to the Northern Watertribe. Sure, it works for the first season. But it'd make no sense at all for season 2-3. They could have a different title per season, but that would just be ridiculous.

I'm tired of the "Legend of" trope name myself. Just google "the Legend of" (with quote marks); you'll see just how many series use it. Runner up being "The Chronicles of". I like The Last Airbender because it's unique, and vague while being telling. You know off the bat what it's about (the last Airbender ofc). Everything else about the show can work from there.

However, the one thing I do like about it is how it solidly clarifies that this series is about Korra, not Aang. Any other generic title (that doesn't include a mention of a new avatar or Korra specifically) doesn't communicate that. If you just label it "Avatar: City of Shadows", people wont know (until they watch it) that it doesn't revolve around the GAang.

Forget to mention in my practically useless reply that:

don't forget that this is a show aimed for kids.  Legend of Korra sounds MUCH more awesome than Republic City.  I can't imagine a 10 year old boy telling his mom, "Oh boy mom!  Republic City is almost on!  Can I watch it?!  Can I, can I???!!!"
