The Legend of Korra is The Last Airbender’s sequel. The Last Airbender ended in 2008 and there was no part 2. It took a few years for fans to get a chance to return to the world. M. Night Shyamalan released a live-action movie a few months later but it was not that great. Fans did not like the movie as compared to the series.
The Legend of Korra delivered more bending content in the quality fans expected. It became a massive hit soon after its release. The animated series is a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Here’s everything you need to know about the connection.
The Legend of Korra and The Last Airbender’s Connection!
The Legend of Korra follows Korra, Aang’s successor as the Avatar, 70 years after the Last Airbender events. The Legend of Korra revolves around Korra’s adventures and shows us how everything has changed since Aang’s time. It also introduces a wide variety of new characters. Additionally, the series brings back some familiar ones as well.
Aang, Katara, Toph, and Zuko return in their elderly versions and to guide their successors. The show introduces Aang and Katara’s children as adults. Tenzin is their eldest son and plays a big role in the series. The Air Nomad trains Korra to fulfill her legacy as the greatest Airbender. It also brings a calming presence to her life along.
The prolific and Oscar-winning actor, J.K. Simmons has given his voice for Tenzin in The Legend of Korra. Simmons’s voice makes Tenzin sound much wiser than he already is.
Is Tenzin really Swearing at Everyone?
A twitter user, named FelixCadalin edited Tenzin’s voice and it has completely reversed his demeanor. The twitter user has used moments and quotes from Simmons’ other work. The edited video below shows Tenzin swearing at Korra and other characters from the show.

Tenzin’s new dialogue is pulled from Simmons’ Oscar-winning performance in Whiplash. In Whiplash, we saw Simon in another mentor/teacher role. His personality is no more different from that of Tenzin. In Whiplash, Simmons plays the character Fletcher, an angry music instructor. In the film, he berates the film’s lead young drummer Andrew (Miles Teller), and many others with verbal insults.
The twitter user-edited Tenzin dialogues with Simmons Whiplash’s outbursts. It is quite funny to hear the Whiplash quotes come out of Tenzin. Some of the dialogues even work quite well with the scenes chosen.
Tenzin might not be as famous as his father was, but probably now more audiences will discover the character. Also, since The Legend of Korra’s streaming on Whiplash, the platform has seen a resurgence in Avatar: The Last Airbender’s popularity.
For those who have not yet seen the series but have watched the above video, they are in for a treat. Tenzin’s actual personality will be even more startling to them.
We will bring more insights very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for all the latest updates!
