Avatar: The Last Airbender was an animated series that ran on Nickelodeon for four seasons from 2005 to 2008. It was followed by a sequel, The Legend of Korra, which also ran for four seasons from 2012 to 2014. The franchise was both commercially successful and critically acclaimed. It has been nominated for and won several awards, including Annie Awards, Genesis Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, a Daytime Emmy Award, and a Peabody Award.
It is set in a world that is divided into four nations based on the four elements of nature: the Water Tribes - which are located at the North and South Poles - the Fire Nation, the Earth Nation, and the Air Nomads. (As the name suggests, the Air Nomads had a nomadic society. However, they also operated out of four temples located in four corners of the world: the Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western Air Temples). Many people have the ability to manipulate one of the four elements. This practice is known as bending. Only one person, known as the Avatar, can bend all four elements.
