Avatar: The Last Airbender
The Promise trilogy details the adventures of Avatar Aang and his friends soon after the Hundred Year War.
The Search focuses on Zuko and Azula as they search for their mother, Ursa, with Team Avatar accompanying them to keep the mentally unstable princess in check.
With the situation in Yu Dao stabilized, Avatar Aang tries to revive Yangchen’s Festival with the help of his friends and three Air Acolytes after experiencing a vision of Yangchen in which he was unable to hear her. Upon discovering that an Earthen Fire Refinery has been built on previously sacred Air Nomad lands, Aang needs to find a way to communicate with his predecessor and prevent an ancient spirit from exacting revenge against humanity. Meanwhile, Toph confronts her father, Lao, and finds herself at odds with Aang’s conservative nature.
Smoke and Shadow
In the Fire Nation, Iroh still awaits the return of Fire Lord Zuko, who is bringing home Ursa and her family for the first time since her banishment. However, the capital city faces a new uproar caused by the New Ozai Society, who aim to dethrone Zuko in favor of his father, forcing Zuko to protect his family against the legacy of Ozai.
North and South
When Aang leaves to aid Zuko with the Kemurikage, Katara and Sokka return to the Southern Water Tribe by themselves. Katara is shocked to find that her beloved village has become a bustling city, with none other than their father, Hakoda, in charge! A northerner named Malina seems to be behind this change, pushing the North and South to be more unified . . . but what are her true goals?
Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph return to Earthen Fire Industries—the factory owned by Toph’s father—and they find that the once-small town of Cranefish is now booming. Expecting a warm welcome, Aang is surprised when their arrival is met with disinterest and even open hostility. At a business council meeting, the reason for the slight becomes clear: A massive bender versus non-bender conflict has gripped the town’s inhabitants and is threatening to turn violent!

The Legend of Korra
Following their trip to the Spirit World, Korra and Asami Sato discover that Republic City has fallen into a state of utter chaos. In the aftermath of the devastation caused by the battle with Kuvira’s forces and the opening of a spirit portal in the middle of the city, a developer has moved to turn the portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In addition, the triads have realigned and are in open conflict at the city’s borders where hundreds of evacuees have relocated. In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other but must first discover how to work better as a team.
Ruins of the Empire
Korra must decide who to trust as the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance! On the eve of its first elections, the Earth Kingdom finds its future endangered by its past. Even as Kuvira stands trial for her crimes, vestiges of her imperial ambitions threaten to undermine the nation’s democratic hopes. But when Korra, Asami, Mako, and Bolin do not all see eye-to-eye as to the solution, drastic measures will be taken to halt a new march to war!
