Mumbai (UNI): Nick, the TV channel for kids, is bringing out a new show for kids-Avtar the legend of Aang. Avatar featuring on Nick from May 16, will be telecast from Monday to Friday at 1700 hours.
Avatar, the master of all four elements - earth, fire, air and water, was the only one who could stop the ruthless Fire Nation from conquering the world. But when the world needed him most, he disappeared. Until now... On the South Pole, a lone Water Tribe village struggles to survive. It's here that a young Waterbender named Katara and her warrior brother Sokka rescue a strange 12 year-old-boy named Aang from a cavernous iceberg. Not only is Aang an Airbender - a race of people no one has seen in a century - but they soon discover that Aang is a reincarnation of their long lost Avatar. Now it's up to Katara and Sokka to make sure Aang face his destiny to save the tribe and himself.
