Zeroing in on potential alternate realities in Avatar: The Last Airbender universe
Avatar: The Last Airbender is a live-action series
Avatar: The Last Airbender's Prince Zuko is voiced by Dante Basco
I would love to have seen Azula be redeemed as Zuko has been redeemed, said Basco
Voice actors of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra - Dante Basco (Prince Zuko) and Janet Varney (Korra) - have come together for a podcast series called Avatar: Braving the Elements. Dee Bradley Baker (the voice of Appa) made an appearance as a guest in this week’s episode. In an interview with IGN, the duo discussed alternate events and biggest “what-ifs”.
What if Princess Azula was redeemed?
After the epic fight between Zuko and his sister, Azula, in the Avatar: The Last Airbender finale, it still remains whether she can be redeemed.
"I have brothers and sisters in real life, so I'm always the one rooting for my siblings," Basco told IGN. "And so of course, I would love to have seen Azula be redeemed as Zuko has been redeemed. Zuko is a great redemption arc, who doesn't want to see that in his family member. So who knows as the stories go on? I know she went down a different kind of place in the comic books, but I think there's always room for hope."
Would Korra Have Let Fire Lord Ozai Live if She Was in Aang's Situation?
It is no secret that Korra is short-tempered. What if she was merciful to Fire Lord Azai.

"I would like to think that by Season 4 she would have -- well, in Season 4, she was so scared and shell-shocked from everything," Varney explained. "But moving past that into the future, I do think she learned. But had it happened in Season 3, I don't know. I do not know. And that's one of the things that's been so fun about doing the podcast together, is that we've had fans and our fellow actors who play characters in the show, we've had a handful of people really point out it actually really makes sense that Korra and Zuko would end up on a podcast together."
Talking about the future The Future of Avatar: The Last Airbender Universe, he said, "Fully sworn to secrecy," Varney exclaimed. "I can't even remember the context of why I found out a few things. But it is one of those things where, as much as people want to know, and I totally understand, I understand that fandom that wants to steal the Game of Thrones script from the set and leak it because everyone's so passionate about it. I get it. But at the same time, I love knowing that I respect and have so much faith, and I know [Dante] does too, in what Mike and Bryan do. I don't need to know anything because I'm supremely confident that the stories that they're going to tell, whatever they are from whatever era, whatever it is, I'm going to be on board for."
