Is this the first footage of Book 3: Change? Sure looks it. Savvy Korra fan youpje uploaded a commercial from the Netherlands revealing what appears to be snippets of Book 3 interspersed with shots from Book 1 & 2. Korra spirit-bending water by some vine-covered buildings (inside RC?), Korra in an elevator, a shirtless Tenzin airbending, Team Korra standing outside a zeppelin-esque vehicle, and a mysterious figure riding a dragon. Our friends at ATLA: Annotations are convinced that’s Zuko (and Da7e is praying that it’s Zuko, because if the ATLA character doesn’t appear in Book 3, he’s going to rip his goatee out).

It’s all a bit of a tease, but with production well into Book 4, it shouldn’t be too long until sharper looks and a release date announcement are upon us. SDCC is always a good bet.

What do you make of this footage? Talk to us — it’s been awhile.

yesitsonlymehere asked: Did the topic of a possible release of the book 2 soundtrack come up in the podcast?

Perhaps because an ATLA soundtrack is starting to sound like an impossibility, while the Korra: Book 1 soundtrack feels like a gift from a lion turtle, asking Jeremy and Ben about a possible Book 2 soundtrack totally slipped my mind. But I checked back for an update afterward and here’s the sad truth: It’s not in the works because there’s not much of an interest from Nick at this point. Maybe that has to do with sales from the Book 1 soundtrack — I don’t have evidence to back that up — but currently, there are no plans to round up Jeremy’s Book 2 music for an official release. That could change if there’s enough demand from fans, both on Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook/other facets of the Internet (I’m sure listening, sharing, and commenting on an interview with the composer and sound designer doesn’t hurt…) and also supporting the Book 1 album by actually purchasing it. A soundtrack release makes sense if there’s money to be made on a release. That’s a ball in fandom’s court.

For now, we can relive the musical moments both in the show and on this month’s Republic City Dispatch. This episode was really a way of stoking the fire through a discussion of creativity and the potential of musical drama. If you guys love the Korra score as much as we do, make yourselves heard!

In case you missed it, here’s the podcast featuring Jeremy and Ben.

The always excellent PBS Ideas Channel asks the question that has lit a thousand fires: Is Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra “anime?”

You might remember the most lengthy of the several times we’ve brought this up on the episode “If There Was A Korra Movie” HERE (from last year’s haitus).

As for this year’s haitus, we’re producing another episode this week. We’ll for sure be back soonsies. 

Until then: Cartoon or Anime? The never-ending debate.

d-r-jones asked: since you don't know what the Rift comic is about. I then direct to the avatar wiki the rift page. Aang asks his friends to help him celebrate Yangchen's Festival, one of the highest Air Nomad holidays, which has not been held in over a hundred years. However, visits from the spirit of Avatar Yangchen herself lead Aang to discover a jointly owned Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom refinery which is operating on land sacred to his people. I believe this comic will have environmental theme to it.

Solid.

"Queen of Future Industries" by Finer

This is a song Stacy wrote as a fan song for herself for Avatar: The Legend of Korra, but we loved it so much, we play it at all our shows now. We still love Mako and Korra, but Asami is mysteriously epic.”

Thanks for letting us know about it!
