I did my due diligence today scouring the web to try and find this “official” Netflix/Nickelodeon confirmation/leak.
Sadly, it looks like some stray listings for Book One: Air in Ireland and the UK sent people into a tizzy because it also aligned with a random fan prediction of “May 12th” made in December on a Wika message board.
Plus the NICK message boards fanned the flame with many, many panicked animated emoticons HERE.
So let’s relax, we’re probably still getting the Book One DVD first.
I’ve been asked by Devindra to tell you that we are going to upload the /Filmcast Benefit we all did with Jeremy Zuckerman, talking about the scoring for Avatar, Korra and Book 2. We’re going to throw it in the RCD Feed, once we get ourselves back on iTunes and edit the episode, etc.
Until then, you can always chill with me at AvatarPatel’s YouTube page where he uploads the best in Korra video content…unofficial Korra video content. : )
BLU-RAY, COMIN’ AT YA!
IGN has discovered the powers that be have decided The Book One Blu/DVD will come a WHOLE WEEK EARLY(er than expected)!
New date: July 9th 2013
PRE ORDER YOUR BLU RAY HERE!
PRE ORDER YOUR DVD HERE!
IT’S OFFICIAL - The Legend of Korra Book One will get a DVD AND BLU-RAY Release!
It will be coming out July 16th and it’s Nickelodeon’s FIRST series to be released on Blu-Ray. As a result, they really want you to buy it, so while the DVD will have sporadic commentaries on specific episodes, only the Blu-Ray will have commentaries on EVERY episode plus eight Animatic featurettes.
There will also be a Puppet Bender short with Korra characters that will be on both sets.
The DVD pre-order is already up, well update with the BLU when we find it.
I’m not sure this is canon. But it may be required reading. - Patches
todosnickcage asked: Has season 2 release been announced?
Not, like, a date, but promotional materials for Nickelodeon suggests that Korra Book 2 will be air during Fall 2013. Everything we’ve heard has supported that theory, but nothing has hard confirmed it that we know of.
I’m sorry, Season 2 is so far gone. We’re already doing Season 3 now so everything’s so muddled. —
- Seychelle Gabriel, Asami, to IGN at WonderCon
Well, we knew Book 3 was coming, but - GOOD NEWS - they seem to be going non-stop. Which means we might get to go through Korra fully before we have children!
Voices are on Book 3, scoring is half-to-3/4 the way through Book 2 and a handful of episodes are in color correct. Fall looks pretty close.
Anonymous asked: do you think there could be a limitation to Korra and the other benders getting there bending back?
Depends. Could there be? Yes, there could be. Though I’m not sure when it makes the most narrative sense to bring that up. Do you investigate it immediately as a way for Korra to enter the Spirit World? That’s what it seems like from the footage we’ve seen of Book 2 so far. Since all bending originates from the Spirit World, I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re dealing with this pretty early on in the season (especially since it now sounds like well get more Lin backstory, so she may not be as absent from Book 2 as we feared).
The other option would be to let Korra and everyone else feel like a BAMF for a little while, then yank her bending out from under her again in a future book.
I’ll trust Bryan and Mike here.
PS - Like Adventure Time or just have Netflix Instant? It’s PODCAST TIME.
PPS - We’re investigating the possibility of breaking out RCDispatch crossover hour with the SlashFilmAid Podcastathon into the RCDispatch feed. We got to talk to Jeremy Zuckerman of the Track Team again and he let us know what the Spirit World will sound like and how far through Book 2’s score he is.
