ONE DAY MORE!
Another book, another destiny
The never-ending road to Avatar
These spirits who seem to know my crime
WE’RE COMING FOR A SECOND TIME.
ONE DAY MORE!
PS - Dee Bradly Baker, the voice of Appa, MoMo, Naga and Pabu, Oogi, Tarrlock, Bumi and the Radio Host was also the voice of Olmec on Legends of the Hidden Temple. 
As part of it’s 20th anniversary (feeling old), Buzzfeed has a great retrospective interview with him and the Legends of the Hidden Temple host. Check it out if you want!

"I am Wan Shi Tong, he who knows ten thousand things. And you are obviously humans. Which, by the way, are no longer permitted in my study." 
I’m not sure Wan Shi Tong will be thrilled with an Airbender back in his library….

Update: JuJuSeed and Empyreankosmo say that there will be two episodes that introduce Wan was the first Avatar. To that I still wonder, how? How do we just throw two backstory episodes into a narrative that’s trucking along? What do we think will be the segue that allows for the main storyline to take a two episode break?
Book 2 will introduce the very first Avatar, Wan. He’ll be voiced by Walking Dead actor Steven Yeun.
Here is my big question: How do we get there? Flashbacks were a big part of Book 1, but they were born out of the narrative. Aang was communicating with Korra. I would suspect that, if we see flashbacks, it would be Wan needing to make contact. No willy nilly jumping backwards in Legend of Korra.
Here’s my real theory: We meet Wan in the spirit world. The background of this picture is what clinches it for me. The surreal shapes of trees and the colors of the sky…. has to be the spirit world. Right?
That is just my (Patches) thinking. Let the theories fly. How is Wan going to figure in to Korra’s Book 2 adventure?

Listen to Two Exclusive Clips From the Legend of Korra Soundtrack

Was happy to bring the Korra love to New York Magazine’s Vulture. Head over there to hear samples from the music and an interview with composer Jeremy Zuckerman of The Track Team.

Plus: They’re having a soundtrack signing at Comic-Con! I am super jealous if you’re going to be there.

First look footage of The Legend of Korra: Book 2.

Nickelodeon’s abrasive graphics and muzac don’t really set the tone here — but I like what I see. While it doesn’t have the majesty and unexpected elegance of Book 1’s Republic City setting, Book 2 promises a Miyazaki-style fantasy arc. Maybe that’s why it looks a bit more “cartoony” than Book 1. The spirit animals are bubbly and the backgrounds play to that aesthetic over the hyper-detail of RC. I’m glad their taking risks rather than replicating what worked in the first season. - Patches

What do you think?

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.
