A few weeks ago, we received an update from the voice actors confirming that voice work for The Legend of Korra was still underway. We weren’t really told whether or not they were working on Book 3 of Book 4, but I speculated that work on Book 4 could very well be underway. Of course this was just another one of my baseless assumptions, but assumptions are all we can really go off of as long as Nickelodeon decides to keep everything under wraps. Surprisingly, it turns out that my assumption was correct.
According to Bryan Konietzko’s latest Tumblr Post, Book 4 is currently in production. But that doesn’t mean Book 3 is almost complete. Mike and Bryan are currently working on Books 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously, but they are all in different stages of production.
But wait Keval, what about Book 2?
For some odd reason, I get this question in the comments pretty much every time I write about Book 3 or Book 4.
Sorry folks, nothing new. Nickelodeon really isn’t letting anything leak out these days.
But if you’re in for some humor, I did start a Book 2 release date rumor of my own. When I came home from school today, I felt a bit more destructive than usual – don’t ask why, I’m just weird that way sometimes.
When I pulled up Twitter on my phone, I found a whole bunch of tweets asking for Book 2’s release date – nothing out of the ordinary. But it gets a little old when you have to keep telling people that Book 2 doesn’t have a release date. So instead of doing that, I tweeted out confirming Book 2 for August 27th, 2015.
And for some reason, people believed me!
I was slightly dumbfounded by that, and I was a bit interested in seeing the overall reaction from my followers. I let it sit for about 30 minutes and I noticed that about half of the people were calling my bluff and the other half was essentially going ballistic, screaming: WTF, F*CK THAT SH*T, F*CK NICKELODEON GOD D*MN IT, I AIN’T WAITING FOR SH*T!
It was pretty entertaining at first, but once I saw the retweets coming in, I quickly cleared everything up. I didn’t want my little experiment to get too out of hand. Apparently people consider me “credible” – so much so that they’ll believe a 2015 release year for Book 2.
I guess I should probably stop abusing that credibility.
Just an FYI, the only reason I include this stories in my posts is because news has been really slowly these days, so when I post, I want to make them some-what entertaining. I’ll stop including them in my posts once we start getting solid information. But let me know if you enjoy them or not.
