A little over a week ago, the Track Team came out and announced that some “exciting news” would be coming soon. Soon after that, the Track Team went into a bit more detail and announced that fans should expect the news in early June. At a first glance, most would probably assume that we’d be getting Book 2 news in June. But if you really think about it, would receiving Book 2 news in June make any sense?
To be quite frank, no, receiving Book 2 news in June would make little to no sense at all.
The reason why I say this is because as of now, there are really only two things this fandom is waiting for – a release date and trailer. With Comic-Con coming this July, it wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that we’ll be getting both a release date and trailer during the convention. If this really is the case and Nickelodeon is saving these two announcements for Comic-Con, what type of Book 2 news should we expect to hear in June?
We could receive some sort plot details in regards to Book 2, but my gut tells me that they’d save that information for Comic-Con too. After all, wouldn’t it be perfect if Comic-Con showed us a trailer, announced the release date, then talked more about Book 2’s plot? That’s the dream scenario that could very well become a possibility in July.
The fact of the matter is that there is really nothing substantial that would be worth revealing in June. Nickelodeon is likely saving the “big guns” for Comic-Con. It wouldn’t make sense for Nickelodeon to waste time doing a minor reveal of Book 2 in June and then do a massive reveal during Comic-Con. It would make more sense for Nickelodeon to save everything for huge reveal at Comic-Con.
But despite that fact that I don’t think we’ll get any Book 2 news in early June, I still expect to receive some sort of exciting news next month.
For the sole reason that the Track Team is making this announcement, I have a good feeling that next months exciting news will be an announcement for Avatar: The Last Airbender’s soundtrack. A soundtrack is something that’s been longed for by the fandom for years now, and it’s only a matter of time before Nickelodeon makes an announcement for it.
But of course, this is merely my opinion. What are your thoughts on this matter?
