Entire First Episode of Book 2 to be shown at Comic-Con 2013

It turns out that one of my baseless speculations turned out to be true – Nickelodeon has used Tumblr to confirm that the entire first episode from Book 2 (titled Rebel Spirit) will be streamed at Comic-Con this Friday. I’m fairly certain they won’t allow any one to record it, but there’ll be no way of controlling the situation when so many Legend of Korra Fans are involved. Needless to say, someone will end up leaking the entire first episode once the convention is over, and Viacom will have to spend most of their time containing that leak.

The convention is only an hour long, so once the first episode is shown there’ll only be about 30-40 minutes left for Mike and Bryan to talk about Book 2. In that span of time, we should expect new art work, some more information, and even that trailer Bryan hinted at earlier.

Surly we’ll receive a release date too, right?

The fact that an entire episode is being shown at Comic-Con strongly suggests that a release date will be announced too. There’s nothing factual behind that, but showing an entire episode eclipses revealing a release date any day. And if Nickelodeon is allowing Mike and Bryan to show an entire episode, it wouldn’t make sense for them to hold back the release date unless it doesn’t exist yet.

But because they’ve already started marketing, it would be highly unlikely that they don’t have a release date set yet. At least, that’s how I see it.

By the way, Bryan shared this art work when he revealed the big news:

How amped are all of you for Comic-Con now?

    I literally saw this news SECONDS after Nickelodeon posted it and I STILL couldn’t write this post before half the fandom found out. You guys are fast.

    • joe

      Yes we are :D

    • PerformerFX

      I got “The Legend of Korra Facebook” on my Mailing List. The news popped in 2 seconds after they clicked the “publish” button :D

    • Korrafan81516

      That guy you banned found his way back on Keval!

  • joe

    What about those who won’t be at Comic-con, will they release it just like season 1? :<

    • PerformerFX

      I really hope so. Would been a shame if not :/

      • joe

        Yep :/

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      It’ll be leaked, and I’ll post it here. Keep checking this blog on Friday so you can watch it before Viacom takes it down.

      • joe

        Ok, Thx Keval, for your work. btw, The artwork posted is great!!

        • Sergio

          How about a great hat with a hidden camera inside? lol…just kidding, but I hardly hope someone will do something…

          • joe

            It’s a one hell of a risk of course, but surely someone will record :D

      • Performer

        You think? There will be security and the risk to get thrown out. Respect to those guys that will try this…

        • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

          There’s always that risk, but someone always tends to record anyways.

          • joe

            But I won’t watch the episode if someone would record it. With respect to such a great series, I want to watch it in high quality :)

          • Jason

            Ain’t nobody got time for dat

          • Nemesis

            Just look at it this way: Bryan, Mike and NIck were willing to show the first episode to thousands of fans at comic con. But what about fans from other countries who couldn’t make it? Recording it and posting it online makes it fair.

          • joe

            Still, It won’t be a good quality. As much as I want this season to start, I’m wiling to wait a bit longer to watch it in high quality :)

          • Nemesis

            Yeah, the quality will be a problem. Hopefully the fan who illegally records has a pretty dam good camera. lol

          • joe

            Hope so :D

          • daniel yefru

            yea ur hella right
            same here but if its a long time until tv airing then i will watch wat i have to watch

          • Korrafan81516

            Same

          • Tenmashi

            Why? The people who get to be at Comic Con get to see it so why shouldn’t we? How is it even a leak, there’s no NDA or anything, it’s just content they publicly released but for some reason don’t want to put online so EVERYONE can see it. If they want to make money of it why don’t they throw it online with a bunch of ads?

            And nobody start about “then you should’ve gone to Comic Con”. I’m on the other side of the damn world okay? ~_~ And not amused they are being such a bitch about showing content. It’s a good thing the internet has pirates.

          • Tenmashi

            Oh, didn’t see/read your last sentence. That’ll teach me. Shouldn’t rant that much. ‘xD … BUT STILL!

      • Lauren

        Can you repost it if it gets taken down?

  • Jackimus

    It would probably be pretty low quality video I would assume.
    Doesn’t matter, still super excited! I’ve watched Book 1 like 4 times so I’d like some book 2.

    • Jason

      Ikr, I have to try to sleep in on friday to clean time

  • Aang

    FUUUUUUUCK YEAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bother

      Dude, I was just going to say that when I scrolled down to comment, saw you comment, and was like, “AWWWWWW!!! Dang it!

  • Nico

    Release date will be within a month no doubt

    • Jason

      Release will be in a month no doubt

  • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

    For anyone who doesn’t think the episode will be leaked:

    The Book 2 Animatics from last year hit YouTube almost immediately after the convention was over, and the Book 1 trailer from Comic-Con 2 years ago hit YouTube almost immediately as well.

    It always gets leaked, it’s just that Viacom always shuts it down. I’ll be posting it in an non-YouTube format so Viacom will have to go through me to take it down. It’ll be a lengthier process so it should give you all more time to see it.

    • I’ll Shave It For Later

      Damn, Keval. I just saw yo’ face on youtube. You’ve got a goatee, a mustache, afro-ish hair, and everything! I was like, WOAH!!!!!!

      • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

        No, that’s not me. I’m NOT AvatarJesal/AvatarPatel. I actually don’t have a goatee, mustache or afro-ish hair haha.

        Everyone seems to think that I’m Jesal, but I’m NOT.

        • I’ll Shave It For Later

          Sarcasm? If not, I’m REALLY sorry. The guy said he was Keval.

          • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

            I know for sure it’s definitely not me, but could you link me please?

          • MitchGunner

            He probably said “Jesal” and it sounded like “Keval”

    • http://www.korranewstoday.blogspot.com/ Filmeditor16

      Thank you Kevel! I really appreciate you doing that! It’s not fair that the majority of the fanbase can’t be at SDCC and Nickelodeon or IGN or EW or any other media websites don’t post stuff that happened at the panel for everyone to enjoy, we just have to rely on our fans, it’s a good thing we have good fans too. I mean, sometimes IGN, EW, and Nick post stuff from the panel but they never live stream it like they should. Anyway thanks again Kevel!

    • daniel yefru

      good luck viacom can be a cry baby sometimes like last year they took down nick from direct tv

    • Huck

      “here is a photo from a meeting this past Monday to kick off the storyboards for the first episode of Book 4––and we’re not even finished with the last episodes of Book 2 yet!”

      “P.J. Byrne, voice of Bolin, in for a Book 4 recording session the other day.”

      So they’re not completely done with book 2, meaning it probably won’t premiere anytime soon. But it seems that the wait for Book 3 will be much shorter since they’ve already started recording for Book 4, along with it’s storyboards.

      • Jason

        They don’t have to be COMPLETELY done with book 2 for it to start , it’ll be a couple months before that episode airs anyways and im 99% sure book 2 will start in august

  • MitchGunner

    If it is leaked (I’m still skeptical), then it will probably be very low quality. I hope that it is allowed to be recorded so somebody like IGN will be able to stream it at a higher quality. Either way, at least we will be getting a high quality trailer and maybe even a smaller sneak peak, so I’m pumped!

  • Amonster

    Awesome

    • Amonster

      Btw that artwork is awesome.

  • MitchGunner

    Does this mean that Book 2 will be airing sooner than we thought, like in August. I mean, after showing the fans the ENTIRE first episode, they wouldn’t be so cold as to make them wait three months to see episode 2, right? And if this is true, then I have no doubt that we will be getting a release date at comic-con.

    • Aang

      Actually, if they were making us wait 3 months for the actual release, you would be seeing Episode 1 first (again) so it would be kind of a piss take. Hopefully its early September at the latest.

      • MitchGunner

        They will probably do a two episode premiere like they usually do.

  • Livid17

    I’ll be the first one to report your ass if you even post a video of the leak episode on here

      Why? Are you some hater and have nothing to do in your pathetic life?

      Livid17: Well, I’m a complete jackass that, for some reason continues to come onto this site even though nobody wants me on here, so I guess I’m obligated to make a stupid comment and wait for people to jump all over me.

    Korra fans are sneaky. There is no doubt that by 1:00 PM on Friday the video will be spread across the internet. Viacom can’t and won’t be able to control the leaks.

  • Kari

    I wonder if it will be released on Amazon Instant Video. I remember the first episode of book 1 was available for free before it even premiered on Nickelodeon.

  • George

    San Diego…I want to go to there…

  • Guesty guest

    I really hope it is leaked so I can see it. Seriously, this series made a really deep impact on me for some kind of strange reason. I guess they reminded me of the great chapters of ATLA, but I don’t know.

    I decided a few days ago when I saw Keval’s post about the Comic-Con TLOK stand that if it was leaked something I would wait untill it is subbed and in quite good quality. But I don’t have very strong will and now I have a huge need of watching that chapter, seriously it has come to a point where I’m almost bitting my nails. I don’t know why but I need to watch it, I’m somehow addicted to it.

    Totally off the topic, I think fantasy (or sci-fi, or whatever you call this) genre is awesome, but it hurts a little when you think: “Oh man, I will never be able to bend/use the force/get out of Matrix (:P), what a freaking pity” That sometimes even kinda hurts.

    Well here are my opinions for whoever wanted to hear them (who I guess was no one as this is my first post).

    Regards and have fun at the Comic-con for me as I won’t be able to go there.

    Your impatient european fellow.
