Legend of Korra Season 3 Copyright Listing Hints at Potential June Release Month

Earlier this evening, I made an interesting observation about the Legend of Korra’s copyright formality. Upon seeing the first two episodes of Book 3 being listed as copywritten in the official database, I began to dig through all other copywritten material pertaining to the Legend of Korra. As expected, all of the episode titles from Book 1 and Book 2 were listed. Under the listing was also the date that each particular episode title was listed.

I initially looked at Book 2’s premiere episode, titled Rebel Spirit. Rebel Spirit was listed in the database on May 2nd, 2014 – four months before the actual episode premiered. Intrigued, I looked up Book 1’s premiere episode, titled Welcome to Republic City. Welcome to Republic City was listed in the database on December 15th, 2011 – also four months before the actual episode premiered.

Could this correlation be a coincidence? Of course. But is it possible that this correlation could accurately predict the release month of Book 3? Of course.

Book 3’s premiere episode, titled A Breath of Fresh Air was listed on January 31st, 2014. Due to the fact that the episode was listed on the last day of January, it would be wise to simply round up the month to February. Four months past February is June 2014, which is a month many fans are expecting to be the premiere month of Book 3.

Judging by the amount of people claiming that Book 3 will premiere soon, it would make perfect sense for Book 3 to premiere in June because the month is not particularly far away.

At this point in time, a June premiere would be considered “soon.”

The real question, however, is whether or not June makes sense from a production and marketing standpoint. As far as production is concerned, I don’t think a June premiere month would be difficult to make. Animation on Book 3 is already complete, and that’s the heavy stuff – for the most part.

All that remains is sound implementation, color corrections and potential voice overs. All of which are considered the final stages of production.

In terms of a marketing standpoint, however, a June release month is a bit dicey. Nickelodeon has yet to publicly acknowledge the existence of Book 3 and they used Comic Con to break the ice for Book 2 last year. Comic Con is scheduled for July this year – as usual – so Nickelodeon won’t be able to use Comic Con as marketing if they decide to premiere Book 3 in June.

Obviously, Korra Nation is Nickelodeon’s main form of marketing The Legend of Korra. While I think it’s a brilliant scheme, it’s not powerful enough to market Book 3 alone. Nickelodeon will need to begin releasing commercials and clips of the new season – and soon, too.

The longer it takes for Nickelodeon to begin marketing, the more we as fans are forced to push-out our expected release date for Book 3.

At the end of the day, I expect Book 3 to premiere in June. I think Nickelodeon will pull some strings and add Book 3 into their schedule even if they don’t market it to perfection. There’s just too much evidence piling up claiming that Book 3 will premiere sooner rather than later. I wouldn’t necessarily list this as ground-breaking evidence, but it does give us a bit of a look at the scheduling aspect of things.

According to this database, Viacom likes to list copyrights for premiere episodes four months before the actual premiere. Hopefully this correlation continues with Book 3.

    June release? LOL, What is going on? if they planned to release it on june! Not a single announcement yet from nick! lets see,

      • http://www.performerfx.de/ PerformerFX

        Relax. Not everyone is an english native speaker. Korra is a pretty international thing. I think it’s pretty cool that everyone can communicate over the internet with a language that everyone understands. Even if some people aren’t geniuses. Be a little more tolerant.

      • ajames123

        Oops, Sorry for that,

        • Korrava

          Nooo, I’m sorry for being a twat. Sorry James. :(

          • ajames123

            :) no, you don’t have to.. you are right, everything in that comment is messed up! :)

  • Zuzu

    Korra nation needs to resume and Nick should be showing commercials by now, if this is true.

    • Legama

      That will be decided the rest of this month. If marketing begins from here to the end of May then June is the answer. If marketing begins in June, then July will be it.

  • claublog

    This is one of the websites that is causing fake rumours and rising hype all the time.
    Book 3 will be released on september or later. Bryan said that on July 2014 we would have news from this new season.
    And the supposed titles “Rebirth” and “Breath of Fresh Air” are fake, they didn’t made it with Book 1 and 2, and they already deleted them.

    • Zuzu

      I understand where you are coming from, but you need to stop being so cynical as there are many flaws in what you said, kind sir. For instance when you said: “fake rumours.” Keval and the group aren’t presenting fake rumours they are only making a hypothetical suggestion to the situation, however people like you miss judge what’s written and often try to present that anger in a cynical way. Keval is only here to deliver news and provide his own hypothetical bias to a situation, people like you take what people say seriously, and ultimately get upset and resort to other means, in terms of communication with fandom And Bryan never stated that we’d get information on Book 3 in July, it was assumed by the fandom that comic con would be the main source to deliver this information, the irony. “And the supposed titles “Rebirth” and “Breath of Fresh Air” are fake,” I’m sorry kind sir, but how is this fake, when there is primary evidence being pointed out, by many fandom communities. At least provide evidence to this claim: ” they didn’t made it with Book 1 and 2, and they already deleted them.”
      And how do you know Book 3 will release in September, it certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility, but how do you know when you yourself are delivering false information.

      • claublog

        It’s pretty obvious that if Book 3 releases this summer, we would get a date. Nickelodeon did wrong with the timetables at Book 2, and if they release it on June, they would have been worried about letting all the audience the premiere date.
        2013′s Comic Con was the event that nickelodeon used to promote successfuly the Book 2, and they are looking forward to do the same this year.

        I like this page, but sometimes they spread those “own hypothethical bias to a situation” (as you say) and reach to all the fandom.
        This is not acceptable, given that this page wants to be a serious news provider, not a forum. News pages or diaries never do that. This post is another fake rumour trying to convinces us that we can expect Book 3 for June, and the worst of all is that it’s parting from another probably fake base.

        Since I follow this page I have had opportunities to see how they make expect the fans unsure issues, facts, dates, events, theories, etc, and one month later see how officially it’s proven as fake.

        Just let’s see if Book 3 is going to be released in June as they say ;)

        • Zuzu

          I truly understand where you’re coming from. I mean Bryan has said the word “:soon” in relation to book 3′s release, but what is soon. I would say at least half the wait between Book 1-2 off season, we all thought book 3 would be released April-May. But that isn’t the case, as advertising hasn’t begun. Why did Bryan post all those images a few months ago and why has he been so silent on tumblr now, in relation to book 3 footage. David Faustino a voice actor said it would release in September. But we have received many forms of evidence to say that book 3 has been complete, and is ready to premiere. We actually dont know much. I’m just dissapointed that Nick hasn’t said anything about book 3. And i dont think Book 3 will release in June, i think it will release in September too, i’m considering Faustino’s release date and i understand where you are coming from. It would be reasonable for Nick to premiere Book 3 in September after comic con. We will also have the rift part 3 to entertain us. Bryke and the gang would’ve have started production on Book 4, maybe even having 2 episodes complete and by the time Book 3 ends they’d probably have 4-6 episodes complete.
          Nice discussion. :)

          • claublog

            In fact, I started to say that before David Faustino spoken.
            As you said, Studio Mir and Bryan Konietzko are saying that it will be released “soon” lately.
            They already finnished their work, but they cannot know the date because it’s Nickelodeon issue. And I think nick is planning the best schedule to avoid repeat the low audience from Book 2 this time.
            Probably the best hour to stream every chapter weekly on TV is already taken by other series on their schedule, and they will make us wait until there is a place.

        • crystalline7707

          You do realize this all speculation as implied the by the title and throughout the article…Nothing he says is set and stone and he makes that very clear, starting with the title. Youre judgement is very misguided.

    • Link9150

      No fake rumours are being created here. It’s all speculation and it’s even implied in the title of this article.

      • Ariana Moreno

        I finished breaking bad O_O

        • Link9150

          Awesome! How did you find it?

          • Ariana Moreno

            Lemme tell you that Vince Gilligan is a genius. The show is cleverly crafted, addicting, suspenseful, the list can go on. The characters are well made. Hank Schrader was my favorite. XD anyway, I loved it. Thanks for suggesting it. It reminded me of my Prison Break days, cause trust me, the show is just as good. You’ll like it. Considering that this dry spell is supposed to continue for a little while longer, I think you would have time to check it out for yourself. ;) I keep pushing you to watch it because I want someone else to enjoy what I have considered one of the best series on tv. I also want to hear what you have to say about it too.

          • Link9150

            Trust me it’s on the top of my list ;)
            I’ve just been busy with so many assignments lately so it’s been hard for me to focus on anything.
            But trust me, in time I’ll see it :)

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      With all do respect, I write this blog largely based on opinion when news is scarce. If people decide to take my opinion and re-post it as a fact, that’s their issue – not mine. I’m always very clear when writing about opinion and/or fact. As for being responsible for rising hype: I’ll admit to doing that. But I won’t apologize for it, either. I try to build excitement when I write because it’s important to be excited for something you’re truly passionate about. If you’re truly passionate for Avatar, why wouldn’t you want to be excited and hyped? I’m very excited for Book 3, so my job as a writer on this blog is to make you feel that way too. If you don’t want to feel excited and hyped for Book 3, this blog probably isn’t the read for you. But how twisted does that sound?

      • claublog

        Thanks for asking me that question, I will gladly answer it.
        This page has always been a serious news provider, and we, the readers, take as legit source of info everything you post.

        If you say “It is posible to get the chance to see a trailer of Book 3 at Kids Choice Awards”, then everyone will say that almost for sure we are going to get a trailer in the kids choice awards.
        Is it bad to rise hype like that? Yes, because at the end, it will result fake and people will be sad. I use to warn people to not believe in blind dreams, but still they want to do it until they crash.

        • ajames123

          I think Keval is doing a better job of keeping the fandom alive, especially during off-season. creating a hype is cool, that hype is what we korra fans wants during off-season. Keval always present that kinda of uncertain news as “possibility” not as a actual fact. Its not Keval’s fault, for people to see his predictions as a fact.

        • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

          Listen, I appreciate you reading my work. I really do. I’ll do my best not to stir the pot too much and ensure my readers understand fact from opinion.

  • Quac

    Something I really don’t get if we’re not gonna get a June release: why was a trailer made such a long time beforehand? Of course it wasn’t officially released and it was just a mistake that it was shown on TV in The Netherlands, but still.

    • Zuzu

      It was advertising for Book 2 in the Netherlands, which had Book 3 footage.

    • Legama

      The explanation to that is simple. Nick sent Book 3 material to the Netherlands for dubbing. When it came the time for Nick Netherlands to air Book 2, they prepared a trailer promoting Book 2, but used some of the Book 3 material in the trailer, accidentally teasing a bit of Book 3.

  • monkeyatsoo

    They usually like to put the last season’s DVDs out just a few weeks before the new season starts to drum up excitement. (So, my guess would be NOT before July 1st). Then they want a little while of commercials to drum up interest. And summer is not the greatest time for kids shows (or any for that matter, most tv shows are on reruns over summer).
    I would expect something like: announcement at comicon for this fall book 3 to start.
    I would be REALLY surprised to see anything start up before september.

  • Link9150

    I never understood why Nick always waits for Comic-con to “break the ice” with The Legend of Korra. I get that it’s the biggest event for announcing new seasons of TV shows and new movies, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only way.

    Korra Nation + the role of sharing in social media + Commercials = Massive marketing.

    Also, remember when Janet Varney posted a video on Tumblr for the finale of Book 2 and asked for 10 000 reblogs, well that happened in a couple of hours. It just shows how effective the role of social media is in marketing. Imagine if they did that with Book 3.

    In the end, I got nothing against Nick. They’re a corporation and surely understand marketing better than I do. But I seriously doubt that waiting for Comic Con to reveal Book 3 is the only way to market it.

    • Legama

      Like if kids, or average viewers were aware of the comic-con. Comic con is good for marketing on tv enthusiasts and fans. But you are right, when it comes to marketing the series to the average viewer, social media and internet is the righ way to do it.

      • Link9150

        Nick operates in a way that is beyond my understanding o-o

    • http://www.performerfx.de/ PerformerFX

      The book probably wasn’t finished soon enough for a full spring release. Summer is kinda not the time anyone would wanna watch Korra, inside, at home.
      So the earliest date that would make sense is fall and SDCC is before that. So why not use this exact convention to make all the announcements. Also this reduces the time till book 4.

      Since we know that the storyboard of Book 4 is done they probably animating it right now and I would guess for a book 4 2015 fall release and Korra concludes. I know I thinking way to far ahead but it seems reasonable for me.

      • Link9150

        As I have said once, many franchises are announced early on and at a random time.
        For instance, a huge and highly demanded game to come for the 3DS (Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) were announced out of the blue on May 7th.
        Teasers and a new trailer for Marvel’s new movie Guardians of the Galaxy also just came out out of no where.
        A huge 40-minute video talking about the new features in the new Super Smash was made at the beginning of April, again, out of nowhere.
        My point is, in many forms of entertainment developers and publishers start marketing very early on and doesn’t wait for “major events”. If other franchises can do this why can’t Nick do this with the The Legend of Korra? That’s what boggling my mind.
        It’s not about the release date, but about building up the hype.

      • Nathan

        ATLA used to air in summer, and it did amazingly well.

  • Legama

    It will probably be aired on late June, if not, mid July, past the comic-con. If not, lets say it would have aired by january of 2020, just to be sure :p

    • Kyle Edgecomb

      Nah thatll be book 4, or at least the dvd release of book 3

  • Sibis

    The first episode of Book 3 takes place a few weeks after the end of Book 2. It has been a few weeks of work for Korra having no such luck clearing away the Spirit Wilds in Republic City by the order of President Raiho. She has tried every bending trick and combo bending. Even unorthodox (by Korra’s standard of anything outside of bending) as in punching, kicking, pulling, pushing, having Naga gnaw on it, an axe, a sword, explosives, ramming Asami’s car into it, flirting, and even sit there crying until some dues ex machina happens to remove it.

    So while Korra gets an earful from Raiho about her failure, Lin shows up to turn in her request for vacation time to go to the Earth Kingdom. Then Korra also announces her need to take some vacation by forcing herself in on Lin’s vacation. Lin tells Korra no, but then everyone else shows up “Mako, Bolin, Asami, and Tenzin” agreeing to the idea to tag along. *Sigh.* Lin can’t refuse.

    Wait, didn’t Mako have a job? Guess the show decided to ignore that part.

    • Korrava

      Korra isn’t an obnoxious brat like you’re making her seem. As you’ve seen in the Netherlands trailer, she’s doing fine clearing away the vines.

      • Sibis

        Korra is trying to bend, not successfully clearing them away as the result of her actions isn’t shown.

        With that scene possibly being her first attempt..

        • Korrava

          Look at the background. Do you see any vines on those buildings?

          • Sibis

            Still speculation.

    • Derrick

      Lol I seriously hope it doesn’t happen that way. With the way Book 2 ended, it looks like Korra will be on the right track in terms of character development. She used to solve problems by rushing in fist galore but it seems now that she’s at least trying to think things through and not just go off of her anger and frustration. I’ve pretty much given up on Mako and Bolin. Useless characters IMO. I still have some hope for Asami though. I actually liked her in Book 1 but hopefully she can redeem herself in Book 3 after her shameful actions in Book 2 (kissing Mako..Seriously?)

      • Sibis

        Korra in Book 2 just did what Unalaq wanted and helped his plans along until both portals are open allowing both sides to cross.

        At that point she had the choice to reverse the changes she’s done or leave it be leave for both sides to sort it out.

        Korra’s last decision is still reckless as it doesn’t consider what the other 99.99% of the human population and the Spirits think about this last minute coexistence arrangement she is pushing on to them. Her decision is questionable because she invoked Unalaq the lying ******* uncle over Wan for the reason behind this decision.

        • blood red rose

          True although probably you also have to put in a probability of the people themselves because you don’t know what the people of the world will do with the portals unless they decide as a whole and it would be pretty awesome if korra could strategize more. I speak as a knowledge/stratigizer valuer (spelled correctly?) Myself.

          • Sibis

            At the very least, the Government leaders should have been brought into the decision process as the governments would be the ones handling +90% of the workload to maintain peace between human and spirit.

            Korra is not able to be everywhere at once to resolve every problem. She’s not Superman and she doesn’t have any organization at her beckon call to help.

          • Korrava

            As the former bridge between the two worlds, it is HER decision. Not the world leaders.

          • Sibis

            Which is why such thinking is what leads to Korra getting backlash from others.

            She got backlash from the SWT people for deciding to side with Unalaq about his siege of the SWT and trying to get the people to accept the change of events forced on them and coexist with it.

          • Wyatt

            Have you ever said anything positive about The Legend of Korra? If you weren’t a member of this community, I’d assume you hate the show.

          • Sibis

            If I didn’t continue any slight interest in this show, I wouldn’t be posting here.

            So far only the minor stuff like the Eska/Bolin relationship for the first 3 episodes is the only good things.

            A lot of the major story tends to be either inconsistent, uninteresting, or senseless at times. The show had potential but it’s gone to waste in important areas in my view.

            I’m a harsh critic towards Korra, just like the girl who called her the worst Avatar ever.

          • Wyatt

            Okay, so it sounds like your complaints outweigh your praise… hopefully the third season will change your mind.

          • Sibis

            My criticism about Korra is based off what the show provides. For example SWT backlashes at Korra for siding with Unalaq’s view, trying to push a change on those people that they didn’t want, and telling them to get along. The Spirit Portal is just like that, but on a world wide scale while Korra hasn’t shown any lesson learned from her handling public opinion.

          • Wyatt

            The problem is, the people that don’t want change will continue to endure conflict after conflict without a resolve. Opening the Spirit Portals was a decision Korra made based on what she learned from Wan, Uncle Iroh, and her visit to the Spirit World. The world needs to integrate the spirits back into society, that’s what Korra decided, and it’s arguably wise of her to assert such a notion. As for your criticism, you only see one side of the argument. You nitpick as if the show were real life, you only accept its flaws, and you act like Korra should be perfect. Her troubles are what drive the plot… How else could her storylines be interesting?

          • Sibis

            Korra chose to leave the portals open rather than close them. She opened them when Unalaq manipulated her to go around to do his evil bidding.

            The big problem with the portal issue is Korra’s reason behind it. She invoked Unalaq over Wan, rather than something else over Wan. Korra chose to side with Unalaq again in the end. Unalaq was a power hungry psycho who only wanted to be on top of the world and rule it all. This was someone who manipulated Korra and lied to her on several occasions. He had Korra side with him when his NWT forces seized the SWT. He also hurt Jinora.

            My opinion would be different if Korra’s reason was based off something else rather than just saying Unalaq was right. Just invoking Unalaq is not a good enough reason which leaves as Korra simply taking over where Unalaq left off.

          • Josh

            Just because Unalaq was power hungry doesn’t mean that his beliefs were wrong. That’s like saying since Amon decided to turn to violence his beliefs of human equality were evil/wrong. Sozin believed that all nations should live together as one! Now hundreds of years later Avatar Aang has founded republic city. If you think about it, Unalaq’s beliefs were something that Aang, and many other Avatars would definitely get behind. He believed that spirits and humans should live together side by side. Helping to preserve nature along with many different traditions and cultures. When Korra saw how happy Bumi and Bumjun were, she began to rethink what Wan thought to be impossible. Just like when Aang saw the multicultural family in Yudao. Korra realized that even though human and spirit coexistence didn’t work in the past, there’s a chance that it can work in the present! I do think that Korra could have taken some more time to think it over, but she would most likely come to the same conclusion.

          • Sibis

            Korra only weighs the decision between Unalaq’s view vs. Wan’s view. She does not use anything else behind it when making the decision.

            Then again, why would Korra need to bring up Unalaq’s view to adopt it as her own reason, rather than just bring up her own independent observations and experiences for her reason.

          • Josh

            Korra brought up Unalaq, because although he was evil, she still wanted to give him credit for actually having a good idea. And if it wasn’t for Bumi she probably wouldn’t have realized that what Unalaq did was partially right. It was seeing Bumi interact with Bumjun that ultimately drove her to make the decision to keep the portals open. And there’s nothing wrong with adopting someone else’s beliefs(Granted that they are good) even if they are a power hungry jerk. I think your just discriminating against Unalaq(and Korra) because like you said; if she would have referred to anyone other than him you would have been fine. A good idea is a good idea no matter where it comes from!

          • Sibis

            The villain being Unalaq whose own belief in the end was to rule over it all in darkness. While Korra latches on to every word out of his mouth as truth despite it being either truth or false.

          • Korrava

            You know I really dislike like it when you don’t even consider some one else’s opinion. As if yours is correct..

          • Wyatt

            This is why I was speaking up. You’re supposed to voice your own opinion, but you should also be tolerant of others’ opinions. Debate is totally fine, but it irritates me to see somebody promoting purely negative observations without considering the positive opinions of others, or really without acknowledging the admirable qualities they find in The Legend of Korra. Sibis, you told me there are parts of the Legend of Korra you like, but you seem to busy bashing the show to enjoy those qualities. How can you expect to like something if you only look for it to be flawed?

          • Sibis

            Wyatt and Korrava are both making this personal. I’m sticking to the subject matter at hand and don’t really care if you are offended in someway by my responses. If you get irate about them, then stop responding to my posts.

          • Wyatt

            Look buddy, it just gets annoying after a while. I’m not taking this personal, and I’m not trying to attack you on a personal level. I was just speaking up against something that’s been bugging me for a long time. And based on how you responded to my criticism (crying to Keval), I won’t be expecting any change. You’re a damn fine debater Sibis, but you can’t just come on here to spread negative vibes all the time. Let’s call it truce for now, okay?

          • Josh

            It’s not like Korra is trying to take over the world or spread darkness like Unalaq wanted to. She’s just bridging the gap between Spirits and man. In the beginning Korra blindly followed Unalaq, but by the end of the season she realized that MOSTLY everything he did was wrong. Your argument honestly makes no sense. It’s just a way to try and justify your hatred for Korra and Unalaq.

          • Sibis

            Didn’t the moderators lay down the rule that you’re not suppose to flame other posters.

          • Wyatt

            I’m not trying to “flame” you, I just find it irritating when all you do is bash the show and then reject everyone else’s opinions.

        • Derrick

          Yeah I can see where you’re coming from. I guess we have to see in Book 3 how it all turns out. However I don’t think when Korra left the portals open she was picking Unalaq’s side over Wan’s. She truly believes that spirits and humans can find a way to live together just like the members of the different nations found a way to live together in Republic City. While I agree that the decision was unfair to the rest of the people in the world who now have to adjust to this new way of living, I don’t think it was necessarily a middle finger to Wan. Korra’s decision is very similar to Aang’s decision to have a city where people of all nations could coexist together. Roku didn’t agree with that idea. He believed that 4 nations should always be 4. However Aang believed in his ideals and it came to pass. Republic City stands tall as a beacon that the four nations CAN live together peacefully. I think we should just wait to see how Korra’s decision to leave the portals turn out.

          • Ifreke Umana

            I also think that because she followed Tenzin’s advice to “Let go of your attachment to who you think you are”, it caused her to look at her as the Avatar differently.

          • Derrick

            Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Korra might have taken from those words of advice that even though she’s the Avatar, she’s still herself. Aang does not act like Roku, Roku doesn’t act like Kyoshi, and Kyoshi didn’t act like Kuruk. Even though they technically can be considered the same people just reborn into different bodies, all the avatars still have their own mind and must forge their own path. Kyoshi was a more blunt, aggressive, and no nonsense avatar. Aang was a more passive, understanding, and gentle avatar. There was nothing wrong with either of them. They both got the job done, just in their own way. I just think we need to see the results of Korra’s actions and decisions before labeling her a “bad” avatar.

          • Sibis

            Before that, Korra helped Unalaq by opening the portals which lead to the worst case scenario.

            Then, by the end she just makes the leave the portal open decision on the spot after a hectic battle to stop the madman she helped. There was little time for rest and to collect thoughts.

            This was not a long thought out decision. It was quick. Korra brings up Unalaq and Wan but is already signalling her leaning towards Unalaq over Wan views when asking the questions. “What if Unalaq was right” and “What if Avatar Wan made a mistake”, very much signals Korra was leaning towards Unalaq’s view from the start.

            Korra’s reasoning was simple between only a two person opposing views for a major world changing decision. A more thought out decision for a world scale would include more than two people opposing views.

          • Derrick

            True. That’s where I agree with you in that the decision was a bit reckless. There should have been more people there to decide if leaving the portals open was the right thing to do. What I’m sayinig is her heart was in the right place. Even though she sided with Unalaq that having a world with spirits would be a good thing, it’s not like she sided with everything he said. Korra’s reason in leaving the spirit portals open was not to spread 10,000 years of darkness like Unalaq was trying to do. She wants to create a world of peace where humans can live together with spirits harmoniously. Like I said, her heart is in the right place. She just needs to think things through more. Basically, there’s more room for growth in her character. Korra does care for everyone, but she needs to work on being a good leader which hopefully will start to happen in Book 3 and 4.

        • Korraholic

          No one outside of Korra’s circle would understand her thinking and reasoning on this matter. Only a few actually know Korra was helping Unalaq along the way.

          Most of the people will just hear Korra telling them that they will have to coexist with Spirits and work it out. While never know the full story of the events in Book 2 that lead up to this. If the people knew, it could cause a bigger backlash.

          • Sibis

            That would be a big thing if the ones opposed to the coexistence project learned what Korra was doing during Book 2 helping Unalaq.

    • Kyle Edgecomb

      Yes Mako has job, but if Lin is going, then since Lin is like, his boss then she can technically give him the leave of absence

    • Erin

      I think what will happen is all the world leaders will be yelling at korra like why the hell did you open the spirit portals without asking us and there will be spirit problems in the earth kingdom and there will be groups who are against korra for unleashing all these hateful and destructive (since the world is kinda going through an industrial revolution right now they’re going to be pissed about what happened to the forests and pollution) spirits on them. kind of a world against korra thing.

      • Sibis

        Avatar is a role that is a high position of power for that world with little to no accountability for their decisions or actions. Korra can pretty much do whatever she wants, whatever to anyone else, or the world..

  • Korrava

    I’ve learned this from Ariana: They can air it whenever they want, I’m just really excited for Book 3.

    But at the same time, I really want it to come sooner. So conflicted.

  • JULS

    Hey who else, really want to know who the hell Toph’s dad is?

    • Kyle Edgecomb

      We already know Tophs dad, you mean Lin right?

    • http://www.performerfx.de/ PerformerFX

      Still hoping for Sokka… I think it would also fit Lins personality. IT MUST BE SOKKA!!!!

      • blood red rose

        Yeah, because in the comics tsuki has a crush on zuko and I don’t think that will end well BUT, toph has a crush on another guy.

        My opinion – romance but not really done well
        (If you like drama…)

  • Wyatt

    I’m still counting on September. It just seems more realistic. I mean, I get the idea of the 4 month indicator from the leaked episode titles, but the DVD for Book 2 isn’t coming out until July 1st and the new season usually doesn’t air for another month or two after that. Plus, marketers tend to try to keep their promoted shows on a yearly schedule (begin new seasons the same month every year), so it would make sense that Book 3 would air the same month as Book 2 did last year. Also, comic-con is only the month after June, so I think that Nickelodeon would prefer to wait a little longer to promote the new season at comic-con.

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      I completely agree with that from a marketing standpoint. From what I’ve heard about production, June doesn’t seem like a bad date. In terms of marketing, June seems impossible.

      • Wyatt

        Exactly, June would be ideal for us, but that’s just so soon. Too soon for marketing.

        • Ifreke Umana

          Or they’ll just drop the episodes online before they air it television. I think they did the same thing to the 2nd half of book 3 of Avatar.

  • Professor Farnsworth

    The thing about Comic Con is Nick doesn’t even handle that perfectly from a fan standpoint, and they can’t.
    The [large] hall where they hold their panel is too small for all the people who want to get in, and they have historically put it on a Saturday, despite Sunday being the day “for kids” and usually far less crowded — they didn’t even use Hall H for panels on Sunday… More often than not all of the ATLA/Korra panels (official and/or fan-based) are overcapacity with people not being able to get in (been there, done that).
    So it really wouldn’t hurt Nick to find other avenues to reach out to fandom in addition to the Comic Con panels.

  • Archeops

    I have a feeling Book 3 is going to premiere sometime after Book 2 is released on Bluray and DVD.

  • Kyle Edgecomb

    Hopefully so, then that means book 3 is no more then a month away!

  • Aang

    June? Got it! X)

  • monk Giyatso

    idc as long as it is coming i am happy, but i am i actually hoping that it comes in late june so i can finish my exams

  • Matt Brown

    Hey Keval, i noticed that the Podcast tab wasn’t on the top menu anymore. Is CastBender coming out with new episodes? I know they’re probably busy

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      I think CastBender has ended. That’s the impression I got from Tyrell. He won’t respond to Twitter messages or anything.

      • Matt Brown

        Oh. :( Thanks Keval. And also, what are you looking foward to about Book 3 the most.

        • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

          Exploration

          • Matt Brown

            Yeah. Tha was one of the main things about ATLA that had that I really enjoyed was the aspect of traveling and exploration. Im looking forward to character development but unfortunately, I really feel like the writers have dug themselves into a whole. I mean will they honestly start doing major character development so late in the game when they’re on their second to last season? I wanna see character development bur at this point, I feel like if we do see it, it will be slightly rushed

  • Hi

    I like how you went back to the old website look Keval, it looks good

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      Thank you! Glad you like it :)

      The new one was nice at first, but I felt like I was losing the originality of this blog.
