When I logged onto Twitter today, I noticed that my home feed was filled with something quite uncommon: information about The Legend of Korra. Even though I follow the voice actors on Twitter, most of the time they’re tweeting about things that are totally unrelated. Once in a blue moon, however, they do drop some sort of Korra-related tweet. Today both Janet Varney and Grey DeLisle had tweeted about The Legend of Korra and both tweets essentially confirmed that the voice work on the show was still in progress.
They didn’t really say anything about the specifics of what they’re recording, but at this point it’s either Book 3 or Book 4. All the way back in October, Seychelle Gabriel (voice of Asami) got a bit antsy on Twitter and basically confirmed the start of voice work for Book 3.
Since then, voice actors have been dropping a lot of hints about when recording (or reKorrading) was in progress. Thanks to Seychelle, it was always fairly obvious that Book 3 was being recorded, but today was the first time in a while since we were given hints about the recording schedule.
Is it possible that the recording for Book 3 is complete and Book 4 recording is underway?
The team has already had a solid 7 months to record Book 3, but even though they’ve had that much time in the recording studio, it’s tough to jump to the conclusion that Book 3’s voice work is done. I can’t imagine a scenario where we get official word about it anytime soon either. Seychelle obviously wasn’t supposed to say anything about Book 3’s recording status since her tweet was quickly deleted, so I’m sure the voice actors were told to ensure that there are no slip ups this time around.
I tweeted Janet Varney about, but I don’t really expect to get a straightforward answer from her. If I do get some sort of official information, I’ll post it, but for now I think it’s all a matter of opinion.
Do you think voice work on Book 4 has begun?
