Earlier today, the Nickelodeon Animation Press Event took place and according to sources who attended the event, Nickelodeon discussed Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. Nickelodeon started off by explaining that there was still no release date/month planned for Book 2, but they did have a clip to share with the attendees.
According to Eric Goldman of IGN, Nickelodeon showed off a pretty awesome action scene from Book 2 and then confirmed Book 2 for “later this year.”
Thought we still don’t have a solid release date for Book 2, the news about the clip should be very exciting for a fandom that has been left in the dark. Even though Nickelodeon hasn’t released the trailer to the general public, they essentially released it to the media.
And what does the media do?
Keep in mind that this is a press event. This is where Nickelodeon reveals information so that the press or the media can release it to the public. It’s like a press conference. The only solid information the media received from this event was a clip of Book 2, so what do you think IGN’s next article about The Legend of Korra will be about?
I’m not saying that we’ll definitely get to see the clip that was released, but things are starting to move in the right direction. Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is starting to get exposure. And if I have anything to do about it, I’m sure I’ll be able to bug some people on Twitter enough to get them to release some early information about the clip they saw.
I can be annoying that way.
Besides the clip, we now know that Book 2 will come out “later this year.”
