Offseason Dry-Spell: Legend of Korra Book 3 News on a Serious Hold

It’s been a while since I’ve published a post about Korra, and I have to admit, I’ve tried really hard to think of worthwhile content to publish. I even started several posts that were deleted over a page-in simply because they didn’t provide any worthwhile content.

But then again, what worthwhile content is there to provide right now? In the world of Korra, news is currently non-existent.

If you want something to ponder on, you can imagine my reaction to getting a $75 parking ticket at my University this morning. That’s the highlight of my day, unfortunately. In terms of Korra-related content, I stumbled upon a picture of Korra standing next to an empty podium that used to house a statue of Avatar Aang. Obviously, the picture was edited so it’s not necessarily news worthy.

I suppose this relates to Korra being cut off from her past lives, which will be interesting to get more information on during the course of Book 3. Until then, our best bet is wait until Korra Nation resume. Once Korra Nation resumes, marketing will have officially been initiated.

As you probably know, with marketing comes the premiere of a trailer and the announcement of a release date. Until then, we will simply have to wait and hope Bryan Konietzko publishes a few more Book 3 images to hold us over.

It’s sort of odd that Bryan’s Tumblr has been so dry as of late. Not sure why that is except for the fact that he’s probably busy working on Book 3 and Book 4.

As you can probably tell, there isn’t much of a point to this particular post. I’m simply writing this to inform you that we’ve hit a dry spell. A point in the offseason when there is literally nothing to talk about. And that’s okay because usually a dry spell is followed up by a splurge of news.

Let’s hope that splurge of news arrives sooner rather than later.

  • Andy Ramirez

    I think we are gonna get it in summer

      • gniddiktsujmi

        Not in Australia! We do have an international audience here, do we not?

      • Loklover

        Hey! So on twitter yesterday Janet Varney tweeted something about her getting ready to “Korra it up” at the CON in Hawaii. Is the “con” like a mini comic con? Cuhs I’m hoping that they will release some book 3 stuff of something! (:

        And by the way, this is NOT and April Fools trick!! I’ll provide a screenshot of her tweet to prove that I’m not fooling you’

        • Link9150

          Loklover, please… Don’t hope for anything. You’ll just get disappointed. She will solely talk about Book 2, and when asked about Book 3 she’ll say she doesn’t know anything. Wait for a creator or Nick to say something. Anything else is completely irrelevant.

          • Loklover

            What’s wrong with hoping? The worst that can happen is her saying that she doesn’t know anything… I’m not going to be dissapointed if she doesn’t mention anything. Imma still have that Book 3 mentality no matter what.

    • not amused

      nice try.

      I can see the website (wikipedia) on the bottom left of mah screen.

          • Link9150

            Entering my Spider-Man fangasm o.o Started reading comics and I just cannot wait for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie to come out!!! Did you see the final trailer? That’s how Spider-Man should be done, badass action, humour, and drama!!!

          • Ariana Moreno

            OH MY GOSH O.O duuuuuuuuuuude!!! DAT. MOVIE. KICKED. ASS!!!! Did you like it? It was amazing and one of the best and most creative movies made in my opinion X)

          • Link9150

            Yeah, liked it a lot. The voice actor for Ralph is the same guy that stars in Step Brothers with Will Ferrell.

          • Ariana Moreno

          • Ariana Moreno

      Huh? Where’s the new Book 3 picture? I don’t see it. I click on it and it when to a page talking about April Fools Day. What the hell? O__O

      • Loklover

        Umm I think Uve been April fooled lol

        • KorraFan7

          It’s not a funny joke. I was happy to see new Book 3 pictures! GOD DAMN IT! >:(

    • Jack Spaulding

      THE ONLY TIME I LET MY GUARD DOWN ARRRGGHH

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

    I doubt a May release. I’m see book 3 in fall. Because it makes sense. Less waiting time till book 4, more people on TV rather than summer and so on…
    But what really fucks me up is the fact that we litteraly know NOTHING. Not even concept arts. All we got is the leaked trailer. Thats it. A shame is that.

  • NicktheGreek503

    I can remember that last year while i was searching the release date of book 2 i came across a website ( which unfortunately i cant remember) which showed the high possible release dates of book 2, 3 and 4. So book 2 had 2013 fall , book 3 had 2015 spring and book 4 2015 among halloween and christmas. I dont know if that is true but it’s the only information provided…

  • Link9150

    I have to admit that I want Book 3 as soon as possible, I am so desperate to see Korra again, miss her so much. But I don’t think anyone should be mad at Nick or anything. They owe us nothing and can release the show whenever they want. I just blame Bryan at this point. He talked too much (or too soon). He made promises when he shouldn’t and once again the fandom pays the price.

    I’m filling this hole with movies, Arrested Development and I recently started to read comics. Just started reading the Ultimate Spider-Man (The one that the first trilogy of movies was based on). Also, my hype for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Godzilla (Heisenberg’s back!!! ><) have wiped my hype for Book 3 off my mind for now, what about you guys?

    • hellyeah

      GAME OF THRONES SEASON 4 THIS SUNDAY!

      • Ian Almeida

        Yes Winter is Coming!!!

        • hellyeah

          But Theon isn’t!

          you know, cause his penis got cut off (spoiler)

    • Ian Almeida

      Not to mention X-Men: Days of Future Past and Captain America the Winter Soldier!!

    • Legama

      Godzilla O.O Heard he will be fighting Rodan and Megan. Oh god im expecting that movie so hard.
      What are your thoughts about the new Trans… I mean Ninja Turtles Movie from Mr. Explosion… I mean Michael Bay.

      • Link9150

        Hahaha xD I’m still conflicted about their faces, but in terms of their body structure, they look pretty good. Shredder being white? Lame. Megan Fox? Lame. Although, it seems that they’ll keep their original natures, recall Michelangelo when he shows himself to O’Neil. And from that one slide in the mountain, the action looks good, this scene also reminded me of Korra when she escapes Amon after being kidnapped by Tarrlock,

        Godzilla vs Rodan and other giants? + Heisenberg? Ohohoho YES!

        • Legama

          I still find it a bit weird to find Malcolm’s dad and Heisenberg in the Godzilla movie. Could it be that all those universes are connected?

          • Link9150

            o-o who knows? But in all seriousness, Bryan Cranston is one hell of an actor. He even played the role of Lyndon B. Johnson (American president during the Cold War and Viet-Nam war) in a Broadway play and he killed his role. Seeing him in another serious movie is going to kick ass!

  • Ariana Moreno

    hm, i don’t really care at this point anymore….i’m excited for book 3, but i’m just gonna wait this out. i have found other awesome stuff to do in the meantime, such as netflix. i am finishing the series called, Bob’s Burgers, which is hilarious! I am also watching indigo league of pokemon again on netfilx, revisiting my childhood X) so, what can we do? Let’s just hope that there is a good reason for this dry delay…

    • Legama

      I been filling this offseason with Naruto, fortunately they release one new episode every week, so there’s always a trusty flow of fillers. There are other shows airing weekly. The Cosmos series is very good, I think they are airing it every Sunday. Also over here Korra is being re-aired every Friday Night and ATLA every Saturday Night ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • Ariana Moreno

        hm, nice! XD yeah, i stopped watching naruto because of all of the fillers. however, i will rewatch certain sagas, and also, the art can be nice, oh and i must say that the music is amazing in naruto! i have never heard of the other shows you mentioned though. X) awesome face expression by the way Xp

        • Legama

          Yeah, Naruto Shippuden soundtrack in specific is really good, most of it is sooo sad and depressive tho. I really think LoK and Shippuden have the best soundtracks out there.

          • Ariana Moreno

            i agree with that :p

          • Ifreke Umana

            Call me crazy, but at times I thought there were similarities between those two soundtracks. Or perhaps it’s just me. :)

          • Ariana Moreno

            its not just you. there were times in korra where i thought, wow, these musical instruments sound very similar to the types that would be used to orchestrate the music in naruto XD

          • Ifreke Umana

            Wow, thanks.

          • Legama

            Yeah, there are a couple of songs in specific that sound quite identical (maybe because they use the same instruments) i gotta search for them and compare them.

          • Ifreke Umana

            That’s cool. I actually watched LOK before I started watching Naruto Shippuden. When I heard the soudtracks in Shippuden, I was like “Whoa, this somehow seems similar to LOK”.

          • Legama

            and this

  • Sibis

    April Fools is coming up. So I was expecting some kind of fake article with speculation out of the wazoo.

    News from Asami’s voice actor has just hinted that Asami’s past will be explored and a major revelation that she was genetically engineered.

  • Link9150

    Just saw something new at Bryan’s Tumblr right now: http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/

    He’ll be attending some sort of Cosplay Ball on April 3rd. Now, I don’t want to get too optimistic, but could something happen? Of course not a trailer, but would Bryan say something relevant?

    • http://avatarthelegendofkorraonline.com/ Keval

      No.

      • Link9150

        Even if he did, I’m sure he’ll only say stuff like; Soon and whatnot.

    • Ariana Moreno

      lets just assume he won’t for the sake of pessimistic safety Xp

      • Link9150

        Haha, I can see you are still practicing the art of pessimism so well, my friend. -Bows down like Aang-

  • Legama

    This reminds me of April 2013, when people was desperate for Book 2 news and Google was full of fake release dates. ¬¬
    But well, the wait better be worth it. (And I think it will)
    Is it me or Spring is always veeeryyy boring. But then, my guess now for this Book 3′s release date is the very first week of June or the last of May.

  • Korrava

    Food.. Water.. Book 3. Jfc we need some Book 3 news.

  • KorraFan7

    GRRRR!!!! I want Book 3 now! I want The Legend of Korra back on T.V It’s taking too damn long :( I WANY KORRA! *cry* D:

  • zdog

    Hey this works for me, I’ll take anything at this point.

  • Sibis

    A little somewhat Korra related news, Boondocks is close to starting its new season this month. “Why does that matter?” you ask. Well it was this very season of Boondocks that won the bid to be animated by Mir while Book 2 of Korra had to be handled by Pierrot.

    • KorraFan7

      O__O Whoa! Is that where they got Korra’s design from? I never seen that show. She looks a lot like Korra.

  • Sid

    The creators should really revise the main character’s behavior ….it’s irritating as the avatar itself is so stubborn and unaware..This series can almost never be as good as the last airbender !!!

    • Jack Spaulding

      I like Korra a lot more than Aang. Aang was a wuss as much as I loved him. He annoyed me at times.

    • Sibis

      A number of Avatars are going to be stubborn. The position and power really inflates their ego. It can cloud their thinking, perception, and understanding. There are either those who stand by the Avatar no matter what or those who question the person under the Avatar cloak.

      Korra is setting herself up for the SWT backlash from Book 2, on a world wide scale.

  • Me

    $75 is A LOT. University parking is stupid. They seem to forget we are broke college students that can barely afford to pay tuition…
