The Legend of Korra: Book 4: Balance Blu-Ray Review

The Legend of Korra may have ended this past December, but that doesn’t mean the series is done delivering surprises. On March 10th, Nickelodeon will release the Blu-Ray and DVD edition of the series’ final season, Book 4: Balance. While the DVD edition is certainly adequate for the average fan, the Blu-Ray edition is a much more souped-up copy, best suited for the hard-core fan interested in all of the behind the scenes features. The Blu-Ray copy contains: audio commentary for all 13 episodes, an exclusive poster by co-creator Bryan Konietzko, Kuvira vs. Prince Wu, Republic City Hustle Part 1, 2, and 3, a New York Comic-Con Featurette and “The Making of a Legend: The Untold Story – Part II.”

The Blu-Ray edition certainly comes well-packaged. The disk-case comes with a beautiful, embroidered-feeling cover that replicates the case on both the front and back. Inside the disk-case, you’ll find two disks along with the exclusive poster by co-creator Bryan Konietzko latched onto the left side. The disks split the episodes, with the first disk holding episodes 1-7 and the second disk holding episodes 8-13.

If you’d like to have a look at the exclusive poster, you’re in luck because I scanned it in and uploaded it as a PDF so you can print it out if you’d like. You can download the PDF using the link below (share this page using the buttons provided to reveal the download link):

Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to clarify that I’m not resuming this blog – I’ve moved onto other projects that I mentioned in my “farewell” post, and I plan on giving you updates on those projects in this post. Why this particular post? Because, I’ve decided to intertwine the projects I’m currently involved in with Mike and Bryan’s future television series – which I will be giving you a small bit of insider information on in this post.

But first thing’s first: How did I stumble upon this insider information? Over the years, I’ve grown to meet many people (most have become good friends of mine) who are heavily involved in this fandom. People who – like myself – have made contacts with several people involved in production of The Legend of Korra. I get together with these people on Skype from time-to-time and we swap information. That’s how I’ve gotten the majority of the inside information I’ve posted on this blog.

About a month ago, I had a Skype conversation with a good friend of mine who has a close relationship with a group of people who – at the time – had recently interviewed Mike and Bryan and learned some off-the-recording information about their upcoming new series along with an alternative Book 4 ending. The off-the-recording information made it up the ladder and fell into my lap, thanks to the good friend of mine who I had spoken with on Skype.

I’m sure the mention of an alternative Book 4 ending perked your ears: unfortunately, I’m forbidden from publishing any details on it – I’m really sorry.

As for Mike and Bryan’s new series: I am able to tell you about that.

Big Thank You to our Readers… our Family (and Future Plans) [Update #1]

What an incredible journey it’s been. If you told me that I would’ve successfully cultivated an online community three years ago, I would’ve laughed in your face. After numerous trial-and-error failures, I was ready to give up on blogging back in 2011. I created numerous blogs – ranging in topics from video games to other entertainment mediums – and none of them took off. Television was my last shot, and I wasn’t going to attempt the new niche with any ordinary show. Fortunately, The Legend of Korra rolled around and, well… here we are now… three years later.

I can’t begin to tell you what these past three years have meant to me. Writing for this fandom taught me so much about myself as an individual. This fandom gave me the opportunity to express myself creatively in ways I never thought possible. Sure, there were some ups and downs throughout the journey, but being able to share this adventure with you – the Avatar fandom – was priceless. You, the readers, are the reason why this blog was successful. You, the readers, are the reason why I continued to write. You, the readers, are the reason why I will continue to write (more on that soon). You, the readers, truly changed my life for the better and I can’t express how grateful I am for each and every one of you. Your willingness to read and comment over the years has meant so much to me.

I remember doing an interview about this site with other fellow fandom members, and they told me that I had the best Avatar community out there because all of you were so friendly and mature. Sure, there were the occasional ass-hats and trolls, but for the most part, this community has been raved about positively. When I heard that, I couldn’t help but to feel like a proud father. That’s when I realized that all of us here… we’re basically family. We fight, we argue, we discuss – but in the end, our love for each other is strong because we all share a common interest: Avatar. Over the past three years, this community has been amazing, and it truly fit the mold for what I hoped to create. Thank you all for being so incredible.
