Studio Mir: Book 3 Animation is Complete, Season Coming Soon

Back in March, a Facebook user asked Studio Mir whether or not they were done animating Book 3.

The comment never received a reply until a little over a week ago. Studio Mir responded, “Korra Provider, we finished animating Book 3 but we are not sure about Nick schedule. Thanks!”

Studio Mir also responded to another Facebook user who asked when Book 3 is coming out. “We do not know when it will be released but it will be pretty soon.”

The last update we had on Book 3’s animation told us that 6 of the 13 episodes had been complete. Now that animation is reportedly finished, production on season 3 will be hitting its final stages.

Composer Jeremy Zuckerman will likely begin implementing his soundtrack into the season in the coming weeks. Mike and Bryan will be busy working on color corrections and scheduling voice overs.

Nickelodeon should (emphasis on ‘should’) begin working on a marketing plan for the season soon. That means that a trailer or clip likely isn’t too far away. As I’ve reiterated before, the re-initiation of Korra Nation essentially means marketing has begun. I fully expect Korra Nation to resume before the end of May.

No matter how it all ends up, this is just another piece of news confirming that Book 3 is on its way.

    I don’t think it’ll be out by July. Seems to be cutting it a bit close, but at least we have some news after god knows how long.

  • claublog

    It’s funny to see how a stupid comment from Studio Mir blows all the internet.

    Bryan Konietzko said that the animation from Book 3 was over some weeks ago, and he even uploaded pics of the celebration.
    A fan who didn’t know it just asked to Studio Mir, and now it comes that nobody readed the tumblr post from Bryan…

    • Josh

      Actually during that time we weren’t truly sure if Book 3 was done animation. It might have been close, but not completely finished. Bryan made that post to say goodbye to all the people who work on the pre production process,(That’s story boards, writing, etc.) Since they had completed writing, and storyboards for Book 4. And for the record I did know that animation was for the most part finished. I just needed true confirmation for myself and the fandom, instead of cryptic messages like, “Coming soon”

  • Eliminator

    I start to hate this word “soon”. It was used back in March and everybody expected a release in April/May. Anyway, exams are a good way to distract from the off season hehe.

  • Link9150

    Now the ball is in Nickelodeon’s court. I’m curious to see how they will handle it.

        Thanks :) As you said, I’ll never be too old for Avatar ;)

  • ajames123

    Basically, this is my day to day life! at least i hope they will release within 2013. The nickelodeon did not mentioned Legend of korra during that upfront, that thing bugs me very much

    • blood red rose

      So funny because it’s so true! Honestly I do the same thing nearly exact

  • Korrava

    The first two episode titles have been revealed!

    Episode 1: “A Breathe of Fresh Air”
    Episode 2: “Rebirth”

    • ajames123

      they removed or changed that listing in the LOC’s copyright archive…

    • Ariana Moreno

      where did you find that? O_O

      • Korrava

        • Ariana Moreno

          is this trustworthy? O.o

          • ajames123

            basically, its Library of congress’s copyright archive, nickelodeon and viacom will not play with it,,

            But, The listsing was changed or removed. later

          • Ariana Moreno

            aah. okay :p

          • Korrava

            I’d say so if it was on their official copyright archive.

      • Eliminator

        It’s not 100% confirmed, but Viacom registered these titles on the USA copyright catalogue website.

        • Ariana Moreno

          ooooo awesome! and hello there elimie! long time no see X)

  • Nico

    I read that the release date for the DVD of Book 2 got delayed. Is this true or just some rumor?

    • Ariana Moreno

      please tell me that’s a false rumor…where did you read that? O.O

      • Korrava

        It’s no rumor, sadly. :(

        • Ariana Moreno

          wwwwwwhhhhhhhatttt?!?!! >.< awwww fooey. whyyy? what's the deal with that? just wondering why -.-

          • Korrava

            They just… pushed it back a month. Maybe they’re planning to do that with Book 3? -__-

          • Ariana Moreno

            you know, i am just rolling with the punches when it comes to book 3. i think september is when they will release it. i was caught off guard with this news about book 2’s dvd that’s all. but yeah, no point in hoping book 3’s release will be sooner, cause i honestly doubt it and have accepted it a lone time ago :D

          • Korrava

            I agree. It’s most likely September.

  • Loklover

    Book 3’s first two episodes titles have been released. Well, it’s not confirmed by Mike and Bryan but KorraSpirit talked about it on twitter and on her youtube video.

    Episode 1: A Breath of Fresh Air
    Episode 2: Rebirth

    • Loklover

      Here are the pictures

  • Aang

    Keval where were you? I was wondering why you didn’t post relating to this before………..

  • Ifreke Umana

    Happy Birthday Link9150!

  • Legama

    Simply, great news. Everything seems to be in order, and on time, for a June/July premiere. The leaks have begun to flow, which is a healthy symptom of the season really being close to be aired :D.
