No Official Release Date Set for Legend of Korra Book 3

Now that our interview with composer Jeremy Zuckerman has had some time to circulate around the community, it’s time to begin breaking down what was said and what was revealed.

Towards the end of our interview, I asked Jeremy when he thought Book 3 would be released. It was more or less a shot in the dark on my part, as I wasn’t expecting much of an answer from Jeremy. Fortunately, he agreed to shed a bit of light on that matter.

After a short pause, Jeremy explained, “[The network] hasn’t decided on a date yet, but we are in good shape as far as material goes. There won’t be long gaps unless [Nickelodeon] decides to do something weird.”

While we can confirm that a release date hasn’t been set, we can’t necessarily assume that Nickelodeon hasn’t set a general time-frame for Book 3’s premiere. I wouldn’t be surprised if the network already have a season set – or even a month.

Could I be wrong? Of course – but networks typically have a targeted release date for a show from the start of production. For all we know, Book 2 might have actually had a targeted April release date all along, but was delayed until September due to the animation issues.

Rumor Busting: IMDB Inaccurately Claims Book 3 will Premiere in May

As I was browsing one of the online forums the other day, I read one post claiming that IMDB (Internet Movie Database) had posted the release date for Book 3.

Questioning the validity of this claim, I checked for myself. Under the page titled ‘Book 3: Change’, I noticed that the published release date for Book 3 read May 2014.

At that point, I didn’t know what to think. IMDB appeared to be a reliable source, so perhaps May 2014 was the true release month? It’s not like it was out of the realm of possibilities either. May 2014 was – in fact – my best guess for Book 3’s release date. I wanted to believe it, but not without solid evidence of my own.

I ran some searches through Google and eventually found myself on an IMDB pro page that specified the reliability of the website: “The information in the Internet Movie Database comes from various sources. While we actively gather information from and verify items with studios and filmmakers, the bulk of our information is submitted by people in the industry and visitors like you. In addition to using as many sources as we can, our data goes through consistency checks to ensure it’s as accurate and reliable as possible. However, there’s absolutely no substitute for an international team of movie buffs with an encyclopedic knowledge of trivia and a large assortment of reference works (and we include in this group many of our loyal contributors). Our sources of information include, but are not limited to, on-screen credits, press kits, official bios, autobiographies, and interviews.”

To validate these claims, I ran an experiment of my own. I attempted to get past IMDB’s “consistency checks” and change Book 3’s premiere date to whatever date I desired. It took longer than I anticipated, but I eventually submitted my changes. Several minutes later, I received an e-mail stating that my changes would be published if verified to be true. Just for the record, I changed Book 3’s premiere date from May 2014 to June 2014.

Nickelodeon Upfront 2014: Time, Place, and Trailer or Release Date for Book 3?

Our first major pit stop of the offseason is just a day away. Tomorrow late afternoon/evening, Nickelodeon will host an Upfront for the 2014 year.

At the Upfront will be potential advertisers for Nickelodeon – not fans of the network as many have suggested. There’s no way to get a pass for the Nickelodeon Upfront because – frankly – it’s not something most people even know about.

It’s strictly meant for advertisers, but it just so happens that the event draws major interest from individual fandoms. In this case, I know most hard-core Legend of Korra fans will be on pins and needles as they await news to come from the Upfront.

Just to clarify some rumors, there will not be a LIVE Stream of the Nickelodeon Upfront tomorrow. This is supposed to be a business event, not a program designed to garner viewer interest. Next – I do not have someone who will LIVE tweet me information from the Upfront. I don’t even know anyone who will be attending the Upfront, unfortunately. So how will we get news from the Nickelodeon Upfront?

Well – from Nickelodeon, of course! Just like last year, we’ll be relying on our favorite network to relay all Upfront news. And it’s not as inconvenient as it may sound.
