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.

Expect a Legend of Korra Book 3 Release Date Announcement this Summer

When will Nickelodeon announce the release date for Book 3 of the Legend of Korra? About a month ago, Bryan Konietzko wrote that a release date for Book 3 had not been confirmed. This came as no surprise since the release date for Book 2 wasn’t announced until 15 months after the conclusion of Book 1. Now that just one month has passed since Book 2 concluded, it seems as though it’ll be an eternity before we get any kind of release date for Book 3. Or will it?

Several months ago, Bryan Konietzko used his Tumblr page to confirm that the offseason for Book 3 will be much shorter than the offseason for Book 2, which lasted a lengthy 18 months. We can take this to mean that all of the wait times we endured for Book 2 will be much more compacted this time around.

What this tells us is that the wait time for Book 3’s release date announcement, specifically, should be less than 15 months. That doesn’t really do us much good, so let’s dive into some more specifics.
