The last bit of information Legend of Korra fans have been waiting on for 15 months has finally been announced. Nickelodeon has confirmed that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will premiere on Friday, September 13th at 7 pm EST. This confirmation was made through an exclusive clip revealed by Yahoo First Look. Perhaps the clip will also be shown during The Last Airbender premiere too? Many sources had listed Book 2 to premiere on September 7th and I’m still questioning why they ruined their credibility by lying about the release date. Maybe this was just a placeholder date like Amazon had for Book 1’s DVD release date?
Either way, this is just another learning experience. Even though most of us already knew that the sources weren’t entirely reliable, we now know to ignore any future release dates they list for Book 3 or Book 4 completely.
Speaking of future release dates, I think this off-season has taught us something valuable about the premiere date of future Books (Clip is below):
Nickelodeon typically announces the release date for The Legend of Korra just weeks before the premiere. The network announced Book 1’s release date on March 15th and Book 1 premiered on April 14th. In this case, Nickelodeon announced Book 2’s release date today, August 15th and it’s going to premiere on September 13th.
The gap between the announcement of the release date and the actual release is just a few weeks. I suppose this is just something to keep in mind next year so we don’t falsely expect the release date so many times.
That being said, forget about next year. Book 2 is practically right in front of us so let’s enjoy that as much as possible!
