The past few weeks haven’t been the best for Legend of Korra fans. All this hype was built up for Nickelodeon Upfront 2013 and then – disappointment. Complete and utter disappointment. But it’s time to move on; dwelling on the past can be dangerous and depressing.
Besides, there are plenty of things we fans have to look forward to. There are, in fact, three pretty big things we have to look forward to in the coming months. And even though I’ve been wrong on pretty much everything up to this point, I think it’s safe to let our guards down and truly anticipate these upcoming events:
The first upcoming event is Matsuri Con which will be taking place on March 29th. The exciting thing about this is that Janet Varney (the voice of Korra) will be showing up to host a Legend of Korra PANEL. She’s not just showing up to sign some autographs for the fans, she’s coming to talk about The Legend of Korra. This was confirmed by a Matsuri Con staff member who sent me the following email a few weeks ago:
Janet is hosting The Legend of Korra panel, autograph sessions and photo ops at the con on Friday only.
I hope that answers your questions!
The Month of April:
After Matsuri Con, the infamous month of April is upon us. In case that doesn’t ring a bell, here is a refresher:
This past August, voice actress April Stewart, who has a role in Book 2, tweeted directly to Legend of Korra fans stating that she has to keep her mouth shut until April and that the wait will be worth it.
So what will April entail? A release date? A trailer? The premiere? More news? All are valid options, but no one really knows for sure and it would be unwise to speculate on such an open matter.
But please keep in mind that the reference to April hasn’t been touched upon since August, so we still don’t know for sure if the events planned for April are still on.
