After poking around some forums and comment boards, I noticed that a lot of people came to the consensus that General Iroh II, Zuko’s grandchild, would not be in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. This consensus was formed due to the fact that Iroh II was not mentioned at Comic Con – at all.
I’m here to say that this assumption is completely false. General Iroh II will be in Book 2, and Dante Basco (Iroh II’s voice actor) confirmed it in an interview a while back during the airing of Book 1.
Here is the important part of the interview:
We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.
So there you have it: Dante Basco, a.k.a General Iroh II, has a role in the third or fourth episode of Book 2 of The Legend of Korra.
I can already feel the tension of the fandom fading. Maybe Iroh II and Asami will hook up? I’ll create the shipping title: Irosami.
