Avatar Aang Could Have a Big Role in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra

Since Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is titled ‘Spirit’, it has been well known that The Spirit World will be very important to Book 2’s plot line. Avatar Korra has already mastered the physical side of being the Avatar, but she must still master the spiritual side. This will likely result in a few episodes devoted specifically to The Spirit World.

In case you may have forgotten, Avatar Aang’s first trip to The Spirit World was full of a lot of confusion and fear. At the time, Aang was a novice to The Spirit World, and thus he needed a bit of guidance. So to help Aang out, Avatar Roku was introduced: he helped guide Aang on his quests in The Spirit World as well as his journey to becoming a fully realized Avatar.

When Korra enters The Spirit World in Book 2, there is no question that she will also feel a bit confused. She will likely feel alone and powerless against the elements before her, but I think Korra will soon realize that she’s not as alone as she may anticipate. Just as Avatar Roku helped Avatar Aang, I believe that Avatar Aang will help guide Avatar Korra.

April Will be a Huge Month for The Legend of Korra

A couple days ago, I stumbled upon a tweet by April Stewart (voice actress) in which she proclaimed that she’d have to keep her mouth shut about The Legend of Korra until April. This led me to speculate that April 2013 could be the release date for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra.

While I still believe that this is true, Book 2 releasing in April is not the only speculations that can be made from Stewart’s tweet. As I have previously said, something will have to happen in April to allow voice actors to start talking more about The Legend of Korra. And even if Book 2 doesn’t release in April, further speculation still leads me to believe that April will be a big month for The Legend of Korra.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 to Possibly Release During April 2013

April Stewart, who has confirmed that she will be a voice actress involved in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, may have slipped up a bit on twitter.

She recently tweeted directly to Legend of Korra fans and told them that she’d have to keep her mouth shut until April before she could talk about the show. She also mentioned that it would be worth the wait.

You can see the full tweet below, but if you ask me, it looks like April Stewart may have let the release date for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra slip.

What if JJ Abrams Directed The Legend of Korra Movie?

By now, most of the Avatar Fandom has heard about the potential Legend of Korra Movie. Ever since the news was released, forums, comment boards and even YouTube videos have hosted discussions constantly. Since the idea of a movie is currently a popular topic within the Avatar Fandom, I thought it was a good idea to discuss the possibilities.

If you revisit the Variety article that broke this news, the author mentions that Mary Parent and J.J. Abrams could be involved in a few of the future animated movies being made. Personally, the only movie I’ve ever scene from Mary Parent was Pleasantville, which was for my English Paper last year. So I think it’s safe to say that I’m not too familiar with her work, but I am very familiar with JJ Abrams’ work. If you’re not too familiar with Abrams, let me fill you in: he was the director for movies like Star Trek (2009), Super 8 and Mission: Impossible III. He was also the director for the show Lost.

Based on this, I think it’s safe to say that JJ Abrams is a big-time director. And the fact that he could be involved in one of Paramount Pictures future animated films begs the question: what if he directs The Legend of Korra Movie?

Paramount Pictures to Produce The Legend of Korra Movie?

Paramount Pictures is on the move again. According to Variety, the studio recently hired seven new writers to help with future animation projects. It has also been confirmed that Brad Grey, the chief of Paramount Pictures, has been in search for potential projects for the Studio.

Recent reports suggest that Grey has decided to turn to Paramount Picture’s sister division, Nickelodeon, for a supply of IP’s. Of the potential IP’s listed, the only one that struck me was “The Legend of Korra”.

Picture of Zuko from Book 2 of The Legend of Korra Leaked

Editor’s Note: I just learned that this leak is not exactly new, it’s been out for a bit but it hasn’t spread across the internet very well. So if you haven’t seen it, you have now. If you have seen it, I apologize.

Update: Nico, a commentor on this blog, provided a link proving that this image is indeed fake. You can view the link in the comment section below. Thank you, Nico for providing us with this information.

After browsing through some forums and comment boards, I came across storyboard art that depicted a man with a scar accompanied by his wife and daughter. If you’re an Avatar Fan to any degree, you’d know that the characters in this picture are Zuko, Mai and their daughter who is currently the Fire Lord of the Avatar World.

We’ve known for quite some time now that Zuko is indeed alive during the course of The Legend of Korra, but we never knew if we’d ever see him. Based on this picture, it looks like we can confirm that we’ll at least see him in flashback form.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Release Date Prediction

As the title says, this article is merely a prediction piece. This is simply how I would perceive the Nickelodeon Network to act when it comes to strategically airing The Legend of Korra. None of these assumptions are necessarily confirmed.

Update: Possible Legend of Korra Book 2 release date found.

In case you are unaware, Networks base their Television Schedules on one thing: money. They research trends and data to find the best shows for specific times of the year. The Legend of Korra is a special show for Nickelodeon because it’s one of the Network’s biggest series’, and thus, their biggest source of profit. When The Legend of Korra airs, Nickelodeon has a massive spike in viewers, many of which are not necessarily avid Nick fans. And because of this, Nickelodeon’s ratings as a whole sky rocket causing an influx of potential advertisers who are willing to pay a lot of money to have their commercial aired.

That’s why Nickelodeon ordered 2 more Books of The Legend of Korra, they know how valuable the series is to the Network. And now that DirecTV has dropped the Network (causing a 20% dip in ratings), Nickelodeon will need to ensure that their highest rated series, The Legend of Korra, is aired strategically to boost the Network’s ratings to the highest degree.

That being said, the only way to efficiently predict when Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will air is to research and find the best times for Nickelodeon to have a massive influx in viewers as a whole. Once we find the appropriate time slot, we find a potential air date.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Speculation: Flashbacks

This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. We have currently covered speculation on the book’s setting, character development and villain. Today we focus on the book’s flashbacks.

One of my favorite things about Book 1 of The Legend of Korra was the multitude of flashbacks throughout the season. Not only did they develop the plot line in ways I’ve never seen before, but they also reintroduced the Old Team Avatar in a way that simply felt nostalgic. Flashbacks have proven to be both entertaining and informative thus far, so when I read that Mike and Bryan plan on having them in Book 2, I was ecstatic.

The reading I referred to was an IGN interview with the cast and creators. In that interview, Mike DiMartino confirmed the use of flashbacks in Book 2 and gave a little insight on them too:
