Picture of Mako From Book 2 of The Legend of Korra Leaked [Update: Leak is Fake]

Update: It looks like this leak is actually fake. A commentator by the alias of Zhaolives brought this to my attention and explained that this picture is actually an early concept art of Mako that the artist Joaquim dos Santos did back in 2010. Here’s a link to the full picture with Santos’ signature.

It looks like our first potential Book 2 leak has finally arrived. I have to give Avatar Jesal (Avatar Commentator on YouTube) props for finding this one, but I think we can all agree that this leak is not exactly confirmed. It surely looks likes it could be from Book 2 since we can clearly see the snow in the background as well as the clothing Mako is expected to wear, but nothing is official.

I say this because even though this does look fairly real, there are a lot extremely talented artists out there that can recreate things and make them look professional. Remember when I posted about the potential leak of Zuko and his Daughter from Book 2? That turned out to be some fan art someone posted to the internet.

Grey Delisle Reveals Information About her Character in Book 3 of The Legend of Korra

In a recent interview with Ever Free Radio, Grey Delisle revealed information about the character she is currently voice acting for Book 3 of The Legend of Korra. Grey made a conscious effort to ensure that she didn’t reveal too many important details about her character, but she did let a few minor details slide.

Right off the bat, Grey informed us that she has yet to see what her character actually looks like. But that can sort of be expected; after all, the crew is currently in the recording process. Animation and art work don’t necessarily come into play for the voice actors yet.

After that, Grey talked a little bit about her role in Book 3 of The Legend of Korra and said the following about her character:

Book 1 of The Legend of Korra Coming Soon to DVD

Once in a blue moon we actually do get Legend of Korra news. This time, however, it has nothing to do with Book 2. But no matter, any solid news is always welcomed since confirmed updates don’t usually come by that often. Earlier this month, we received a trailer that confirmed that the Book 1 DVD set will be released “soon”.

There is no word yet on an exact date for Book 1’s DVD release, but I’m fairly confident that it’ll be released by Christmas.

If you still have not scene all of The Legend of Korra episodes and you are too anxious to wait until Christmas, you can always view them all in HD for free right here on this blog.

Here’s the trailer Nickelodeon released for the DVD set:

Grey Delisle Beginning to Record New Character for Book 3 of The Legend of Korra

The voice actors of The Legend of Korra are currently hard at work in the Nickelodeon studios recording  voice work for Book 3 of The Legend of Korra. Rumors regarding Book 3’s voice work started off back in October when Seychelle Gabriel tweeted that she was reading the first script for Book 3 of The Legend of Korra. Voice work was pretty much confirmed soon after when Legend of Korra voice actors/actresses used Twitter to state that Book 3 recording had indeed begun.

Now that winter is in the air and November is amongst us, we are officially another month closer to the premiere of Book 2 and another month into Book 3’s recordings. In fact, Grey Delisle was just at the Nickelodeon studios yesterday recording voice work for her new character.

March 1st Release Date Rumor for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is False

Over in the Tumblr-sphere, one Legend of Korra fan thought it would be funny to publish a false blog stating that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra would release on March 1st, 2013. This post ultimately resulted in yet another Book 2 release date rumor that almost everyone believed.

But as I have said in the past, rumors are just rumors. They should be taken as a grain of salt unless someone credible (such as the casts of The Legend of Korra) starts them. In this case, an amateur Tumblr blogger does not exactly represent a credible source.

Even without any credibility, however, this blogger still managed to somehow get 600+ re-blogs on the post. And the rumor was essentially in full go until the blogger graciously put an end to the madness by explaining that he or she had completely made of the date.

Community Opinion: Are The Legend of Korra Books Too Short?

Welcome to the first official Community Opinion post. As you’ve probably already noticed, I have not been posting relevant news and opinions on this blog as frequently I as I have done in the past. Part of the reason behind this is that news and opinions regarding Book 2 are starting to go dry.

Coming up with general speculation about Book 2 is fairly easy, but coming up with speculation that is good enough to share with such a great community is very difficult. Every single one of you deserve the best, so I have no intentions of feeding you implausible material that doesn’t represent my best work.

That being said, in order to continue to post plausible material that keeps the community entertained, I’ll need your help. In “Community Opinion” posts, I will start a topic, and then it will be up to you (the Community) to take a position on the topic and talk about it in the comment section below. Hopefully if everyone participates, it’ll create a community discussion board for others to read and, hopefully, join in as well.

I will still posts opinions and news as much as possible, but in order to get through some dry spots, I will turn to Community Opinion posts.

Now for the topic:

Book 3 and Book 4 of The Legend of Korra Will Likely be Connected

The biggest knock I have on The Legend of Korra so far is the fact that Books 1 and 2 are not connected. For some reason, Nickelodeon Studios decided to green-light 12 episodes of The Legend of Korra, then order 14 more episodes after the first Book proved to be successful. This forced Mike and Bryan to develop the Books separately, causing each one to essentially be stand-alone.

Book 1 of The Legend of Korra covered the story of the Anti-Bending Revolution, while Book 2 is expected to cover an unspecified plot dealing with Spirits.

If Nickelodeon Executives allowed Mike and Bryan to work with 2 Books in the first place (like they should have), Books 1 and 2 would’ve most likely been connected. This would have made Book 1 feel less crammed since many of its plot elements would have been carried over into the next Book.

But even though Nickelodeon undoubtedly made a big mistake by ordering these Books separately, they seemed to have redeemed themselves when they ordered Book 3 and 4 together.
