After weeks of limp ratings, the Nickelodeon animated series The Legend of Korra has been passed off to the Nick.com website, leaving many to wonder what the future holds for the series. Confusion is never far from the discussion, whether it's from spurned fans or crowing critics. The fans haven't so much hit a rough patch as been dragged through a ravine. Now it holds its breath, unwilling to be hurt again.
Which is all really unfortunate, because season three of Korra is easily the best yet. Voice actor Janet Varney’s Korra continues to be one of TV finest heroines, full of grit, passion, and unbridled talent, while David Faustino’s Mako has mellowed from a high-strung athlete to… well, a high-strung cop, but one who wears his heart on his sleeve. ComicsAlliance sat down with Varney and Faustino at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about where the series has been, where it’s going, and what its legacy will be.
If you're a fan of Avatar: The Legend of Korra, then you're probably having a pretty good week. Not only did Book 3 start up this weekend with the promise of Korra re-founding the Air Nation and going up against a team of super-powered crooks bent on destruction -- including an Water Bender who uses tendrils of water and ice in place of her missing arms, which is awesome -- but today marks the release of Book 2 on home video, for anyone who needs to catch up.
As you might expect, the Blu-Ray/DVD has more to offer than just the episodes of the show. There's a whole list of special features, including one where show creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko discuss the family dynamic that influenced the second season.
Though it won't air on television until this Friday, Nickelodeon posted the finale to The Legend Of Korra Book 2: "Spirits" online over the weekend, which means that it's already been widely discussed on the internet. It also means that series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko are likely a bit more comfortable publicly discussing some aspects of the season's conclusion, as well as the title for the upcoming Book 3, which was revealed today.
If you haven't already seen the finale, fair warning: there are significant spoilers after the cut.
For fans of The Legend of Korra, it's been a long wait since the Avatar's triumph at the end of Book One, but now, we're finally closing in on the debut of the show's second season. At Comic-Con, we sat down with show creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, as well as cast members Janet Varney (Korra), PJ Byrne (Bolin) and David Faustino (Mako) to find out how they approached the intensity of the first season and what they've got in store for the next three.
I'm a huge fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender, so it almost goes without saying that I love the follow-up series, The Legend of Korra, just as much. Like a lot of fans, I came away from the season finale wanting to know more, and fortunately, Comic-Con gave me the chan
It's been nearly four years since Avatar: The Last Airbender concluded its original run on Nickelodeon, and in that time the Eastern-influenced fantasy epic has spawned a live action motion picture, a comic series and more. What fans were really wa
