A beautiful scene of Korra fighting the metal bending police with Republic City in the background. While Korra seems to be having a good time, I can’t say the same for the guy holding on to her…
What looks like some early drawings of Korra. It’s interesting to see how her character design developed.
A nice sketch of Korra water bending and fire bending at the same time, which is pretty cool. Also those are some pretty funny Korra faces. I love the one in the bottom right.
Here we see some of Korra’s outfits and drawings of cute baby Korra. “I’m the Avatar and you gotta deal with it!”
This shows some intersting shots of what looks to be the slums of Republic City, where I assume Mako and Bolin grew up. Also some cool early early character designs for the brothers.
Here get see the finished designs for Mako and Bolin. Mako looks as broody and angsty as usual while Bolin looks as sexy as usual.
Some hilarious Bolin faces with a few Mako drawings as well. Bolin really has the best expressions.
The wait for new episodes of The Legend of Korra has been more difficult for fans, since that show aired its 12 episodes with nearly no breaks last year, but has been gone for quite some time. Fans have the comfort of knowing there are still three more “Books” to go in the series, but so far, we haven’t been given a debut date for Book 2. That didn’t change today, as Nick could only say Korra would be back “later this year.” However, we were shown a cool new scene from the upcoming episodes.
We’ve known since last summer that Book 2 is subtitled “Spirits,” and Nickelodeon’s Rich Magallanes noted that in Book 2, the divide between the human world and the spirit world was collapsing and Korra finds, “the dark spirits are seeping into her world.”
The sequence we saw found Korra battling one of these spirits, initially just seen as dark tentacles, surrounded by a purple energy, coming out of the ground on a hillside. Korra asks, “Spirit, why are you so angry? What have we done to offend you?” only for the tentacles to violently knock her aside, as they do to anyone else who attempts to help her, including Tenzin and an adult, male Water Tribe member I didn’t recognize at a glance.
Then, the full octopus-like creature rises out of the ground, and begins moving down the hill, utlimately crashing through a fence into a carnival being held, as Korra pursues it. On the offense, Korra shoots the creature with fireballs and begins to get the upper hand, but she is suddenly grabbed by one of its tentacles, and smashed down into the ground. And… we cut to black, for now.
And sorry, my fellow Korra fans, Nickelodeon is not releasing this scene to the public for the time being. As the scene was introduced, they noted that there is still a lot of work to be completed on the animation side for Korra: Book 2 - though the scene in question still looked terrific, even if it wasn’t in its final form. Suffice to say, it hinted at some very exciting things to come.
Hello fellow Hotman! It’s about time I was able to write up something Korra related. Though it’s not what you want to hear, it shows that there is indeed progress on the horizon.
At an Animation press event, Nickelodeon announced that Legend of Korra will air later this year, and showed those in attendance a short action clip from season two.
What does this mean? Legend of Korra will most likely air this fall, so don’t get your hopes up for a summer date. Though no date or month was announced, the fact that they have confirmed its arrival is a step forward, even if it’s a very small step.
