The Legend of Korra: Book 3

***SPOILER DISCUSSION***







Thought I'd get the ball rolling on a Book 3 thread for news and eventual discussion. No airdate is set, but it's been suggested that the hiatus won't be as long as it was between Books 1 and 2. You can discuss Book 1 here and Book 2 here.

"The title of Book 3 is going to be called 'Change,'" DiMartino said. "It’s all about Korra dealing with the change of the world in this point in time. At the end of Book 2 she says it’s a new era. And it really is and we’re going to show how Harmonic Convergence and her battle with Unalaq and Vaatu kind of shifted the world a bit." - Source

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Three: Change

I saw this announcement earlier today, too. I'm curious to see how all this plays out, and I hope that Books 3 and 4 have more of a connection to each other than Books 1 and 2 did.

I kind of hope that this new world order will require Korra and Team Avatar to do some more traveling. I'm a little bored with Republic City and the South Pole. I'd love to see how the spirits will impact the rest of the world. Let's visit Bah Sing Se! Let's go see the Fire Lord! (and make sure you bring Asami along so she has something to do!)

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Three: Change

More about when this should air...

According to a recent post by "The Legend of Korra" co-creator Bryan Konietzko, their collaboration with Studio Mir has Book 3 on track to air much sooner than the 15-month hiatus before Book 2.

"P.S. I forgot to mention, we have seen the first four episodes of Take 1 animation from Studio Mir on Book 3. AWESOME STUFF! They continue to blow us away. The premiere date hasn't been pinned down, but we are on track to airing Book 3 with MUCH less of a wait than the unfortunate one there was before Book 2 aired. We are all incredibly excited for you all to see the new book."

I read some blurb that said that Lin Beifong will have a more prominent role in Book 3 and that we'll see more of the Earth Kingdom. Guess we'll see.

I'd also like to see the Fire Lord and an older Zuko. And now that the spirit world is open, Iroh can come back.

Given how lackluster the ratings are, hopefully Nick doesn't cancel this.

Nick, at least, seems to pay attention to the streaming.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Three: Change

They had a hit show on their hands and then made us wait like 18 months for a new season. They can't be surprised that the ratings have fallen.

Book One: Air drew an average of 4.3 million viewers per episode. This was the highest audience total for an animated series in the U.S. in 2012.[55] Book Two: Spirits premiered with 2.6 million viewers. The reduced number of broadcast viewers was thought to have been influenced by the long period between seasons, a change in time slot (Friday evening instead of Saturday morning), the increased availability of digital download services, and generally reduced ratings for the Nickelodeon channel.
I need to watch season 2, but I didn't feel it after the first two episodes. I feel that the show should have been a miniseries like it was planned but with 15 episodes so the end of season 1 could have been expanded more.

No matter what we are getting 26 episodes and will have about the same amount of episodes as Avatar. But they have introduced this new time / world and now have changed the world it seems. So let's get to exploring the world again!

I didn't either. Too slow and too political. Then the best two episodes of both series aired (episodes 7 and 8) and things kicked into high gear. The story fell into place and started making sense and a lot of interesting game-changing stuff happened. If you ask me, Book 2 had both the worst and best episodes of the Avatar universe. It really was a roller-coaster. High highs and low lows.

The Legend of Korra: Book 3 Trailer

Just saw this today. I've had some mixed feelings about the first two seasons, but this looks frickin' awesome!

I can't find an actual youtube clip to link here. Just the one on Nickelodeon's website.

I saw Roku and his dragon, which I'm excited for. Always loved the episodes where he appeared.

Season One was excellent.

Season Two was an absolute improvement.

Can't wait for Season Three!

That looked amazing! Did I see Old-Katarra and Old-Zuko in action?!
