TLOK and hugs - 1/4
Bryan and Mike really wanted a hug count. :D
We (on the crew) did regularly kid about how many hugs there were in the Korra episodes. Personally, I’ll take hugs over army battles any day. HUG IT UP!
YES! Thank you for compiling this. SPOILER: More hugs on the way.
Anne Heche will make her LoK debut as the voice of Suyin Beifong during this Friday’s back-to-back episodes, airing at 8 and 8:30 EST on Nick!
I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Anne Heche yet (Mike was in all of those recording sessions), but I absolutely LOVE her work in this role. She has a cool, classic, Old Hollywood quality to her voice which suits the time period really well. You get to meet Suyin Beifong and LOTS of new characters in tonight’s second episode.
TOMORROW: Don’t miss two brand new episodes of Korra, starting at 8/7c on Nick!
Howdy, folks! Please note that Korra Nation’s last few posts initially had the wrong air time, which they have since fixed. There will be two back-to-back new episodes tomorrow, FRIDAY AT 8:00 Eastern/Pacific. And the plan is that there will be two new episodes each Friday at 8:00 after that until Book 3 is done airing. Hopefully they’ll stick to that plan, because I think it is cool. I really love these two episodes, which you’ll hear me say about all the Book 3 episodes, although these two were meant to be paired with the previous and subsequent ones, respectively. Oh well, that’s how it worked out. FRIDAYS. AT. EIGHT. BOOM. BYE.
Happy dance! We’re heading to San Diego Comic Con for a Book Three panel on Friday, July 25 and it’s going to be AMAZING!
Hey, guys! The Korra SDCC panel is on Friday, July 25 at 11:15 am -12:15 pm, Ballroom 20. Mike and I are super excited to be joined by Korra panel veterans Janet Varney (Korra), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami), and David Faustino (Mako), and first-time Korra panelists Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong) and John Michael Higgins (Varrick). We’ll be showing a new, never-been-leaked Book 3 episode, and some other cool sneak peeks. Mike and I, along with various special guests, will be doing three signings (that I know of) during the convention. More info on all of that soon. Looking forward to seeing you in San Diego!
Starting July 14, episodes 1 - 3 of Book Three will be available to own online in their glorious HD form.
Yes — Book 3 episodes will begin to be available for purchase online soon. Unfortunately, there is a delay between when the episodes air and when they’re available for purchase. Also, there are 2 NEW EPISODES premiering this Friday at 8PM on Nickelodeon. For the foreseeable future, 8PM Fridays will be Korra’s official time slot. Some great episodes coming your way!

I received this heartwarming message this morning on Facebook from Felix and he was kind enough to agree to allow me to share it with all of you. I hope he gets to see his family soon. And this is a photo of him with his grandmother, who is 88 years old, just about the same age as Mako and Bolin’s grandmother! And no, Felix, you didn’t waste my time. Thanks for sharing.
Hello Mr. Di Martino, First of all congratulations for the premiere of the book 3 of Legend of Korra and second sorry for my broken English, I’m from Argentina so English isn’t my first language.
I have to be sincere here, i love all the seasons with Aang, book 1 of Korra was cool, book 2 was so-so for me (please don’t kill me for saying that) and i was ready for book 3 when something happen… I was watching the 3rd episode: “The Earth Queen” and i cried a lot with the subplot of Mako and Bolin with their family from Ba Sing Se. Since I’m in college studying graphic design i wasn’t able to visit the family of my mother in Paraguay, my uncles, aunts, cousins and my grandmother. They live in a rural area that doesn’t have a lot of money or technology so looking at Mako and Bolin’s family was like looking directly to my family, I even think that we have the same number of family members!.
The hug between Bolin and Mako with their grandmother made me cry, it was something that I really want to do right now with my own grandmother, usually I feel sympathy for characters but it was the first time i feel identified with cartoon characters. That chapter was something really special for me and if I became a professional artist and I create a comic, animation or videogame, I hope that I will be able to reach people the same way you guys did with me. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to pass all my finals at college next month and go at least one week to Paraguay to visit my family there.
Well, that’s all; I wanted to thank you, Mr. Konietzko and the others in the crew for the amazing work over the years and for let me have this special moment thanks to Avatar. I hope one day I will able to repay you all for this in some way in the future. Thanks again and sorry for wasting your time, Felix Horacio “Horade” De Vicenzo.
Mike and I and our stretchy heads met some really cool fans of ATLA/LOK tonight at the second Echo Society concert featuring incredible (separate) compositions by Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn, the composer and the sound designer for ATLA/LOK, respectively. Enriching conversation ensued!
I came into the office today to find another one of those back-lit movie poster things mounted in the garage, this time featuring Lauren Montgomery’s classic A:TLA press art for “The Day of Black Sun.”
With Skylar, the voice of the new Airbender, Kai. He was about a foot shorter when we recorded Book 3. Kai’s all grown up!#legendofkorra #kai
It’s the real-life Ryu! The scene with Ryu (voiced by Jon Heder) and his mom (voiced by Maria Bamford) still cracks me up. #legendofkorra #ryu #vscocam
