Creators of The Legend of Korra Explain the Show's Not-Cancellation

In case you didn’t see our explanation from the opening of our SDCC panel in video or in person, this io9 article transcribed it. (One minor note is that I said “cable cutters” and not “cable numbers,” but I mumble so no big deal). You can also find this speech in the first 3.5 minutes of the full video of our panel, uploaded by various people on YouTube, if you want to hear me mumble it instead. Thanks again for the continued, amazing support from fans of the show!

And THANK YOU for this amazing, thoughtful book of personal notes. I can’t wait to read through the whole thing today. *sniff* You guys are the best.

“You gotta deal with it!”: The TV writers behind the powerful female character no one is talking about

michaeldantedimartino:

Nice write up by Scott Thill — he asked us some of the best questions we’ve ever been asked by an interviewer. Check out the link for the interview.

Indeed, this was a really fun and stimulating interview. I encourage you to check it out!

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.

We are thrilled to announce Henry Rollins as the voice of the Book 3 main villain, Zaheer. Henry did a brilliant turn in this role, taking it very seriously from the get-go, going so far as to conduct an in-depth interview about the character, his background, and his motivations with Mike and me on the phone while he was on a spoken word tour––all before he even recorded his audition. If you aren’t familiar with Henry (likely because you were born in the ’90s or ’00s), he is a legendary punk singer, actor, speaker, activist, and radio DJ. He had a hilarious role in our buddy Kurt Mattila’s co-directorial debut, Lies & Alibis. We heard from Kurt back then how incredibly friendly Henry is and what a pleasure he is to work with, and he exceeded even that glowing report. Hearing Henry’s tales of his fearless travels around the world is a real treat. As Mike says, “He actually is The Most Interesting Man In The World.”

Platinum Games' The Legend of Korra Coming in 2014 - IGN

We recently saw gameplay footage from this Activision project and it looks awesome. Platinum is doing a fantastic job with the development. Tim Hedrick, series writer, is writing the game and cooked up the story and villain with Mike and me. And our buddies at Titmouse are animating the cut scenes, one of which you can see in the trailer in this link––very cool stuff. I’m not a gamer, but I might even play this thing! Hope you guys enjoy it. Our character designer Christie Tseng is doing the cover art, and there is some sort of contest where you can vote for which cover you want her to finish.
