This took way longer than expected, but here’s Korra! 

This took way longer than expected, but here’s Korra! 


Is anyone else wondering what that giant bird thing is, or..?

Legend of Korra Panel

At the panel near the very front of the line! I’ll be posting short messages here and there. Steve Yuen is going to be there for the panel. For the video, I think I’ve devised a method to be able to record it in the event that it is not immediately released online. Furthermore, I’ll be there for the nick signing. Don’t forget that there’s a “big surprise” about legend of korra at 5pm that will be announced at the panel. It may be an exclusive event for the comic con goers or something to do with the release date, so stay tuned.


A gift from the Fire Nation, the Avatar Aang statue stands as a symbol of peace and goodwill. The base of the statue was built to serve as a museum and contains many historical Avatar relics.

Built by Avatar Aang, Air Temple Island is home to Tenzin and his family, as well as many Air Acolytes who are there to learn the ways of the Air Nomads. 

The Air Nomads comprise one of the four nations. There are four air temples at each corner of the globe, all sitting atop mountain ranges. The Air Nomads were the smallest of the four nations, but the most spiritual. They were all but wiped out by the Fire Nation, survived only by Aang and, now his family. The Air Nomad national emblem is a swirling orb of wind. The last Avatar to represent Air was Avatar Aang.

Here’s all of the Book 2 Preview animatics in The Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience iBook! Included is the footage we received from San Diego Comic Con last year, but now in much better quality. 


Okay well before I even give my thoughts on this there’s a few things you should know: 
The animation for that IGN first look thing is not necessarily the final animation for the show that we’re going to get. When the first trailer for The Legend of Korra came out, there were a lot of things that were changed when they eventually put in the final product. 
The only fully animated scene we’ve seen of Book 2 is that IGN clip. Everything else has been a line test / animatic and we can’t judge an entire animation style on that alone. 
Although we don’t really have any information regarding the budget for the show, we do know that this has been a huge success for Nickelodeon financially. I really doubt they would cut the budget significantly for a show that’s providing them with that much revenue / viewership. 
Furthermore, they ordered the remaining 3 seasons right away after seeing the first episode. I’m pretty sure that means they provided the same budget for the production. 
Now with that out of the way, we have quite a bit information regarding the animation process for The Legend of Korra Book 2. 
The Legend of Korra Book 2 will be animated by Studio Mir AND Studio Pierrot. Studio Mir has apparently worked on half of Book 2 while Studio Pierrot has animated the other half. How the work is divided remains unknown. 
Originally, Book 2 was going to be animated by Studio Pierrot only when Studio Mir decided to focus on The Boondocks and not The Legend of Korra, but after a re-request from the Nickelodeon studios, Studio Mir agreed to animate half of Book 2. 
Jae-myung Yoo, the director for Studio Mir has stated that collaborating with Japanese studios can be difficult.In his words, “But the Japanese have a weakness, which is the fact that when they are drawing in the Japanese animation style, they are amazing, but they are unable to copy other styles. This makes them unable to collaborate with a foreign animation studio.” 
Jae-myung Yoo has speculated that there might have been a problem with Studio Pierrot animating Book 2, which is why Studio Mir was asked to collaborate with them. 
Studio Mir will still be working on all three of the remaining seasons of The Legend of Korra.
So what I’m trying to say here is that even though the animation may have changed a bit either because of Studio Pierrot or some other changes, Studio Mir will still be involved to make sure the quality of animation is just as high as it was for Book 1. I do think the animation in the clip is different than it was in Book 1, but again this is not necessarily a final shot and even if it was it’s still a pretty amazing animation sequence.
