Korra’s creators guest to talk Book Four and the past and future of the franchise. Plus new on Agent Carter, a Big TV show and more.
Mike and I sat down with some nice folks over at IGN this week to discuss Book 4––which premieres online tomorrow, Friday Oct 3. Or possibly tonight at midnight, as it seems some of the streaming outlets tend to release it on the early side. Check out the video podcast in the link above. Hope you enjoy the premiere!
The Legend of Korra is back with new episodes every Friday on Nick.com and the Nick app!
Here is the Book 4 trailer Bryan and I personally oversaw. This being the final season, we wanted to create one last awesome trailer. But we couldn’t have done it without Jeremy Zuckerman’s score, Chris Hink’s editing, Matt Gadbois’ motion graphics, and Matt Cawood and Joe Alessandra's CG work.
The last duo of Boys of Summer: the insanely talented and terrific Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the minds behind Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Art! Music! Travel! Adventure! And of course, squirrel suits. PLUS! A…
Janet was kind enough to have me and Bryan on her podcast. Thanks Janet!
Activision reveals The Legend of Korra game release date & new mode, plus the cast & creators delve into Book 4 & the big Book 3 finale.
Four cool videos over at IGN:
1) Interview with Robert Conkey, the producer from Activision on the upcoming Korra video game, which is to be released on October 21st!
2) A bunch of gameplay footage of the Pro-bending mode in the game, with Rob explaining everything in voice over. Dude… I can’t tell you how cool it is to see this sport we created in all of its chaos and fury––without us having to draw it. They even have the tiebreaker face-offs!
3) Interview with Mike and myself about the ending of Book 3, the video game, and some tiny tidbits about where Book 4 is head (TINY ones). I was really sleepy.
4) David Faustino (Mako) and Janet Varney (Korra) talk about love.
Thanks to the fantastic folks at IGN for having us!
Preview and download the podcast Nerdist Writers Panel on iTunes. Read episode descriptions and customer reviews.
Bryan and I were guests on the Nerdist Writer’s Panel podcast with Ben Blacker. We talked about the creation of the show, the move to digital, and even about the Movie That Shall Not Be Named. Ben does a great job with the podcast and has had some big names on in the past, like Matthew Weiner, Damon Lindelof, and Vince Gilligan, so I was honored to be one of his guests!
UPDATE: Here’s another link to the Nerdist website where you can hear it directly.
My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.
”—My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)
A beautiful letter from Zelda Williams. Thinking about you and your family, Zelda. Love to you all.
'Legend Of Korra' season 3 is now online only! Find out the best sites to watch the remaining Book 3 episodes via the interwebs!
Here’s a good article that lists the viewing options for Legend of Korra as it currently stands. Unfortunately, it’s not available on iTunes at the moment. Episodes will be available on Nick.com at 12 PM eastern every Friday, starting this Friday, Aug 1st (the other outlets should be available shortly thereafter, with Hulu being a couple weeks behind the others). One episode per week, until Aug. 22nd, when the 2-part finale will be released. Thanks for sticking with the show! Some of the best episodes are yet to come.
The news came yesterday that Book 3 of The Legend of Korra was being pulled from Nickelodeon to air online. So of course the creators of the show had to address it at this morning’s Comic-Con panel — which they did, before moving on to celebrate the show.
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!
