The Legend of Korra: Book Three News!

by Ian-Michael Turner)

If you thought the season finale of book two was epic, wait until you hear about book three!

First off, the title of book three is "Change". It will serve as a sequel to the previous season Book Two: Spirits. It is said that the next season will come considerably faster than the last.Studio Mir is set to completely animate the entire book, and post-production has begun. Animation work for Book Two was done by the South Korean animation studio Studio Mir as well as the Japanese animation studio Studio Pierrot. Studio Mir was expected to solely work on Book 2, but executive director Jae-myung Yoo decided that Studio Mir would animate The Boondocks instead because the animation process was less rigorous. Studio Pierrot was eventually called in to fill the void and animate Book 2. According to Jae-myung Yoo, Studio Mir was later contacted and re-asked to animate Book 2. Yoo feared that, if Book 2 failed, Studio Mir and Korean animators would have their reputations tarnished for Studio Pierrot's failures. Consequently, Studio Mir accepted the offer and worked alongside Studio Pierrot.It features a lot more Lin Beifong than Book 2, and lets be frank, she was only in bits of episodes 5,6,10-14 barely.

Expect a premier date to bow at this year's comic-con!

After Korra's disappointing ratings for Book Two ( Book One averaged more than 3.4 Million views while Book Two averaged between 1.7 to 2.3 Million views) Book Three maybe Korra's saving grace.The reduced number of broadcast viewers was thought to have been influenced by the long period between seasons and a change in time slot (Friday evening instead of Saturday morning).
