Morgan (Airspeed Prime) is joined by Kelly (Gemini530), Greg (Greg2b) and for a few minutes Callum (Badgermole1) to discuss all of the Korra news that came out of SDCC 2014. We discuss Korra’s move to digital, the Panel, the video game footage and even the exclusive SDCC Korra merch, all of it is covered here.
If not for the switch to digital and 1 episode this Friday this special would not have happened :)
Nice to continue it for a 3rd year in a row. Always fun to discuss how good the comic con Korra news is. This year the clear highlight was the video game.
Morgan (Airspeed Prime) is joined by Greg (Greg2b), Kelly (Gemini530), Troy (Trojan People) and the returning Harrison (Hyriu85) to discuss K306 “Old Wounds” in great detail. We also cover the news at the start.
With Episodes 4 and 5 airing on July 11th, here is a projected schedule (aka this is not real) for Book 3, assuming no breaks (this is likely as there are no holidays to break for after July 4th) and no more doubling up (more on this at the bottom):
- July 11: Episodes 4 & 5
Nickelodeon have confirmed that both Book 3 episode 4 In Harm’s Way & episode 5 The Metal Clan will air on July 11th as a one hour special!
The Korra Roundtable returns for Book 3 Change with our discussion of K301 A Breath of Fresh Air. Morgan (Airspeed Prime) is joined by Troy (Trojan People), Greg (Greg2b) and Kelly (Gemini530) to discuss the opening episode of Book 3 Change in-detail. We also give our thoughts on the recently announced Korra video game.
I love doing these roundtable podcasts, they really have become an essential part of a new episode of Korra to me. Really helps me form my opinion on Korra as a whole.
In the last pre Book 3 regular episode Morgan (Airspeed Prime) is joined by Kelly (Gemini530), Greg (Greg2b) and Troy (Trojan People) to discuss the Book 3 Change premiere details and other news. We explain the podcast schedule for Book 3 before ending with a discussion topic on Spirits in Avatar and Korra.
Last regular episode until Book 3 ends, Korra Roundtables will begin next week :)
Another fun show, we were not sure how the spirits discussion was going to go, but it was really in-depth and interesting.
The Legend of Korra, Book 3: Change, will begin airing Friday, June 27th, at 7pm EST with three episodes that day. There will be no new episode the following week due to July 4th, and the rest of the season will air regularly at 8pm EST starting July 11th. Due to the extremely short notice, many people don’t know of these dates, so please get the word out and tell everyone you know! More info & an exclusive clip can be found here.
Korranews presents: the 333 project.
Book 3: Change. 3 premiere episodes. 3 million viewers goal.
Why a viewership goal of 3 million? In 2012, Book 1 of The Legend of Korra premiered to 4.55 million viewers and averaged 3.71 million. This was when the series had a Saturday morning time slot, engaging, exciting advertising, and as a result: successful ratings. Beginning with the wait for Book 2, Nickelodeon stopped communicating with fans, and when it finally arrived, the show was subsequently moved to the Friday night “death slot,” had little marketing, and had the air time changed with no warning several times.
Book 2 premiered to 2.60 million viewers, at one point dropping to 1.10 million, averaging only 2.06, and failing to even near 3 million again.
Well now we have arrived at Book 3. We can’t let Nickelodeon’s heinous mismanagement of this fantastic show cripple its ability to reach the wide audience it deserves.
There is one week until the Book 3 premiere and in that time, Korra fans can help it reach the goal of 3 million viewers by doing any and all of the following things:
- share the trailer
- share the recently released clips
- share and create other content such as fan art, fan fiction, and memes (yes) about the show
- do so on various social media such as facebook, twitter, tumblr, and reddit, and in real life, whatever is at your disposal
- on twitter, even just mentioning the show and your excitement for book 3 is free publicity. we may organize an attempt at trending something closer to release!
- always indicate the premiere date and time: Friday, June 27th @ 7pm EST
- share the goals of the 333 project elsewhere using the hashtag #333project to maximize the number of people on board
Team Avatar is back!
The Legend resumes on Friday, June 27th @ 7pm EST.
