Still think that I’m a half-baked Avatar?
nickelodeon has aired the last airbender movie multiple times with more advertising than they ever did for korra. who is making these decisions
"I am certainly proud to add Korra to the pantheon of TV characters, which is perpetually sorely lacking in multifaceted female characters who aren’t sidekicks, subordinates or mere trophies for male characters. The notion that she is the most potent female character you can think of, and no other comes to mind, in a time when I hear there are more TV shows in production than ever before, is pretty depressing. Hopefully, Korra and our many other dynamic female characters, including the new ones we will be introducing in Books Three and Four, will help inspire kids and adults alike, open doors for more main female characters in all media."
Bryan Konietzko, on the cultural impact of Korra as a strong female lead (X)
I was very careful how I built the movie. One of the other things I decided was that I wanted a female lead who has the equal force as the male leads. She’s not going to be a sex kitten, she’s not going to come out in cutoff shorts and a tank top, and it’s going to be a real earnestly drawn character. Guillermo del Toro
im still laughing at that photoset i reblogged the other day of pictures of my college campus in winter (and it was v random that it came across my dash it didnt even come from my actual college friends im following) and the tags say things like “it looks like a ghost story” and im like you doNT EVEN KNOW
BOOK 3 MOVING TO DIGITAL RELEASE!
Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT cancelled, 2) the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.
Thousands of you have been asking to watch this incredible show online, so hopefully this news works in your favor. Mike and Bryan created a breath-taking season for us all…so get ready to watch it all go down!!!
Thanks for being the BEST fans in the industry and see you at Comic-Con.
Foiled again by Dickelodeon ! I am French so I've always watched it online,for me there no difference. But it still suck, this show doesn't deserve it :(
yeah. and as we’ve said, it’s nickelodeon’s fault for the abhorrent lack of promotion or advertising—it’s not fair to the show or the crew to stick it online, where the actual target audience probably won’t know they’ll be able to watch it. and younger kids should be watching this show. it’s so important for them to have media like this, and it’s just been made that much less accessible. i’m sad for them, and i’m sad for the creators.
i really, really hope that the online streaming does well. i’ll probably pay for it on amazon even though i can watch on nick, so i can watch on a television through my ps3 and support the show with some bank. if it does, maybe they’ll re-air book 3 and put 4 back on as well? it’s a long shot, but worth a hope.
New Korra Merch!
You can now pre-order some of the merch being sold at SDCC on Dark Horse!
So far,(according to elventhespian’s flickr), the seemingly new Naga plush and other things aren’t up yet.
my writing style is one sweeping story catching little moments in between the telling. it does not adapt well
korra not being on tv means there’s THAT many more little brown girls who aren’t going to see themselves represented in the tv shows they watch and that fucking sucks
hey, a tip to ppl making posts or asks about how people are “blowing this out of proportion” or even one i’ve seen to “calm down you fuckheads”—stop. you’re being an ass. you’re on a website where ppl post ten million gifs in one post about how jared padalecki makes them drown in…
But this is bad for season 4!! I doubt there gonna make one at this point
don’t worry about season four. it’s well into production, and that’s expensive. it would be thousands of dollars down the drain not to finish and air it, and if anything we do know nickelodeon loves dollars. for all we know they’ll either do the same thing with book four and release it online on a paid service like amazon prime, or depending on how well the rest of b3 goes online they may air it on tv again. book 4 has been worked on for years, and we will get to see it.
girls don’t like boys girls like avatar korra
hey, a tip to ppl making posts or asks about how people are “blowing this out of proportion” or even one i’ve seen to “calm down you fuckheads”—stop. you’re being an ass. you’re on a website where ppl post ten million gifs in one post about how jared padalecki makes them drown in feels, ofc people are going to be upset about a network mishandling their favorite show whether or not it’s cancelled. it’s not airing on tv any more and it’s not getting out to new fans, and information comes even to the most dedicated/sleuthing of online fans only a day or two before major changes. so yeah, watching korra online instead of on tv isn’t really changing my life in any way, but i’m still frustrated and find tumblr a good place to express that.
