    The Legend of Korra Book 4 Facts and Rumor Roundup

    The Final Season

    Hopefully to curb any misinformation, here is everything we know about Book 4:

    • Book 4 will be 13 episodes long.
    • Studio Mir will animate ALL of Book 4.
    • Book 4 will constitute the end of The Legend of Korra.
    • Jason Isaacs (Zhao, Book 4 likely a new character), Jason Marsden (Aye-Aye, Huan), and Anne Heche (Suyin Beifong) recorded at least one scene with Kiernan Shipka (Jinora). source
    • Korra will still have fight scenes. sources 1 & 2
    • Korra and Katara have a scene together. source

    Book 4 production progress:

    • The animatic stage of production is complete. source
    • The design/color stage of production is “in the home stretch.” source
    • Voice recording is likely complete based on the fact that it has been ongoing since at the latest September of last year.

    Unclear information / rumors:

    • Book 4 is rumored to be titled Balance. This is claim is completely unfounded but possible.
    • Given that Book 1 focused on Korra learning Airbending, Book 2 on the Water Tribes conflict, and Book 3 on the Earth Kindgom, it is likely Book 4 brings us to the Fire Nation and current Fire Lord, Zuko’s daughter.
    • Kuvira (voiced by Zelda Williams) was name-dropped several times in the finale seemingly without purpose, as well as having a sinister musical theme play when introducing herself. For these reasons it is likely she is being set up for a bigger role in Book 4, possibly as a villain.
    • Book 4 is rumored to have a January 2015 release based on the fact that this is when the Book 3 Artbook comes out, and the previous Artbooks have had releases timed approximately with the next season. Beyond this grasping-at-straws connection, January seems like a reasonable release time considering how far along production is and the fact that online distribution eliminates Nick’s scheduling issues.
    • Bryke have stated that 2014 was Korra’s last big SDCC panel, meaning that Book 4 will be released before summer of next year. This further supports the Q1 2015 rumor, as well as the likelihood of us getting our first look at Book 4 at NYCC this year, October 9th-12th.

    More and more Book 4 information should be coming out soon, and this post will be kept up-to-date as it happens!


    Valjean: After I suffered 19 years at Toulon, a sentence totally disproportionate to my crime...
    Sweeney: After I suffered 15 years in Australia, a sentence given despite my never committing a crime...
    Valjean: I thought I'd lost all faith in humanity.
    Sweeney: I thought I'd lost all faith in humanity.
    Valjean: And just when it seemed like I could finally start anew...
    Sweeney: And just when it seemed like I could finally fulfill my goals...
    Valjean: I was thrown into emotional turmoil at the world's kindness.
    Sweeney: I was thrown into emotional turmoil at the world's bad timing.
    Valjean: Now I'm hit by an epiphany.
    Sweeney: Now I'm hit by an epiphany.
    Valjean: I have to become a better person.
    Sweeney: I have to kill motherfucking EVERYONE.
    William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death.




    Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

    On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

    Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

    And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
