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’s villain will be a new threat, not a direct tie to the Red Lotus. source
  • The Airbenders will take on a peackeeping Jedi Knight-like role. source

Book 4 production progress:

  • 25/08/2014 - Book 4 is “essentially done” with post-production being worked on for the “rest of [2014].” source
  • 25/08/2014 - Book 4’s dialog recording is complete, and the cast will return to do grunts and other natural sounds when animation is complete. source
  • 06/06/2014 - The design/color stage of production is “in the home stretch.” source
  • 07/03/2014 - The animatic stage of production is complete. source
  • 11/09/2013 - 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!

I feel a little better now.
I think that’s what everyone wants to do, right?

It’s funny there are people who are so attached to the original series and it’s funny because when they confront us and they write us critical things like they’ll write us a little fan letter like… Mike and I remember during Avatar how people would be like ‘I don’t like this, and kind of whining about every little thing in the show, and really mad about how a season finale would end, and ‘I can’t believe you’d put the characters through that,’ and now that years have been removed from that, the feedback we get now about Avatar is like, ‘It’s perfect, there is nothing wrong with it, and every moment of it is perfect,’ and I don’t think every moment is perfect, I have tons of problems throughout the series, but I love it and I’m proud of it. And then with Korra they’re nitpicking every little thing and there’s a lot of comparing of Korra to, not just the shows, but comparing the character of Korra to Aang like ‘Aang was such a sweet, gentle soul, and Korra is just, she’s awful!’ …I always think back at New York Comic Con, it was at a point early in Book 2 where Korra was kind of going off the rails, and I remember Mike and the writers really wanted this civil war, she’s gonna take it very personally and it’s gonna cloud her judgement, and she’s not making good decisions. And people really didn’t like it, and I remember being interviewed in New York and they were like, ‘People hate Korra… so why did you do it?’ And I was like wow, and like, Aang was like going on a rampage in the middle of the desert beating people up because someone took his bison."
