2013 Korra SDCC Panel Information Summary

37 Comments

Airspeed Prime here just like the past two years to cover SDCC for the site. As usual I am not at the convention, but I will be compiling all of the available information from the panel into this post.

Book 2 spirits poster

Like last year this post will constantly be updated so refresh this post every 2-3 minutes to see what news there is. If the past two years are anything to go by, images and video will come out after the panel ends. I will post the sources of the information after the panel ends as there will be a lot. Finally since we know Book 2 Episode 1, Rebel Spirit will be shown I will put the reports of the episode in a spoiler section at the bottom of the review away from the other news.

  • Still an hour to go until it begins, but as far as I can tell Ballroom 20 is already packed with Korra fans
  • My browser tab count is currently at 13 as I try to find as many sources who will be covering the panel live.
  • 30 minutes to go
  • 15 to go, don’t worry I won’t do a full on countdown, next one will be when the panel is starting.
  • Panel before Korra is over, I assume Mike, Bryan and the crew will be arriving soon.
  • Just in case you are hearing that there are livestreams of the panel out there, there are not, the interviews after the panel will be livestreamed on IGN. We are going off text reports here.
  • According to Korra Nation the SDCC Korra fan art winner will be announced soon at the panel.
  • Seems like the panel has just began.
  • Panel opens with a Book 2 trailer with some slow yet beautiful music
  • Book 2 coming in September, I called it 🙂
    Korra September
  • Trailer featured Asami, Wan, Wan Shi Tong, Kya and Tenzin falling down a waterfall…
  • Jinora enters the Spirit World with Korra, Asami is seen crying, Wan and Korra both entering Avatar State
  • Bryan says that they have a tonne of content for us
  • Like last year they mention the new additions to the creative team for the rest of Korra. Colin Heck, Lauren Montgomery and Ian Graham. New writers/directors for the upcoming episodes.
  • Josh Hamilton and Tim Hedrick are back as writers, they wrote many ATLA episodes
  • Up next is the Book 2 Episode 1 premiere.
  • While the episode airs I will upload some pics, just a few as I will have more time afterwards
  • Korra Nation posted this Mako GIF
    Mako GIF
Wan Avatar

I think this is Wan entering the Avatar State

  • Korra Nation with an Airkids gif

  • Varrick GIF

  • Eska gif
    Eska GIF
  • They are into a Q and A session now, first question up is how did the VA’s get into voice acting. I will only post if their is good info.
  • The voice actors talk about seeing that episode for the first time and their first gigs as actors
  • Next up is a sneak peak of Avatar Wan, the first Avatar
  • Just saw that episode 1 was written by Tim Hedrick
  • “There’s an origin story of the Avatar, we’ve kicked around since season 2 of Avatar,” says Mike.
  • Flashbacks have a different art style, stylised, wood block, nice paintings with textures.
  • Wan is the original Avatar from 10000 years before Korra. His animal is a cat-deer named Mula.
  • Other characters are a large man in red with a headdress and a Lemur esque human sized creature that is a light spirit, which we have ever seen before.
  • Humans can be altered by Spirits
  • “Wan has several costumes – young and ragged Earth Kingdom style, more put-together Fire Nation style, very wrapped and somewhat Water-ish.”
  • They reveal the fan art winners, which Korra Nation just put up here, http://korranation.tumblr.com/post/55890956849/live-from-the-lok-comic-con-panel-mike-bryan-and
  • Some of the spirits are tributes to Miyazaki
  • Korra Nation just revealed that the 5pm surprise is just that there is a scavenger hunt for anyone at the convention, where they can win prizes. We have still yet to get what us online fans who cannot attend will get to see, Nick did tease something. I assume at least the trailers will go online.
  • Mike mentions there is no specific date in September, but it is for sure that month.
  • TRAILER IS ONLINE

SPOILERS FOR K201 Rebel Spirits

-It seems as if the air scooter race we saw in animatic form last year is part of episode 1. Bumi is said to be retired from the United Forces now.
-Korra seems to have mastered Airbending
-Roadtrips to the Air Temples are mentioned, I believe Katara sends her kids to the Air Temples.
-Festival is named the Glacial Spirits Festival
-Bolin initially thinks Desna and Eska are both girls and likes them, until Korra informs him that Desna is a boy
-Conflict betwen brothers as Unalaq wants to be Korra’s spiritual teacher while Tonraq wants it to remain Tenzin
-Varrick wants to invent the moving picture, movies I guess
-Bolin and Asami goe to visit Varrick, after a reasonably successful meeting, Asami hugs Bolin and calls him a natural assistant, is his future in business
-Bolin tries to chat up Eska and she says “You amuse me. I will make you mine”
-Korra, Tonraq, Mako and Bolin all fight the first Spirit and fail, even Korra in the Avatar State is knocked back until Unalaq appears and uses some technique to make the spirit turn to gold and fades away.
-This makes Korra’s mind up and she decides to learn from Unalaq
-Episode ends with Unalaq saying he has plans for Korra as Korra mulls over if she did the right thing leaving Tenzin

    Can someone post a link to a site that will stream the panel?

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    Nowhere will be live streaming the panel. Hence why I am relying on live tweets and blogs to compile this post. We are all at the mercy of those at the panel right now 🙂

    I was going crazy when I got on line and i went to youtube and looked up the trailer and since my internet is slow it took about 20 minutes to load, craziest 20 minutes of my life lol and suddenly when it loaded completley and i pressed play, i became very calm and level headed its like a switch was flipped, my mind was at ease finally after waiting so long the trailer is here and book 2 will follow shortly 🙂

    CALLED IT! I commented on the Korra print that the spirit images reminded me of Spirited Away (and Paprika). Geek point for me! (although now knowing that I want to be at SDCC even more than I though humanly possible now…..)
