Avatar The Legend Of Korra possible name confirmation + new clips


Hello Avatar fans, we finally have some new Korra news and it is pretty big. Thanks to community member GenderBender (@genderbender) for finding this.

So with this Nick commercial for their upcoming 2012 shows, we have effectively a confirmation that the name of the show is

Avatar The Legend Of Korra

Avatar Legend Of Korra

Now with added THE!

In the actual Korra part of the clip, we get to see some cool new shots including Equalists, Republic City and some shots that are in fact animatics (Animated storyboards). Last but not least what we assume may be the voice of the series villain Amon, the Equalist leader.

Probably the most important thing from this video is that Nick have finally shown of the show on their channel, meaning that Korra is ever closer to it’s release. No longer does just the online fandom know about it, but anyone who watches Nick.
So what are your thoughts on the Korra clips and the Name ?



It appears that this “commercial” is not actually a commercial at all. No one has actually seen it on TV, also from the leaker that leaked the Korra clips it appears that this is actually a brand advertising video never meant to be seen on tv or online.
So basically it means that this video was also leaked, that said it is still nearly confirmation that the shows name is Avatar The Legend Of Korra. We had it confirmed from other sources that Korra is going to definitely air in 2012.

It once again puts us in a situation again where we are completely reliant on leaks with Nick seemingly unwilling to talk about the show. Hopefully we will have more official news soon.

    YES! Its so cool that this is the 1st Korra commercial on television!

    I Like it, but i am a bit confused why they use concept art for half of it. Even though it still looks cool you can tell thats not final art. I am so happy that it is Avatar instead of The last airbender it makes it easier for people to say and recognize.

    Admin / Jordash Reply:

    Yeah I wondered why they used concept art as well, especially since it seems they have a whole lot done already.

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    That is the big question, perhaps they are doing something similar to The Great Divide, where they used different art styles when someone was telling a story. Or In The Cave Of Two Lovers with the story of Oma and Shu.

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    I will get my coat πŸ™ ,lol

    Johane Matte on her tumblr page just said that those are animatics

    Kelly Reply:

    what are animatics, and what do you mean by youll get ur coat

    Admin / Jordash Reply:

    Yeah I was wondering what Animatics are as well. Maybe it’s a storyboard term.

    Kelly Reply:

    there we go

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    Animatics are basically animated storyboards that they use to further assist the animators.
    What I meant by I will get my coat is that My first reply to this comment thread here was about it possibly being a different art style they may use in the show, then almost immediately after that I found the Johane matte post which made my first post completely wrong.
    So “I will get my coat” was me basically saying I will leave now to prevent further mistakes, lol

    Kelly Reply:

    oh ok that makes sense. I dont think anyone really noticed your mistake though dont be hard on urself lol.

    Sweet to see an official commercial, and glad Avatar: The Legend of Korra is the name, looking pretty sweet.

    Airspeed, you’ve said this previously:

    “So basically if I have my facts correct, Nick cannot legally talk about the show as they technically do not have the copyright/trademark right now for either Avatar: Legend Of Korra or The Last Airbender Legend Of Korra.
    ALOK got a renewal for consideration recently and TLALOK has nearly ran out of time to renew it for consideration. So as of now, we sort of know that the show is Avatar: Legend Of Korra”

    Now that we have a commercial that names the show as “Avatar”, does that mean the consideration was approved and Nick now has the legal rights?

    Or is this commercial just using old material that they had the rights to during the time it was called “Avatar”, just to promote it in a way so people can see the connection?

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    I am assuming that they have the trademark for Avatar The Legend Of Korra now. I really don’t know that much about trademarks, but I would assume if it is in a commercial that they can legally use that name. Who knows though, since they did not use the title logo that we have seen.

    Or maybe they got the trademark for “Nickelodeon’s Avatar The Legend Of Korra” and since it is a nick advert they can just drop the nick part.

    I guess we will know tomorrow whether or not Nick has been sued, lol

    Admin / Jordash Reply:

    I think this commercial is recent, like yesterday or today recent.

    Hey just noticed the cool amon pose at 1:00
    What does the symbol on his shirt in the poster mean?

    Atry Reply:

    I don’t know what the symbol means, but I think it’s interesting that the Equalist cause is using propaganda with that poster.

    Does this mean they’re not an underground criminal organization, but more like a radical political movement?

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    I get the feeling that they are just rising from being an underground movement to being more of a big opposing power in the city.

    E Reply:

    it’s a chinese character for “same level” or “equality”

    makes sense, seeing as they’re “equalists”

    Atry Reply:

    Yeah that totally makes sense.

    Thanks for clearing it out for us πŸ™‚

    Kelly Reply:

    thanks for the answer it makes total sense!

    Can’t wait for the show! Even if it’s the concept art, the show looks great.

    The confirmation of the name is something that, despite not being effective on the eventual quality of the show, does make me happy. And yes, why not use finished animation, even if it’s all recycled from what we saw in the Comic-Con trailer? Strange choice.

    Kelly Reply:

    agreed, but in the end i think were all just happy its finally on tv πŸ™‚
    I still wonder why use concept art though now im too curious…

    It’s about time that we have a name. πŸ™‚ Now, I hope we’ll get some more information!!!

    Someone on You Tube posted this:

    “Somewhere online there’s a copy of the legal documents that Viacom (Nick) pulled to get the name, as in, they had several petitions and bureaucratic shit going on just so theο»Ώ show would be called Avatar: The Legend of Korra, but they had to wait until these days before being legally allowed to use that name. They care for us!”

    I’ve asked him/her where you can find this copy, still waiting for a reply.

    Kelly Reply:

    thats so cool, its a good thing theycare for us! (lets just hope this isnt keeping the show from coming uot earlier)

    I am so satisfied about the name change. I understood the confusion with James Cameron’s Avatar and all that nonsense, but considering she’s not the last Airbender, it made absolutely no sense to call the show The Last Airbender: the Legend of Korra. It has much better continuity, and let’s face it, class with this title. Looks awesome, the Chi Blockers look BA, and I’m psyched to see another Avatar ending up on the wrong side of the law. Makes it so much more fun that way.

    YEAH!!! AVATAR:THE LEGEND OF KORRA is far more fitting than THE LAST AIRBENDER: THE LEGEND O KORRA… I mean it is notas if korra is the last airbender right…

    I’m so happy, I can’t put it into words.

  20. Tera253 Said: Comment by Tera253 on January 15, 2012 at 2:40 am | Permalink

    to have it be “The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra” was stupid because (A) there was no longer a “Last Airbender” [given that there are at least 4 living airbenders known to the fandom], and (B), because any association with the abomination that is M’ Night Shamalamadingdong’s “The Last Airbender” needs to be destroyed. it never happened. Let us move on and act as if it never existed. *moment of silence*

    Also, Eff Yoo, James Cameron.

    Also. Not impressed with the blurriness of MY avatar right now.. Why is this happening..

    Admin / Jordash Reply:

    When I updated the site I made the profile images larger, so old profile images will be blurry, if you reupload your avatar with a profile image larger than 150×150 pixels it should look great.

    Hugh Reply:

    where are the leaked images?

    GenderBender Reply:

    I’m not sure if i am allowed to say

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    No links to the leaks, Hugh, just look around teh internet, they are all over places like Tumblr, we would post them here but I assume Viacom is looking at the fansites first to take down links and stuff. We don’t want any trouble from Viacom.

    But feel free to discuss them on the forums πŸ™‚

    Korra is so close, yet so far! Patients is really hard to keep when something so anticipated won’t air for another few months or so.

  24. Hugh Said: Comment by Hugh on January 15, 2012 at 11:19 am | Permalink

    where are there leaked images?

    Hugh Reply:

    Oops, I’ve already said that!
