Book 2 coming Mid April according to Janet Varney (Now confirmed to be false)

Book 2 news
36 Comments

Update 2/ Janet has since posted on twitter to confirm that the April posts were wrong and that we should all wait for Nick to announce it. The wait continues and Katara is losing hope 🙁

Update/ The tweet has been removed from Janet’s twitter page, it still appears as a reply to the question. This suggests that she was told to remove it, because the info was wrong or revealed too soon. What exactly it means is up in the air, she must have said April for a reason though.

Yes hope at last, Katara is delighted.

Book 2 news

Since it is only from a voice actor and we know from past experiences that they have been wrong in the past don’t consider this confirmation of April. It is definitely a good sign that after so long without a mention of a date and post Nick Upfront April has been mentioned.

Janet Varney will be attending MatsuriCon 2013 tomorrow March 29th and I believe there is going to be a panel with her. So we MAY, emphasis on may get some news.

It makes sense as a date as it would be a year on from Book 2, but we have heard nothing but “It’s not done yet” which suggest it will come later. Nick need to put out a trailer or something ASAP if this is true, as this means we are just weeks away, if true. I am definitely not going to put complete faith in this news, but it definitely makes me feel better about the release date.

Thoughts on this glimmer of hope ?

    I hope she wasn’t told otherwise because she took that tweet down.

    That is just it, we don’t know it is soon, this is not confirmation especially since the tweet was taken down.
    It is a good sign, but with Nick not active as ever it is impossible to know if we should believe it or not.

    Come to think of it, didn’t Bryan post a drawing on tumblr depicting the “Korra Book 3 crew”?

    Doesn’t that mean that production on Book 2 is pretty much finished and it’s ready to air?

    If that’s the case I have a feeling Bryan is also displeased with the long wait, the longer the show is held back the more retakes he has to suffer through 😀

    That is the question, As far as we know Book 2 is pretty much done (perhaps a few weeks behind book 1 production). We are just waiting for Nick to announce the show.
    I would like for Mike and Bryan to come out and give us an update on if Book 2 is more or less done.
    Though would they be allowed to say
    “Book 2 is done, just waiting for Nick to announce it”

    damn, waiting for book 2 is like going for a roller coaster ride.
    1. you´re excited to go on the ride
    2. you have to wait way too long
    3. you loose your enthusiasm
    4. thinking about the ride gets you a bit excited again
    5. still waiting
    6. a bit of excitement again
    7. still waiting
    8. you get closer and closer to the ride and excitement rises exponentially
    9. finally it´s your turn and your heart pops from over-excitement
    that´s how it´s gonna be for me.

    She could have took it down for many reasons but don’t you think if she posted the wrong date she would have said she messed up? It would have been the right thing to do. That’s why i believe it’s a great possiblity that Book 2 will come out in april. The only thing the negates that is no preview. Still I won’t get my hopes up….yet.

    And my previous comment was right; If she put a wrong post up she would have said it was a mistake. Thanks for the info Kelly.

    I was expecting this, not surprised at all.

    Just make the wait even more frustrating, nearly every bit of information from the past few weeks has had something happen.

    Nick need to do something quickly.

    This may not be false actually. Other voice actors and janet have said April in the past. Perhaps Nick has made Janet take down that tweet because of a marketing strategy.

    do you guys think theres something wrong? maybe nick doesnt want korra to air until a specific time, or maybe financial tensions? its not like any show to come on air by surprise.

    Apparently Janet didn’t want to reveal any details about book 2 by fear of losing her job (according to her presence at matsuri con). Although it would be pretty stupid to fire the voice actress of the main character of the series…

    I’m thinking she wasn’t lying about book two’s release being in mid-april. However, she was forced to take that tweet down as her boss/bosses probably didn’t want ANY information revealed.

    So yeah, maybe Nick is planning some sort of marketing strategy.

    I am still optimistic as she said in the Tweet Kelly forwarded above to follow Nick for news plus Airspeeds e-mail from NickUK. Janet wouldn’t of told to follow Nick for a release if she wasn’t told Nick central would do the tweeting.

    A have a keen sense that Korra Book 2 won’t come out until May or June. Hopefully I’m wrong and it will truly come out in April.

    Actually, I was thinking…

    Since Book 2 is coming out in May in the UK, this means that there is a probability that it’s coming out earlier in the US! Meaning that Janet wasn’t lying but was forced to say there was a “misunderstanding” since her bosses didn’t want any details revealed. 🙂

    Then again, I might be wrong. But this is my theory for now :3

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    Woah, Book 2 is not coming to the UK in May, Book 1 is and they hope to air Book 2 not too soon after Book 1 ends.
    But we will almost certainly know the USA date for Book 2 before UK.
