Possibilities rise for a Legend of Korra Movie (Animated)

The Legend of Korra The Movie
119 Comments

IGN has recently released a report detailing increased activity in Paramounts “Animation Plans” saying:

Paramount has recently ramped up its animation plans by hiring seven writers to tackle projects, some of which Mary Parent and J.J. Abrams will oversee. What’s more, Paramount chief Brad Grey has been tasked with hitting up its sister division Nickelodeon for animated properties including The Legend of Korra. – IGN

Doesn’t seem like anything’s even close to confirmed at this point, though IGN said this:

Big news, Avatar fans! Thanks to Paramount Animation, we may soon be getting a Legend of Korra movie. – IGN

We know Mike and Bryan have expressed interest in doing a full length movie based in the Avatar universe in the past, so it definitely would seem like a possibility, especially with Paramount seemingly taking a more active interest in the animation department.

As long as it doesn’t interfere with the still to come 3 seasons of Korra, i’m all for it.  Seems like it would be awesome way to explore the Avatar universe.

What do you think about a full length animated movie (obviously M. Night would not be involved in this one)?  It could really boost interest in Korra and ATLA, and so long as most of the team that worked on ATLA and Korra were involved it has a major chance of being epic.

    I think it’s definitely a move in the right direction.

    Being produced along side the LOK series would be amazing, but even if it wasn’t, it’d still be something to look forward to and be able to capture a new audience. Movies also generally get more advertising than TV series too.

    This might also give the green light to M. Night Shyamalan for him to continue the live action series, and start on the sequel.
    Though for his involvement with the animation, I’d say it’s very near to zilch.

    So what you’re saying is this is a stand alone movie that doesn’t have anything to do with the regular series. Its okay, most anime movies in Japan based on TV series are also like that. For me, I like it hopefully they’ll be showing at least a teaser trailer about it and when they’ll release that.

    But the thing is what will it be? Will it be 2D or 3D since almost all of the animation movies are now in 3D. If you look at the Pokemon movies, 95% of the movie is 2D and the rest is 3D and they release them not on cinemas but on direct-to-video DVD and Blu-Ray or in a cable channel like Cartoon Network.

    Anyway I’ll be looking forward to that.

    A stand-alone movie would certainly work, as it’ll be roughly around half of Book 1 of LOK. In the first half, the Pro-bending situation was nicely settled, so an Avatar movie would definitely have enough time to introduce characters, and have a good plot.

    It’ll most likely be 2D. At least to start with, I reckon.

    I hope they don’t even consider 3D honestly. It would distract viewers from the richness of the classic 2D animation IMHO.

    The bottom line is: if Bryke is heavily involved, it’s bound to be excellent 🙂

    Ricardo Reply:

    Personally, I think that it being in 3D and 2D would be excellent, but obviously would be a lot more work.
    However, it could easily pay off, especially if the bending are brilliant.

    Imagine the LOK Book 1 finale in 3D: thrilling. 😎

    FireSageGuntur Reply:

    I guess I’m just imagining it poorly. I’ve always thought 3D was better in live-action movies and not animation, especially anime-type animation. I’ll keep an open mind 🙂

    Rabadoo Reply:

    Meh, I think 3D is overrated. I’ve watched quite a few movies in 3D and while it is kind of fun for the first half-hour or so, I don’t feel like it contributed to my enjoyment of the movies in any way.

    Droc Plug Reply:

    Whoa, 3D bending!!!!!!!! That would look amazing. Like a fireblast to the crowd.

    Its great to spread the word about Avatar. Has long as it spreeds the right message. The story of the two NWT brothers was sad but in a beutyfull Ethan Frome sort of way with grandness and smallness. I just say to the creatures respect the show.

    I am glad the movies creatures have respected the show enough to make this one animated with all the people against the ATLA Movie for resons that is was live action. I don’t think I’ll like it JUST because it is animated other things like what I said earlyier about the feel of it.

    Ricardo Reply:

    No need to be condescending an call Paramount “movie creatures”. At least, it seems to be very patronising.

    I think another reason that it’s going to be animated (apart from the obvious one) is that it generally costs less. This is essentially a trial movie, and I think if it becomes a success, we can expect more to come. 🙂

    It’s good to be open-minded. People accept things better that way. 😉

    I didn’t do a good job of explaining my thoughts earlier here I go:
    I will start by explaining that LOK bk 1 was the best LOK bk 1 can get. Because: The story of the two NWT brothers was sad but in a beautiful Ethan Frome sort of way with grandness. The animation was great quality, most of the background paintings are good enough to be sold as wall paintings alone and the characters and action doesn’t look sketchy or incomplete. Being twelve episodes long that alot of things happened in that were only explained enough, but not explained as much as we would like latter on, Bolin and Mako staying at Asamis mansion could have had two episodes and the interest would still be alive and most non-fan site viewers would still come back every week.
    Secondly I will talk about movie length of ATLA live action: Though M. Night and Paramount are different some lessons are transferable. M Night made 20 episodes happen in under two hours. Fair number of ATLA bk 1 episodes were non-facing Firelord plot themed LOK bk 1 didn’t have fillers and was only 8 episodes shorter than ATLA bk1. This shows that unless I hear otherwise I believe the movie will be two hours-ish and because LOK bk1 shipping seemed rushed the movie will be more rushed.
    Thirdly I will talk about the Stay or Go side of this:
    I am not a G1er (those who believe ATLA cannot be beat and talk LOK down before they think) I preach to G1ers about having an open mind so I will do the same; if I enjoy the movie and I will force myself to try by posting positive things about it on Facebook I owe Paramount an apology and will buy it on DVD. But I offer this wisdom LOK bk1 will be hard to beat in two hours, trying a different plot we don’t know about will make us on the edge of our seat due to interest.
    Lastly my closing thoughts:
    -Longer (but not to slow) is better. Two hour-ish middle ground did not work in history.
    -And different plot can make this feasible.
    -If it goes well I am a new Paramount fan.

    I actually think that LOK Book 1 had room for much improvement. However, I am not saying that it was bad, because I truly enjoyed it and want more. In fact, it was very well done given the time frame, but there is certainly aspects of it that could have been a lot better, or at the very least, slightly better.

    As for the movie, it’s not confirmed at the moment so we don’t know much. Much less, the fact that it’ll be a movie on LOK Book 1. Because, seriously, what would be the point?
    One might as well watch LOK Book 1 again.
    IMHO, It’ll most likely be a separate movie, a stand-alone movie. Anyone that has watched anime and seen their movies would know what I’m talking about here.
    2 hours is plenty of time to introduce characters and plot development. 😀

    This is wonderful news! I don’t think M Night is going to do another movie due to negative fan response. Sure, a lot of people liked it, but the feedback was overwhelmingly negative. I’m not sure a sequel will ever come 🙁

    and you all are absolutley right! movies seem to have a bigger way of making movies known to the public. with TV, korra is on nick, a childrens network. so many many people wont want to watch or have never seen it for that simple fact. i think that A:TLA and Korra have a much more meaningful message and story that “just a kids show” or “a cartoon”

    I would realllllllly enjoy that, hopefully it’s is a lot better then the ATLA movie. I think it would be better animated (that’s just my opinion). Over all it would be great if they made LOK into a movie ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    If they do do a Movie, I would assume it’s something almost like a series in between Korra Seasons, or possibly a finale Movie for the 4 seasons of Korra.

    Another cool thing would be an ATLA animated movie.

    Others have thrown around the idea of an Avatar origins movie too.

    All of this is speculation at this point though.

    I would love a movie but I swear to god if it is anything like M Nights movie of ATLA I will poke out my eyes and rip off my ears. On a side note I guess that since it is going to be an animated movie that could be different and cool…..even cooler would be a STOP MOTION animation movie!!!!

    This sounds awesome I only hope they market it well. Otherwise it could go unnoticed by non avatar fans. I hope the movie’s goal is to not only please current fans, but make more people into fans. That way Avatar has a larger following and airgo more Avatar like things(ie movies, series, comics, etc.) would be released.

    This would be amazing! There’s so much potential for the Korra storyline to really open up and expand.

    But please, PLEASE, for the love of the Avatar, don’t let Shyamalan ANYWHERE near it!!

    I can see it now we’ll be getting avatar video games, posters, toys, clothes, soundtracks, movies, and of course dvds and blu rays.
    Maybe to far fetched, but the way things are going, maybe not.
