Nick Confirms Korra for “Later this Year” and Shows Scene

From IGN:

The wait for new episodes of The Legend of Korra has been more difficult for fans, since that show aired its 12 episodes with nearly no breaks last year, but has been gone for quite some time. Fans have the comfort of knowing there are still three more “Books” to go in the series, but so far, we haven’t been given a debut date for Book 2. That didn’t change today, as Nick could only say Korra would be back “later this year.” However, we were shown a cool new scene from the upcoming episodes.

We’ve known since last summer that Book 2 is subtitled “Spirits,” and Nickelodeon’s Rich Magallanes noted that in Book 2, the divide between the human world and the spirit world was collapsing and Korra finds, “the dark spirits are seeping into her world.”

The sequence we saw found Korra battling one of these spirits, initially just seen as dark tentacles, surrounded by a purple energy, coming out of the ground on a hillside. Korra asks, “Spirit, why are you so angry? What have we done to offend you?” only for the tentacles to violently knock her aside, as they do to anyone else who attempts to help her, including Tenzin and an adult, male Water Tribe member I didn’t recognize at a glance.

Then, the full octopus-like creature rises out of the ground, and begins moving down the hill, utlimately crashing through a fence into a carnival being held, as Korra pursues it. On the offense, Korra shoots the creature with fireballs and begins to get the upper hand, but she is suddenly grabbed by one of its tentacles, and smashed down into the ground. And… we cut to black, for now.

And sorry, my fellow Korra fans, Nickelodeon is not releasing this scene to the public for the time being. As the scene was introduced, they noted that there is still a lot of work to be completed on the animation side for Korra: Book 2 - though the scene in question still looked terrific, even if it wasn’t in its final form. Suffice to say, it hinted at some very exciting things to come.
