You know what the LoK fandom needs
More “Agni Kai" jokes
- Bryan jumped into an explanation of the switching to digital thing right away. Apparently, Nick sees shows like Korra as part of a new model for distribution. It’s done phenomenally online, as evidenced by the enormous success of the Book Two finale when it premiered on Nick’s site, and since LoK doesn’t really fit well with the rest of Nick’s lineup, they decided to put it where it would have the most success.
- It does sound like the rug was kind of pulled out from under the creative team, though. Bryan mentioned he and Mike were upset about how the news and the rollout were handled.
- Then we went straight to the ep, which was fantastic, but I’ll keep this post spoiler free.
- Bryan mentioned how much he always enjoys watching episodes with the fans. Mindy Sterling and John Michael Higgins had never been to a panel before, and they both seemed pleased and maybe a tad bit surprised at their reception.
- VA Q&A: Janet loves Korra despite her hard-headedness, David says the get the scripts the night before they record and since he’s become a fan, he reads them with more attention to parts other than his, Seychelle’s parents loved the scene in the car between Korra and Asami, John Michael Higgins finds Varrick really odd but fun, and Mindy Sterling relates to Lin’s baggage.
- Mike asked John and Mindy a fan-submitted question about a Varrick/Lin blind date, and it got kind of inappropriate really fast - John asked who would be on top, Mindy asked if they’d go all night. I was covering my face in the audience. (Bryan, paraphrased: “Thanks for coming, kids!”)
- They then had Dee Bradley Baker lead the cast (and the audience) in a sing-along of “Secret Tunnel.” Dee loves Chong, incidentally.
- Bryan showed us some art - BumJu in the sweater, concept art for the Red Lotus (including Zaheer in a reindeer sweater, lmao), designs for Suyin and her family, and some line tests combined with final animation.
- Bryan mentioned that he thought Tarrlok and Unalaq looked too much alike, so he wanted to go in a completely different direction with Zaheer.
- Ming Hua’s design is heavily inspired by a friend of Bryan’s (Mishi?)
- Angela Song Mueller did the original concept for P’li, which Bryan described as looking like Lisbeth Salander.
- Suyin’s eldest son is named Baatar Jr. after his father.
- Opal was designed with the flappers of the ’20s in mind.
- Zaofu is very Art Deco, which Bryan enjoyed.
- They ended the panel with a Shiro Shinobi-narrated sneak peek of the rest of the season.
- Bryan mentioned this will probably be the last big SDCC panel, though they do plan on coming to NYCC.
