KORRA BOOK 4: EPISODE 8 DISCUSSION THREAD - REMEBERANCES Anonymous
AKA Nickelodeon cutting Avatar off at the knees part 28 From Bryan's Tumblr: >A few preemptive words about Episode 408, “Remembrances”… >In a couple hours the eighth chapter of Korra Book 4 will be released online, and I suppose, if you are none the wiser, a few minutes into it you will feel duped and yell at your screen, “Hey! This is a crummy clips episode!” And that is (almost) exactly what it is––except we all worked really hard to make sure at the very least it isn’t crummy. I’m here to explain why we ended up having to do one. Sometime around a year and a half ago we were similarly duped on a large scale. We got the news from the higher-ups that our Book 4 budget was getting slashed, almost to the tune of an entire episode’s budget. We had two options: 1) let go a significant number of crew members several weeks early, or 2) make a clips episode. We never considered the first option. We weren’t going to do that to our crew, and even if we were callous enough to do so, we never would have been able to finish the season without them. But having grown up on TV in the ’80s and ’90s, we all dread clips episodes, where characters sit around saying, “Remember that time when…” and leftover footage is reheated for no one’s enjoyment. Anyone who suffered through TNG’s “Shades of Gray” knows what I’m talking about. >Anime fans know this is a common occurrence in Japanese series as well. In fact, as Mike hung his head in disappointment at our fate, I remembered how one of my favorite anime series, Samurai Champloo, made what I thought was a really awesome and clever clips episode. They mixed about 5 minutes of new footage in with the old, and set up a context where the characters would be reflecting on past events while narrating over them, offering new insights or at least providing some humor. I pitched this angle to Mike and he agreed this was the best way to turn this big old lemon into some lemonade. >Back on Avatar, we had something that functioned as a sort of clips episode, though it was all new animation and really hard to make, Episode 317, “The Ember Island Players.” Our heroes went to a play where they saw themselves and their tales performed by actors on stage. It was simultaneously a reckoning for the characters before they headed into the denouement, and a lighthearted romp where we got to poke fun at our own show before things got really serious in the remaining episodes. Korra’s “Remembrances” ended up serving the same function, albeit with old footage instead of a newly animated play. There is about 5 minutes of new footage, wonderfully animated by Studio Mir, and a bunch of funny and touching narration from the characters. There are also some fun chibi heads and other treats in there to spice up the old footage. >What started out as a reluctant chore ended up being a really fun episode to make, and in the end I truly love it. Mike did an awesome job directing it and storyboarding all the chibi hilarity, as well as overseeing the wonderful script by Josh Hamilton, Katie Mattila, and Tim Hedrick. Joaquim Dos Santos, Ryu Ki Hyun, and Lauren Montgomery drew fantastic storyboards for the new footage (particularly Lauren’s insane Varrick posing). Lots of other folks worked their tails off on this one, namely Amaris Calvin, our animatics editor; Christie Tseng, our character designer who drew and colored all of the final chibi art; Matt Gadbois, our After Effects editor; and Chris Hink, our final picture editor. Last but not least, Aran Tanchum and Vinny Guisetti on foley, Benjamin Wynn on sound design, and a stellar new score with all your favorite hits by Jeremy Zuckerman. And plenty of other fine folks I’m forgetting! >So now you know what it is and why it happened. I hope you do end up enjoying it after all, especially as a last lighthearted, nostalgic romp before POOP. GETS. REAL. And then the series is done. >Love, Bryan Get fucked Appa's gigantic cock, Nick. Anyways, Check it out at 12 Noon EST Friday 11/21 on Nick.com (free with ads), the Nick mobile App (free with ads). Amazon Video around 3AM EST. Also Available on Google Play, Xbox Video, and iTunes! $1.99 per episode, $2.99 for HD, Season passes go for $21.99 SD and $29.99 HD. We've made it through worse shit fellow Avatar fans, this will be the last fuck you from Nick before we can enjoy the conclusion of Korra's story. Let's take a bite of the Silver Sandwich, shall we?

I just had a dream where I was watching Book 4 of the series and out of nowhere it ended up with Korra being poisoned to death which shocked everyone besides the other characters. This also wasn't the final season as there was a Book 5 which showed a baby being born thus implying the new Avatar and confirming the previous one's death. While most of the book focused on the characters cooping without their friend, the new Avatar was put through the items test by the White Lotus Society and soon training with his earthbending. This new Avatar is just as headstrong as Korra was leading to some interesting confrontations with the other characters, especially Tenzin who was probably devastated the most by the news of Korra's passing. Jinora doesn't believe the news so she does her spirit body trick to go see for herself. Suyin who was present with the other characters for whatever reason said she was currently in the infirmary of Zaofu. Then something weird happened, Jinora's spirit body was unable to pass through the walls of the building which lead her to come back only to hear Suyin say something about how the type of metal used for the walls of the city buildings were so strong that it can keep out spiritual energy. I think they even said it was a layer of platinum, lead, and silver for whatever reason leading to me questioning why the hell silver is always used for supernatural elements. Suyin tells Jinora to go through the flooring as it was constructed using very basic metal. Next we see Jinora trying to get through to the infirmary by sinking into the ground trying to get passed the thick walls buried beneath until finally she was able to make it through only to see Avatar Korra laying their in bed motionless without her stomach expanding and disbanding. It was then Jinora knew the news were true. She took a moment to kneel beside her friend as she started to cry as she reached her hands out to Korra's before she returned to her body. I presumed this was the work of Zaheer and his cronies. Upon hearing the news of Korra's death, Bolin was heard celebrating from the other room as if he was glad that she died and he was just letting off frustrations. It was very weird yet he later become more sadden by her untimely death. Since this was a new season, all of this happened in Book 5 and the dream even extended into a Book 6 (the latter half of season three). Book 6 was merely nothing but the characters trying to get used to the fact that there was a new Avatar and the new Avatar getting frustrated that everyone compared him to Korra when he was his own person. Bolin offered to be his new earthbending bro. Tenzin offered his support and promised to be the new Avatar's airbending instructor. Jinora agreed to help him get in touch with the spiritual aspect of being the Avatar. And only a glimpse of what appeared to be a ghost Korra much in the similar fashion of Avatar Roku communicating with Aang. The dream and season ended before I saw the new Avatar become a fully realized one.
