IGN Interview About the Finale, the Upcoming Korra Game and Book Four
http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/08/25/the-legend-of-korra-game-release-date-and-new-mode-plus-what-to-expect-in-book-4?utm_campaign=ign+main+twitter&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

Stuff revealed thus far,

The videogame will be released on October 21st/22nd.

There will be a new villain in Book 4 and a new threat for Korra to face

Bryan about the new threat: “It all ties in. You’ll see how it all ties in to Book 3.”

The airbenders will be a jedi-like peacekeeping force in Book 4.

More info coming when it's avaliable.

What's the chance of us seeing the Fire Nation and Honora? We've seen what's happened to all the other places and the Earth Kingdom is still probably going to be important next season.

Considering they focused on Toph's family in this season, chances are we'll be seeing Zuko's next time in the show... Well, it's the last chance they'll have isn't it?

Wouldn't it be weird if it turned out the reason why Toph disappeared is that, like Iroh, she actually ascended to the Spirit World? If only because she's the last person you'd expect to manage to do such a thing.

Super Toph coming back to walk the earth. Or maybe shes Transcended Pysical Form and is now actual Living Rock. Book four ends with Toph Statue of Liberty Moment. Transcend Star Wars go straight into Ghostbusters

So in the new trailer for season three (yes, after all of this Nicktoons will be airing the rest of Book Three later this month), they accidentally included... what looks like two clips from Book Four of a character acting evilly.

http://lokfanatics.tumblr.com/post/96423329886/book-3-trailer-for-nick-toons

Apparently the Nick trailers for Korra are notorious for including spoilers for the following season, though I think that this is the first time I can remember it happening.

I am curious as to why said person might be evil, considering they've already confirmed that they'd have a seperate agenda to that of the Red Lotus, Amon etc.

I think think its going to be them battling the Red Lotus and likely having a ideology that is geared toward Total Control vs Anarchy. Remember the Pai Sho game with Bo Lin and Asami both using different play styles. (Strategy vs Chance, Order vs Chaos). I am adoring the amount if Semblance we are seeing with that game and Bo Lin asking Korra to standardize (create balance) to the game. I was wondering where the other part of that was going to come in. I hope the Airship Captain joins up with Korra leading the third faction.

Book 3 and 4 really getting deep with Metaphors and Imagery. Which is why I can't shake theire being a lot of meaning between Scenes that mirror each other from past books.

I really hope people caught onto that. Maybe Korra will play Pai Sho with Asami while she recovers. Get frustrated and then have her revelation.

still think Nick is being terribly short sighted with their handling of the show. "Good, now nobody will ask us to make more girl lead action shows."

They may not ask you to make anything else if you are going to be this shit at it you chucklefucks.

Because it's not just what you handle but how you do it. I mean Dreamworks was yanked about similarly for years with the Monsters vs Aliens, Mattel with the Dreamhouse pilot. Nick is not looking to be a good place to have anything with female leads, that aren't live action fodder.

I'd wish to have a hope that maybe they'll start expanding into digital with new stuff. But that "see it only here" nonsense before they flipped it doesn't leave me with hope.

Which would force them to draw her butt with definition like when we do get rare butt shots of her great rear. And no 'clothing' change, just a switch back to Book 2's style except for the modified belt.

I guess if they go into a volcano or something someone can comment if she's hot in that getup.

Not too keen on her hair even if it means she'll keep it loose for a while. Bob cut doesn't suit her in the concept art, and it doesn't suit her here. Though it isn't as short as it could be, I'd rather not be reminded of Jinora or Opal.

I'm more interested in the background. I know it's not guaranteed to matter, since it's basically just promotional art, but it looks like the Spirit World. I wouldn't be shocked if she had one or two episodes exploring the Spirit World and meditating/getting more comfortable with herself.

Spirit World would be interesting. Seeing Korra jump around and stuff talking with Iroh and thinking on how she can best be The Avatar. Then its back to the real world, and maybe the chair still.

Hm, anyone else think that the implied maglev train that Varrick and Suyin's huband were working on would be part of the plot in some manner? ...At least I think that they said they were working together on something that combined trains and magnets, so a maglev would make sense.

Man, wouldn't that be a kick in the teeth for Asami, right when she gets her business on track selling airships and possibly running freight, Varrick bankrupts her again with trains that can carry more people and cargo much faster than her planes and airships can.

Kind of depressing to think that in, his own way, Varrick will probably have a larger impact on the future than characters like Asami.

Like, she's smart, a good inventor, and a great business woman by all accounts, but it kind of seems that Varrick's almost constant output of ideas will build the next century, not her.

Or maybe she'll invent the computer or the television set in the near future or something, we'll see.

So it looks like Varrick is heavily involved with Kuvira's little revolution/takeover of everything metal and industrial. And judging by the shot of evil Zhu Li climbing into a mech, I'm gonna assume he's going back to being "evil." To nobody's surprise. Good job letting an escaped convict stay free, Lin.

We're apparently gonna get a lot of wandering wisdom-seeking Korra, too. Which raises the chances of running into old Toph by a lot. In my heart, anyway.

Let it rest for a while before bringing in the next series I'd say two years since part of Korra development was foot dragging. I'd love to see an Earth Avatar working along the Earth Frontier.

Maybe get a Visit from a Air Patrol that asks why they don't come to meet with them or the White Lotus.

Their answer that the people of the Frontier need them more than anywhere else. Setup this bender as their being too focused on the small things and not seeing the big picture and then the next one after being a high thinking Administrative type thinking in the Big Picture only so much that they miss the intricate nature of protecting the people.

I actually wouldn't mind if Bryke worked on something not!Avatar as their next project. They've been working in the same world for ten years and that's enough to give any creative agoraphobia. The best antidote against burn-out is to strike out and do something totally different, and I'd be very interested in what they and the rest of the team could come up with. Imagine going back in time a decade and starting from scratch knowing then what they know now, it could be pretty neat.

What network would let them play around with something new, or play around with an ensemble that fits their skills.

This. Please.
The whole Avatar franchise is done, imo. It was done a while ago. Sure, the newer Korra seasons have given up some good things, but I never felt like it worked towards an overall grand plan like the first series. And what would another Avatar series even be like? Another massive time jump into the future? Avatar using the internet to track down the bad guys? Yeah no thanks; the technology/mysticism aspects are already pushed to their limit with Korra as is. It would have to be a jump back in time to when before Aang was even born.

I say come up with something fresh and new. I have the utmost trust in them, they can do it. And hopefully they'll be able to find a more grateful home than Nickelodeon.. Though CN is just as bad.

Doesn't have to be another jump into the future the way we see it. Just have it be like This is their happy medium for technological advancement. Just have like Star Wars it be more a change of style across the centuries than actual more technology.

I'd like to see some sort of scifi fantasy series a la Xenogears and Blade (not Saga though, that setting was crap). Doesn't have to be Avatar necessarily, but most series I see trying that are too heavily biased towards one or the other rather than striking a balance.
