Nickelodeon will be wrapping of the second season of The Legend of Korra on Friday, but since the network has released the episode online already much has been discussed about the future of the show. Series creators, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, recently discussed the ideas to be shown in Book 3, and the title of the season, which you can read after the jump. Obviously spoilers will be contained within.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows launched today on both X-Box 360 and PC. Activision has released a launch trailer celebrating that fact and it looks rather awesome.
The game follows the story form the current television series, though with a look all its own. It comes out for PS3 the 25th of September and we will be bringing you a review sometime soon.
If you heard me talk up the beauty that is the Dark Horse hardcover art book on The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book One – Air HC, you know I’m super excited about the coming second season. Today, the first teaser trailer arrived.
Michael Bay cast Megan Fox as April O’Neil in the upcoming Turtles reboot, much to the fans’ chagrin. And while we aren’t expecting much to come of this, the first set photo has been released, and honestly, she doesn’t look half bad, but you can take the jump and see for yourself.
I don’t think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have ever had a time when there wasn’t an audience for their hijinks. So it makes sense that Nickelodeon would bring the characters back for a new series.
Take the jump for a look at the footage that premiered at the San Diego Comic Con.
Following the success of the first half of season one of Legend of Korra, it makes sense that Nickelodeon would order season two of the series, but fans who attended the panel at the San Diego Comic-Con were in for a bigger surprise.
Someone took up the task of editing Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra: Making of a Legend shorts into one long behind the scenes feature that must be watched by Korra fans.
Watch it now, before it goes away!
We’ve been waiting for official word, and now Legend of Korra fans can rejoice – Nickelodeon has given a big thumbs up for a second season.
But here is the item most didn’t put together until recently – Korra is coming back next year as Season 1, Book 2, so this announcement really means there will be Season 2, Book 1.
Oh, yeah… three awesome story arcs for one of our favorite animated shows.
There’s a new fanzine coming out called Waiting for October that focuses attention on one of the great shows from the ’90s – The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Joe Quinones is doing the cover for the magazine, and it is a trip down memory lane, and is totally inspired by the movie posters of Drew Struzan.
If you were wondering what’s in store for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles television series, take the jump to hear it right from Nick’s VP of Current Animation.
More than 25 years after its first comic book, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return to their roots with IDW Publishing. Today at WonderCon in San Francisco, IDW and Nickelodeon announced a long-term agreement to offer an all-new installment of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and graphic novels. Starting this summer, IDW’s comic series will bring the “Heroes in a Half Shell” back into action. IDW’s new comics are part of a larger initiative to bring Turtles to a new generation of fans, starting with these new storylines from the original series. Additionally, in fourth quarter 2012, Nickelodeon will premiere a new CG-animated version of the wildly popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
If you are a fan of the NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures, which were modeled after the original Eastman and Laird comics, you’re probably going to be a little upset over the news that Playmates will now be the exclusive creator of TMNT toys.Â It all has to do with a new deal struck between Playmates and Nickelodeon, the new owners of the sewer dwelling ninjas.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Nickelodeon, which broadens the scope of creative inspiration for Playmates,” said Lou Novak, President, Playmates Toys. We are proud to continue our long-standing commitment of making innovative, fun toys based on the beloved Turtles that have entertained generations of kids around the world,” said Lou Novak, President, Playmates Toys.
“Our partnership with Playmates Toys adds another layer of excitement for us as we build upon the Turtles’ great, funny stories and characters which have withstood the test of time,” said Leigh Anne Brodsky, President, Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products. “The characters have resonated around the world for 25 years, and the toys based on them are part of pop culture and continue to be relevant to today’s kids.”
I’m not a huge fan of TMNT action figures, but I did really like those NECA figures, which are probably now going for thousands of dollars on eBay right now.Â What about the rest of you? Is this good news, or bad?
