The first official footage from The Legend of Korra Book 2: Spirits has finally been released, giving fans a glimpse of Korra engaged in a serious battle with some mysterious spirits.
The clip via IGN, is part of a behind-the-scenes feature at Nickelodeon’s animation studios, begins with the show’s creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko discussing Book 2.
“Korra has a whole new realm of things that she has to battle and master,” Konietzko said, confirming that Korra “ventures into the Spirit World” in Book 2. DiMartino chimed in with new information about the strange spiritual forces. “The spirits can take different forms,” he said. “There’s like creature spirits, then there’s also these light and dark spirits.” The co-creator’s words were interspersed with quick scenes of Korra doing battle with various spirits – in one, a large spiny creature with glowing eyes pins her in its grasp; in another, Korra gasps as other characters flee from a massive four-legged beast with a mouth from a neon nightmare.
The official clip reveals Korra attempting to bend, with barely any effect, at a menacing spirit with eyes of fire and a vicious mouth with rows of teeth. The spirit appears to get the best of Korra at least for now.
The Legend of Korra Book 2 release date is still unknown, but if this brief footage is any indication it will be worth the wait.
