‘The Legend of Korra’ Spin-Off Movie Rumored Released in 2016 May No Longer Happen Following Break Up of Series Creators
“The Legend of Korra” left many fans heartbroken following its end in 2014. Despite many fans hoping that a spin-off movie will take place on Netflix, it looks like their hopes came crashing down following news that the series’ co-creators have broken up. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“The Legend of Korra” may have ended in 2014, but it has left so many fans still hoping for the series to come back on TV or on the big screen in the form of a spin-off movie or a completely new plot. Earlier reports from IGN claimed that Paramount has already hired seven writers to begin working on some of their animated movies, including “The Legend of Korra,” “Monkey Quest” and “Dora the Explorer.” According to the outlet, the network planned to create on the film while working on a $100 million budget, similar to the “Ice Age” and “Despicable Me” films.
While this may have seemed like a huge development for “The Legend of Korra” spin-off movie, recent reports from Hypable claim that the spin-off movie may not happen, after the show’s creators, Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino have broken up and begun working on separate projects. The outlet, however, noted that Konietzko and DiMartino are still open to working together in the future, but they will no longer be working in the ‘Avatar’ universe.
“We’re all tired and burnt out. We need to move on and take that next step,” the co-creators explained to the outlet.
This may come as bad news for most fans who have been waiting for a “Legend of Korra” spin-off movie to take place in the years to come. There have been rumors that the spin-off movie will be released in 2016 via Netflix. According to Venture Capital Post, fans previously explored on the possibility of working on the controversial finale of the Nickelodeon series, which seemingly implied that Korra and Asami had a special relationship with each other.
Janet Varney, who is the voice behind Korra on the series, expressed her thoughts on working for the series once again.
“I would love to see the very first Avatar. But really, anything that Mike and Bryan ask us to do, we just say, ‘Absolutely,’” she told Comic Book Resources.
