The season finale of a TV show like the animated fantasy "The Legend of Korra" can be bittersweet for fans. It's great to see burning questions answered, but it's a bummer to have to suffer the long wait for the next season. Followers of more adult-oriented fare like "Girls," "Game of Thrones," and "Mad Men" know this feeling all too well.
Legend of Korra Episode 12 To preview the season finale of "The Legend of Korra," and provide some solace to fans by giving them a peek at the future of the show, the Journal spoke to "Korra" creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Here's what they had to say. ‘The Legend of Korra" season finale airs on June 23 on Nickelodeon.
The Legend of Korra Episode 12
What should fans expect from the Legend of Korra Finale?
DiMartino: They can definitely expect more awesome stories, and a few more surprises for sure.
Konietzko: We're really proud of the way the last two episodes came together-especially how the music came together. It's some of the best music that the composer, Jeremy Zuckerman, has ever done. Really emotional, and we're really excited to see how people respond to the end of this little story.
Will the music from the show ever be released?
Legend of Korra Episode 12 Konietzko: We would love to. It's something we've been pushing for for years, even back on "Avatar." Especially now with the music on "Korra" where Jeremy has been incorporating a lot more live instrumentation, string performers, Chinese instrumental specialists and stuff like that. We would love to. It's a big goal of ours for sure.
The penultimate episode had the surprise appearance of General Iroh. What can you tell us about him? Are we going to see more of him in the future?
The Legend of Korra Episode 12 DiMartino: Yeah, he's in the Legend of Korra Finale. Just so we're clear-he's Zuko's grandson, not his son. I think there was some speculation about whether he was his son or grandson. It is his grandson. He's voiced by Dante Basco. The idea behind him was to have a swashbuckling hero-type guy. He's the youngest general in the United Forces which is kind of the U.N. of the "Avatar" world now. We just thought it would be a fun way to tie in the legacy of Zuko without having Zuko be present there.
Konietzko: It would be hard for Zuko to swashbuckle at his current age.
What made you decide to bring Dante Basco back into the cast?
Legend of Korra Episode 12 Konietzko: Like Mike said, the whole book one of "Korra" even though we're striking new ground, it was all built on the foundation of the original series. In the episode "Out of the Past" you see how the events involving Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph, have set the stage for the current story. For us it was a way to incorporate Zuko's legacy with a new fresh face.
DiMartino: We loved Dante's work on the old show and we were looking for a way to organically weave him into this one.
A lot of fans were struck by the scene in which Lin Beifong sacrifices herself and then has her bending taken away. What was it like creating that sequence?
Konietzko: I like nothing more than a character sacrificing himself or herself for the sake of others. That's drama at its finest for me.
DiMartino: That scene is definitely one of my favorites from the whole first season. It's got so much emotion wrapped up in it. In terms of her past relationship with Tenzin, and the fact that his family are the last airbenders and she's willing to make this sacrifice to save them. And Jeremy's music in that section just brought home the whole tragic feeling. Legend of Korra Episode 12
Is it tough for someone who has created a character people really like to hurt or kill that character? I'm reminded of Boromir dying at beginning of the book "The Two Towers."
Konietzko: That was my favorite scene in "The Lord of the Rings," so I guess I just gravitate towards that sort of stuff. I've been interacting with the fans a bit online, and I try to imagine a show they would find entertaining in which nothing ever happened to the characters. I don't think it would be an engaging show, I don't think it would be a fun show to make. For this kind of series, you have to have high stakes, and you have to have consequences, or else it's like a sitcom show that just resets every week, and they live in a bubble. I think it's touching that the fans feel so close to the characters that they feel personally hurt. I've felt that way in plenty of TV shows-"Game of Thrones," "Mad Men." How could they do that to that character? That's drama.
