Phineas and Ferb teaser clip feat. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Korra’s creators guest to talk Book Four and the past and future of the franchise. Plus new on Agent Carter, a Big TV show and more.

Mike and I sat down with some nice folks over at IGN this week to discuss Book 4––which premieres online tomorrow, Friday Oct 3. Or possibly tonight at midnight, as it seems some of the streaming outlets tend to release it on the early side. Check out the video podcast in the link above. Hope you enjoy the premiere!

I don’t want to spill beans on when that happens and how, but what you pointed out, we definitely deal with. Again, we didn’t want to just be like nothing happened just because it’s an animated world. Like oh, now we’re all back together and everything’s the same as it was. We try to treat these characters like they’re real people, even if it’s a fantastical world. We definitely deal with the years apart.

I don’t think I’ve been shy about saying that Korra may have started out feeling like she was the one, and that she had the entire responsibility on her shoulders, and I think there’s something bittersweet about discovering that not only can you maybe not handle that completely on your own, but also maybe it’s okay to not be able to handle it own your own. Do we need to want that? Do we want to be the only one who can do something or does it feel better to be in a community of people who support each other?

You said for the entire run of season two, [Luke] was like the alpha male. He was the guy who could get it done. No matter what you needed, he was gonna be your man. He was like the glue that kept his family together, and with them kind of scattered to the wind […] You have the strong leader type who is crippled. And he can’t do anything. He’s just…helpless in the middle of the river, just waiting to die
