"(A) we didn’t want [a movie] to be done at all before anyone was attached, and then (B) if it was going to be done, we wanted to do it, but they weren’t going to let us. (C) When they attached Night, we just thought – well this is what we’ve been dealt, we’ll offer help when it’s asked of us and if it’s not we’ll just stay out of the way. And in the beginning it was more positive and we offered help, but then we had a big falling out… It’s a long story. I would need two weeks to tell you this story and in the end what do you get? The only thing that could be said is that it was a wasted opportunity, and I mean wasted: money wasted, time wasted, [potential wasted]… On one level… I’m proud of the [show] we made, but it doesn’t encompass my entire life and my being. On the other hand, [these characters] are our children, these characters are real to us, and to watch [them] be dragged through the mud… was just so disheartening…” It’s heartbreaking, but at the end of the day it’s not the first time… a project was horribly adapted in Hollywood, it’s not the last time it’s going to happen, it might even happen to us again, we never know… So when you say, ‘Did we have any involvement?’ We gave input that went no where. So we were involved, but our involvement had no effect."

"That experience gave us a little extra motivation to write Korra ourselves, and to say ‘We’re going to do this right this time.’” – Mike DiMartino
"Much like every season of Korra, we have a new villain… [Zaheer’s] not dead, but we do have a new threat and a new enemy for Korra to face."
"But, it all ties in very closely to Book 3." – Bryan Konietzko
Nickelodeon really needs to start hiring better directors.
"As far as a date night between Katara and Zuko, I think you are going to have to stick to the fan art for that."
on revisiting old characters in LoK
"When we first started Avatar… the network was really excited, and then they came back and said, ‘We don’t know about fire.’ [So] Mike’s like, ‘We’ll just bend tar, just shoot tar out of their hands.’ And it’s always cracked me up!"
