Nickelodeon USA Releases Sneak-Peek From Opening Of First "The Legend of Korra" Book Four Episode "After All These Years"

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere "The Legend of Korra" Book Four, the fourth and final season of Nickelodeon's hit original animated series (Nicktoon), titled "Balance", digitally from Friday 3rd October 2014, Nickelodeon has unveiled a exclusive video clip featuring the opening sequence from the first episode of "Book Four: Balance", called "After All These Years", giving fans a first-look at the beginning of the premiere episode, which you can watch in the online streaming video clip below!

The season four premiere, titled "After All These Years", which is appropriate, given in the show's timeline, as revealed in the Book Four trailer, picks up three years after the events in "Book Three". This scene provides fans with some info of the world of Korra and how it's changed between the three year time skip, and catches fans up with Asami and what she's been up to since she was last seen - though you'll also glimpse a few more familiar faces as well!



SPOILER ALERT!!



"The Legend of Korra" season 4 opens with Shiro Shinobi singing the praises of Republic City. The metropolis is now a cultural haven where humans and spirits intermingle. A statue of Korra stands in a park named after her (which is a little bit grim) and Shinobi blithely informs us that Korra has been away from Republic City for three years.

In Book Three, Avatar Korra had to save the world and endured her most intense battle yet. Now broken and bruised, she begins a journey of self-discovery and survival in a new world where the strong prey upon the weak. When an aggressive military force rises up led by the power hungry Kuvira, the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance and only the Avatar can set things right.

The passage of time has an evident impact on the the episode. Republic City's railway system has been modernized, thanks to Asami, which allows for a new political alliance between the city and the Earth Kingdom. The episode introduces a new character, Prince Wu, a kid who is apparently spoiled. He will soon take the throne of Ba Sing Se.

Other changes are subtle, but still noticeable. Air-baby Rohan is now a toddler, while Mako has new hair and a completely new costume (although Meelo is still a nose-picker).

Of course, it is the absence of Korra which poses the most questions. The first clip released from "The Legend of Korra" season 4, which took place shortly after the conclusion of Book 3, indicated that the Avatar was leaving Republic City for a short while – but it seems that her recovery from Zaheer's attack has taken considerably longer.

A brief synopsis for "Book 4: Balance" offers a hint at what Korra will be up to in the show’s final season – and suggests that all is not quite as well in the world as Shiro Shinobi’s cheerful narration suggests.

"In Book Three, Avatar Korra had to save the world and endured her most intense battle yet. Now broken and bruised, she begins a journey of self-discovery and survival in a new world where the strong prey upon the weak." That definitely doesn’t sound good – but things get grimmer as the summary continues...

"When an aggressive military force rises up led by the power hungry Kuvira, the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance and only the Avatar can set things right."

"The Legend of Korra - Book 4: Balance" premieres on Friday 3rd October 2014 on Nick.com and the networks Emmy Award-winning Nick App.

Additionally, all 39 episodes from Books One, Two and Three are currently available for fans to watch online at Nick.com, plus NickToons USA and TeenNick are currently airing repeats of "Book One: Air". Nicktoons is currently airing Book 1 weekdays at 8am and late-Sunday nights from 1-3am, and TeenNick will be showing Book 1 episodes Saturday and Sunday nights from 11pm-midnight (all times ET/PT). Episodes from "Book Three: Change" are also currently premiering on NickToons Monday-Thursday nights at 8pm (ET/PT). The final episodes from season three will air between Monday 6th to Thursday 9th October 2014 and will be their official television premieres (as they originally premiered online and on the Nick App).

Nickelodeon Portugal To Premiere "Breadwinners" In October 2014

Nickelodeon Portugal has announced in the following article from the 'Noticias'/'News' section of their official website, nickelodeon.pt, the exciting Nickelodeon Europe News that the Portuguese version of the world's number one kids' channel will start to premiere and show the first episode of Nickelodeon's brand-new bread-tastic original animated buddy comedy series (Nicktoon) "Breadwinners" on Saturday 4th October 2014 at 2:30pm, following a special "SpongeBob SquarePants" marathon starting at 12:25pm!


Following the shows debut, Nickelodeon Portugal will continue to premiere brand-new episodes of "Breadwinners" every Monday to Friday at 7:15pm from Monday 6th October 2014, and encore two new episodes every Saturday and Sunday morning from 10:00am from 11th October 2014.

To celebrate Nickelodeon Portugal debuting Nick's all new animated sitcom "Breadwinners", Nick Portugal has unveiled their official show website for the brand new show, which features show information and a 'Personagens' section featuring character bios for SwaySway and Buhdeuce, which you can visit here at nickelodeon.pt/series/breadwinners/o9yezl!:
Os Breadwinners chegam ao Nickelodeon!


Está na hora dos companheiros! A carrinha dos "Breadwinners" chega ao Nickelodeon no dia 6 de outubro às 19:15 com Sway Sway e Buhdeuce, dois inseparáveis amigos patos distribuidores de pão, cuja principal missão é fazer chegar os pedidos a todos os esfomeados da sua cidade Pãogea... Custe o que custar! Estes dois estarolas vão invadir o canal de segunda a sexta cheios energia, alegria e uma devoção comum por pão, que é aquilo de que os verdadeiros "Breadwinners" necessitam. Sway Sway e Buhdeuce viverão um sem fim de aventuras na sua Carrinha Foguete, levando a cabo a tarefa de que mais gostam: distribuir pão!

Os patos Sway Sway e Buhdeuce, os distribuidores de pão de Pãogea, têm o objetivo de executar a tarefa para a qual nasceram: fazer chegar os pedidos de pão a todos os patos da sua cidade. Como diz o lema destes distribuidores, "Faça chuva ou faça sol, não falhamos nenhuma entrega!".

Nos episódios de outubro, Sway Sway (um pato com o ritmo no sangue, que consegue conduzir a Carrinha Foguete sem ficar despenteado) e Buhdeuce (um pato baixinho e redondo, capaz de mexer o traseiro como ninguém) não estarão sós. Juntamente com a sua mascote Jelly (uma rã domesticada) e a cisne mecânica Ketta (encarregada de arranjar a Carrinha Foguete de cada vez que esta sofre uma avaria), os dois amigos vão ver-se envolvidos em todo o tipo de situações disparatadas.

Além disso, o Mestre Padeiro, que vive no centro do planeta e é o encarregado de fazer todo o pão que existe (a matéria-prima de que ele próprio é feito), vai estar sempre ao lado dos seus distribuidores preferidos para lhes oferecer todo o tipo de ajuda ou conselhos.

Enfrentar um grupo de patos furiosos no bairro mais perigoso de Pãogea, o bairro Levedura, fazer frente ao mau hálito de Buhdeuce causado por um pão em decomposição, escapar ao monstro da mina de pão, conhecer o seu ídolo (o Mestre Padeiro), ou devolver um bebé monstro à sua mãe, são algumas das aventuras que estes intrépidos distribuidores vão viver.

Aos fins de semana, os mais pequenos vão poder seguir as andanças destes carismáticos patos: aos sábados e domingos, a partir das 10:00, o Nickelodeon transmite duplos episódios das aventuras de "Breadwinners" que decorreram ao longo da semana. E como a espera até dia 6 de outubro pode ser longa, no sábado, dia 4 de outubro, às 14:30, o Nickelodeon transmite a antestreia do primeiro episódio de "Breadwinners" depois da maratona de "SpongeBob", que terá lugar a partir das 12:25 nesse mesmo dia.

The Legend of Korra Season 4 Spoilers: The Wheelchair Bound Avatar to Head to the Southern Water Tribe for Recovery



The Legend of Korra Season 4 Spoilers: The Book 4 'Balance' will be Awesome, Teases Creator Bryan Konietzko; The Legend of Korra Season 4: Bryan Konietzko/Tumblr

The Legend of Korra Season 4 will premiere in less than a week and fans are more than excited to see Korra getting back on her feet and fighting the evils.

And it appears fans' 'get well soon' wish will soon work on their favourite character as she will be on a journey to recovery.

The promo of Book 4 of the popular animation series reveals that the successor of Aang will leave Bolin, Mako, Tenzin and others and head to the Southern Water Tribe to heal the wounds she suffered during the fatal fight with the Red Lotus in Season 3.

During the finale of Season 3, the Red Lotus administered a lethal dose of metallic poison to the 17-year-old girl from the Southern Water Tribe but she fought back and defeated Zaheer.

Suyin later removed the poisons from her body but the after-effects remained and she was left wheelchair bound.

The promo of Season 4 shows her friend bidding farewell to her as she advances towards another journey.

"I'm going to write you so many letters," Bolin says.

"I'll only be gone a couple days," Korra answers.

Click here to watch the trailer of Season 4 on Nick.com.

"I don't want you to worry about a thing while you're gone, your recovery should be your number one concern. Jinora, the airbenders, and I have everything under control," the conversation goes on.

Breathecast suspects that this will just be the beginning of the end during the final season of the Nickelodeon animation series and there is more to it than meets the eyes as the nightmare is about to unfold.

The latest season of the spin-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender is titled 'Balance' and the new episodes will premiere on Nick.com on 3 October.

Meanwhile, show creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante Dimartino have teased that every episode of the upcoming series will be worth watching.

Nickelodeon UK To Open Shop In London's Leicester Square; Planning To Open UK's First Nickelodeon Hotel

The official websites of the property news magazine Property Week News and local British newspaper The London Evening Standard are reporting the amazing Nickelodeon UK News in the following articles that Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) UK has announced that Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids and families, is planning to open its first retail store at London UK's Leicester Square, ahead of a global roll-out!

Viacom has taken a 4,000 sq ft store at Criterion Capital's One Leicester Square, which has been formally used by MTV for a central London studio (Russell Brand's "1 Leicester Square"), for the brand-new Nickelodeon Shop/Nick Shop! As part of the plans, Nickelodeon will occupy the ground and first floor of the prominent shop unit located adjacent to the renowned M&M store.

Additionally, the building has consent for hotel use and Nickelodeon is considering running a branded hotel concept, similar to the successful Nickelodeon Suites Resort (Nick Hotel) in Orlando, Florida, USA! Plans for the Nickelodeon hotel are under discussion after Criterion won planning permission this month for a 142-room hotel in the same block as the new shop.

Nickelodeon UK plans to use the shop — which will open in time for Christmas 2014 — to showcase products from the channels hit TV shows such as "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Power Rangers" and "Dora the Explorer", as well as host interactive events.

Asif Aziz, chief executive of Criterion Capital, said: "Nickelodeon is yet another iconic brand to establish a foothold in Leicester Square and is another major step forward in the area's evolution as a retail destination."

Following the opening of the Nickelodeon shop in London's Leicester Square, the children's broadcaster, famous for sliming celebrities such as David Beckham at its award shows, will then roll out its retail concept globally.

Criterion is trying to improve the area around Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus and is in the process of converting the Trocodero, where Nickelodeon UK had one of their first UK studios, into the West End's biggest budget hotel. It has agreed a deal with French group Accor to open a 583 room three star hotel.

The Nickelodeon Shop in London's Leicester Square will be Nickelodeon's second Nick store in the UK, following Nickelodeon UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK opening their first Nick Shop at Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in 2011.

The area also has a focus on childrens' entertainment including the M&M World shop, which has been a hit with tourists, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not! exhibition.

Nash Bond advised Criterion Capital, while Nickelodeon was represented by CBRE.

From Property Week:
Nickelodeon to open Leicester Square flagship store

Children's television broadcaster Nickelodeon is set to open its first retail store at London's Leicester Square, ahead of a global roll-out.


The American cable network, owned by Viacom International, has taken a 4,000 sq ft store at Criterion Capital's One Leicester Square.

The building has consent for hotel use and Nickelodeon is also considering running a branded hotel concept.

The store itself will showcase products from many of the iconic TV shows from the network, including Spongebob Squarepants and Power Rangers.

Nickelodeon will occupy the ground and first floor of the prominent shop unit located adjacent to the renowned M&M store.

Asif Aziz, chief executive of Criterion Capital, said: “Nickelodeon is yet another iconic brand to establish a foothold in Leicester Square and is another major step forward in the area's evolution as a retail destination.”

Children's TV broadcaster Nickelodeon is looking at opening a hotel in Leicester Square as it prepares to open its first standalone flagship store there.

The American cable network, owned by Viacom International, has signed up with landlord Criterion Capital — which also owns Trocadero — for a shop at One Leicester Square, near M&M's World.

Plans for the Nickelodeon hotel are under discussion after Criterion won planning permission this month for a 142-room hotel in the same block as the new shop.

Nickelodeon plans to use the shop — which will open in time for Christmas — to showcase products from its TV shows such as Spongebob Squarepants and Power Rangers as well as host interactive events.

The channel, famous for sliming celebrities such as David Beckham at its award shows, will then roll out its retail concept globally. Nickelodeon already operates stores on a concession basis and opened its first hotel more than 10 years ago — the Nickelodeon Suites Resort — in Orlando, Florida.

Asif Aziz, chief executive of Criterion, said: “Nickelodeon is yet another iconic brand to establish a foothold in Leicester Square.” Property agents Nash Bond and CBRE advised on the deal.

Criterion is trying to improve the area around Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus and is in the process of converting the Trocodero into the West End's biggest budget hotel.

It has agreed a deal with French group Accor to open a 583 room three star hotel.

The area also has a focus on childrens' entertainment including the M&M World shop, which has been a hit with tourists, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not! exhibition.
