Got my schedule for class
Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years.
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, and if Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer.
An article inthe Korea Herald had the following to say:
“The contract with DreamWorks is meaningful since we will be working as partners,” Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said.
“This has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
A Studio Mir spokesman said details regarding the titles of the cartoons could not be revealed, but that they would be in 2-D.
This is great news for both companies, since each has had some fairly concerning press in the past few weeks, between the financial troubles of Dreamworks Animation (now under direction of new chief financial officer Fazal Merchant) and the on-again/off-again nature of Korra Book Three, now safely on Nick.com.
Speaking of The Legend of Korra, Studio Mir uploaded a lovely picture on Facebook yesterday thanking fans for their support of Book Three.

I wasn’t referring to Eren’s voice actor with an older voice, I was referring to Jean’s and a few others. But I’m sorry for not making that clear.

Three years and ten months - that’s how long it’s been since Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was first revealed in a blaze of glory (and animated trailer). Since then there’s been a second Ace Attorney Investigations game released, a fifth Ace Attorney game announced, developed, and released internationally, another spinoff series announced, and three Layton games released internationally.
Busy times for both series, but for North American fans, the wait is finally over. Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney launches today in North America, and is available now on the Nintendo eShop for $29.99 USD. Tomorrow, a physical copy will hit store shelves.
As always, the C-R forums are open for discussion of the game and anything else AA-related. We’re still on the lookout for people to provide content (case summaries, walkthroughs, etc.), so if you’re interested, reach out to us through e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org - no, there’s no ‘s’) or post on the forums to let us know.
Finally, our OC Contest is coming into the home stretch - and there’s PLvsPW artbooks and plenty of other swag still up for grabs!
So dust off your top hats and pick up your picarats, folks. A very special court is now in session.
