As "The Legend of Korra" Book 3 returns to Nickelodeon, some are comparing the epic adventure to "Game of Thrones."

"It may seem like there’s an absence of beautifully shot and well-written fantasy on television this winter. Fear not. ‘The Legend of Korra’ can quench your thirst for Westeros," writes the Daily Beast contributor David Levesley.

"Great write up! I met George RR Martin at the hotel bar at Comic Con a couple years ago and told him about 'Legend of Korra,'" wrote co-creator Michael DiMartino. "He was all like, 'I’m not familiar with that program.' He should totally watch it, sounds like he’d like it!"

Meanwhile, "The Legend of Korra" Book 3 has introduced several new characters to the fray, and now fans will be introduced to the voice actors as well.

"We are thrilled to announce Henry Rollins as the voice of the Book 3 main villain, Zaheer," wrote Bryan Konietzko on Tumblr. "Henry did a brilliant turn in this role, taking it very seriously from the get-go, going so far as to conduct an in-depth interview about the character, his background, and his motivations with Mike and me on the phone while he was on a spoken word tour––all before he even recorded his audition."

Meanwhile, actor Skyler Brigmann is the voice actor behind new Airbender Kai.

"He was about a foot shorter when we recorded Book 3. Kai’s all grown up!" added DiMartino with an attached photo.

"The Legend of Korra" Book 3 currently airs on Fridays on Nickelodeon!
