Legend of Korra: Book Three Trailer Revealed

Avatar Legend of Korra The Last Airbender Book Three Change Trailer Nickelodeon Bumi

Nickelodeon has released the official trailer for The Legend of Korra: Book 3. This third season is entitled “Change,” and the trailer delivers on that one-word promise. If this short video is anything to go on, season three will take the action out of Republic City and beyond the Water Tribes to focus on an event that we’ve been waiting for ever since the Fire Nation attacked.

Possible spoilers/speculation on the coming season—fair warning!

It looks like the line of Aang is no longer the last of the Airbenders. Almost everyone in this trailer Airbends, up to and including a shadowy and mysterious figure who reminds us of no one more than Fire Lord Ozai (but shouldn’t he be foreverty-seven by now?). We even see what looks like Bumi bending, although that might be a fake out. Sky Bison fly in great packs. And it’s not just Air that’s being renovated. The Earthbenders are lavabending, Korra’s learning to metalbend, the Order of the White Lotus has returned, and a familiar scar has graced our screen. Plus, those in a shipping mood get a powerful new dream for the happy marriage of Land Shark with Sky Whale.

 


Stubby the Rocket is the occasionally random voice of Tor.com. Stubby learned to fly from Sky Bison, wears girders shaped by metalbenders, and has flown with whale and glider alike.

HOOOOLLLLYYYYY CRAP.
Incredibly excited for this season. Even though the first half of last season was pretty terrible, this looks amazing. Even more importantly, all the episodes are animated by Studio Mir!!! Woot!

Elderly Zuko's apperance is interesting from the brief glimpse

He looks like a leaner Iroh mized with Roku.

It makes sense, though, that he'd try to distance himself from Ozai and not mimic his apperance.

I thought I saw a young Lin Beifong? Will we see flashbacks of when Tenzin and Lin were an item?

Just YES to everything in that trailer. Now the show just has to live up to it.

Funny thing is, fans came out with another trailer a few days ago based on footage from leaked episodes. I guess Nick thus had to hurry up and get an "official" one out. :)

You can see the fan trailer, with even more Korra-riffic footage, here.

Is that the tattoo of Sparky sparky boom man? Looks like it...

Yes it IS!

The story behind him, is that he was an injured Fire Nation soldier, who found this lost technique to bend with his brain instead his limbs, which he'd lost.

So obviously this technique is no longer lost!

I thought Sparky Sparky Boom Man's backstory was that he always had the ability to bend like he did and he didn't know how to control it as a kid and accidentally blew off his own limbs.

OK, having rewatched the trailer incessantly with my daughter, it looks like some of these newly revealed airbenders are the bad guys.

So that's interesting.

And the Dai Li have a hold of Jinora.

The ACTUAL Dai Li, rock gloves and all.

And the armless waterbender looks incredible.
