Combustion Girl and what looks like Bumi air bending. Interesting.
There's also a sequence with an Earth Kingdom person airbending.

Perhaps everyone can become a bender now that the spirit world has opened up?

Re: The Legend of Korra: Book 3 Trailer

It looks like the combustion girl, the magma guy, the waterbender who extends her? arms in water tentacles, and the guy with an incomplete left eyebrow are some kind of criminal gang.

I thought Book 3 would be mainly about spirit-human disputes in the wake of Book 2, but that doesn't look like it's going to be the case.

Re: The Legend of Korra: Book 3 Trailer

Yeah, there appears to be a lot of non-air nomad airbending going on. Is it possible they've come across descendants of some that escaped the Fire Nation attacks? Is it because the spirit gates are now open? Or are the Sky Bison just taking new students?

Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like there's a flashback in there somewhere featuring a young Lin Beifong and (I presume) Tenzin.
Also, looks like there's a metal bending nation now too. Or at least a city of metal benders judging by the architecture. Speaking of, I noticed Korra now has a reel of steel cable on her belt. I forget, did she learn metalbending already, or is that new?

I don't think we've seen her metalbend, but given her affluence for all other types of bending, it seems like something she would be able to pick up rather easily.

Someone on YouTube (I think they got ahold of and watched the leaked episodes in Spanish) said that people have spontaneously developed airbending possibly as a result of Korra opening the spirit portals. And the metalbending city is run by Lin's sister/Toph's daughter. In her youth she got involved in crime, and Lin got her face scars from capturing her.

Producers won't say that until SDCC this year apparently.

Wow, that was a great trailer.
There's also a different fan trailer put together by someone who got a hold of leaked episodes.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Three: Change

According to this source, season 3 is set to air in Brazil in September. Based on that, it's being speculated that the U.S. will get it earlier, possibly this summer. One person in the comments section of the linked article suggests that maybe they'll show episode 1 at the San Diego Comic Con and that we'll get an airing soon after. At the very least, it looks like we'll get a release date at Comic Con and a premiere by September, which is what I've been thinking would happen.

Here are the titles for the first six episodes…

3x01: "A Breath of Fresh Air"
3x02: "Rebirth"
3x03: "The Earth Queen"
3x04: "In Harm's Way"
3x05: "The Metal Clan"
3x06: "Old Wounds"

A person with two elements? I didn't notice that. I've been speculating on a possible change in the nature of bending for a while now and it looks like something along those lines is coming to pass. I'll have to wait to see what direction they actually go in before I comment further though.


Something also tells me that Korra will be the last avatar due to all the changes and developments we've seen on the show and in the trailer.

Not necessarily. There are plenty of non-benders in the Earth Kingdom. One of them could become an airbender and still only have the one element.

Doesn't look like it, assuming that this is her. Anything is possible though I suppose.

Ah, I misread RoJo's post. Guess we'll have to wait and see if people can get two elements.

Nope. And according to the YouTuber I referenced earlier,


Oh, and the YouTuber pointed out to me something I didn't notice in the official trailer: the waterbending member of that apparent 4-person criminal squad is missing her arms and waterbends as a substitute.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Three: Change

Get ready. Book 3 starts next week.



Two episodes will air on June 27th at 7PM on Nickelodeon. Then there's a third bonus episode at 8PM. I'm not sure if it's the actual third episode or a special. If they were going to air 3 episodes, they should have just said that.

Source

This is rather sudden. I wonder if the leaked episodes have anything to do with the decision to start Book 3 now.

3x01: "A Breath of Fresh Air" After the events of Harmonic Convergence, Avatar Korra discovers that her decision to leave the spirit portals open has unexpected consequences. Wild spirit vines have overgrown Republic City and Airbenders are suddenly popping up across the four nations.

3x02: "Rebirth of a Nation" Korra, Tenzin and Team Avatar search for new Airbenders in an effort to recruit them and rebuild the Air Nation. Meanwhile, a band of sinister criminals are organizing to hunt down the Avatar themselves.
