Whoa — where to begin?? There’s a ton of footage packed into this first look trailer and I couldn’t be more excited. The animation is sharper and more dynamic, there are tons of new faces joining the cast (including a few from ATLA), and hints at a plot that could jump back and forth in time. What do you see? Here are a few moments that jumped out:
:32 - Imprisoned ____? Later in the trailer, we see him airbend!
:38 - Is that Bumi airbending?
:42 - Gal with eye on her forehead. You tell me. What are we looking at?
:47 - Crazy-eyed lady who can waterbend. Instantly thought Azula, but this is a waterbender….
:57 - Is this kid a new airbender or just a follower of the Airbender way? He has a staff…
:59 - I swear this looks like a young Lin Beifong. More flashbacks this season?
1:02 - Yes, Asami action!
1:10 - Jinora, back aestral projecting herself in the spirit world. But a very creepy spirit world.
1:13 - Earth Kingdom evil lady who kind of looks like President Raiko’s gal pal (but isn’t, I know)
1:18 - ZUKO. Da7e just sighed a breath of relief.
1:23 - Another airbender, this time in Earth Kingdom-looking threads.
1:24 - A Dune-like sandworm. I am so ready for more Korra fantasy (rather than tech-heavy Republic City)
1:27 - The evil waterbender returns. She really looks like Azula. Offspring? 1:30 - Jinora falling — noooo!
1:34 - Korra with a whale spirit, recalling Star Trek IV
1:40 - Zuko in action. Most excellent.
1:45 Evil Waterbending lady leading some nega-Team Avatar. Terrifying.
What did I miss? What are we looking at? Go to town in the comments!
(And please, please, please, if you couldn’t resist the temptation of devouring those leaked episodes do not share what you know about them. We’re not OK with the leaks, and as fans, we want to experience this show as Bryke intended. Again, no episode talk right now.)
