A new trailer released in the Netherlands for The Legend of Korra season 3 offers a thrilling preview of what’s to come.
A Dutch channel has gotten the jump on Nickelodeon and recently aired a brief – but very exciting – preview from The Legend of Korra season 3. Though co-creator Bryan Konietzko has released several still images from production on the new season (titled Book 3: Change) this preview is our first look at Korra in motion since the conclusion of season 2 in November.
Though the footage of the trailer is grainy and no sound is provided, plenty of epic moments can still be glimpsed through the second-hand video capture.
Let us here at Hypable be among the first to say: Dragons! Dragons! Holy Iroh, dragons!
The 13-second teaser trailer focuses mostly on Avatar Korra, who seems to be facing a certain degree of trouble in shouldering her diplomatic duty. Korra is shown using her airbending against the ordinarily peaceful members of the White Lotus organization, as well as a group of individuals dressed in green – perhaps citizens of the Earth Kingdom, which has not yet been featured in The Legend of Korra.
There is also a nice shot of a shirtless Tenzin, who continues to excel in his role of sexy-kickass-father-figure, and a brief glimpse of Bumi and Bolin on a set of steps.
The real money shots of the video, however, come toward the end of the piece, with a look at another member of the White Lotus standing before an aforementioned dragon. Though its features are hard to make out, it is clear that the magnificent creature is red, fanged, and will at some point fly off epically into the sunset in The Legend of Korra season 3.
Though the teaser does not indicate any release date for The Legend of Korra season 3, it is heartening to know that enough footage is complete from Book 3: Change to cut together a trailer. Co-creator Mike DiMartino wrote in a recent blog post that the animation team at Studio Mir “is hard at work animating the last few episodes of Book 3.”
After the 15-month wait for Book 2: Spirits, it is thrilling to see that The Legend of Korra season 3 may light up our screens (and Tumblr dashboards) so soon.
