Team Korra, we have a date! On Friday afternoon, Nickelodeon announced that the first THREE episodes of the third season of The Legend of Korra will air this Friday, June 27, starting at 7 PM/6 Central. They will then take a week hiatus for 4th of July weekend, then air weekly on Fridays at 8 PM.
And of course, being the NOC’s resident Korra experts, Rodrigo and I will be on-hand to recap every episode!
In case you missed it, here is the official Season 3 Trailer:
Here are just some of the goodies in the trailer that just blew our minds:
- Bumi is air-bending!
- EVERYONE is air-bending! And look at that inclusive group of air benders — including our first chubby girl bender! Guess I now know what this year’s Halloween costume will be.
- So many sky bison! Will we see the return of Blueberry Spicehead?!?
- Could this possibly be Grown-Up Toph??? She certainly resembles Toph and Lin Beifong, but she doesn’t seem blind, so it is probably a long-shot.
- Old Man ZUKO!!! No doubt about this one! And we will accept no one other than Dante Basco to bring him to life!
- Sparky Boom Boom… Woman? Turns out Combustion Man has a descendent! She looks like she inherited his cold-blooded laser explosion talents. Let’s see how Team Avatar gets out of this one.
- This looks like Tonraq, Korra’s father, on the offensive, with Korra’s twin cousins, Desna and Eska, helping out. Such a relief to see the family has reconciled.
- Asami saves Korra… again. We hope the writers give Asami a raison d’être besides being Mako’s girlfriend or ex-girlfriend this season! Although kudos to the art department for making her hair look especially spectacular in this shot.
- It seems like Korra will have to deal with the ramifications of her decision last season to leave the portals between the spirit world and the human world open. From this shot, it looks like some of the consequences are serious.
