If you haven’t gotten caught up with Nickelodeon’s excellent animated series The Legend of Korra, now’s a great time to do so since the kid-friendly network has released an official trailer for the show’s third season.  The series takes place a number of years after Avatar: The Last Airbender and centers on the title character, a new Avatar attempting to improve her abilities and find her place in a difficult world.

While there’s no word just yet as to when the third season will kick off, this trailer certainly suggests the major theme will be “Change.”  A fitting subtitle considering the events at the end of the series’ second season.  Hit the jump to watch The Legend of Korra: Book 3 trailer. [Update: Season three will debut on Nickelodeon Friday, June 27th at 7pm with two episodes.  There will be a July 4th break before the season resumes its Friday 8pm slot starting July 11th, says IGN.]

The official trailer for The Legend of Korra: Book 3 appears below (via Nickelodeon):

    Change would be a good thing, since the show hasn’t come close to living up to the greatness of A: TLA. I haven’t cared about any of these characters, least of all moody Korra herself.

    A shame, because I think the show’s done some pretty excellent world-building. But the characters are a bore (not to mention a few who are downright annoying), and the plot has gone nowhere. It seemed like the show was starting to find its way at the end of season 1, but I lost interest in season 2 in a hurry. I finally gave up on it.

      But this trailer looked interesting enough that maybe I’ll drop back in on the show. And If they’d ever decide to kill off the annoying Bolin, I’d definitely start watching again.

      I think my friend said it best that the creators of this show are great visionaries, they created a truly fantastic world with interesting lore and history and also filled with well-designed characters. The problem is that they suck at storytelling. They make these intriguing character designs (Korra – a strong female main character, Mako n Bolin – characters marked by personal tragedy, forced to live on their own, etc), but then they completely ruin them (Bolin becomes nothing but a comic relief sidekick, Mako is there only to fill love triangle, Korra won’t learn from her mistakes, etc).

      Even the original series had problems with plot sometimes, but somehow they managed to make it right most of the time. I don’t know what is different now, but this show is clearly a step down from the original. No character development, sometimes too convenient plot progression, black and white villains (the original series at least had Iroh and Zuko) and oh all the wasted opportunities (like mentioning that there is a social inequality between benders and non-benders, but then never mentioning it again later in the show).

    Hopefully Korra learns to actually listen to people and think before she acts…her pigheadedness has really gotten in the way of the series an without it things could have been a lot easier for her…anyone else think of the Raid 2 trailer while watching this?

    1st Season was amazing, and idk what guy Guy Smiley is talking about but it def lived up to Last Airbender. Was it better than last Air Bender? No. But still amazing and better than most animated shows imho. 2nd season was good, but a step dwon fron the 1st season for sure.

    • hazzin

      You are entitled to your opinion. I agree that it is better than most animated shows on TV right now, but hardly amazing. Too many missed opportunities. That is imho the biggest disappointment. They start out great with plot and antagonists in all shades of grey, but then they turn out to be just your ordinary Disney evil villains.

      The first season was much better than all 3 from The Last Airbender, I went through them all a while back and they’re not as great as you’d think (still really good though). Only when the show ended did it start getting really mature, and Korra carried that through.

      Stopped watching Korra S2 halfway through, it was a real disappointment.

      • Gooniesmurf

        Stopped watching Korra immediately after the ending of Season 1. That ending was an ass pull/plotkai bs, enough for me to not even bother with the show any more.

      • Aquartertoseven

        You mean that 10/10 episode? They didn’t know if they getting anymore seasons, so they had to end it somehow, and what they did, while perhaps a little rushed, worked very well.

      • Gooniesmurf

        Sorry for the belated response.

        I meant SE1E12. By having Korra MAGICALLY have access BACK to her elemental powers and restore those who had theirs taken away, made the entire season a joke. It literally was a cop-out. Amon was a treat for a reason, and a very good one too, which made every bender even an avatar scared, and to simply just nullify his actions like that, did not bode well with me and other people. Also to have his own brother kill him and himself was unjustified, I don’t remember them having a relationship resembling that of the Clegan Household in Game of thrones.

        As for them not knowing if they were getting anymore seasons, that statement is not true, that is not even possible. Before the Legend of Korra was scheduled to broadcast. The creators/producers talked about the given the widely accepted preceding show Avatar, that they had so much things (big plans) that might have not been possible with Avatar, that they are willing to consider for Korra. Their idea was for Korra to follow the book/Season structure of Avatar.

        Just for argument sake, if indeed they thought it was going to be a one season show. From the start of the show, it was always average at best, in my opinion though as opinions go, yours may differ and I can respect that.

      • Aquartertoseven

        I get what you mean, but Aang could take away bending, it’s a fairly logical extension that bending could be restored too.

        I read so many articles about how another season wasn’t a certainty, literally loads. Just because they hoped to do more doesn’t mean they expected another season.

        Always average at best?? It was a great season, had two 10/10 episodes if I recall correctly.

    The only problem I have with this show is that some of the dialog is a little hammy, and that’s something I can live with.
