11 Mind-Bending Moments From The "Avatar: Legend Of Korra" Season 3 Trailer

The return of Zuko, armless waterbenders, and our first glimpse of the Earth Queen!

On the evening of June 11th, the creators of Avatar: Legend of Korra responded to the premature leaking of six of season three’s episodes by releasing the official trailer for Book Three: Change.

The trailer teases a host of new characters, the return of some familiar faces, and some extremely impressive bending battles! Here’s what to take away from it:

1. There are two new locations for this season: one resembles the Sandbender village from Avatar: The Last Airbender and the other is a shining white citadel.

2. A whole new host of air nomads! Are they merely Tenzin’s acolytes or genuine, honest-to-goodness airbenders?

Judging by later clips of multiple characters bending air, it’s probable that they’re the real deal.

3. Speaking of airbending, is this a clip of Bumi showing some newfound skills?

To refresh: Bumi is (was?) the only one of Avatar Aang’s children who is a non-bender.

4. This girl???

We thought we saw the last of this ominous eye symbol with the destruction of Sparkly Boom Boom Man from the last series- so who is this girl? Is her resemblance to Azula a coincidence?

5. This new character appears to have no arms, and compensates by bending water to BECOME HER ARMS.

6. Magma bending!

The skill of magma-bending hasn’t been introduced yet in the series. Is it the domain of earthbenders because of the rock or is it a firebending skill because of the heat?

7. Kya, the waterbending daughter of Avatar Aang and Katara, is very casually water-slapping an airplane OUT OF THE SKY.

She takes after her mama, that one.

8. Asami saves the day by spiriting Korra away…but why and where?

9. Tenzin’s daughter Jinora has apparently figured out how to spiritually project herself into places, which is nice.

10. All hail the Earth Queen!

11. And finally: welcome back to Team Avatar, former Fire Lord Zuko!

We’d recognize that scar and that #honor anywhere.
