    I was wondering about that. Will Korra have to learn from a Skybison. Are there still Skybison? We saw one in the trailer.

    Korra is going to learn from Aang's son Tenzin

    So will Korra learn from a psychologist, white supremacist, or Jonah Jameson?

    Good choice on VA though. Guy does kickass work.

    I'd call her a less good bender because it wasn't sustainable in the long-term.

    Her skill was still higher than his. As was Iroh's, Ozai's, and Jeong Jeong's. That she had a mental breakdown after being betrayed by her two best friends doesn't change that.

    On the other hand, Zuko clearly wants to be the very best, like no one ever was. To learn it all is his real test, to train it is his cause. He will travel across the land, searchin' far and wide. Each technique to understand the power that's inside Firebending! It's Iroh and he. He knows it's his destiny! Firebending, ooh with his his best friend in a world they must defend! Firebending a heart so true. Their courage will pull them through. Iroh'll teach him and he'll teach Iroh firebending. Gotta learn it all, gotta learn it all, yeah.
    Every challenge along the way with courage he will face. He will battle everyday to claim his rightful place. Trust in him, the time is right; there's no better team. Arm in arm, they'll win the fight. It's always been their dream: Firebending! It's Iroh and he. He knows it's his destiny! Firebending, ooh with his his best friend in a world they must defend! Firebending a heart so true. Their courage will pull them through. Iroh'll teach him and he'll teach Iroh firebending. Gotta learn it all, gotta learn it all. Gotta learn it all.

    Also everyone in that trailer is all wearing modern clothes and shit, but Korra's in the original waterbender tribe parka thing. How many dudes is she going to cockpunch for calling her a hick?

    As many as it takes. Which is for the best.

    This resolves *part* of my bitching about no progress being made after Steampunk Era + 70 years.

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it progress, but I would like to see change.

    Did you miss the car? there's a car at one point. And skyscrapers.

    Looks like you missed the cars and electric wires running throughout the city in the trailer. I suggest you watch again, moar closely.

    The animation showcased in that trailer was siiiiiiiiick. Super fluid and better looking than the animation I remember from the original series, which was still really great.

    It looked way more visceral. I liked the camera effects (if you can really call it that?). One of my main gripes from AtLA was how the firebending didn't feel like it had any real impact. Yes, I know that fire doesn't technically have any force, but it still felt kind of light and fluffy. That trailer makes firebending seem heavy and goddamn powerful.

    Worth noting that the voice at the end and one of the youtube comments makes me think the thing is sped up somewhat (likely the original is 1:30 or something?)

    Either that or he's sucking helium.

    Also I just came across this info, haven't seen it posted.
    The city is called United Republic and it was founded by Aang and Zuko.

    The two guys in the poster with Korra are Mako (firebender) and Bolin (earthbender), and they are brothers.

    The polar bear dog is female and her name is Naga.

    Bolin has a pet fire ferret named Paboo.

    There will be new flying bison and new lemurs.

    There will be two seasons -- season 1 will have 12 episodes, season 2 will have 14 episodes.

    Aang and Katara had three kids, Tenzin being the youngest and only airbender.

    Tenzin has three kids of his own.

    Anti-benders use chi-blocking.

    There are metalbending cops.

    Toph traveled the world to teach metalbending after the war was over, and her daughter Bei Fong is the chief of police.

    There will be mixed martial arts in the series, and the music was described as 1920s jazz invented by the Chinese.

    I kinda wish metalbending stayed a Toph-only thing, or at least with high-level Earthbenders, but with a lot more metal in this one (it's a city not made of rock...), that's understandable.

    And really, I'm just being silly, I am so psyched. A fire ferret!

    It's what I'm looking forward to the most. It's a background that rarely gets a really fantastic setting barring the usual Cthulhu stuff.

    Really looking forward to this.

    Hopefully the protagonist will be a little less anguished in this one. That wore a little thin in the original series at times.

    I really hope, if Korra does well, that we'll see them go back and "re-master" Avatar, because it makes me so sad that it is stuck in the world of 4:3 and non-HD.

    I mean, I doubt it would happen, but it would be fantastic.

    I'd find it refreshing if they set this future world to be based on 1920s Shanghai/China, ala Kung Fu Hustle (and Hong Kong with that boat scene where there is a statue of Aang).

    I also do hope they fit in all the cliches for that era, especially the gambling movies :D

  • SchrodingerSchrodinger Registered User regular
    So based on that trailer, I assume that Korra is the best fire bender ever, right?

    She's an Avatar who's learned 3 of the 4 disciplines and she's spent a year or more learning each so she's going to be pretty damn good.
