Late last night, Bryan Konietzko used Tumblr to release yet another image from Book 3 of The Legend of Korra. The image depicts a fierce looking Mako and Bolin wearing what looks to be pajamas. It’s late at night so it appears as though some kind of commotion caught the two brothers’ attention before they could get to bed. The way Bolin has his arms and legs positioned, it looks as though he’s about to earth bend. Mako is also in somewhat of a fighting stance. The setting of the image doesn’t really look like Republic City, so perhaps it’s an Earth Kingdom nation?
The background of the picture is a bit unclear, but it appears to be composed of walls. Perhaps Mako and Bolin are spending the night in the great city of Ba Sing Se? Book 3 will likely be a season dominated by the Earth Kingdom so it’s not a far-fetched guess.
What interests me the most about these pictures is the frequency at which they’ve been coming out as of late. Bryan has been dishing these fully-colored images out at quite the rate the past couple of weeks. To me, that’s a telling sign that Book 3 isn’t too far away.3.
You can view the fully-colored image below. Be sure to leave your thoughts and speculations regarding the setting of the picture as well what you think is going on in the picture.
