Leaked screen shots of The Legend of Korra season 3 confirm that the new season will heavily feature the Earth Kingdom, more specifically the great city of Ba Sing Se. (check out the leaked episode titles here) Over half of the images leaked are of Ba Sing Se and the rest relate to characters within and outside the cities walls. One of the most notable characters is the once Fire Lord Zuko. Zuko now travels the world as an ambassador for peace, but judging by the screenshots, it looks like he’ll have a major role in season 3.
The one thing you’ll notice about Ba Sing Se is that it doesn’t look as developed as Republic City. Based on the screenshots, Be Sing Se looks very much unchanged which is GREAT news for me because I absolutely loved the city. It looks a bit more cramped, in my opinion, but that should be expected since the walls create a very constricted area to build in.
Aside from Ba Sing Se, Zuko is back – and so is Desna and Eska who are shown with Zuko and Tonraq. It’s an interesting bunch to pair up, and I suppose it’ll be fun to see how that story arc goes.
The first screenshot shows Korra and Tenzin flying to airship to the great city of Be Sing Se.
The airship is approaching the outer wall. This is where Aang created the Zoo in The Tales of Ba Sing Se. Okay – I think I may tear bend. That scene with Uncle Iroh was too much.
The very crowded buildings within the walls of Be Sing Se.
The air ship is passing through and see it from the perspective of civilians. This could be the poor district of Be Sing Se.
Our first look at Ba Sing Se from a ground level. It does look a bit more industrialized, but no where near Republic City status.
The air ship is flying over Ba Sing Se again.
Bolin arrives with Pabu on his shoulder. It looks like Team Avatar was expected as they appear to be greeted by royalty.
Korra and Asami are practicing combat. We saw a similar screenshot from Bryan’s Tumblr.
Team Avatar is likely being greeted by a higher power (NOT Long Feng) in this scene.
This looks to be an updated version of the Ba Sing Se monorail.
This could be the starting position of the Ba Sing Se monorail.
It looks like this Ba Sing Se resident is not too happy with Korra.

Finally – a close up of 85 year-old Zuko.
