Several seconds into the leaked Legend of Korra Book 3 clip, a White Lotus member can be seen bending fire at an undisclosed character. The character reacts to the attack by front-flipping over the White Lotus member. The main reason why this particular character is “undisclosed” is because he or she appears to be wearing some sort of disguise. He or she is wearing green sleeves and a purple robe – almost resembling what could be a modern-day version of the Kyoshi Warrior’s armor. While I agree that this particular character probably isn’t a Kyoshi Warrior, it’s an observation nonetheless.
Speaking of observations, this mystery character doesn’t appear to perform a typical front-flip over the guards. The front-flip has a bit more juice to it, and if you analyze the video closely, you’ll notice that a band of air trails behind the character as he or she performs the front-flip. Perhaps this particular mystery character is an airbender? If that’s the case, there are very few options as to who this character is.
It could realistically either be Korra or Jinora. Judging by the character’s height, I personally think its Korra. Besides, Korra appears in all the scenes counting down the elements of water, earth and air in the clip. Why wouldn’t she be in the scene counting down the element of fire as well?

It’s been about a week since the Book 3 clip was leaked from Netherlands, but there’s still so much to cover from those 13 seconds recorded. Today, I wanted to focus on the scene depicting the group of five Earthbenders. In the scene, we see an angered Korra attacking a group of Earthbenders. The scene doesn’t give any information regarding why Korra is attacking the Earthbenders, but it’s safe to conclude that the group is probably creating some sort of conflict for Korra. Could the group of Earthbenders be associated with Book 3‘s primary villain?
If you recall past seasons (including Avatar: The Last Airbender), you’ll notice that villains from both the Fire Nation and Water Tribe have exhaustively been written. It’s only a matter of time before the writers switch things up and make the Earth Kingdom the enemy-based nation. Because the clip shows Korra attacking a group of Earthbenders, it’s safe to speculate that the prime antagonist of Book 3 could be of Earth Kingdom descent.
Aside from that, the setting of the scene appears to take place somewhere in the Earth Kingdom. There’s not much to go off of, but I believe this scene takes place in Oma Shu.

Back this week with Cast Bender Episode #63 – Trailer Madness, you are joined by Tyrell, Teagan and Max, Teagan’s brother for a jam packed episode. With fine detail, they go over the new trailer that was released in the Netherlands. First by picking part the validity of the trailer and confirming to those naysayers that indeed, the trailer is the real deal. With so many competing theories about who the antagonist of season 3 will be, the Cast Bender Team takes a look at the compelling points behind the White Lotus, the Earth Queen and maybe even a bit of Varrick to try and fit together the plot of next season and understand who will cause the main conflict.
With so much shown within the quick thirteen second trailer, Cast Bender talks about the Spirit Wilds taking over Republic City, why the White Lotus are involved this season and if they could be the major antagonists for season 3, Zuko’s potential return and how he fits in and moreover, how the now known return of dragons will effect everything else. Oh, do not forget a little room in carved out for talking about shirtless Tenzin.
Like always you can view the episode via their webpage through iTunes Stitcher Download and Stream or you can watch the YouTube version below.

In the recently released Book 3 clip, we witnessed a red Dragon soaring through the skies of the Avatar World. Aside from the fact that it could be Zuko who is riding on the neck of the Dragon, that particular scene was a huge reveal because it confirmed that Dragons have made their way back into the public eye. After years of secrecy, mostly due to precaution, Dragons will once again make their presence notable in Book 3. The original practicers of firebending will now have the ability to show all firebenders the true meaning of firebending.
As you may recall, it was Uncle Iroh who allowed Dragons to live in peace and secrecy. During the Avatar: The Last Airbender episode, titled The Firebending Masters, Zuko informed Aang that his Uncle had killed off the last Dragon. It wasn’t until the two met the Sun Warriors when they were informed that Uncle Iroh was telling a lie. Iroh publicized the lie that he had killed the last Dragon in order to ensure that no one would hunt and kill them anymore.
Since that shocking reveal, Dragons had lived in secrecy – until now. In the Book 3 clip, a character resembling an aged Zuko is seen riding a Dragon. But where did the Dragon come from? From what I can tell, there are two places where the red Dragon could have come from. The first one should be a familiar sight to Avatar fans.

A YouTuber by the name of Youp was kind enough to finally upload a high quality (HQ) version of the Book 3 clip that leaked from Netherlands. I saw the news about the upload on my Twitter feed during my Calculus lecture and genuinely thought about getting up and leaving the lecture hall to see the clip (I wanted to hear the sound, too). I ended up deciding to stick around and take notes, but I just got out of class several minutes ago and watched it – it was fantastic. It really cleared up a lot of scenes – especially the ones including that Dragon resembling Fang.
Yesterday, I talked about the scene that appeared to depict Zuko on the neck of a Dragon. I will be doing more breakdowns of each scene in the coming days. There were lots of interesting things in the 13 second clip that could be considered major plot reveals and I plan on covering them all soon.
For today, however, we have an HQ version of the leak released two days ago. And just an FYI for those of you who think this clip is fake, it’s been confirmed to be real by multiple Twitter followers from the Netherlands.
