The opening sequence for The Legend of Korra premiere episode of Book 4 has been released and updates fans on what’s happened in Republic City since the end of Book 3.
The Legend of Korra Book 4 will premiere this Friday, October 3. Episode 1 will be titled “After All These Years,” which is appropriate considering this season takes place three years after the end of Book 3: Change.
In this clip, we get to see how Republic City has changed. Korra has had a park named after her and her absence is noted by many who can’t wait for her return after three long years. We also see that the city’s citizens have adapted to the presence of the various spirits within their community, even going so far as to build new roads and bridges around the once obtrusive vines.
Asami has kept busy, taking over Future Industries and using her company to better Republic City, while warding off unwelcome advances from the Earth Kingdom’s future king, Prince Wu.
We also see Tenzin and his family. Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo are outfitted in slick glider uniforms while their little brother Rohan, who has grown noticeably since Book 3, sits atop his father’s shoulders.
Also, is that grey haired man, who tells Prince Wu that he’s needed elsewhere, Mako? Things have certainly changed.
IGN provided some interesting insight into the upcoming season, saying:
In Book Three, Avatar Korra had to save the world and endured her most intense battle yet. Now broken and bruised, she begins a journey of self-discovery and survival in a new world where the strong prey upon the weak. When an aggressive military force rises up led by the power hungry Kuvira, the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance and only the Avatar can set things right.
Our suspicions about Kuvira and her true intentions seemed to be correct. But what is the “power hungry” metalbender’s ultimate objective? Does she want to take over the Earth Kingdom? Perhaps she’s looking to take advantage of the kingdom’s turmoil since the death of its Queen.
The Legend of Korra Book 4, episode 1 “After All These Years” premieres October 3 on Nick.com and the Nick App.
