I saw that the Korra Shipping Thread had a new thread, so I though, so should this one. :]
And considering we have that beast of a trailer. Cheesy

I've noticed that the bridge in United Republic, looks a lot like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Fransico.

Golden Gate.


So... Yeah.

Double meaning on his shirt. "Equal" as well as "peace". Heh.

Someone noticed that the statue of Aang looks like the Statue of Liberty. Because the theory is that It's suppose to take place in a New York/China type setting in the 1920's.

Good idea Luna!!! I'm too lazy to put pictures in but did anyone notice that when that one guy goes flying into a store window, all these old fashioned grandfather clocks are on the ground? It has nothing to do with the show really, it just looks funny xD

A lot of Republic City from the street level looks like Treasure Town in Tekkon Kinkreet

The scene of them showing the park looks a bit like Central Park in New York, for some reason.

Around 1:03 (when Korra kicks the Lieutenant in the face), she briefly freaks out.
The huge park in Republic City looks a lot like Central Park in NYC.
The arenas look a lot like Pokemon tournament arenas!
The cars are based off of real vehicles at the time! Plus there's electricity.
The scene where the camera spins around two guys in kind of modern clothing to show Korra looks like a scene from an anime called Baccano (which takes place in 1920s NYC).
Bolin has really bright green eyes! He also looks like his voice actor Smiley
Mako looks kinda like Lavi from D. Gray-man, minus the headband and eyepatch.
At the very end of the clip, Korra is smiling!
I can't tell what Bolin says at the end, but it sounds like "The Avatar!"

In the trailer, when Naga and Korra round a street corner, a CAR crashes into some train/Tank thing. It was like an Asian version of an old, old, British or American car. Like, the kinds with cranks and carriages.

They've got to do a Legend of Korra: Art of the Animated Series book so we can drool over all the art designs for United Republic. It looks so cool!

The Aang of Liberty (fandom name, make it stick!  Grin) also partly reminds me of depictions of the Colossus of Rhodes, which the Stature of Liberty also takes some notes from. Also, the animation quality of the water in that same scene is superb.


Someone mentioned the arena looked like a Pokemon dueling arena. I had not noticed this, but now that it's been pointed out, might I say...

I think that bridge actually resembles more of the brooklyn bridge in new york.

^ No, I'm pretty sure it's the same, it probably looks different because everything is in a blue hue, maybe.

Nah, the bridge looks like Manhattan Bridge, which is mostly exposed metalwork, whereas the Brooklyn Bridge is brick.

OMEFFING-G. I just noticed that at the end of the trailer when Bolin says, "The Avatar!" That he and a person standing slightly beyond the camera are wear what I assume to be their combat suits for the tourney thing, yet Korra is not, as we have seen her in before. I think that person standing beyond is Mako and I think that's when the brothers meet Korra. At the tourney, and they find out she's the Avatar. AHHH I HOPE THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENS!!! Cheesy
