Because it was a trailer. They still have the entire series to flesh everything out.
It's most of what I've seen, it's what they chose to show off, and it's most of what any of us can comment on.
Which is- more or less- the same world as Avatar. It's the same world Aang lived in with more advancements, and one central location. There isn't much of a difference because every other location could be exactly the same. This could literally be the only city with the technology we saw.
A part of me actually hopes you're right. But then again, it is a Republic, as opposed to merely a city. There's bound to be few more, similarly-advanced places.
And why wouldn't they? Non-benders and benders working together doesn't seem so far-fetched... so why couldn't it evolve in a way that benefits both sides?
But it doesn't particularly benefit the benders. Not the cars or the roads, anyway. In fact, I'd say that the cars and roads disadvantage the benders.
I dunno; apartments, jobs, etc. Skyscraper's a literally just one large building for a bunch of stuff to be placed inside. Bending couldn't replace that at all. Not to mention the space at brings about.
Storage space? Try underground (safer, more convenient). I'll give you living space, but when you associate "jobs" with "skyscrapers", an image of accountants and desk jobs comes to my mind.
I don't think changes would be that drastic, and culture is probably the same as before.
Yeah, the technology of the civilization. Not so much their jobs, life at home, foods, vacations, life outside the city... see where I'm going with this?
Yeah... I hardly believe those have remained the same.
It may look this way, but bending is probably very involved in the city. Why would their be an uprising against benders if there wasn't?
Because they can do things you can't and you're scared of them. I dunno, I'm not a political expert.
Who is to say they even use these things?
Pretty reasonable to assume they do, actually. Roads are all around the place, and it'd be a nightmare for people running on the earth to occupy the same roads as cars.
Non-benders are present. Of course they'd influence technology.
It's more than an "influence". It feels more like a "taking over" of the development of technology.
