The Rift trilogy includes:
The Rift shifts the focus back to Aang as he begins the process of creating Republic City, in contrast to The Search, which was more focused on the story of the Fire Nation Royal Family. Toph's relationship with her parents, Lao and Poppy, will also be explored to some degree, with Yang wanting to give Toph, who was absent from The Search trilogy, a larger role.
