Disney Plus’ LOKI Parents Guide Review
After Loki (Tom Hiddleston) dies in Avengers: Infinity War, we see him pop back up again in Avengers: Endgame. There the mischievous god steals the Tesseract and uses it to pop into a different period of time. In Disney Plus’ Loki, we see him pop through time and meet the TVA (Time Variance Authority). At the TVA, Loki meets Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) who gives him an ultimatum; he can either help fix the timeline or be erased from existence.
LOKI Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Lets take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids view Disney Plus’ Loki.
Language: There is the occasional cuss word in the series, words include: jacka**, sh*t, d*mn, imbecile, and hell.
Mature Content: There are some triggering moments from Loki’s past and relationship with his family that may envoke some strong emotions. Violence is the other big lookout in this show. They showed some characters being burned alive, fighting, and death. There was a dead body shown in episode 1.
If I was to say anything about Loki after watching the first two epsiodes of the new Disney Plus series, I would say be prepared to get a refresher of where Loki has been along with being introduced to the TVA (Time Variance Authority) and where Loki fits into this world. Admittedly, after watching the first episode my head was spinning a bit and I was trying to recollect the little details from the last time we came across the mischievous god in the MCU. In fact, if I were to give any advice before watching the new series, I would suggest to rewatch the Thor and Avengers (Infinity War and Endgame) films.
A new bromance is beginning to develop in Loki and Owen Wilson’s character Agent Mobius and it is amazing to view. Hiddleston and Wilson have great chemistry together on screen, and their witty back and forth banter will have audiences cracking up. Owen Wilson in particular is an exceptional addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he matches wits and charisma with Hiddleston. The two of them together are a joy to watch.
Unlike The Falcon And The Winter Soldier series, which gave up big budgeted Hollywood action scenes from the get-go, Loki is a bit of a slow-burn. The first two episodes centered more on building up the back story and plot of the series, along with new character development. Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Wunmi Mosaku are also introduced and present a strong female presence juxtaposed to Wilson and Hiddleston. I am excited to see where their fate lies within the Loki series, although many have their theories!
Although we have barely scratched the surface of the new Loki series, watching just the first two episodes of the six episode series, I have no doubt this is going to be another Marvel winner to hit the streaming service. Kevin Feige is not going to let fans down, giving them a taste of greatness while having us crave for more.
