Thor and Loki Given a Modern Twist in Netflix’s “Ragnarok” – Watch the Trailer Now

“Ragnarok” is almost upon us with Netflix’s upcoming Norwegian coming-of-age drama series. The 6-episode show will arrive on Netflix around the world on January 31st and you can see the brand new trailer, as well as some images, below. The Norwegian language series is based in the fictitious town of Edda in the middle of the vast and enthralling Norwegian countryside and is a modern day coming of age drama rooted in Norse mythology, set in a high school arena. In the trailer we see two brothers arriving at a new school – Magne and Laurits. Magne, we are told, “has other strengths” – which we see throughout the trailer such as physical strength as well as appearing to control lightning (sound familiar, anyone?). His brother, Laurits, on the other hand, looks very similar to Tom Hiddleston’s version of Loki from the MCU… The Giants (Frost Giants?) are still in the area, hidden after many years and only The Gods can stop another Ragnarok from happening.

Ragnarok is a coming-of-age drama building on and contributing to a new and surprising angle on Norse mythology. The series is set in the small, fictitious town of Edda, situated in the grand, breathtaking Norwegian nature. The story revolves around the inhabitants of Edda, who are perhaps not all who they claim to be. With them, we experience a drastically changing world: melting poles, warm winters, violent downpours. Some might say we’re headed for yet another Ragnarok. Unless someone intervenes in time…
