While the God of Mischief will take a while to come on Disney+, the series will showcase his struggle with his identity. In the latest episode of The Writers Panel with Ben Blacker podcast,  Loki creator Michael Waldron said, “I think it’s the struggle with identity, who you are, who you want to be. And I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly, you see that with Loki over the first 10 years of movies. He’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything, and that manifests itself through anger and spite towards his family.”

Loki stars Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Richard E. Grant in pivotal roles.
