It’s been a few months since we last found out that Loki will premiere on June 11 on Disney+, Disney’s exclusive streaming service, so it’s time to keep that hype train rolling with another trailer. And this time, there’s a lot more Owen Wilson to be found.
Loki takes place in an alternate timeline from the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe. Rather than the Tesseract getting taken by the Avengers, Loki steals it and shatters the timelines. This gets him in trouble with the Time Variance Authority, who enlists his help in order to set things right.
As you can see in the trailer, Loki's enlistment doesn't exactly go smoothly. There's a lot of paperwork involved.
Unlike in the reveal trailer, we get a good sense of the type of character that Owen Wilson will be playing. Mobius M. Mobius is a bit of an obscure character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it looks like Wilson will be giving him his signature laid-back sense of humor.
The series will span six episodes that see Loki go all throughout time and space trying to fix what has been broken. Expect a few backstabbings along the way, as is his nature.
In other Disney news, Obi-Wan Kenobi is about to start production with a star-studded cast. Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen both reprise their roles as Obi-Wan and Anakin (now Darth Vader in the series), while Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse are back as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru from Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.
Moses Ingram, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, and Sung Kang also have roles. Sadly, rumors that Jar Jar binks will return in the series for a brief cameo have turned out to be false, according to Jar Jar actor Ahmed Best.
And if that’s not enough Star Wars action for you, The Bad Batch will start streaming on Star Wars Day, May 4. That’s a hell of a way to celebrate the geekiest non-holiday of them all.
