Long before he was worthy to wield the war hammer, Mjolnir, Thor, son of Odin, was an impetuous young prince of Asgard hungry to prove himself a worth warrior. To that end, he and his half-brother, Loki, stow away with the the Warriors Three to find the Sword of Surtur in Yodenheim. However, that quest would prove more challenging than the prince anticipated as grave perils and agonizing moral choices arise. Now, Thor must call upon far more than his strength to save his people from the consequences of both of his and his father’s mistakes in an adventure that would help shape him as the great Avenger of a later time and world.

User Reviews: Really enjoyable movie covering the early years of Thor and Loki. This enhances the theatrical movie, without kissing it’s ass. For example, it still takes many designs from the original source material, even if it conflicts with the more popular movie. Seeing the realms of Asgard in animation is wonderful, as there is less of a restraint. The character arcs of Thor and Loki are also very impressive. Their relationship is shown as one of true love, but we see their reactions to taking life. This isn’t Thor Jr. and though the animation is kind of childish, there are many great themes here that would be welcome in The Avengers or any Thor sequels.
