Is Loki Kid-Friendly? Parental Guide
Yes, every Marvel family has been itching for Loki for a while. More so, after Wandavision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier aired. Luckily, the wait is over. But, should children watch it too? This series streams on Disney + starting June 9th. It is rated rated TV-14 for language and action. We go through our accustomed points to help you decide if Loki is a go for your entire family of Marvel fans.
What Parents Need to Know about Loki
Undoubtedly, Loki has a strong fan base and we are all very ready to watch this new series. After our heartbreak from Infinity War, we couldn’t be happier for this program. Marvel families are ready. But can or will everyone enjoy it? Meaning, Is Loki Kid-Friendly?To start consider that perhaps the rhythm of the program can be equated to Wandavision’s. The episodes start with explanations and helping us understand location plus circumstances.
Action – Violence
From the two episodes we watched, there is minor action. Compared to a Marvel production, there is no action. In terms of violence, we see some at the end of episode 2. It might be that it starts bundling up. Nevertheless, in episode 1 subduing a suspect with advanced batons can constitute violence. As well as, the harsh way in which suspects are handled. But nothing over the top….yet.
Language and Gestures
If your kids have watched Marvel movies, there is no danger here. As a matter of fact, it is much more tamed than an actual movie. Or, even more so than The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
The God of mischief has been apprehended after escaping. Loki stands to be erased if he doesn’t cooperate. So, yes, there is tension. And, there is killing and fires. But, nothing yet that need to be underlined if kids have already watched anything Marvel.
Besides emotional flashback that take us back to great Loki moments, Loki is undressed by a machine. No major body parts are shown. Apparent death happens as well as kidnapping. Plus, minor fighting.
Overall, Is Loki Kid Appropriate For Those Under 14?
Kids 10 and under might get bored at the lack of the MCU fight scenes we are used to from Marvel. While funny, too much dialogue might have kids 9 and younger loosing interest quickly. There is a lot of this in the first two episodes as we are getting situated and educated. Yes, it is a slow start. And, it could get a bit confusing.
It does feel like it talks and acts along the same lines as Wandavision. Perhaps we get to see more of a relationship like we did with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. So far, minus the action. For now, it feels a bit more intellectual and Marvel educational. But, that is all part of the mystery and mischief we ought to expect of the story line.
