Thor: Love and Thunder, set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on September 8

This Disney+ Day, the God of Thunder is set to embark on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced-— one of self-discovery, as Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder is set to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and English on the 8th of September. Directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Waititi and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, the film is an all-round entertainer with romance, comedy and action soaked into every frame of the movie. 

Thor was once an arrogant and impulsive prince banished from Asgard by his father Odin. Since then, he’s experienced tremendous growth and loss — haunted by the belief that anyone he loves will meet certain death. After the Battle of Earth, he relinquishes the throne of New Asgard and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. But when a new enemy emerges, intending to eliminate all gods, the God of Thunder must uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him. 

Since 2011, Thor has appeared in seven MCU features and Marvel Studios’ What If …?” animated series, becoming the first character to lead four franchise films. MCU veteran Chris Hemsworth returns to the title role of Thor, God of Thunder, in the movie, and for fans around the world, Chris Hemsworth simply is Thor, yet he still feels compelled to explore and evolve his role.

“There was a huge amount of pressure coming into this. Thor is the only character to make a fourth film so far, so I wanted to do something different. I want to always do better with this character,” admitted Hemsworth.

“In ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ we see a pretty confused, lost version of Thor. He’s certainly better at the end of the film than he was at the start, but he still doesn’t really know who he is or what his place is in the universe. And he decides he needs to search and take some time for himself,” said Hemsworth. 

Thor: Love and Thunder is the record-breaking fourth installment featuring Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, and Chris is joined by Oscar® winner Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/the Mighty Thor; Oscar winner Christian Bale as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher; Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie/King of New Asgard; Oscar winner Russell Crowe as Zeus, king of the gods and Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket.
