Just ahead of the release of the first episode of the second season of “Loki”, Disney has held fan events in multiple cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Toronto. At each venue, excited fans attended a screening of the first two episodes of the new season. The fan events also featured extras, such as photo opportunities, props and costumes from the series. To add to the fun, many enthusiastic fans got into the spirit by showing up to the events dressed as their favourite “Loki” character.
“Loki” Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.
