Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ragnarok is a teen-oriented supernatural series based on Nordic mythology that contains strong pro-environmental themes. It contains some innuendo, partial nudity (buttocks), bullying, and some violent moments, including bloody accidents and gruesome attacks against animals. Death is also a theme. The English-dubbed version includes curses like "f--k," and teens are shown smoking and drinking. Social media outlets like Facebook are referenced, YouTube is featured, and the Apple logo is prominently visible.
Is It Any Good?
Despite being a bit over the top, this series is surprisingly entertaining, and manages to be so while consistently delivering strong pro-environmentalist messages. Thor meets Twilight in this unique fictional climate change series (often referred to as "cli-fi"), which uses a powerful Nordic myth as the metaphor for a contemporary battle to protect the environment. Magne is a slow, clunky, dyslexic teen whose heroics are rooted in his natural desire to do good, and the use of hammers and brute strength to fix what is wrong. Meanwhile, the Jutul family are the obvious enemies, thanks to the corporations' Earth-destroying activities, and some strange dynamics that suggest that they know more about the mythical mountain dwelling giants (the Jøtul) than they let on. There's also plenty of teen angst that evolves throughout the supernatural drama to keep things interesting.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
