‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Due on Digital Sept. 8, Disc Sept. 27

Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder will hit digital retail channels on Sept. 8, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc, Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 27. The movie, co-starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, will also stream on Disney+ Sept. 8.

The movie generated more than $738 million at the global box office, including $333 million in North America.

Thor: Love and Thunder finds the God of Thunder (Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced — one of self-discovery. But his efforts are interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who — to Thor’s surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Directed by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Jojo Rabbit), from a screenplay by Waititi & Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Thor: Love and Thunder was produced by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum.
