After the end of Loki on Disney+, the last series premiered by Marvel Studios and starring the God of Deception, his direct Kate Herron has shared not little information about the series itself, from the plot to aspects or curiosities that could go unnoticed by fans. Now, he has finally spoken about the much talked about influence of the famous Teletubbies, the mythical children’s program, in Loki. And the words de Herron couldn’t be more surprising.
The truth behind Loki’s influences
And it is that before the premiere of Loki, the director Kate Herron herself made some enigmatic statements through which she discovered several inspirations for her series, from Blade Runner a Mad Men; although he also mentioned the Teletubbies. Now, and after the end of Loki, the director herself has clarified in what sense they took inspiration from such a famous children’s program, in principle, without any possible relationship with the tone of the series.
“I haven’t talked about this yet, but the reference to the Teletubbies was episode 5. I wanted you to The vacuum it felt like a kind of covered garden, because it is like a forgotten place. Essentially, I had come up with the British countryside because it looks a lot like that, but I remember talking to ILM, who we were doing the effects with, and they said, ‘Well, what are you thinking?’ I couldn’t think, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you know what it is? It’s like the Teletubbies, it’s like the rolling hills of dystopia, and that’s what we’re going to do. ‘ But it is not sunny, it has this kind of fog. And this is how Teletubbies entered the series”, explica Kate Herron.
However, we already know exactly what he was referring to months ago with the inspiration in the colorful happy Teletubbies for a series as dark as Loki. And it is that in reality, the scene of The vacuum has certain similarities with the hills of the Teletubbies, being a dystopian and unique space, although much more depressing and dangerous in the Marvel Studios series.
