Episode 1: The Birth of the Universe
Norse mythology is a very rich universe, deeply ingrained in the traditions and customs of the Middle Age Scandinavian peoples. Gods and men walk alongside giants, elves, dwarfs and all manners of magical creatures. This world was created by the powerful Odin and his brothers from the body of a giant. The start of mythical and breathtaking adventure.
Episode 2: Nine Vast and Rich Realms
Odin created Asgard, the kingdom of the gods, but that doesn’t mean he’s resting on his laurels. The father of all things watches over the nine realms, placed in a delicate balance atop the world tree Yggdrasil. These realms are full of mythical creatures, some peaceful, others less so. So, the gods of Asgard must soon face their first conflict.
Episode 3: Exploits of the Gods
Nestled in their kingdom of Asgard, the Norse gods watch over Midgard, the realm of men. There are numerous threats coming from the nine realms, starting with the giants whose taunts and provocations become more and more frequent. Fortunately, men and gods can count on Odin and his powerful son Thor to repel the attacks. And when the god of thunder brandishes his hammer Mjölnir, it’s usually the start of a great adventure.
Episode 4: Loki, the Fun God turned Murderous Pariah
In Norse mythology, Loki has a place of his own. Taken into Asgard as an infant, he grew under the protection of Odin. Rival and friend of Thor, he prefers illusions to sheer force. His magical talents are very useful in Asgard. Little by little, however, Loki turns evil and his tricks do not amuse anyone anymore. In the end, the god ofdiscord will turn against the other gods fighting Ragnarök.
Episode 5: Ragnarök, Twilight of the Gods
After spending a lifetime battling giants and feasting plentifully between adventures, the gods of Asgard must now face their doom. Ragnarök, Twilight of the Gods, is looming... Across the nine realms, natural catastrophes are striking everywhere and the final battle against the giants is drawing ever closer. The time has finally come for Odin, Thor and the other Æsir to don their armour and face their destiny.
