"Thor: Love and Thunder" director Taika Waititi, who also lent his voice to Korg's character in the highly anticipated movie, has opened up about its theme and how it is different from its prequel.

The director admitted that "Thor: Ragnarok" was more like a "party" but the new installment will be "a bit deeper" and it will have "over the top" moments.

"Ragnarok felt a bit like a party. It was quite festive," Waititi told EW in an interview published Tuesday. "This one is still fun, and it's got moments of being over the top, but thematically, it's about something a bit deeper than the last film."

However, Waititi clarified that it is not going to be a "serious film" nor a "drama," but will deal with ideas that humans often come across in their day-to-day life.

"Universal themes about love and loss and our place in the world. Everyone sort of asks this question in the film: What is your purpose? What is the reason that you're a hero, and what do you do when you have these powers? It's sort of like a midlife crisis film, really," he said.

Waititi explained how common these questions have become, especially when the world is healing from the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"That's the question we ask everyone: Are we doing the right thing, and are we doing all we can in the world? I think right now, while the world is still healing from this pandemic, it's a good question to ask," he added. "It's like, well, are we doing enough to look after each other and to look after ourselves?"

"Thor: Love & Thunder" is one of the most sought-after Marvel movies and it is set for release on July 8. It is the sequel to the 2017 film "Thor: Ragnarok."

Actress Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie, had previously spoken about the movie's storyline.

"[Valkyrie's character] She is the king of New Asgard, so she's navigating her diplomatic duties, she's reunited with her friend Thor and we've got the gang back together," she said.

Chris Hemsworth shared the first teaser on Instagram last month.

The movie also stars Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Matt Damon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt and many others.
