An over confident teen with a magical weapon and a handful of imperfect gods join forces against an evil queen and her army of giants.
Animation has changed so much over the years and here is one that brings Thor's story to life. Thor is the son of the mythical god Odin and a Viking mother. But Thor does not have any powers until he comes across a talking magical hammer. He has to learn how to use it so he can save his village along with his father from the evil ice queen and the giants.
The tale is a comical version of the mythical story. It reveals that the real magic is human compassion and feelings along with helping your friends and neighbors. "Thor: Legend of the Magical Hammer" is a colorful animated tale that is aimed at family viewing but due to some content that may be offensive for some, We recommend it for ages 12 and over.
We award this DVD the Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus.
