The director of Loki, Kate Herron, explained how the children’s TV series inspired the Marvel show Loki. Episode 5, in particular, drew some parallels between the kindergarten favorite and The Void in Loki. Herron spoke to For All Nerds TV about that nod and how thrilled she was that the cast decided to go with it.
“Haven’t talked about it yet, but Teletubbies reference – it was episode 5”has shared Kate Herron. “I wanted The Void to feel like some sort of overgrown garden because it’s like this forgotten place. Basically, I had pitched the UK campaign because it looks a lot like that, but I remember talking to ILM, who were doing the effects with, and they were like, ‘Well, what are you thinking?’ I couldn’t think, and I was like, “Oh my god, you know what this is? It’s like the Teletubbies, it’s like rolling hills of dystopia, and that’s what we’re looking for. But there’s no sun, there’s this kind of haze. And that’s how the Teletubbies got into the show.”
