Three new episodes of Marvel Studios Legends are thundering onto Disney+. The recap series, which briefly refreshes the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its legendary heroes, will return ahead of Thor: Love and Thunder's July 8 premiere in theaters. Premiering July 7 according to a listing on Disney+ DE, the next installments of Marvel Studios Legends will revisit the stories of Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) — now wielding Mjolnir as the Mighty Thor — as they team up to stop the vengeance of Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale).
Disney+ describes the series: "As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, Marvel Studios LEGENDS celebrates and codifies what has come before.

Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he's ever faced — a search for self-discovery. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Portman), who — to Thor's surprise — inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher's vengeance and stop him before it's too late. It opens only in theaters July 8.
