The new alternative form of the titular character, Alligator Loki, is one of the weirdest things to come out of Loki. Even the other Loki’s aren’t sure if the alligator is lying about his Loki identity. In any event, lying would bolster the allegation that he is Loki. He might be one of the show’s breakthrough characters. Loki director Kate Herron posted a photo of the alligator’s on-set stand-in on Twitter. She also refers to him as a diva and “the most demanding actor” in jest. Herron also provided some insight into the alligator’s development while chatting with Marvel.com. “We were talking about how we wanted to encounter a lot of different incarnations of Loki in this show,” Waldron said. “I simply thought there should be an Alligator Loki. And it’s as though, well, why? He’s green, that’s why. ” “It’s so dumb, but it also makes perfect sense,” Waldron said. “You almost have to take it seriously, as if he’s [a Loki]? Why shouldn’t Loki come in alligator form? That might be an alligator universe or anything. It’s the kind of snarky stuff that we play straight and have the audience take seriously in our show.” Thus, we at Animated Times thought why not let fans see some Behind-the-scenes with Alligator Loki’s stunt double. Sounds fun? If yes, then let’s hop onto the list to find out more.

1. Alligator Loki Chilling Out:
Loki utilized a blue plush stand-in for Alligator Loki before the CGI was applied, as seen in a behind-the-scenes shot, but Marvel has now unveiled more of the creature. On Disney+, Assembled: The Making Of Loki sees the character’s scenes come to life, which includes seeing the other performers interact with him. Most notably, it depicts the blue plushie participating in the combat between the Loki variations, with the stand-in being flung across the room and recovered by Tom Hiddleston’s President Loki, who subsequently fights it. The concept of Alligator Loki was strange enough (even by Loki’s standards), but the action scenes sans CGI elevated it to a whole other level. Although Alligator Loki is a lot of fun, developing the Loki variation has its own set of problems. One of Loki’s VFX Supervisors, Luke McDonald, stated: “Loki the Alligator was a really interesting character since the physics of a real alligator are not always taken into account. Things like lifting him up come to mind. Picking up an alligator is a unique experience since alligator spines only bend in one direction. ” The Loki crew collaborated with ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) to develop the VFX, and employed a real-life support alligator named Wally to help serve as the foundation for how Alligator Loki was built, as well as how he appeared and moved. Beyond the specific issue of creating an alligator that could move and be picked up in a way that fit the tale while also not being too fake, director Kate Herron stated that alligator Loki had to be “extremely attractive with lovely eyes.” Based on the reaction to Alligator Loki and the completed product as shown in the program, it’s safe to conclude that the VFX team hit the nail on the head, producing one of Loki’s most memorable supporting characters. Loki will return for season 2.
