I just can’t wait to be queen!

This week: Back to childhood, when everything was love, fluff, and baby bilgesnipes for our two hero(ine)s (at least in comparison to trying to kill, maim and/or imprison each other)!

First of all, my friend Patrick painted an awesome picture of Princess Thor and Loki for me! This is the first official fan art for Thor: The Frozen World. Congrats Pat! You get free tickets to the show if it ever happens.

I am skipping BACK to song number 2 of the musical, which is set immediately following the scene in the weapons vault, when Thor and Loki are children. The song is based on ‘I just can’t wait to be king,’ which is of course from The Lion King instead of Frozen, but how can you possibly write a fake Disney musical based on the Thor franchise and not have tiny Thor and Loki singing this song? Seriously, try it. I challenge you.

Plus, tiny Loki is singing both Zazu and Nala’s parts, and the adorableness…I can’t even handle it. Patronizing authority figure meets loveable side kick? This combo 100% sums up child Loki for me.

One note on the lyrics: Since this musical is a choose-your-own-gender adventure, I had to decide on a song-by-song basis whether to develop a rhyming scheme around ‘king’ or ‘queen.’ I elected to respect the source material, so throughout this song there are places where ‘queen’ is only a near rhyme. I lost a mild amount of sleep over that, but moved on.

The complete set of Thor: The Frozen World songs can be found here.

If one or both of the songs files are not playing on your device, please let me know!

Thor
I’m gonna be a mighty queen
my enemies all slain

Loki
Plus you’d be the first to rule with only half a brain

Thor
I’m gonna be the queen who reigns/rains
like no one did before
with Mjolnir I can reach the sky
and settle every score

Loki
You know, Thor, hitting won’t solve everything

Thor
I just can’t wait to be queen!

Come on, Loki!
No one saying hit this
No one saying fight fair

Loki
No one saying no tricks

Both
No one saying stay here

Thor
Free to run around all day

Loki
Free to do it all my way!

Thor
Or my way!

Loki
Your way is usually unnecessarily violent and exceedingly boring.

Thor
And leads to less trouble!

Loki
Oh does it? And what about that time when—no, Thor, no!

Thor
Loki!

Loki
You always fall for that.

Thor
Heh, do I?

Loki
Stop it! Put me down, Thor!

Don’t you think the ruler of the nine realms should be smart?

Thor
Queens don’t need advice from little sisters for a start!

Loki
Fine! If stupid oafs like you get to be queen
then count me out!
I’ll leave Asgard, and the nine realms—

Thor
Loki, please don’t pout.
I didn’t mean to spoil anything.
It’s just— I just can’t wait to be queen!
You know we’ll do it all together

Loki
You say that now…

Thor
Whatever happens. I promise!

musical interlude

Thor
Everybody look left

Loki
Everybody look right

Thor
Everywhere you look I’m standing in the spotlight!

Loki
Not me…

All
We’ll cast a spell to make the nine realms sing
The branches of Yggdrasil’ll bloom like spring
We’re gonna be the best Asgard can bring

Thor
I just can’t wait to be queen

Loki
I just can’t wait to be queen

Both
We just can’t wait…to be queen!

Next Week: Adventures on Midgard! Thor and Jane fall in love (over a single weekend)! Darcy is…a slightly more PG 13 version of Olaf the jazzy snowman!
