In what Thor: Love and Thunder will be different from Thor: Ragnarok?

Appearance that we have enjoyed recently also in Doctor Strange of the Multiverse of Madness.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be different from Thor: Ragnarok? Taika Waititi’s answer
Already with Thor: Ragnarok, Waititi had hit Thor’s heart hard, causing him to witness the end of his world, Asgard, and the death of his father. A chapter of the MCU that not only showed a different use of Marvel Humor, but that, in the economy of the franchise, was an essential element in the emotional definition of Thor. Awaited now with his second Thunder God film, Waiti wanted to explain to Entertainment Weekly how Thor: Love and Thunder will differ from Thor: Ragnarok:
“Ragnarok was like a party, he was definitely a party guy. Even with this new film you have fun, and it has some really hilarious moments, but in terms of themes it is much more profound than the previous film. It’s not a serious movie, nor a dramatic one, but we’re talking about ideas that I think we normally deal with, universal themes like love, loss and our place in the universe. Everyone asks this question in the film: What is the purpose? What does it mean to be a hero, and what should I do with these powers? It’s kind of a midlife crisis, where everyone is asking: Am I doing the right thing and am I really doing what I can for the world? I think now the planet is still recovering from the pandemic, that’s a great question to ask. As if we were asking if we are doing enough to take care of each other “
