The Ron Howard and George Lucas team that brought us Willow weren’t any sort of slouches when they created this rich fantasy world. Now, lead Warwick Davis is back as Willow and he has brought a new cast with him. The all-new series will premiere on Disney+.
In the video that Disney+ Tweeted, we get a look at Davis in really good spirits. Plus, we get a look at at the new cast.
The synopsis for the Willow film went like this:
Enter the world of “Willow.” Journey to the far corners of your imagination, to a land of myth and magic, where dream and reality live side by side … to a place that never existed, a time that never was. It is a world where a young man named Willow lives out an adventure that explodes beyond the boundaries of his own hopes and fears.

The fun little cast tease feels a lot like one of Ricky Gervias’ Life’s Too Short episodes. It has a lot of Davis poking fun at himself and his cast members.
This makes me really curious about which characters from the film might make a return for the series. It would be great to see Pat Roach or Val Kilmer make an appearance or two.
We will see what Disney+ has up their sleeves with Willow when it premieres in 2022.
