Thirty-four years after Ron Howard and George Lucas were released Willow on the big screen, Disney Plus has rebooted the franchise for a new generation. Warwick Davis returns as farmer turned wizard Willow, along with a supporting cast of fresh faces including Ruby Cruz and Ellie Bamber. Val Kilmer (Madmartigan in the original movie) will have a role in the TV show, but is not expected to make a physical appearance.
The 1988 film saw Willow team up with a little girl to destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. In the 2022 storyline, viewers are thrown back into “a magical world where brownies, wizards, trolls, and other mystical creatures thrive,” as a group of unlikely heroes embark on a perilous quest to places far from home.
The first two episodes of Willow (2022) land on Disney Plus on November 30, 2022. The remaining six episodes will air weekly, with the series finale airing January 11, 2023.
