In the new series “Willow” the story of the cult film from 1988 is continued. Warwick Davis, best known to younger audiences as charms teacher Filius Flitwick in the Harry Potter films, reprises his role as the eponymous magical-powered hero.

The Ron Howard film was already based on an idea by Star Wars creator George Lucas, so the new project comes from Lucasfilm, George Lucas’ production company. As a high-quality production, “Willow” joins the series of fantasy series highlights for 2022 such as “House of the Dragon” and “The Rings of Power”.

Willow on Disney+: Storyline and Cast

The story of the series adaptation of “Willow” begins about 20 years after the action of the original film. Like the film, most of the series was shot in Wales. At that time, the halfling Willow Ufgood saved the princess Elora Danan from the cruel Queen Bavmorda, who wanted to have the girl killed.

With his ally Madmartigan (Val Kilmer), he embarked on a dangerous adventure to protect the little one and developed his magical powers that will be useful to him again in the next adventure.

Two decades later, Willow is thrown back into an involuntary adventure when the son of Queen Sorsha (as in the original film: Joanne Whalley) and Madmartigan (Val Kilmer unfortunately does not return due to health reasons) has been kidnapped – and the forces of evil are gathering.

Willow will be joined by a whole new cast of characters, starting with (supposed) kitchen maid Dove (Ellie Bamber, “Les Misérables”). Also joining the cast is the kidnapped prince’s twin sister, Princess Kit (Cailee Spaeny, “Blumhouse’s Witches Club)”. Accompanying her is her bodyguard, Jade (Erin Kellyman, “Solo: A Star Wars Story”).
