Disney+ Reveals ‘Willow’ Sequel Series Trailer & Release Date


 

After losing its first director last year, Lucasfilm’s new Disney+ series based on Willow is coming this fall. Willow is the late ’80s fantasy film directed by Ron Howard and based on a story by George Lucas. Now the first trailer shows Warwick Davis, in this eponymous role as Willow Ufgood, returning to (perhaps reluctantly) contend with a new imbalance of good and evil.

 

Willow will not be alone for his next journey, naturally. Joining Davis in Willow is a much-younger cast of adventurers, mostly women, played by Dempsey Bryk, Amar Chadha-Patel, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Ruby Cruz, and Erin Kellyman (who previously starred with Davis in Solo: A Star Wars Story). Joanne Whalley from the original Willow will reprise her role as Sorsha in the series.

 

The new Willow will be set about 20 years after the original film. It will debut on Disney+ on Nov. 30.
