First Look Teaser for Disney's New 'Willow' Series with Warwick Davis
"The world needs you again. It needs your magic." Disney has unveiled a first look teaser trailer for their new Willow series, finally set to debut in November in the fall this year. This is a continuation of the story from the beloved 1988 classic Willow, starring Warwick Davis as the dwarf hero Willow Ufgood. I am a HUGE fan of the original movie, and I am curious to see if this series maintains the same spirit and vibe. Not much is known about the plot, only that "a new adventure begins" and the story follows a princess going on a quest to rescue her brother. The new ensemble cast includes Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Ruby Cruz, Amer Chadha-Patel, and Dempsey Bryk, in addition to Davis being back. I'm not exactly impressed by this teaser, but I'm still hopeful this will be an entertaining series to watch anyway. And maybe it'll get some younger kids to go and watch the original again. Because it still rules! Always will.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Disney's series Willow, direct from Lucasfilm's YouTube:
