Second Trailer for Warwick Davis' 'Willow' Series Coming to Disney+
"We're looking for the sorcerer Willow. I was told that once long ago you defeated the forces of evil." Another new Disney D23 trailer to enjoy - a full-length look at the new 2022 series version of Willow. This will be playing on Disney+ in November this year. The series is a continuation of the story from the beloved 1988 classic Willow, starring Warwick Davis as the dwarf hero Willow Ufgood. He's the best!! I adore the original movie so much, one of my all-time favorites. In this new series, an unlikely group of heroes sets off on a dangerous quest to places far beyond their home, where they must face their inner demons and come together to save their world. The ensemble cast features Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Ruby Cruz, Amer Chadha-Patel, and Dempsey Bryk, in addition to Davis being back. It looks like a fun adventure taking on evil, again - with, as Willow says, "my friends" which is a great line to drop in this. This looks good! A bit generic at times but I'm still looking forward to watching this when it lands this fall.
Here's the official D23 trailer (+ poster) for Disney's series Willow, direct from Lucasfilm's YouTube:
