Move over, “Star Wars” series: there’s another Lucasfilm property headed to Disney+ this fall. A sequel to Ron Howard‘s 1988 film “Willow” heads to the streamer right after Thanksgiving this year and sees the inimitable Warwick Davis return to the starring role.
Plot details are slim on the new series, but “Willow” follows the Nelwyn dwarf sorcerer Willow Ufgood on an all-new adventure years after Howard’s film, as a princess assembles a party on a quest to rescue her twin brother, and Willow tags along.
Alongside Davis, “Willow” also stars Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, and Ruby Cruz. Amer Chadha-Patel, Ralph Ineson, Dempsey Bryk, and Talisa Garcia also star.
Lucasfilm producer Jonathan Kasdan of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and “Indiana Jones 5” teams up with “Arrow” producer Wendy Mericle as showrunners. Jon M. Chu directs the pilot, and serves as co-executive producer with Kasdan and Mericle. Jonathan Entwistle, of Netflix‘s “I Am Not Okay With This,” directs the rest of the series.
“Willow” is a lesser-known Lucasfilm fantasy but still a beloved one. Catch its return when the new series hits Disney+ on November 30. Watch the teaser below.
