Into the unknown. That’s where we must go…
The upcoming series for Disney+ is said to “take place years after the events of the original film,” with Jonathan Kasdan and Wendy Mericle serving as showrunners for “Willow.”
“The series introduces all-new characters to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters, and welcomes back its hero, Willow Ufgood, played once again by Warwick Davis.”
The cast also includes Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Ruby Cruz, Amer Chadha-Patel, Dempsey Bryk, Talisa Garcia, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, and Ralph Ineson.
Ron Howard, the original film’s director, is producing the new series.
