"Disney+ said Thursday that Willow
, its live-action original series based on
the 1988 fantasy film directed by Ron Howard, will premiere on November 30.
The news was revealed during a Lucasfilm panel at Star Wars Celebration, where
the series, from Lucasfilm and Imagine Entertainment, also got its first teaser
trailer, along with some first-look images (see those below).
The series, which picks up years after the events of the movie, introduces new
characters and is set in a world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls and other
mystical creatures flourish. An unlikely group of heroes set 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.
Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Amer Chadha-Patel and Tony Revolori
star alongside Warwick Davis, who is reprising his title role as Willow Ufgood,
a reluctant farmer who plays a critical role in protecting a special baby from
a tyrannical queen who vows to destroy her and take over the world.
No additional details about the series’ storyline have been released, though
according to circulated casting information for the series, it revolves around
a group on a mission to save a kidnapped prince."
