During the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim Lucasfilm has debuted the official teaser trailer for Willow. The beloved Warwick Davis is reprising his role as Willow Ufgood, along with new characters joining him in the adventure. Since the release of the 1988 film adaptation of the story, Disney+ will now continue this fantasy narrative as a television series.
In the film, Willow Ufgood is a simple farmer that gets his world turned upside down when he finds a baby girl in a river. He must keep her safe after a great danger attacks his people and attempts to kill her. Willow, his companions, and others he meets along the way embark on a mystical expedition unlike any other. The journey is a long dark road where they learn the secrets of the child that could determine the fate of the world.
The latest release of the TV series showcases Willow, once again, in an epic battle between good and evil. He must venture into the unknown with all-new characters in the story as an older and wiser sorcerer.
