That's right. Willow is back. Disney+ will host a new Willow series based on the character Willow Ufgood from the 1988 film Willow. Willow was a great fantasy movie. You had trolls, hydras, brownies, sorceresses, wizards, great swordsmen, powerful armies, an evil queen, and the greatest warrior of them all, Madmartigan (played by Val Kilmer). I have probably watched this film over thirty times.
Now, the new series begins later in Willow's life, about 30 years since the events in the movie. He is already an accomplished wizard. The Evil Queen Bavmorda is gone, banished to the Netherworld by her ruined spell and the future empress Elora Danan saved. She was to be raised by Sorsha (Bavmorda's daughter who rebelled against her mother) and Madmartigan, under the watchful eye of the sorceress Fin Raziel.
The new trailer is out for the series. It doesn't show us much in terms of Willow's old life. A woman that looks to be a queen could perhaps be Sorsha, but its not clear. Also, Sorsha's voice is the one narrating the trailer. but there is strong speculation we could see Madmartigan as well. I imagine Elora Danan as a grow woman who is preparing to take her place in the world will be featured in some way.
Here is the new trailer. The series is scheduled to air on Disney+ November 30, 2022.
