The first trailer for Willow, the upcoming Disney+ fantasy series, has been shown at Star Wars Celebration 2022.
The Disney+ series is being produced by Ron Howard and will once again feature Warwick Davies as Willow Ufgood, a Nelwyn dwarf and sorcerer. During last year’s Disney Plus Day it was confirmed that Willow would debut this November, so there’s not long to wait.
The upcoming sequel is set 20 years after the original 1988 film Willow that it’s based on. In the original story, an aspiring magician and an infant girl destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. Now, the new series will focus on three new heroines who leave their kingdoms in search of the famous sorcerer, Willow.
Warwick Davis returns as the titular Willow, and Joanne Whalley will reprise her role as Sorsha. Joining them are newcomers Ruby Cruz, who plays Kit Sorsha, Erin Kellyman, who plays Jade – Kit’s best friend who grew up as an orphan in the castle and is trying to become a knight, and Ellie Bamber who plays Dove – a kitchen maid in love with Kit’s brother. Additionally, Warwick Davis’ real-life daughter Annabelle will star as Willow’s daughter.
Willow will be executive produced by Jonathan Kasdan, Ron Howard, Wendy Mericle, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan.
Willow will head to Disney+ on November 30, 2022. In the meantime, there’s plenty more news for upcoming shows out of Star Wars Celebration, including new info on Star Wars: Skeleton Crew next year and a new trailer for Andor, which is coming in August.
