Willow Cast: Who will be going to feature in this upcoming series, Willow?
After the events of the original “Willow,” the new series takes place years away. Introducing new characters, it welcomes its famous hero, Willow Ufgood, performed by the unbeatable Warwick Davis once again, into the enchanting realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters. The following series, followed by the 1988 fantasy film, with the film’s star Warwick Davis taking back his title role. Moreover, Ruby Cruz of Castle Rock landed in Willow as the main actress of the series. After an extensive recasting process, she replaced Cailee Spaeny, who was originally taken to serve. In the role of the great wizard, Willow Ufgood, Warwick Davis will return. Ellie Bamber, Erin Kelly, and Cailee Spaeny will also be featured in the series.
Willow Trailer: Is there any trailer out for the series?
However, no official trailer of Willow was released by Disney Plus, and we know that the series will not be a straightforward remake of the movie. The series will take thirty years after the events and introduce new characters to the world, created for the first time in 1988, instead of replicating the original story. You can thus watch the original film trailer to get a good summary of the story here.
Willow Storyline: What is Willow’s story all about?
The films focused on Davis’ Willow, who reluctantly obliged a special kid named Elora Danan to play a crucial role in protecting a bad queen (Jean Marsh). A prophecy said Elora is going to bring down the queen. A mercenary swordsman, Val Kilmer, helped Willow along the way.
The story of the brave heroes in the least probable places allows us to believe in our will, determination, and, of course, inner magic as an Asian-American child grows up at a Chinese restaurant that wants to go to Hollywood. So it was bigger than a dream for the maker to start with Kathleen Kennedy and Ron Howard. To this timeless story, Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle have added such innovative characters and delighting surprises that no one can’t wait for the sequel and are overexcited to come on this epic trip.”
However, no further information was published on the series’ storyline. The series rotates around a group to rescue an enlisted prince based on circulated casting information. The team is made up of Dove (Bamber), an unsuspected kitchen servant who shows that she is the “selected person” on the journey. The princess whose two brothers were abducted is joined by Kit (Cruz), the princess. The whole story took an amazing turn when Kit is meant to be a leader and the queen, ultimately.
