Star Wars Celebration begins today in Anaheim and during the first “Lucasfilm’s Studio Showcase” panel it was announced that the upcoming Disney+ Original series “Willow” will begin streaming on Disney+ on November 30.
An epic period fantasy series with a modern sensibility set in an enchanted land of breathtaking beauty, “Willow” features a diverse international cast with Jonathan Kasdan, Ron Howard, Wendy Mericle, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan serving as executive producers. The story began with an aspiring magician from a Nelwyn village and an infant girl destined to unite the realms, who together helped destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. Now, in a magical world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls, and other mystical creatures flourish, the adventure continues, as 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.
Warwick Davis will return in the role of the great sorcerer, Willow Ufgood. Amer Chadha-Patel (Aladdin), Ruby Cruz (Mare of Easttown), Erin Kellyman (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Solo: A Star Wars Story), Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals), Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: Legacy) and Talisa Garcia (Baptiste) are all set to star alongside Davis.
