One of this winter’s biggest new series on Disney+ is “Willow”, which is a new eight-episode that is a sequel to the classic 1980s film of the same name.

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.

Today, following a special screening event in London, the social media embargo has lifted, which means a number of critics can share their early thoughts on the series. I also have seen the first three episodes from the show, and here’s my social media reaction to it.

And here are some reactions from other critics:

The first episode of “Willow” is coming to Disney+ on Wednesday 30th November 2022 and new episodes will be released weekly.
