This November, Disney is releasing a brand new series that is a sequel to the classic 1988 film, “Willow”, and just ahead of the release of the new Disney+ series, the original film has been given an upgrade, with a 4K Ultra HD version with Dolby Vision and HDR10 audio.  The film has also been given a new Lucasfilm opening.

In the original film, a young Willow Ufgood finds an abandoned baby girl, where he learns she is destined to end the reign of the wicked Queen Bavmorda. To protect the child, Willow must team up with a rogue swordsman and overcome the forces of darkness in the ultimate battle of good versus evil.

“Willow” stars Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, and Warwick Davis.  It was directed by Ron Howard.

The new “Willow” series will arrive on Disney+ on November 30th 2022, and is 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.
