Updated- Willow Official Trailer is Released.
An official trailer of the series has not been released on any video streaming platforms yet. However, a casual video where Warwick Davis introduces the cast of the series hilariously has been uploaded on IMDb. Davis asks funny questions one by one to all the people about to star in the series.
While introducing Dempsey Bryk, he asks about his first name even after being told by the actor. Still, Bryk explains to him again. He asks Amar about the movie ‘Willow’ to which he pretends to be unaware. Then, after mentioning the director, he says that he remembered. While coming to Ellie Bamber, she says that she wasn’t born when the movie was released.
Davis makes fun of Tony by asking him whether he is into TikTok and insta stories, to which Tony answers as yes in a sarcastic way. At last, he concludes by saying that this was the young cast, and the title of the series is mentioned in the end.
The series would be shown to be continued after 30 years of the incidents that happened in the Willow movie. Much of the plot and the storyline have not been revealed by the official sources yet.
However, the speculations are being made as the film showed that Willow got the magic book that helped him complete his journey of being a sorcerer. Hence, fans may see the character of Willow being a sorcerer and more mature than in the movie.
It has been said that many new characters, including an enchanted fairy realm’s queen along with Eborsisk monsters who’ll be having two heads, are added to the series to make it more exciting and entertaining.
Another speculation involves now Willow saving an enlisting prince from the evil people trying to harm him. Verifying this information is still going on, and the original facts are being awaited.
It is known that Willow’s release date and the facts are still not made public either by the production team or the investors of the series. There is a possibility that the series hasn’t completed on the filming part yet due to issues with the director. However, there may be some halt for the time being in the release of the series.
