Special look at Disney+’s Willow teases new fantasy adventure

In 1988, the world was introduced to an aspiring sorcerer and  named Willow, played by Warwick Davis. The fantasy-adventure film Willow revolved around the titular character’s quest to protect a special baby, Elora Danan, who would one day unite the realms against the evil queen Bavmorda. Over 30 years later, the Nelwyn sorcerer is back for a new adventure in the Disney+ original series Willow.

In a special look at the series, Willow receives a new mission to find the twin brother of Princess Kit (Ruby Cruz). Willow leads a disparate group of people to find Kit’s brother and protect the world of Andowyne from impending doom. Along the way, they will also attempt to find Elora, whose identity was hidden in order to protect her from danger.

Davis reprises his role as Willow, the character he made famous in the original film. Joanne Whalley returns from the film as Sorsha, the warrior daughter of the evil Queen Bavmorda. Also reprising their roles from the film are Kevin Pollock and Rick Overton, who played the comedic duo of Rool and Franjean, respectively. New additions to the series include Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Amar Chadha-Patel, Dempsey Bryk, Ralph Ineson, Christian Slater, and Warwick Davis’ daughter, Annabelle Davis.

The series stems from Jonathan Kasdan, who co-wrote Solo: A Star Wars Story. Ron Howard, who directed the film adaptation of the character, and George Lucas, who wrote the film’s story, will produce the Disney+ series via their respective production companies, Imagine Entertainment and Lucasfilm.

Best new movies coming to theaters in 2024
Tom Hardy and Austin Butler in The Bikeriders.

It seems that Hollywood was too quick to crown Bad Boys: Ride or Die as the savior of the summer box office. Because Pixar's Inside Out 2 blew away all box office projections with a $154 million opening last weekend. That's not too far behind Barbie's $162 million opening from last year. Inside Out 2 probably won't have the legs that Barbie did at the box office, but it's well on its way to being one of the biggest hits of the year. A $500 million domestic finish for Inside Out 2 is not an unreasonable estimate when the film finally leaves theaters.

In the short run, this week's new addition, The Bikeriders, has no shot at overtaking Inside Out 2. None. This battle was over before the first motorcycle started. Unfortunately for The Bikeriders, it's unlikely to take No. 2 either, since Bad Boys: Ride or Die proved to be good counterprograming for Inside Out 2 last weekend. That's likely going to mean a third place finish for The Bikeriders at best.
