The series Disney + that will be the sequel to the classic of Ron Howard . The video is introduced by Warwick Davis , interpreter of the original film who will also return in this new adventure, and allows us to get to know the cast better.

The cast

Willow’s cast includes Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Amer Chadha-Patel and Tony Revolori . The series, developed by Jonathan Kasdan ( Solo: A Star Wars Story ), will be a sequel to the Ron Howard film and in fact Warwick Davis will reprise the role of Willow Ufgood.

Kasdan will be showrunner alongside Wendy Mericle ( Arrow ). The two will also be executive producers alongside Ron Howard and Kathleen Kennedy . Bob Dolman , screenwriter of the original film, will be supervising producer . The series is produced by Lucasfilm and Imagine Entertainment for Disney +.

The (possible) plot

Willow will be the first non- Star Wars themed projectproduced by Lucasfilm since 2015. The series will be set several years after the film and apparently centered around a mismatched new group of reluctant heroes on a mission to save, this time around, a kidnapped prince. Squad members should include Dove (Bamber), whose backstory is similar to Willow’s. Dove is a maid who discovers she is the one chosen for an important mission. Next to her there will be Kit (Cruz), twin sister princess of the kidnapped, destined to be a leader and a queen. Jade (Kellyman), a servant who is also Kit’s best friend and her moral compass, destined to become the best warrior in the kingdom. And finally a character similar to Val Kilmer’s Madmartigan, a thief and liar who joins the group to get out of prison. Who knows if this is not Revolori’s role.
