Serving as a continuation of a 1988 movie of the same name, Willow is an upcoming television series revolving around a group of six unlikely heroes who set off to find a missing prince while struggling against their own demons. The fantasy adventure show includes many familiar faces. However, since it is set several years after the events of the original movie, it will also contain many new characters.
Based on the Star Wars world created by George Lucas, Willow was developed for television by Jonathan Kasdan. It is heading to Disney+ on November 30, 2022, and will feature Warwick Davis in the titular role of Willow Ufgood once again.

A New Mission
When the twin brother of Princess Kit is taken away from his home, a team of heroes will set on a mission to rescue him. However, with the world being filled with sorcerers, trolls, brownies, and other fantastical creatures, the group may need to put their differences aside and present a united front.
The Team of Misfit Heroes
The group is led by Nelwyn sorcerer Willow Ufgood. However, Sorsha’s daughter Princess Kit is the one who has put it in motion. Her best friend Jade, a soon-to-be-knighted young woman, will also join the mission. Other members include a kitchen maid named Dove and a young scholar named Graydon. The sixth team member is Boorman, a swordsman who has agreed to help find the prince for the promise of freedom.
