Disney+ will be the streaming platform where we can enjoy the continuation of Willow, that 1988 movie starring Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Jean Marsh y Billy Barty. The plot of the film tells how a dwarf and a warrior protect a baby from the evil queen Bavmorda who fears the prophecy that indicates how the arrival of a girl will end her reign of terror. The original story was conceived by the same restless mind that I believe Star Wars: George Lucas.
The series will serve as a sequel to the story of the dwarf farmer with magical powers and will be located 7 years after the original adventure. New feats are expected in the same fantastic world inhabited by monsters, fairies, mythological beings and noble warriors. Surely Warwick Davis he will be rejuvenated by some VFX technique to hide his true age.
