The launch of the Disney+ Willow series took place in London yesterday. Screeners for the first three films were subject to a stricter social media blackout because of this.
The cast of #Willow gathered in London yesterday for a special screening of the first two episodes.

Many of these comments were from people who saw a watermarked version of the film on their computers or mobile devices at home, rather than during a special screening. Nevertheless, everyone is relieved to see Warwick Davis’ Willow Ufgood again after twenty years; he played the mythical hero in the 1988 film Willow.
“Willow,” a sequel to the 1980s film, is a highly anticipated winter series. Eight episodes are planned.
Had the chance to watch the first 3 episodes of #Willow and…well, I don't know. I love the characters and it's clear the actors are having a blast with genuine chemistry between them all. Dug the humor and interactions, but the story feels like one fantasy trope after another. pic.twitter.com/Oz7Rsh2FRy

“Willow” is a modern period fantasy series produced by Jonathan Kasdan, Ron Howard, Wendy Mericle, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan. The cast is worldwide.
A young magician and a newborn daughter must unify the kingdoms by defeating a terrible queen and driving forth darkness. An unlikeable band of adventurers begins a risky voyage to faraway regions in a fantasy world filled with brownies, sorcerers, trolls, and other mythical creatures. They must face their own demons and work together to save their world.
Lucky to see episodes 1-3 of @WillowOfficial and it’s fantastic. It’s overwhelmingly charming and funny. @JonKasdan sets up a thrilling adventure with characters that are real and relatable,while honoring the magic of the original #Willow film. Can’t wait for what comes next! 🤩 pic.twitter.com/JcdomYjtiZ

It's a charming adventure, with some interesting characters & is certainly not a show to be overlooked. "Willow" is a must-watch. 1st Ep on Nov 30th pic.twitter.com/HvvtmGZamg
