Willow at Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration is back for the first time since the global pandemic. Lucasfilm has plenty of surprises including a teaser trailer for the live-action Willow spin-off series coming to Disney+.

The Willow spin-off series, a sequel to director Ron Howard's (Apollo 13) original 1988 movie written by George Lucas (Star Wars) and starring Warwick Davis (Star Wars: Return of the Jedi) as the titular hero, will be a great addition this holiday season. The fantasy genre continues to thrive with House of the Dragon, Shadow and Bone, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, The Witcher and more on streaming services.

In related news. Warwick Davis has been a fan-favourite staple of Star Wars Celebration since its inception for the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999. I'll always treasure his interview with the late Carrie Fisher at Star Wars Celebration Europe. They attempted to recreate Wicket the Ewok's first encounter with Princess Leia on Endor (Star Wars: Return of the Jedi), and Gary, Fisher's faithful dog, was having none of it.

Willow streams exclusively on Disney+ on 30th November.
