The plot of the original picture takes viewers to a fairy-tale world where an evil queen has ascended the throne, who dreams to enslave and destroy the entire population. An ancient legend says that a child will be born in the witch’s citadel, destined to overthrow her from the throne and restore balance. Upon learning of the baby’s birth among the attendants living in the dungeons, the queen sends guards to kill it, but the midwife, realizing the danger, sends the infant in a basket down the river at the last moment, hoping for the slightest chance of salvation. The basket arrives in a village of lowborn people, where novice magician Willow lives, who takes on the care of the baby in hopes of raising it and saving the country. The sequel’s release date is November 30, 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The upcoming series will continue the story of the magician’s adventures. More than 20 years have passed since the events of the film. A young princess learns that her brother is in trouble and needs help. She assembles a detachment to go on a journey to save the boy. It consists directly of the princess, her friend who aspires to become a knight, a thief who is offered freedom in exchange for help, the beloved of the missing prince, a cook, and an experienced female knight. The company is accompanied by the magician Willow, who is no stranger to dubious adventures. Willow’s series release date is November 30, 2022.
The role of the magician was played by Warwick Davis, who participated in the filming of the first part of the story. His scene partners were Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, and Ellie Bamber. The novelty from Lucasfilm is among the most anticipated projects of the years, but it has already earned some criticism for the fact that almost all of the key characters are women, which according to loyal fans of the original story was done to please feminists. However, the trailer presented for the series promises a colorful and ambitious show whose release date is November 30, 2022.
