The time has finally come at the end of November. After almost 34 years, at least the subscribers of Disney+ look forward to the sequel to a special film classic from the 80s.
The streaming service provider Disney+ recently released the first trailer. Unlike the cult film, the story is told in the form of a series. Starring is a familiar face from the Harry Potter film series.
Disney+ to produce sequel to classic film Willow
The plot of the new series is strongly reminiscent of the classic film “Willow”. In the new edition, too, the dwarf of the same name, played by Warwick Davis, has to face new adventures. When the prince of the kingdom suddenly disappears without a trace, she sets Willow in search of him. On his exciting journey he has to prove his courage and meets various opponents and adversaries.
When filling the new series, the makers rely on familiar faces. The actor in the lead role in particular triggers nostalgic feelings in many fans.

Disney+ is bringing back Harry Potter star Warwick Davis
