Last Saturday, Disney+ unveiled the first full trailer for its Willow sequel, in which Warwick Davis wields a flamethrower as titular character Willow Ufgood.

The 52-year-old Englishman was just 17 when he landed the lead role of Nelwyn’s dwarf sorcerer’s apprentice, and his character has clearly grown tougher in the sequel set 20 years later.

The two-minute preview begins with a band of people from Nockmaar Castle traveling to the town of Nelwyn to find Willow.

As soon as Willow sees Princess Kit (Ruby Cruz), who needs to rescue her kidnapped twin brother, she says, “You remind me of your mother.”

Kit’s mother, it turns out, is Queen Sorsha (Joanne Whalley), who later tells Willow, “My dear friend, I thought I could prevent all this.” I was wrong.’

Willow and her company then reunite with diminutive brownies Franjean (Rick Overton) and Rool (Kevin Pollak), who served as comic relief in the first film.

‘Like old times. Attack! Run! Horses! Violence!’ Rool exclaims.

On Sunday, ’90s heartthrob Christian Slater appeared with Warwick at the D23 Expo in Anaheim to announce that he would be playing a mysterious Indiana Jones-type character in Willow.

‘Well, there are elements of [Indiana Jones]’ the 53-year-old Golden Globe winner joked to Extra TV.

“I just did the ADR and I was really excited to see it because the temp music they used was from the Raiders. [of the Lost Ark]. So it was really fun for me to see my character running around to that music. Enjoy it.

As for Val Kilmer, who played the mercenary swordsman Madmartigan, he may not appear in the first season of Willow, but he’s still “a big part of it.”

“The first conversation I had, when Warwick and I got the green light to do this, was with Val,” co-showrunner Jonathan Kasdan told Yahoo Entertainment in May.

‘Cause we were filming during [the COVID-19 lockdowns], couldn’t come to Wales and shoot with us. But he is in the show in a big way. And we’re very excited about that…Madmartigan is still alive!’

The 62-year-old Grammy nominee’s vocal cords were damaged during the two tracheotomies he underwent for his battle with throat cancer.

The original 1988 Ron Howard film, which was heavily inspired by The Lord of the Rings, racked up $137.6 million at the worldwide box office despite negative reviews.
