Today, D23 Expo attendees could enjoy the full trailer for another long-awaited project from Lucasfilm. An all-new Disney+ Original series that will follow the story of Willow years after the original film — named Willow after the beloved character — which was released in 1988.

Willow (@WillowOfficial) shared the trailer for this original story packed with magic, fantasy, and adventure.

This November, the magic returns. Watch the new trailer for #Willow, an epic new Original series streaming only on @DisneyPlus.

Willow (2022) will see Warwick Davis and Joanne Whalley, who played Willow Ufgood and Sorsha respectively in the 1988 film, reprising their roles. Unfortunately, Val Kilmer will not reprise his role as Madmartigan, as the actor is recovering from throat cancer.

The series will have a star-studded cast, as Erin Kellyman (Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) and Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: No Way Home) collaborate with Disney once more, and are joined by Ruby Cruz, Ellie Bamber, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, and Amar Chadha-Patel.

Disney provides the following synopsis of this fantasy-adventure project.

An epic period fantasy series with a modern sensibility set in an enchanted land of breathtaking beauty, “Willow” features a diverse international cast with Jonathan Kasdan, Ron Howard, Wendy Mericle, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan serving as executive producers. The story began with an aspiring magician from a Nelwyn village and an infant girl destined to unite the realms, who together helped destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. Now, in a magical world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls, and other mystical creatures flourish, the adventure continues, as an unlikely group of heroes set off on a dangerous quest to places far beyond their home, where they must face their inner demons and come together to save their world.

You can stream Willow on November 30, 2022, only on Disney+.
