“Willow: Behind the Magic” Doco Premieres January 25 on Disney+



Willow: Behind the Magic

Disney+ has scheduled the release of an original documentary special “Willow: Behind the Magic” for January 25, 2023, about the making of Lucasfilm’s brand-new action-adventure series based on George Lucas’ fantasy-adventure picture.

The documentary gives an inside look at the development of the smash Disney+ original series, which premiered on the service on November 30, 2022, and features interviews with series’ breakout stars and returning legends.

The story of “Willow” began when an aspiring sorcerer, played by Warwick Davis, is whisked away on a journey to protect an infant empress Elora Danan and vanquish the evil Queen Bavmorda from their world of Andowyne.

Now, the story continues with Davis reprising his titular role as he leads an unlikely crew of heroes – which includes a now-grown Elora, who has just learned of her prodigious birthright – on a quest to protect Andowyne from an even larger foe than they had imagined possible.

“Willow” also stars Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Tony Revolori, Amar Chadha-Patel, Dempsey Bryk, and Joanne Whalley. Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Jonathan Kasdan, Tommy Harper, Wendy Mericle, Roopesh Parekh, Ron Howard, and Samie Kim Falvey serve as executive producers. The writers are John Bickerstaff, Hannah Friedman, and Jonathan Kasdan. The producers are Stephen Woolfenden, Julia Cooperman, Hameed Shaukat, and Max Taylor.
