During the second day of D23 Expo 2022, we got another look at the highly anticipated Disney Plus series Willow, which continues the original 1988 film of the same name. We’ve had glimpses here and there over the last few months, and while this new trailer doesn’t give us too many spoilers, it does help to ignite the excitement as we head into the final months before its release. Jonathan Kasdan and Wendy Mericle will serve as co-showrunners on the series, with creator Jonathan Entwistle directing the pilot.

During the event, Warwick Davis and fellow castmates talked about the new trailer and the series. Most notably, Christian Slater was among them and shared what it was like on set and being a part of the cast. The trailer focuses on giving us a look at the newcomers, Ellie Bamber, Erin Kellyman, Tony Revolori and Cailee Spaeny to the franchise. Our new heroes seek out Willow to help save the world once more.

The Willow trailer helps to reintroduce us to the magic of this world and just how beautiful a fantasy series can be. We are thankful that Disney and LucasFilm chose to use this series as a continuation of the franchise rather than a reboot. Fans of the original film will have a lot to enjoy as we watch an older Davis return to one of our favorite roles, and new fans will learn why this film quickly became a cult classic. And knowing the Slater has officially returned is just the icing on the cake.

Willow is set to kick off on November 30, 2022. We’ve shared the new trailer and poster down below. What are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
