About ‘Willow’ Season One

As a sequel to the 1988 Willow, the upcoming show will see the resurrection of several characters, including Willow Ufgood. Set in a more fashionable way than its predecessor, 2022's Willow kicks off with Willow Ufgood on a mission to save a young girl he discovered across his village, only to find himself in a different world when taking her home. 

The mission is packed with obstacles as evil forces, revealed through monsters, constantly attack the pair. On the brighter side, Willow Ufgood meets a group of close friends who help him through the journey. All in all, Willow manages to save and protect the young girl. He is also seen helping Kit find his kidnapped sibling, a case that gives him and his friends a new mission.
