The new series sees Willow Ufgood (Davis) teaming up with these young adventures on a new quest of magic and self-discovery when an “unassuming kitchen maid,” to be played by Ellie Bamber, proves she is the “chosen one.” The cast includes Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Tony Revolori, and Amer Chadha-Patel. Also along for the ride, new hire Dempsey Bryk, whose addition to the team was revealed in the video.
Jonathan Kasdan and Arrow‘s Wendy Mericle serve as showrunners with original Willow feature film director Ron Howard on board as another executive producer.
Willow is set for release in 2022 on Disney+.
