    It looks nice! The Trolls wearing armor is a cool update to their design (like small, evil Wookies), and I’m glad to see Joanne Whalley will be back. Will General Kael’s iconic helmet be worn by a new baddie or is that just a tease? Also could Cherlindrea’s wand turning up again mean Queen Bavmorda returns since she took it with her to the Nether World? I like Willow's new wizard look (glowy staff!), however, that shot of the fake giant fish greeting MCU Flash Thompson in front of the artificial sunset registered more like Princess Bride than Willow.

    Glad they reused James Horner's original theme again, but that slow piano-key treatment is the same as was used for Avatar and before that Star Wars...it's becoming a trend like Hans Zimmer trailer booms.

    Actually looks like it could be fun although when I hear Warwick’s voice I keep hearing him asking for the top ten tenable answers

    its the 3 books book series that was written by George Lucas and Chris Claremont

    I absolutely LOVE Joanne Whalley as Sorsha, I would love to see her again. It would have been awesome to see Val Kilmer as Madmartigan again, but I guess that won't be happening.

    I have heard that Val is not in the best of health these days, which is why he ended up gaining so much weight. His rare appearances these days may have to do with that more than vanity.

    I know Val has not been in the best of health, I hope he gets well, he's a fabulous actor and a wonderful person.

    I remember years ago, I wrote an article for Val and helped get his Christmas song on the radio, both of which he liked so he sent me a free copy of his music CD, and he said I was "unstoppable" in my passion for positive writing. That was before I got sick so I hate to disappoint Val, but it's been a struggle trying to live up to his assessment of me, and I can hope that I can be that unstoppable person again one day.

    Apparently Val Kilmer will be involved with the Willow series as Madmartigan at least in a limited capacity!

    I suppose it's too much to hope for a Black Series treatment for Willow from Hasbro now too.

    I'll definitely give it a watch. I watched Willow about a year ago for the first time in many years and was surprised by how much it has held up over the years. Great classic movie.

    It will be different to see Willow as the venerable sorcerer he always wanted to be in the first movie. A Willow that knows what he is doing should make the bad guys take pause.

    I stumbled upon a full rack of the Willow ReAction figures at Disney's Magic Kingdom a couple of days ago and couldn't believe my eyes, it was an instant purchase! I also saw a General Kael shirt in Disney's Hollywood Studios under another rack of the Willow figures as well.

    I really hope that Super7 makes Willow Ultimates, that would be a dream come true!

    Sorsha was always my favourite character in Willow and I am delighted that Joanne Whalley is reprising her role.

    An Ultimates! Mad Martigan would be incredible... as would Willow and Kael.

    I was always surprised that McFarlane nor Neca ever optioned these for part of their Movie / Reel Toys lines...

    I would collect Willow Ultimates by Super7. I have wanted figures of Bavmorda and Cherlindrea since I was a kid.

    I saw the previews for Willow and Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power and they both look amazing and awesome.

    I'm eager to see this. I watched the old movie a year or so ago and was surprised by how well it has held up over time.

    If anyone is into the Super7 reaction figures, they are up on shopdisney. I was able to use their 20% off code and free shipping code. Got general Kael and madmartigan for $16 apiece shipped.

    Thank you for this!! I loved the movie and have been waiting for proper toys. I tracked down some of the original figures, and they're more like D&D miniatures.
