Product description

Product Description

From legendary filmmakers George Lucas and Ron Howard comes one of the most beloved fantasy tales of all time. This ground breaking film features stunning special effects, dazzling action and a classic battle between good and evil. When young Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) finds an abandoned baby, he is suddenly thrust into an adventure filled with magic and danger. According to an ancient prophecy, the sacred child is destined to end the reign of the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda (Jean Marsh). Now, with only a single swordsman (Val Kilmer) at his side, Willow must overcome the forces of darkness that threaten to destroy anyone who stands in the Queen’s way!

Special Features:

  • Deleted Scenes with Ron Howard
  • The Making of an Adventure with Ron Howard
  • From Morf To Morphing with Dennis Muren
  • Willow: An Unlikely Hero--Personal Video Diary of Warwick Davis
  • Matte Paintings
  • From Amazon.co.uk

    Billed as a fantasy to please kids and adults alike in 1988, Willow was revolutionary in its day. Not only did it have a vertically challenged actor (Warwick Davis) as its leading man, it also set new standards for special effects, using the first known "morfing" (sic) systems. To top it all off it combined the talents of two of Hollywood's biggest names, director Ron Howard and writer-producer George Lucas, and changed Val Kilmer's destiny, influencing both his career and love life. In theory all this should have added up to a rip-roaring success of a film.

    Alas, the end result has been unkindly if accurately described as the bastard son of Lord of the Rings, with Star Wars as its doting mother. The plot line (plucky young man sent off on a quest to protect something which could change the reign of evil) has obvious links to Tolkien's classic; Kilmer's Madmartigan (the diamond in the rough) has distinct similarities to Hans Solo. And with the great advances in modern cinemas special effects, Willow's ferocious two-headed dragons now look like something out of 1963's Jason and the Argonauts. However, even though it marked the end of the road for fantasy films in the 1980s, Willow's combination of locations, set design and groundbreaking SFX set new standards and influenced much modern cinema, including Peter Jackson's epic Lord of the Rings. All in all, this is a movie with its heart, soul and magic in the right place.

    On the DVD: Willow is brought up to date on DVD with this excellent special effects enhancing anamorphic transfer of the original 2.35:1 screen ratio; the Dolby 5.1 surround sound boosts the power behind Badmorda's roar as well as spotlighting James Horner's swashbuckling score. A lively commentary is offered by Warwick Davis, although he has a tendency to dwell on his own musings rather than the film as a whole. Other features include "The Making of the Adventure", which is a standard TV behind-the-scenes documentary/advert and a wealth of TV spots, trailers and photos. By far the most interesting feature is the "Morf to Morphing: The Dawn of Digital Film" documentary including interviews with George Lucas, Ron Howard and Dennis Muren (the renowned special effects guru) on the creation of morphing and its influence on later movies. –-Nikki Disney --This text refers to the DVD edition.

The film follows a well trodden and familiar theme.
The wicked Queen learns of a child to be born that will lead to
her downfall.
'Queen Baymorda' orders the killing of all new-born's in her Kingdom.
the mother parts with her child fearing for it's life and hoping for
a safe place to be found.
wild creatures close in on the guardian and child, the child is placed
in a basket to float down river in the hope of being found
the basket is found by dwarf 'Willow Upgood's' children, at first 'Willow'
doesn't want anything to do with the find, however 'Willow's' wife warms
to the child,he to finds himself doing so as well.
they realize that keeping the saught after child 'Elenor' would put both
them and fellow villager's in danger.
A fairy queen appears to 'Willow' giving him a task to find safety for the child,he is also given
a wand and is instructed to find sorceress 'Fin Raziel' to give the wand to.
he sets out with a couple of volunteers from his village, along the way they are joined
by a couple of 'brownies' who are truly ''little'' people,they also come across thief
and accomplished swordsman 'Madmatigan' caged up on the side of the road who if
but reluctantly will join the quest, 'willow's' fellow villagers return home leaving
'Willow' and his new found companions to continue the journey.
great danger lies ahead as the queens daughter and henchmen continue the search for
'Elenor'
with magic and mythical beasts this is a good family friendly romp for all to enjoy.

Got for my daughter as she really has been enjoying the films I watched growing up. Remember willow as being a good story so even though just looking at the cover she was reluctant to watch it she did intact thoroughly enjoy it once it was on and was completely engrossed with it

I am an avid fan of the fantasy genre.
Willow is (like other reviewer's have said) like a pre-LOTR, but not to the point of being a "rip off".
Yes the acting is a tad sketchy (mainly from the Elwyn's), but it is wonderful movie with a great story.

if you like the the age of nights and bad's you can sit back and enjoy this film. It does get a bit slow at times but effects make up for it.
