Continuing my short reviews of fantasy shows, here are some thoughts on the new Willow show on Disney+. I’m realizing that a lot of younger people might not be aware of Willow in the same way as GoT or LoTr, so is was a cult fantasy film that came out in 1988 that is super fun and feels like watching someones LotR inspired DnD campaign. You probably can watch the show without seeing the movie, but considering it is already on Disney+ and you have a week before the next ep, I recommend watching it
I’m seeing some people complain about the tone or the fact that a decent number of the cast have American accents, and that's fine, but both are constant with the movie. The film had a goofy more modern dialogue, while also being serious when it needed to, and and a good chunk of its cast (in particular Val Kilmer) just used their natural accents. Why do all people in fantasy have to speak like they are British?
The show does a good job as I said capturing the tone of the movie. Its a goofy fun romp, but they're are plenty of quiet moments where it is allowed to be serious
No surprise Warwick Davis is great back as Willow, and glad we are also getting Joanne Whalley returning as Sorsha
As for the new cast, I'm glad to say they are just as fun as the returning characters. At the moment my favs are Boorman, our Rogue, Princess Kit and Jade but I honestly love them all
Ellie Bamber as Dove/Elora Danan is also really good, and ill admit they surprised me on her, I thought Jade was going to turn out to be Elora. Really liking her interactions with Willow and being thrust into being the Chosen One TM
Effects and fight scenes are great, loved the horseback chase and the attack on the castle
Also because I know this will interest Tumblr: we have a queer princess and her knight girlfriend! Very cute
If you are looking for something light and fun after HotD or Rings of Power, this is going to be the show for you check it out
Seth Rogen Provides Small Update On Darkwing Duck Reboot
During an Interview about The Boys with the A.V Club Seth Rogen was asked about that personal touch part of what you decide to pursue alongside the projects that Point Grey has achieved, Rogen talked about future stuff that he’s proud of and what it feels to reboot some old 80s properties that he loved as a kid including Darkwing Duck.
AVC: I wanted to ask about your producing, given that you have so many projects in development. How much is that personal touch part of what you decide to pursue?
SR: Yeah, we really do try. Even The Boys, which I don’t have a ton to do with on a day-to-day basis. Like the reason that show exists is because me and Evan went to a comic book store, saw the comic, picked it up, bought it, read it, loved it. And then spent the next decade trying to make it! But it was purely borne out of, like, an afternoon we spent together, you know? And so it’s all borne out of our interests. Ninja Turtles is something I loved as a kid. We have a lot more things like that that we’re working on, this Darkwing Duck show and things like that. That becomes a fun part of the challenge: How do you infuse more and more of yourself into your work? I think the more of yourself you put in, the more people like it.

Everyone watching Willow is talking about the sapphic princess and her lady knight being in love but has no one caught Prince Graydon calling Kit a “pretty person”? I’m guessing he’s not into pretty ladies.
