TVLine Items: Willow Teaser, L&O: OC Names New Showrunner and More

Disney+ is heading back to the world of Willow — and now we have our first look.

The streamer unveiled a teaser trailer for its Willow series, based on the 1988 fantasy film and with star Warwick Davis returning as the title character, at Thursday’s Star Wars Celebration 2022 event. We have a date, too: Willow will debut on Disney+ on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

In the teaser — which you can watch above — we see lots of swordplay, wizardry and strange creatures as a female archer calls Willow back into duty: “The world needs you again. It needs your magic.” He joins a band of young heroes as they set off to battle evil: “Into the unknown… that’s where we must go.”
