Willow is a fantasy adventure series based on the 1988 film of the same name. It takes place years after the events of the original movie and follows Willow Ufgood, a Nelwyn dwarf and aspiring magician, as he embarks on a quest to protect a special infant named Elora Danan from the forces of evil.

The series begins with Willow living a quiet life in the Nelwyn village, having given up his dreams of becoming a great sorcerer. That all changes when an unexpected visitor arrives, pleading for Willow's help to track down Elora, who has now grown into a headstrong young woman unaware of her magical origins. Reluctantly, Willow agrees to the quest, teaming up with an unlikely crew of allies including Jade, a witty servant on the run, Boorman, a swaggering swordsman, and Dove, an earnest, would-be knight.

Together, they must navigate dangerous lands filled with shape-shifting criminals, sinister sorcerers, and bloodthirsty creatures. All the while, they are pursued by evil forces who seek to use Elora's powers for their own nefarious purposes, including the mysterious Crone and the wicked Sorsha who has a connection to Willow's past.

Along the way, Willow rediscovers his courage and confidence as a hero, overcoming self-doubt and skepticism to embrace the magic within himself. He also finds an unlikely friend in Greydon, an embittered knight who has lost his way, as they bond over their shared mission to protect Elora.

Blending humor, heart, and imaginative world-building, Willow recaptures the spirit of adventure of the original film while expanding its fantasy mythology. The series balances lighthearted moments with resonant themes about finding one's inner strength and living up to one's potential.

Visually, it transports viewers to a mystical realm of enchanted forests, majestic castles, and forgotten kingdoms brought to life through stunning visual effects and sweeping cinematic landscapes. The ensemble cast features both new and returning characters, led by Warwick Davis reprising his iconic role as the big-hearted, determined hero Willow Ufgood.

With its epic quest story, dazzling sorcery, and emphasis on courage and hope in the face of darkness, Willow delivers an exciting fantasy tale for both loyal fans and a new generation. The series stands on its own while also building upon the rich lore established in the classic Ron Howard-directed film from the 1980s. An enchanting return to this magical world full of danger, discovery, and destiny.
