Released in the year 1988 and directed by Ron Howard, 'Willow''s mystical theme and characters made it an obvious choice for an audience seeking a little fantasy for their entertainment.
Starring Warwick Davis as Willow Ufgood, Val Kilmer as Madmartigan and Joanne Whalley as Sorsha, 'Willow' is a story about their adventure trying to keep an unknown baby safe. The story is written by the famous George Lucas of 'Star Wars' fame.
The story is set in motion when Willow's children find a baby girl floating in a river. Not knowing who the baby belonged to, Willow Ufgood decides to make the baby part of his family. But soon, their village is attacked by creatures supposedly looking for the baby. After these events and discussion with the village elders, Willow is tasked with returning the baby to her rightful guardian. Accordingly, Willow sets out on a journey along with Brownies, Franjean and Rool. On their way, they meet a thief Madmartigan, who is locked in a cage. They set him free and continue on their journey. Soon they learn from a fairy named Cherlindrea that the baby girl is destined to bring down the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda and it was her creatures that were sent to kill the baby; that the baby's destiny will be fulfilled if she is returned to the sorceress Fin Raziel. And so, Willow and his unusual company of friends head to Fin Raziel while being pursued by Queen Bavmorda's General, Kael, and the Queen's daughter Sorsha.
