Finally, one of my favorite 80′s movies is coming to blu ray! Willow has just been announced by Fox\MGM for a blu-ray release in March of next year. I love Willow, it’s directed by Ron Howard, produced and pretty much written by George Lucas, there’s plenty of magic and feel-good moments and it stars a lean, mean Val Kilmer! The basic premise behind the movie is Willow, played by Warwick Davis, finds a baby girl abandoned. What he finds out about the girl is she is the one destined to finally bring an end to the vile reign of Queen Bavmorda, who no one likes. Thus begins Willow’s adventure to protect the girl and join forces with a crazy cast of unlikely heroes. Oh yeah and he has to try to overthrow the evil Queen, no biggie.
The blu ray release will be a remastered version of the classic film, overseen by LucasFilm itself. There will also be some new special features not seen on the DVD version such as a video diary by Warwick Davis and Ron Howard introduced deleted scenes. Willow will release for Blu-ray in a DVD combo pack on March 12, 2013. What an agonizing wait for a classic. They gave us Princess Bride and all was good, so now wait we will for Willow!
