From legendary filmmakers George Lucas and Ron Howard comes Willow, a timeless fantasy tale where heroes come in all sizes. When Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) finds an abandoned baby girl, he learns she is destined to end the reign of wicked Queen Bavmorda. Willow teams up with a rogue swordsman (Val Kilmer) to protect the child against the darkness. Filled with magic and danger, Willow is the ultimate story of good versus evil.
Adventure doesn't come any bigger than this.. Fearful of a prophecy stating that a girl child will be born to bring about her downfall, the evil Queen Bavmorda imprisons all pregnant women within the formidable stronghold of Nockmaar. A child, Elora Danan, is born in the Nockmaar dungeons and identified as the prophesied child by a birthmark on her arm. However, before the black sorceress arrives to claim the child, Elora's mother convinces her reluctant midwife to escape with the baby. Willow, a timid farmer and aspiring sorcerer, is entrusted with delivering the royal infant from evil.. Willow Wiki
There is a band in my town called "Madmartigan" - they write songs about the stories and characters from this movie. Just watch it - that is all I will say.
To the people that decided to charge $20 for this digital movie, you are seriously delusional. It was a great movie when I was a kid, but it’s not worth THAT much, especially when you don’t offer a physical copy.
How anyone could give this film Rotten Tomatoes is beyond belief. Star Wars looks like crap compared to this stuff!! To me, it was completely on par with the Hobbit Trilogy. The landscapes are breathtaking! Just wow. I'm so glad I rented it. I grew up in the 80s and I had never seen this film! Wonderful, wonderful work! I mean, it's Lucas! Come on...
Wish more movies could be as good as this one
I remember watching Willow when I was a kid. I was never into Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, really. I guess I'm just one of those people that still love the 80's. Thanks iTunes for putting Willow available for purchase!
Took long enough. My newest copy was on laser disc. If Lord of the Rings is Star Trek, Willow is Star Wars.
One of my favorite movies from childhood and STILL fun to watch! Just bought the 30th Anniversary iTunes HD version and it's worth every penny. This movie is far from perfect but it's still a gem. Only heartless critics give this movie a bad rap - ignore them and enjoy some fantasy fun.
Finally! Truly a great film for the whole family. A must own!
Glad to see it has come to iTunes. I grew up with it and my kids will too:)
A fantastic movie. Period. Rotten tomatoes is rotten for not giving the film a better score. Believe the iTunes average score.
Never wrote a review... I must agree with other review. Great film, why such high price? It s from 1988??
I have to dusagree. I've waited for this movie to come to itunes forever and think it's still worth twenty bucks. of course thats just my opinion.
Really iTunes? You want to sell a 30 year old movie for $24.99?? It's a great movie, but it's 30 years old. Get real.
