That would be Phil Fondacaro and I'm not sure, I'm not seeing him in credits listings, but probably is!
Also seems like Val is due to show up in a planned second season.

if Davis is on board, I'll give it a shot

I'd LOVE to see Val Kilmer hamming it up as he did, now middle-aged, sounds very fun
Pleased to learn that Jean Marsh is still alive! She seemed so old in the movie I guess I just assumed she'd passed. I love Willow (the movie), I watch it every Christmas

it’s one of my favorites too!

i think Ron Howard directing helped it stay away from being exploitative of little people actors, as dmac noted way upthread. the actors obv have a lot to d that too - but i def credit howard with the mindfulness to ensure their characters are all so varied & human & great i mean even the baby gives a great performance!!

Man you know what I love more than anything, is Davis and Marsh's delivery here:
Willow: You stupid hag! With my magic, I'll send her into the... into a...Bavmorda: [laughs] You're no sorcerer!Willow: Into a realm where evil cannot touch her!Bavmorda: Impossible! There's no such place!
This movie is so wonderful

Gotta say I really am liking the look/vibe of this new show more and more.
This November, the magic returns ✨ Watch the new trailer for #Willow, an epic new Original series streaming only on @DisneyPlus. pic.twitter.com/QKSU15rz2Z— Willow (@WillowOfficial) September 10, 2022

And new clip

For a second there I thought that new Dungeons and Dragons movie had come and gone already.
How many of these things do we need? (Full disclosure: I saw "Willow" in the theatres, but I was also 12 or something.)

After Rings of Power sludged my brain I am all in for something breezy in comparison on this front.
― Ned Raggett, Sunday, 30 October 2022 18:17 (six months ago) link
I can't wait
It's interesting hearing Tony Revolori speaking mumblecore dialect (instead of standard fantasy accent) in the trailer

I've been semi-present in my attendance for all these recent fantasy series, only was enthusiastic in my response re: Sandman, but very excited for this tbh

First episode almost here! Will watch tomorrow obv.
― Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 30 November 2022 06:08 (five months ago) link
Okay this was a great start. The antithesis of _Rings of Power_ in the best way, in that I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the season.

Oh damn this is up?!

Sure is! Interested to know what you think! Two episodes debuted yesterday.
― Ned Raggett, Thursday, 1 December 2022 18:06 (five months ago) link
i was kinda underwhelmed by 1st ep? but they had to load in a lot of background info so i’m not prejudging yet

hey you know what, this show is great
queer and silly and bright, giving 0.5% of a fuck for the self-serious high fantasy tone that sludges up gamehousering of dragonpowerthrones
― doctor w00t (cat), Sunday, 1 January 2023 03:03 (four months ago) link
Yeah it's been a total treat. Everything feels like it's being made up as it goes along, which is 100% vibes. It's like an ultimate fanfic, and the queer YA core of it all is indeed brilliant. Also love all the song choices and covers.
― Ned Raggett, Sunday, 1 January 2023 03:14 (four months ago) link
yes and heck yes, hi 5 bro! i was iffy at parts of the first couple episodes, like the first time someone said "dude" i needed to pause & recalibrate & decide if these flavors clashed or complemented, but it's won me over and i will now firmly stan this show until it gets bad or i get bored.
love the colors, the songs (even [especially?] the bratty pop punk), the dedication to shoehorning in jokes no matter how corny, the awkward teen romances, the way it's equally happy barreling straight into the cliché-est cliché or skewing off in any other random direction. it feels like everyone is having fun and i love that!
kind of didn't love the kill-your-gays-ing of the excellent woodswomen, like how dare you dangle these beautiful lives before us and then immediately snuff them out!? unnecessarily cruel imo but c'est la tv, and anyway there's still enough shaggy exuberance to keep me ensorcelled ☾ ⋆*･ﾟ:⋆*･ﾟ

Alas, that will be it, at least as a show:
Pity because I did like the crazy ending, song choice and all. (And a hint of a returning Ebersisk.)

More like, we're not canceled, we just released the cast to do other things, but we may get around to it in a year or 30.
