There are already multiple Lucasfilm TV series coming to Disney’s streaming service Disney+ including The Mandalorian and an untitled series following Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Now another Lucasfilm title could be on the way, but it’s not set in the Star Wars universe. According to reports, Ron Howard and Jon Kasdan are in negotiations to bring a TV series based on the 1988 fantasy movie Willow to the streaming service.
We talk a lot about tech on The Drill Down – gaming tech and smart home tech are the sort of thing we get into regularly. But what about smart mom tech?
Willow is breaking into the smart mom tech movement with their eponymous pump. Unlike most breast pumps, which attach suction cups to nipples and then extract the milk through tubes, the Willow Pump uses a different approach. Last year they showed off a prototype, but this year at CES 2018 they’re back after a beta, with a lot of knowledge, along with new pricing and availability.
If you haven’t kept up with Season Nine of the Buffyverse, here is the short version: All magic has disappeared from our world, now that The Seed had been destroyed. With some help from Angel, Willow has used Buffy’s broken scythe to open a way to another world where she might find a new source of magic and reestablish a connection to the powers she sorely misses. Willow: Wonderland is a five-issue limited series that is now available in graphic novel form for those who missed it the first time.
Jumping into a new world with nothing but a weapon in her hand, Willow establishes a destination after a quick incantation. Shortly after she is attacked by the local denizens and has a pretty close call with a humongous monster, she finds herself face to face with another mage from Earth (though he has had a bit of a mishap) named Marrak. Their adventures include meeting the original caterpillar from Lewis Carroll’s classic book, a reunion with Willow’s former mentor Aluwyn, and an introduction to Aluwyn’s Supercoven that she created near a Wellspring of magic.
There’s an image on Buzzfeed titled “Willow And Elora Danan, 24 Years Later” with no image credit or caption. The man in the photo is actor Warwick Davis, who played the title role in the 1988 fantasy film Willow; the image title insinuates that the woman in the photo is the actress who played the baby Elora Danan in the film over two decades ago.
In Willow, the role of Elora Danan was actually played by infant twin girls, Ruth and Kate Greenfield, but there’s no mention as to which of the sisters is in this new photo.
