Warwick Davis is the only cast member from the 1988 Willow movie to return for the series. He will reprise his role as Willow Ufgood. However, the spotlight will now fall on Princess Kit (Ruby Cruz). That’s because she has to save her twin brother, who has been kidnapped. But Kit won’t be alone on her quest. A warrior named Jade (Erin Kellyman) and Kit’s maid, Dove (Ellie Bamber), will accompany her. Boorman (Amer Chadha-Patel) also joins the three young women in return for being freed from prison.
