Cast and Characters
Season 1 Review: Willow is, ultimately, a rare treat, the fantasy answer to Top Gun: Maverick that gives fans everything they want and even more.Rating: 100/100
Season 1 Review: The final product is something that stands as well on its own as it does as a continuation of Ron Howard’s classic film.Rating: 91/100
Season 1 Review: We finally have a sequel that continues the Willow saga with the heart and soul the story deserves. Disney+‘s new series Willow is a raggedy, hilarious, and absolutely enchanting continuation of the Lucasfilm cult classic. Instead of wallowing in “grimdark” imagery or losing itself tripping over unnecessary mystery boxes, Willow embraces the joy of its source material. Willow is a tour de force of fun and fantasy frivolity.Rating: 90/100
Season 1 Review: What this Willow proves to be is a bold, engaging, and above all else fun ride.Rating: 75/100
Season 1 Review: “Willow,” Disney+’s entry in the big streaming fantasy sweepstakes of 2022, may initially seem like a Disney Channel version of “Rings of Power” or “House of the Dragon.” ... Get through the premiere episode, though, and you’ll be rewarded with a little magic. The actors calm down and their teenage characters develop compelling dimensions; the action and world-building grow more awesome each week; and self-mocking humor lends a freshness absent from the super-serious Prime Video and HBO mega-productions.Rating: 75/100
San Francisco Chronicle
Season 1 Review: Most of the biggest problems exist within the premiere, and afterward, Willow picks up a good bit of steam and starts showing its potential. Audiences who have held the original movie in high esteem for all these years will likely be pleasantly surprised.Rating: 74/100
Season 1 Review: [Willow] only exhibits a spark of life whenever Davis is cracking wise or admonishing his compatriots to follow his lead, which isn’t frequent enough. Perhaps Willow has some amazing surprise around its later corners that justify this return trip to Tir Asleen. On the basis of its maiden installments, though, it mostly comes across as another unnecessary if passable bit of IP exploitation.Rating: 40/100
