Complete with a lovely dual-interview opportunity for the public with two of the classic film’s integral artists, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are re-releasing Willow. This movie will be appearing on both DVD and Blu-ray after director Ron Howard and star Warwick Davis give an “Artist to Artist Twitter chat” this month. You’ll be able to join in, too!
If you’ll head to Twitter on March 12th (that’s a Tuesday) from 2-2:30 PM PST, you’ll find both Davis and Howard giving a talk – and you can join in if you’d like! Follow #WillowChat and you’ll see the whole epic trading of words commencing. Then comes the features in the actual release!
With this release of Willow as a 25th Anniversary Edition, you’ll find a brand new personal video diary from none other than Warwick Davis – he’s going all-out to promote this, one of this most well-known starring roles. You’ll find matte paintings, photos of on-set bits and pieces, and deleted scenes as well. You’ll be getting a set of remarks from Ron Howard as well – what better wait to gain insight into the making of the classic?
This release will also include a new introduction from Ron Howard to the original 1988 featurette for the film, “The Making of an Adventure.” You’ll also see special effects master Dennis Muren give a new introduction to his bit of the collection, “From Morf to Morphing: The Dawn of Digital Filmmaking.” Sounds rather great! We’ll see the release of Willow in its newest fully digitally restored edition on both Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack starting on March 12th wherever fine films are sold.
