Andowyne's under a new threat, so you'll need to watch Willow online to see how its old hero will help protect the land he already saved from the evil Queen Bavmorda.

Willow release date, time and more

Release date and time: Willow episodes 1 and 2 debuts on Wednesday (Nov. 30) on Disney Plus (opens in new tab) at 3 a.m. ET. Full release schedule below.

Interestingly enough, Willow looks a lot different from the classic film. This new series, as you'll see below, looks a lot more traditional. With the visuals of a modern fantasy story, and lacking the peculiar oddities of the original film, Disney Plus' Willow looks to appeal to younger audiences far more than its peculiar predecessor.

But, yes, Warwick Davis is back in the cloak of Willow Ufgood. Only this time he has a new generation to help figure out their way. Our potential favorite, looking at the cast, is Graydon — who is played by Tony Revolori. Yes, the actor who played Flash Thompson in the MCU Spider-Man movies is here.

Here's everything you need to know to watch Willow online, and here's the trailer:
