The cast and filmmakers from “Willow,” the all-new action-adventure series based on George Lucas’ 1988 fantasy-adventure film, were in London earlier today for a special screening at the Curzon Soho Cinema. Showrunner, executive producer, and writer Jon Kasdan and stars Warwick Davis, Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Tony Revolori, Amar Chadha-Patel, and Dempsey Bryk, took to the stage to introduce the first two episodes of the epic series filled with excitement, magic, and non-stop adventure, much to the delight of fans and guests in attendance.
