When young Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) finds an abandoned baby, he is suddenly thrust unto an adventure filled with magic and danger. According to an ancient prophecy, the sacred child is destined to end the reign of the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda (Jean Marsh). Now, the only a single swordsman (Val Kilmer) at his side, Willow must overcome the forces of darkness that threaten to destroy anyone who stands in the Queen's way!

Directed by Ron Howard and produced by George Lucas, the film is at once an epic celebration and a gentle spoof of the sword-and-sorcery genre.

Director Ron Howard. 126 minutes. Rated PG, from 1988.
