Willow fans, this is some wonderful news.
In celebration of Willow‘s upcoming 25th anniversary, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox have (finally) announced a Blu-Ray edition!
The Blu-Ray will launch March 12, 2013. This means that, 9063 days after the film premiered, we’re finally set to see it at home in high definition. This new release will feature a completely new digital transfer and restoration overseen by the wonderful team at LucasFilm, as well as some never before seen special features including:
-NEW Willow: Deleted Scenes with Ron Howard
-NEW Willow: An Unlikely Hero Personal Video Diary of Warwick Davis
-The Making of an Adventure with an all new introduction from Ron Howard
-From Morf to Morphing with an all new introduction from Dennis -Muren
We’re stoked for this at Geekscape. This is one of Jonathan’s top 5 fantasy movies of all time (and the first he ever saw in a theater). And now I can actually get the reference when he calls me “Peck”!
Again, you’ll be able to pick up the 25th anniversary edition of Willow on Marth 12th, 2013. Watch the trailer for the upcoming release below, and share your excitement!
