Willow (1988) Poster

(1988)

Alternate Versions

The scene where the nurse is attacked by the dog after she puts the baby basket into the river is cut from the PG video in the UK, but this scene was left intact when it was shown on BBC1.
The above cuts (totalling 34 secs) were edited from all UK cinema and video versions. The film was passed uncut for DVD in the UK as a PG certificate in 2002
A deleted scene took place after Willow met Fin Raziel (as the muskrat) on the island. They left back on the boat, where a massive storm took place courtesy of Bavmorda's magic. Eventully, Willow is pulled under water and attacked by a fish/shark creature. A piece of the scene is shown in the "Making of Willow" documentary available on the DVD. Willow's hair is also noticibly wet when back on land.
The UK version edits the second sword thrust into General Kael when Madmartigan steps on the sword and drives it through him. It only shows Madmartigan step on the sword, then cuts to Kael falling. A scene during the battle between Bavmorda and Fin Raziel was deleted which actually showed where the scratches on Fin's face came from.
Also, during the fight at the castle towards the end, Willow zaps the troll with his wand, and 2 creatures emerge from its skin. In the UK version of this film, the bit where the creatures quickly rip the skin off of the troll is missing.
