Towards the beginning of the movie, Willow orders that no one in the family shall fall in love with that baby next to the stream's bank. A nearby tree stump has a classic modern chainsaw cut not from a medieval woodsman felling ax. See more »
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. See more »
This movie has everything! Well... Lots of things!
A wonderful fantasy full with lots of wonderful creatures and characters. The plot is great and the cast is brilliant. I wish this movie was more known, it's almost a hidden gem.
The movie is just one exciting ride after the other.
It's one of the best fantasy movies ever made, and if you're a fantasy fan you just got to see this one. I wish there were more movies of that kind, hopefully the upcoming Lord Of The Rings will deliver similar excitement.
