A reluctant dwarf must play a critical role in protecting a special baby from an evil queen.
On the official movie poster, the wind is blowing simultaneously both left and right, as evidenced by the characters' hair.
Willow: Courage, Willow!
When Willow says good-bye to Elora at the crossroads, the papoose disappears from Madmartigan's shoulders in one shot, evidenced by the white woolen strap not being present.
Although he played the title role, Warwick Davis took just third billing. Val Kilmer and Joanne Whalley took first and second billing respectively.
In order to obtain a PG certificate by the BBFC in the UK, 34 seconds were edited for the theatrical version. The footage included the hounds attacking the midwife early in the film, the more graphic moments in the scene where a troll morphs into a two-headed dragon, scenes of bloody fighting, and scenes of Bavmorda turning people into pigs. The distributors also reduced the redness of the blood on Raziel's face during her battle with Queen Bavmorda, and toned down certain sound effects. The film was only available in the UK in this censored form until 2002, when the BBFC passed the film uncut with a PG rating.
