Lucasfilm is splashing out on the OG’s 45th anniversary this week war of stars rolls over and the first two episodes of Obi Wan Kenobi Premiered on Disney+. But let’s switch lanes from the daring space heroes and villains to something a little more nature-based. We’re talking pasturethe upcoming fantasy series produced by Lucasfilm and based on the 1988 film of the same name directed by Ron Howard.
“There is a story about a child who is destined to be an empress and the unlikely hero who would protect her,” proclaims a narrator at the beginning of the series’ first teaser, which includes a surely foreboding shot of Warwick Davis ending as the titular Willow Ufgood.
There’s also the return of James Horner’s legendary score and a barrage of magical objects – wands, glittering swords; You name it, it’s here. Joanne Whalley celebrates her big return from the film as Sorsha, raising her glass at a luxurious dining table full of silk-draped apprentices. And what on earth comes out of the water in greeting The Grand Hotel Budapestis Tony Revolori?
“There is a balance between all things. light and shadow. Good and bad,” Willow says in the trailer. (Did he forget to mention “Sith and Jedi”?) “If that balance is upset, the universe corrects it.”
Aside from returning to magic after more than three decades, pasture‘s Resurrection boasts a warm young cast full of promising newcomers. along with Revolori, pasture FeaturesRosabell Laurenti Sellers, Ellie Bamber, Dempsey Byrk, Ruby Cruz and Erin Kellyman (from another Lucasfilm project solo) to lead the charge.
What about the original cast of the film? We knew Warwick Davis would helm the series again, but Whalley’s appearance is new. Showrunner Jon Kasdan recently confirmed that Val Kilmer will not be making a cameo as Madmartigan and the series will not recast him. The rest is up in the air.
The original pasture based on a story by George Lucas and a screenplay by Bob Dolman. Howard returns as executive producer on the TV revival project developed by Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle. And if you’re still wondering why this new replica of pasture looks so similar to the original, not just because of the dev team—pasture 2as we will call it hereafter, was also filmed in the mossy hills of Wales.
pasture will enchant Disney+ on November 30th.
