Image Engine returned to the much-loved Tir Asleen kingdom for Jonathan Kasdan’s Disney+ series, Willow.
Our team delivered 156 shots across episodes 4 & 6 of Willow Ufgood’s new fantastic voyage, comprising a mix of environment work, sorcerous effects, and reviving some familiar faces from years long past.
Set decades after Ron Howard’s 1988 movie, this epic fantasy TV series by Lucasfilm begins with an aspiring magician and an infant girl destined to unite the realms. In a magical world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls, and other mystical creatures flourish, the adventure continues, as an unlikely group of heroes set off on a dangerous quest to places far beyond their home, where they must face their inner demons and come together to save their world.
Starring Warwick Davis, Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Amer Chadha-Patel and Tony Revolori.
