Writer and producer George Lucas and director Ron Howard’s acclaimed action adventure drama ‘Willow’ is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the release of the film’s digitally restored Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack on March 12. Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox House Entertainment are releasing the classic movie on Blu-ray for the first time since its theatrical release in 1988.

The ‘Willow’ Blu-ray and DVD include never-before-seen exclusive content, such as deleted scenes with remarks from Howard, a personal video diary of star Warwick Davis and matte paintings. There’s also a new introduction from Howard’s original 1988 featurette, ‘The Making of an Adventure,’ as well as special effect legend Dennis Muren’s new introduction to his piece, “From Morf to Morphing: The Dawn of Digital Filmmaking.”

‘Willow’ follows young Willow Ufgood (played by Davis), who finds an abandoned baby girl. He learns she’s destined to end the reign of the wicked Queen Bavmorda (portrayed by Jean Marsh), and in order to protect her, he must team with a rogue swordsman, Madmartigan (played by Val Kilmer). Together, Willow and Madmartigan must overcome the forces of darkness in the ultimate battle of good versus evil.
