Disney Plus's 'Willow' Series Adds Ellie Bamber, Erin Kellyman & Cailee Spaeny

The cast for Disney+‘s upcoming Willow series is filling out!

The streaming network has announced that Ellie Bamber, Erin Kellyman and Cailee Spaeny have all joined the series.

In a circulated casting information for the series, via Deadline, the series is reported to revolve around a group on a mission to save a kidnapped prince. The members of the team include Dove (Bamber), whose backstory resembles that of Willow from the movie.

Dove is an unassuming kitchen maid who proves that she is the “chosen one” as she embarks on the journey. She is joined by Kit (Spaeny), the princess whose twin brother was abducted. She is destined to be a leader and ultimately the queen.

Erin would play Jade, a servant who is Kit’s best friend and moral compass. She is on her way to becoming the best young warrior in the kingdom.

The casting report also says there is another role still yet to be cast, who joins the quest in exchange for getting out of prison.

The series is expected to take place years after the events of the original film, and introduces all-new characters to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters.

Warwick Davis will be returning as Willow, with Jon M. Chu directing.
