Willow Season 1 is yet to release on Disney Plus but previewing the exotic filming locations in the trailer of the TV series, fans are eager to learn more about the locations it has been shot.
Coming from George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, Willow originally came out as a film in 1988. The storyline was planned by George a decade before its release, but the ideas were not executed until he met Warwick Davis, the film’s star.
Although Willow wasn’t a hit at the box office, it received appreciation from fans worldwide with time and became a cult classic.
Filming locations of Willow Season 1 explored
Several scenes of Willow Season 1 were filmed in Dinorwic Quarry, Wales. Moreover, New Zealand’s Tongariro National Park was used to film the castle in which Queen Bavmorda resides.
Other scenes of the series were filmed at the Dragon International Film Studios in Bridgend, Wales. The exciting part about filming at the huge studio is that it has four soundstages that can be used to shoot different scenes for a show or a film.
Two waterfalls also feature in the TV series; one was Northern California’s Burney Falls, while the other is Ireland’s Powerscourt Waterfall in County Wicklow. There’s also a forest in which Willow and Madmartigan run when the Queen’s soldier follows them; that scene was filmed in Greater London’s Epping Forest.
The crew members also stayed in Saundersfoot in Wales as the TV Series involved some filming locations for it as well. Moreover, a few scenes of the TV series involved Morlais Quarry in South Wales. Apart from that, Ufgood’s village scenes were shot in Hertfordshire’s Brocket Hall. It’s a new-classic Country House in England which features a Main House, several small buildings, and two golf courses.
