No, Willow is no masterpiece, but it's fun. I'm happier the sequel series is being made for the sake of Warwick Davis (who deserves it) than truly being excited about it myself. The Mandalorian Season 1 turned out to be better than I expected though.

The Mouse demands his money from the IPs. All the IPs.

I mean... it was kinda a campy time in the sword & sorcery genre to begin with. I'd say Willow compares favorably with other 1980's fantasy films. But I am a known Willow fan. It's fundamentally a kid's movie, being aimed I'd guess at an age somewhere between The Never Ending Story or The Dark Crystal but younger than the intended audience of Conan of The Barbarian.

I just watched The Long Way Round on DVD. That actually has me thinking Kenobi miiiight work. For those who never saw it, in TLWR, Ewan MacGregor and two pals get on motorcycles and drive from London across all of Europe and Asia to the Bering Strait where they hop a plane to Alaska. Then they drive the motorcycles to New York where they fly back to London. They aren't playing characters, it's just them doing this for fun. Took like 15 weeks. They had two support vans that met up with them at international borders to make sure everything was going ok and to make sure they got through customs.

"Kid's movie" is a dangerously vague term for some of these. I feel that impaling people with swords, especially Madmartigan lowering General Kael down unto a sword, is inappropriate for young children.

For my son's first showing of AotC when he was 6, I edited out a few things. Now at age 11, RotS is his favorite SW film but he still looks away when Anakin Vader catches on fire, and again during the later closeup when he is all melty.

Well he's a better man than me then. Good job raising an empathetic person. It's hard to do.
