WILLOW The Animated Series - 1980's Concept Art

I'm a big fan of Ron Howard and George Lucas' 1988 fantasy film Willow. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and I recently showed it to my own kids, who absolutely loved it. 

Lucasfilm was actually planning a Willow animated series, but for one reason or another, it ended up not happening. Probably because the movie didn't really do that well at the box office. The studio was prepping for one though, and a collection of production art has been released that includes some fun sketches and character designs from the abandoned project.

Some of the characters you'll see here in cartoon form include Willow, Madmartigan, Sorsha, the Brownies, and an older Elora Danan. There's also a dragon and some new villain designs. It's a shame this series never happened; there's no doubt in my mind that I would have loved it!

Check out the concept art and let us know: is this something you would have liked to have seen brought to life back in the day?
