Fearful of a prophecy stating that a girl child will be born to bring about her downfall, the evil Queen Bavmorda imprisons all pregnant women within the formidable stronghold of Nockmaar. A child, Elora Danan, is born in the Nockmaar dungeons and identified as the prophesied child by a birthmark on her arm. However, before the black sorceress arrives to claim the child, Elora's mother convinces her reluctant midwife to escape with the baby. Willow, a timid farmer and aspiring sorcerer, is entrusted with delivering the royal infant from evil.

Somehow I've never gotten around to seeing this epic fantasy film from my childhood. I guess I just haven't heard enough positive talk about it, other than from one person who loves it. Well that person was sorta right, it is an entertaining watch. Not exactly an amazing film, but the goofiness and interesting effects are certainly fun with a group of people at the viewing. I wouldn't tell you to spend a lonely night with it, but if you're into light hearted fantasy then round up a group and begin your magical expedition.

Oh, and the baby is the best actor in this film. Hands down.
