Trivia: Willow
  • Dawson Casting: Inverted. Warwick Davis was 17-18, playing a father of two. Either a case of Dawson Casting, or Willow made all the wrong decisions in life...
    • Or Nelwyns just age slower than Daikinis? (much like Hobbits)
    • Could just be a cultural thing. People started families much earlier in olden times. It's not like he had to drop out of school to take care of them.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Airk's actor (Gavan O'Herlihy) was Brother Chuck Cunningham on Happy Days.
    • Also the Jerk Ass character, Brad, from Superman III.
    • And Madmartigan is Iceman.
    • Furthermore, Willow is Wicket the Ewok from Return of the Jedi.
      • So perhaps the main reason Willow was able to defeat Queen Bavmorda was because The Force was with him?
      • Years later, Warwick Davis returned to play a number of roles in Episode I, including an unnamed person seated in the tier above Watto at the pod races...wearing a blue costume, creating the momentary effect of "Willow goes to the pod races?," furthered by Star creating a character page combining Willow and the unnamed spectator as an April Fools joke.
  • Romance on the Set: Val Kilmer and Joanne Whalley got married in real life after meeting on the movie. Their marriage lasted eight years and produced two children.
    • Warwick Davis met his wife who was an extra on this film. They've been married since 1991. One of the many reasons of why Warwick is proud of this movie.
  • Technology Marches On: The morphing Obvious CGI used with Fin Raziel was dated by the time Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country was released.
