Below, you’ll find a list of the 10 most underrated Disney movies streaming on Disney Plus. Let’s get the list started with Willow!
10. Willow (1988)
Director: Ron Howard
Writer: George Lucas
Starring: Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Warwick Davis, Jean Marsh, Patricia Hayes, Billy Barty, Pat Roach, Gavan O’Herlihy, and David Steinberg.
Willow follows a man named Willow, played by Warwick Davis, who dreams of one day becoming a magician but lacks self-confidence.
Every year at a festival, the village magician checks out a batch of potential students to, hopefully, choose an apprentice. When the magician holds out his hand to the students and asked them to choose the finger that has the power, Willow struggles between his own hand and the magician’s hand. Eventually, he chooses the magician’s finger and fails the test.
Soon after, Willow discovers a human baby at the river and takes her to the magician to decide what’s to be done with her. The magician asks Willow to take the baby to the human settlement because there is an evil queen after her. Because of his love for the baby, Willow appoints himself as her guardian and protector. That is when the real adventure begins, as Willow and his friends outwit the queen in her attempts to kill little the baby.
The movie was directed by Ron Howard and produced by Lucas Films. The critics weren’t impressed, and neither were the moviegoers, probably because people were expecting another Star Wars-type movie.
