Willow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Making its Blu-ray debut for its 25th anniversary, Willow features a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer overseen by George Lucas himself. In a word, the picture is gorgeous, especially if you've grown accustomed to the now-ancient DVD. To start, there's not a scratch, speck, stain, or hair on this print —it's immaculate. The only evidence of age is some slight, barely perceivable brightness fluctuation in certain scenes, but you'd have to go out of your way to look for it. And while it does appear that there is some measure of noise reduction in a few scenes, grain is still readily apparent in the image, and there's none of that ugly DNR smearing that accompanies the most careless restorations. Quite the contrary. Willow seems to have been treated with kid gloves. No edge enhancement. No compression issues. No artificial-looking contrast or saturation boosting. The image is natural, filmic, and—on top of that—often wickedly sharp in high definition for a kids' movie from the mid-1980s. Just look at the screenshots of Elora's nappy swaddling clothes. Or the detail in Bavmorda's witchy facial features. Color is well-adjusted too, with consistent skin tones, good density, and a balanced contrast curve. If you've been waiting for years to finally have Willow in high definition, you certainly won't be disappointed. This is a Grade-A catalog restoration.


Willow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

If George Lucas and THX are involved, you know the sound design is going to be thoughtfully engineered for immersion and clarity. That's certainly the case with Willow's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which is engaging from the prologue's crackling thunder to the pouring rain and arcs of electricity that accompany the climactic wizard battle. In nearly every scene, the full soundfield is being utilized, blending clear dialogue up front with rear channel ambience—birds, insects, wind, village festival sounds—and pinpoint directional noises, like dog snarls or the baby's cries. The track is unrelenting in a good way, and it's always clean and full-sounding, with no tinniness or crackling or harsh highs. The film's magical score comes from prolific composer James Horner—Avatar, A Beautiful Mind, Aliens, Cocoon—and it too swells out from every speaker with presence and strength. The disc also includes several dub and subtitle options; see above for complete details.
