This year has been a busy blur for Marvel Studios. They’ve released three theatrical films and debuted four streaming series. But this year for Christmas, there’s something fans would really like from Kevin Feige.

Because Christmas Time has come, and that means MCU joy for everyone.
It’s been almost 35 years since Willow hit the big screen.

Praised for its special effects and pupperty, the film lives on as a cult classic, especially to those who may not be fans of Star Wars or Indiana Jones.
