Continuity mistake: When Fin Raziel talks to Madmartigan and Willow inside the cage, Mad's left hand is resting on his knee in the angle shot from behind, but in a totally different position in the rest of the front shots. This swaps back and forth all the time.

Continuity mistake: On the cart, Madmartigan is face-up with a baddie on top of him. Madmartigan punches him with his right fist so the baddie should fall backwards or to the left. However, shot changes and not only is Madmartigan magically standing up, but the baddie is falling to the right, as if the punch came from a totally different position.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie the camera pans to different villagers as they notice Willow returning after his journey. One of the villagers they show is Willow's wife, although they show her in another scene (a minute or so later) walking from a different area and noticing Willow for the first time (again).

Willow: What are you doing?
Madmartigan: I found some blackroot. She loves it.
Willow: Blackroot? I am the father of two children and you never, ever give a baby blackroot.
Madmartigan: Well my mother raised us on blackroot. It's good for you. Puts hair on your chest. Doesn't it, Sticks?
Willow: Her name is not Sticks. She's Elora Danan, the future empress of Tir Asleen and the last thing she's gonna want is a hairy chest.

More quotes from Willow

Trivia: Pat Roach - General Kael - intended to do the stunts by himself, but there was one thing that prevented this: "Insurance - they wouldn't let me." So horsemaster Greg Powell did the stunts for him.

More trivia for Willow

Question: Why did Queen Bavmorda need a ritual to get rid of the child? Why didn't she simply kill the baby on the spot?

Answer: Bavmorda's ritual was the Ritual of Obliteration - a spell that is used to destroy a living spirit's essence or soul. Presuambly if she'd just killed Elora, the soul would have been later reborn into another baby.
