Don’t call the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day “peck!”

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

I must admit I have a soft spot for Ron Howard’s Willow. One of the benefits of being 7 when it came out was that I was in that perfect boyhood age where the monsters were still scary and the goofiness was aimed right at me.

Between Willow and Return to Oz, Jean Marsh can rot in hell… I mean that in the nicest possible way, Ms. Marsh. You’re a fantastic actress but you terrified me as a child and, if I’m going to be totally honest, a little bit as an adult man, too.

I haven’t revisited Willow recently. I’m kind of nervous to, actually, because I have fond memories of the film and I have a feeling a revisit might not hold up. However, no matter what I feel I do love the design of the two headed firebreathing monster known as the Eborsisk, designed and built by Phil Tippett and his team.

Legend has it that the creature got its name because they believed the thing looked like a combination of Siskel and Ebert, which is a huge fuck you to both men since the Eborsisk is ugly as sin. Still, if it were me I’d be super proud.

Hope you guys enjoy the image. Thanks again to the Practical Effects Group. Click to enlargen.
