Fred Topel writes for the website Slash Film about the 1988 film Willow and how Joseph Campbell’s wife inspired one of the film’s iconic lines!
Director Ron Howard tells that screenwriter Bob Dolman and him were taken by George Lucas to meet Joseph Campbell and his wife, Jean Campbell. As they dinned and talked about Willow, the couple listened with excitement and appreciation for all the mythic references that intertwine with the plot.
As the conversation grew to an end, Jean offered her piece of mind on the character Fin Raziel. Her insight touched the filmmakers, and her very words were transferred onto the screen. Care to guess what is was she said?
