This time around Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi, Labyrinth) won’t be stepping back into the role that made him famous in the early ’90s. It’s also the role that gave him instant cult status with us genre fans. Don’t you dare say the word Willow, because that movie sucked huge gorilla balls! I’m talking about Leprechaun. Yes, the evil Leprechaun role that forever made us look at a four-leaf clover differently.
Unfortunately, Warwick won’t be reprising this role in the new Leprechaun reboot, which is expected to terrify a new generation. Leprechaun: Origins is going full on scare now, and less of the old-schoolcomedy route. WWE Superstar Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl is the new Leprechaun and based on what the official trailer for Origins delivered today, my gut feeling is telling me this movie will be awesome. “Hornswoggle” will be gold without a doubt.
So, what are you waiting for? Watch the bloody trailer now!
