The original LEPRECHAUN Horror franchise began in 1993, and the film starred Warwick Davis in the title role. The film also launched the career of Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston in her first major part. Five sequels followed, creating a cult favorite series.
Fast forward to the present day and the world is getting very close to the arrival of LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS. In fact the brand new trailer (see below) has been unleashed revealing the new look of the Leprechaun. We also have a first look image for you to enjoy. It provides a much clearer view of the little guy.
Courtesy of Lionsgate and WWE Studios, the new film looks to bring the Horror back to the LEPRECHAUN name. WWE Superstar Dylan Postl aka Hornswoggle will be portraying the Leprechaun.
LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS stars Stephanie Bennett, Andrew Dunbar, Melissa Roxburgh and Brendan Fletcher. It was written by Harris Wilkinson and directed by Zach Lipovsky.
"Backpacking through the lush Irish countryside, two unsuspecting young couples discover a town’s chilling secret. Ben (Dunbar), Sophie (Bennet), David (Fletcher) and Jeni (Roxburgh) quickly discover the idyllic land is not what it appears to be when the town’s residents offer the hikers an old cabin at the edge of the woods. Soon, the friends will find that one of Ireland’s most famous legends is a terrifying reality."
LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS is coming to VOD August 26th and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD September 30th.
