The LEPRECHAUN RETURNS on Dec. 11 to Find His Pot of Gold

Still in search of his pot of gold, having been to the hood, twice, and even space, Leprechaun Returns, is going back to where it all began.

In 1993, an evil and sadistic Leprechaun went on a killing rampage in search of his ‘beloved pot of gold’. Little did we know, there would soon release the eighth installment in the series, but will mark the second film without Warwick Davis as the leprechaun. That is like trying to reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street without Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger, which they tried to do. Did we go too far? How about trying to replace Victor Crowley, played by Kane Hodder, from the Hatchet franchise, then? Cool. However, judging from the first trailer, the new leprechaun, Linden Porco, seems to be up for the challenge and, dare we say it, actually good in the role!

This sequel will be a direct follow-up to the events that occured in the first film, which starred Jennifer Aniston. Each film portrays a simple premise, in that, a leprechaun goes on a killing spree in search of his lost gold. The rest of the series continues in Leprechaun 2 (1994), Leprechaun 3 (1995), Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996), Leprechaun In the Hood (2000), Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood (2003) and Leprechaun: Origins (2014), which, as previously stated, was the first film in the series to not star Davis as the antagonist, but rather, Dylan Postl, whom you may also know as the professional wrestler Hornswoggle from the WWE or Swoggle on TNA Impact!, where he last performed.

Leprechaun Returns, a Lionsgate film, was directed by Steven Kostanski and stars Mark Holton, who reprises his role as Ozzie from the first film, and Taylor Spreitler, who will serve as Tory’s daughter, Aniston’s character. The synopsis reads, “When the sorority sisters of the Alpha Upsilon House decide to ‘go green’ and use an old well as their water source, they unwittingly awaken a pint-sized, green-clad monster. The Leprechaun wants a pot of gold buried near the sorority house, but first he must recover his powers – and only the girls of AU can stop him.”

Parting thought: How about a Leprechaun vs. Child’s Play movie? Greeny vs. Chucky.

The film drops on both Digital and On-Demand on Dec. 11, 2018, but for an exclusive look at the new movie poster via EW, click HERE.
