Elora Danan, named after the infant from the 1980s fantasy film Willow,

, is one of the main characters on the fantastic FX comedy Reservation Dogs.

Everyone on the reservation has heard of the movie and, according to a running joke, has strong feelings about it

Aspiring sorcerer Willow (Warwick Davis) and mercenary Madmartigan (Val Kilmer) are forced to defend Elora Danan after a prophecy claims she would put an end to an evil queen's rule.

Willow was a small box office hit back in 1988.

 Since it was Davis' one major break as a leading actor, it has mostly been forgotten, becoming a footnote in the careers of director Ron Howard, producer George Lucas, Kilmer,

and almost everyone else involved save for Davis. (Previously, he was best recognised for playing Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi, even though he was barely recognisable in the disguise.)

It is regarded as another indication of how peculiar life may be on the reservation that it made such an impression on the friends and family of this other Elora Danan.
