NOTE: This article is about the incarnation of Silver from The Angry Birds Movie Duology. The mainstream version can be found here: Willow (Angry Birds)
Willow is a blue colored bird. She has a crush on Bomb, and also attends Avian Acadamy. She is voiced by Charlotte Emma Aitchison aka Charli XCX.
Willow has a many-feathered crest that resembles human hair, which she restrains and conceals by wearing a red and yellow striped hat. While Willow has a turquoise plumage, it becomes paler at the front of her torso and darker around her eyes, which her eyes are red-brown and with squarish eyelashes, she doesn't have eyebrows.
Willow has a moderate wingspan and an oval-shaped body that tapers towards the bottom and stands on average-length slender, scaly legs that match the color of her beak.
Willow is very artistic and loves to daydream. Unfortunately, she has grand ideas but cannot always follow through. It aggravates her to see someone destroying her habitat. She is a free spirit but is the shyest of the group. She also feels safest when wearing a large, oversized hat, which she tends to hide under. She sometimes holds back her feelings aside from when pigs are around. She hates it when someone disturbs her when she has a creative art session.
The Angry Birds Movie
Willow was one of the many birds who witnessed Leonard and his assistant Ross' arrival to Bird Island. She like all the other birds, excluding Red, accepted them as friends. As such, Willow, Stella, Dahlia, Poppy, Gale and other birds her performed a show to honor the pigs, and after the performance, Willow was seen sitting in a table next to Dahlia, while the pigs demonstrated their new devices such as a Trampoline and the slingshot, as she volunteered to be launched from it, but Red was chosen instead, but she and other birds all said "Fire!" and looked how far Red went.
After Red was launched, she was dancing with the other birds to Leonard, until Red crashed the party and told all of them that there are more Pigs on the island, due to Leonard saying that they are the only ones. Willow, like Judge Peckinpah, didn't believe Red as they booed at him and gave him a stern face, but was interested in the pigs performance.
Some time after the party, Willow, while she was crossing the street, was on a Pig for a Piggy Back Ride.
Willow then was invited to a Rave Party by the pigs and she was in the middle of the dance floor, along with Dahlia, Poppy and Matilda, but she was interrupted after Chuck told them that the Pigs are stealing their eggs. After the party, Willow saw the destruction of her home, and like all the other birds, felt bad for her actions or disbelieving Red, but she made up for it by helping Red build a boat to travel from Bird Island to Piggy Island. Willow was seen worrying about Red as he was about to be launched from Terence, but she was happy when she finds out that Red was alive.
But later as times were desperate, Willow was worrying who should go next, but Terence volunteered to sling himself to Leonard's castle, but he broke the slingshot, and all hope was lost.
Willow then cheered for Red when he came out alive from Pig City's destruction, and helped to rebuild Bird Island. She and her friends walk past the Hug Trader, holding paint-buckets when requesting a hug, but this time, Willow and her friends hugged him and he was so happy, that they all fell down, and for saving the eggs, Willow and others, rebuild his house declaring him a member in their bird society.
The Angry Birds Movie 2
Willow was one of the many participants in the Speed Dating event on Bird Island, hosted by Pinky, where she briefly dated Bomb at one point. She later was seen at Avian Acadamy, where Red, Bomb, Leonard, and Chuck, were recruiting Silver.
Willow, like the other residents on Bird Island, were shocked to discover that Mighty Mountain has been destroyed, and was celebrating Red going to save the day again and was there when the pigs revealed the Piggy Gadget Lab rising from the water.
She survived the attacks of the molten lava ice balls as she attended Mighty Eagle and Zeta's wedding, along with Poppy, Dahlia and Stella.
- Willow makes a cameo in the first film. She is currently the second bird in her flock (excluding Stella) to make a confirmed appearance, the first bird is Gale, the third bird is Dahlia, and the fourth bird is Poppy.
- As British singer Charli XCX voices Willow in the film, she consequently has a British accent while singing the song "Explode".
