Video: First look at the Leprechaun in 'Leprechaun: Origins'
Comic-Con may be one of the biggest movie-related shindigs on the face of the planet, but it still makes space for some of life’s smaller—not to mention Irish-er—things. That’s in reference, of course, to Leprechaun: Origins, the horror reboot starring WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the titular Emerald Isle monster.
To mark today’s Leprechaun-featuring WWE Studios and Lionsgate panel at Comic-Con, EW is exclusively debuting a sequence from the film which boasts the first look at the new Leprechaun himself. At last year’s New York Comic-Con, Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky described his movie as “terrifying.” Certainly the clip would seem to confirm that the reboot is a considerably more serious affair than the original Warwick Davis-starring series of movies, which included 1997’s Leprechaun 4: In Space and 2000’s Leprechaun: In the Hood.
