- —Bavmorda, about to turn the Tir Asleen Rebels into pigs, in Willow
Transformation was a spell that turned something into something else, with the restriction that the "something else" had to be a race or item that actually existed somewhere in the world. It was a very difficult spell, and many magicians refrained from using it due to morality issues. The intelligence and wisdom of a transformed subject remained unchanged in his or her new form. However, a transformed sorcerer was unable to cast spells in animal form.
During the events that led to the fall of Bavmorda, several notable uses of the Transformation spell occurred. The High Aldwin Junn used it to change a rock into a bird. Willow Ufgood accidentally transformed a troll into an Eborsisk dragon, and Bavmorda herself transformed the entire troops of the Tir Asleen rebels into pigs.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fin Raziel's morph from goat to woman was one of the earliest uses of CGI, and became a huge leap in digital effects.
