About The Highlander Films:

The Highlander franchise is a sprawling saga that spans centuries, immortals, and dimensions. It began with the iconic 1986 film directed by Russell Mulcahy, starring Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman. The film introduced audiences to the concept of immortal warriors battling through the ages, with the famous catchphrase, “There can be only one.”

Highlander spawned a franchise that included three sequels, each delving deeper into the mythology of the immortals and their eternal struggle. The sequels explored different time periods and introduced new characters, expanding the rich lore of the Highlander universe.

In addition to the films, Highlander also became a successful television series, featuring Adrian Paul as Duncan MacLeod, another immortal warrior facing his own challenges and adversaries. The TV series ran for six seasons and further expanded the Highlander mythology, exploring themes of love, loss, and redemption.

Highlander also inspired spin-off projects, including animated series, novels, comic books, and video games, cementing its status as a beloved and enduring franchise in pop culture history. With its blend of action, fantasy, and immortal drama, the series continues to captivate audiences and inspire new generations of fans across the globe.
