"will" is a common "add-on" or auxillary word. That's why it's often contracted = "we'll, they'll, I'll, etc." Thus there is a tendency to run the two words together, and let the vowel in "will" fall to a schwa as though "we will" was one word with accent on the "we."
You'll never be misunderstood if you clearly pronounce the short i in will in all instances, though.
This could be easily answered with a dictionary.
