Willow is one of those films that’s been hurting for a sequel for decades now. In an era where fantasy movies kinda sucked, Willow stood out as one that was pretty solid to watch, even as I got older. With the advent of Disney+, it only seemed to make sense that they would attempt to re-create the magic on the streaming service in television form. We already know Jon Kasdan is on board, but do they have a greenlight yet at Disney+?
“We are developing Willow for Disney Plus,” Howard told Collider in a recent interview. “And I don’t know about directing or not, but Jon Kasdan is writing, he’s very passionate about it, great job. We don’t have a green light yet, but if it goes, I’ll certainly want to roll up my sleeves and be a part of that, because that would be great, to revisit that world.”
And passion is the key word here when it comes to not only Willow but event series as well, which audiences have high expectations of these days.
“…in this world of these event series, they really do look to the showrunners and the key creatives to tell them their vision,” Howard said. “It’s one of the reasons why TV has gotten so good, is that they really are looking at the showrunners as authors of something that they’re deeply passionate about. And Jon is deeply passionate about Willow, which tickles me to no end.”
