Last year it was reported that Ron Howard and his Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan were in talks with Disney+ to develop a TV sequel to Lucasfilm’s cult 1988 fantasy Willow, and now Kasdan has revealed on Twitter that work on the show is officially underway.

The original film tells the story of Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis), a kind-natured farmer and aspiring sorcerer, who teams with the mercenary swordsman Madmartigan (Val Kilmer) to protect an infant princess from the wicked sorceress Queen Bavmorda (Jean Marsh).
While details on Howard and Kasdan’s plans for the series are being kept under wraps at present, we do know that the show will serve as a sequel to the movie, and Warwick Davis is expected to return as Willow Ufgood.
