Back in 2018 it was revealed that Ron Howard and his Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan were looking to revisit the world of Willow for a TV series sequel to the cult classic 1988 fantasy, with Kasdan subsequently revealed in January of this year that writing was underway on the project.
Well, we’ve now got another update direct from Howard himself, who has revealed during a Q&A event that the series remains in development, and while it doesn’t have an official green light as yet, some “tentative” pre-production work is already underway.
“Well, if I say anything too concrete it’s gonna go viral because anytime I say anything about Willow, people take it all very seriously,” said Howard. “I will say that, let’s see…what can I say? It’s still in development. It doesn’t have a green light. Warwick Davis is thrilled by it and if we are lucky enough for it to go, he would come back as Willow.”
“We are far enough along that in a very tentative way, locations are beginning to be scouted, and we don’t know where we’re going to shoot, but we have gotten some research photos back from Wales,” he continued. “It’s nice to think about where our old knock bar was, and again no idea if we’re gonna get to make the show but we’re having a wonderful time developing the scripts under Jonathan Kasdan who is leading the charge.”
