This week, Ron Howard was at the Sundance Film Festival promoting his new movie and spoke with Colider about the upcoming Willow sequel series for Disney+ series.
He confirmed that the series is still in the early stages, but wants to be involved in the project.
“We are developing Willow for Disney Plus. 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 he went on to discuss how the length of a new series is decided:
“…in this world of these event series, they really do look to the showrunners and the key creatives to tell them their vision. 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.”
Only recently, Willow actor, Warwick Davis, spoke about the series not yet been given the green light, but was hoping it would be happening, which Ron Howard also spoke about him returning and confirming that the series will be a sequel to the original movie:
Warwick Davis is going to be in it and so yes, I think it’s safe to say it’s decades later
