Earlier this year, it was revealed that a new Willow sequel series for Disney+ was in the early stages and while speaking to Andy Cohen on his Radio Andy Sirius XM show, the film’s director Ron Howard revealed that the show is still in “active development”, however it hasn’t yet been given the green light.
He confirmed that the creative side of the series is still ongoing, stating “I was in a two-hour story meeting last night”. He went on to say:
“The writer Jon Kasdan is leading the charge. They have a great group of writers and it’s in very active development. The scripts are going great. So, they have to get through the season and the budget. And so forth, there’s no green light there yet, but I’m very optimistic about it. I love [Kasdan’s] take on it.”
Check out the interview clip below:
The show is still in the very early stages of development and hasn’t officially been given the go-ahead, so it will be a while before we see it.
The original Willow movie is available to stream on Disney+ now.
