‘Willow’ Not 100% A Go For Disney+ According to Warwick Davis


A couple of weeks ago the internet was all excited because writer Jon Kasdan had posted a picture on Twitter that said “The office is open.”  It seemed that Disney and Lucasfilm had stared working on a new Willow project for Disney+.


But now Willow Star, Warwick Davis, has set the record straight with Inverse.

“The internet has got a little bit ahead of us here. There’s a lot of work on development and working out what this potentially could be, but there’s no definite green light, go, we’re doing this. There’s a lot of work going on. The right people have come together. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of goodwill from the right people and also from the fans. I think that’s what’s really so heartwarming is the enthusiasm from people around the world. So, yeah, no definite news there. I think there’s a firm chance that this is going to be something that becomes a reality. Definitely.”

So nothing has officially been green lit to move forward yet with Lucasfilm or Disney+.

For those that don’t know Willow was a Lucasfilm movie from 1988, staring Davis as the title character, as well as Val Kilmer. George Lucas wrote the screenplay and Ron Howard directed it.

There were sequel books that were written in the time since the first film, but there’s no word on if any of that would be used, or if Disney will do what it does and just throw all the established cannon out the window, like they did with Star Wars.

For those of us rooting for a new Willow project, I’m sure if they weren’t convinced before the fan excitement all over the internet should go a long way to get the light to turn green.

We will keep you posted as we learn more!
