Willow series happening at Disney Plus

Ron Howard said Kasdan “kept hounding” him about Willow while they were filming Solo, and also that Kasdan was “hounding” LucasFilm president, Kathleen Kennedy.
“We’re in discussions about developing a Willow television show for the Disney Plus,” Howard confirmed at the time. “And I think it’d be a great way to go. In fact, George [Lucas] always talked about the possibility of a Willow series, and it’d be great and more intimate, and built around that character and some of the others.”
The 1988 fantasy movie, written by George Lucas, starred Warwick Davis as the titular character who has said he would like to return for the series. The flick also starred Val Kilmer as Madmartigan and Joanne Whalley as Sorsha.
