Fans Not Happy With Disney Plus 'Willow' Series

Willow Season 2 is not happening, and star Warwick Davis doesn’t know what to tell the fans.

The series has been canceled and Disney has yanked Season 1 from its streaming service.

Warwick Davis took to his 664k+ followers on Twitter to offer he is embarrassed in regards to being questioned by fans why they can’t watch the series.

“I meet lovely people on a daily basis who are fans of #Willow, who are the reason the @DisneyPlus Series was made. Please tell me @WaltDisneyCo, what do I say to these subscribers when they ask why they can’t watch the series any more? #embarrassing,” he tweeted.

Why is there no Willow Season 2?

There is no Willow Season 2 because the show wasn’t watched by a lot of people.

That’s also why the series isn’t streaming anymore on Disney+.

If the Willow series was a success, obviously Disney wouldn’t have canceled it and yanked it from Disney+.

Back in December of 2022 following the first two episodes airing, Samba TV released viewership numbers which showed Willow to be the least-watched show on Disney+.

What happened with Willow?

What happened is the series took a Last Jedi approach to the beloved original movie.

Just prior to the start of Season 1, Warwick Davis revealed he took inspiration from Mark Hamill in The Last Jedi.

“The one thing I took note of in particular was Mark Hamill returning to Luke Skywalker and how he went about the approach for that,” Davis told The Hollywood Reporter at the time. “I thought he was really interesting, and it wasn’t the expected approach, certainly. He came at it from quite a different angle, and I also did the same. I noticed that Mark didn’t try to play the character younger. He just leaned into his more mature years, and that’s really what I did as Willow.”

Well, we all know how The Last Jedi turned out, and we also know Mark Hamill wasn’t happy with Luke in the film.

As I previously went over, Willow is barely in the first episode the story follows the LGBTQ princess who is set to get married to a loser prince, where her twin brother, the best swordsman in the realm, gets kidnapped, and a band of weak misfits who aren’t capable of much of anything – let alone battle – is off to save him (the best fighter, the most seasoned veteran of the bunch, the male Knight gets killed off right away.

Does that sound like a recipe for success? No, it’s a recipe for disaster.

The person behind Willow, Jonathan Kasdan, also wrote Solo, which bombed as well and led to Disney pulling back on releasing Star Wars movies.
