......'Willow' on Disney+.......ordered to series......the original lead, Warwick Davis, will reprise his role......


........will take place 2 years after the movie.....



Willow Sequel Series a Go at Disney+, Warwick Davis to Reprise Title Role

.....Yet another story beloved by children of the 1980s is about to get another chapter.

Disney+ has ordered a tv series that will serve as a sequel to Willow, Ron Howard and George Lucas’ 1988 fantasy film about a farmer who finds himself wrapped up in an epic journey. The streaming service announced the series order Tuesday.

Warwick Davis, who played Willow Ufgood in the movie, will reprise his character in the TV series. The continuation will take place two years after the events of the film and will introduce new characters.

“So many fans have asked me over the years if Willow will make a return, and now I”m thrilled to tell them that he will indeed,” Davis said via statement. “Many have told me they grew up with Willow and that the film has influenced how they view heroism in our own world. If Willow Ufgood can represent the heroic potential in all of us, then he is a character I am extremely honored to reprise.”

In the film, Willow must keep a much-sought-after infant girl out of the clutches of the evil Queen Bavmorda, who believes the child will bring about the end of her dark reign. He is joined on his journey by Madmartigan, a fighter played by Val Kilmer (Top Gun).

Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) will executive-produce with showrunners Jonathan Kasdan (Solo), Wendy Mericle (Arrow) and Howard. Chu also will direct the pilot. Bob Dolman, who wrote the original film, will serve as a consulting producer. Lucasfilm will produce the series.

Umm... He's way more than 2 years older. I hope they don't attempt to digitally de-age him.

....someone said that he doesn't (currently) look that much older, so perhaps that is why they think it would be plausible.....

He looks pretty much the same from a slight distance (I think he may have been little more than a kid when he was in Willow), but I'm guessing the difference in age would show strongly in close-ups. Good genes and an advanced moisturizing regime will only help so much when 35 years are still 35 years any way you slice 'em.



Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.

Stop and think about this: If you're able to shout the words "I CAN'T BREATHE!!!" at considerable volume, then you have just proven to anyone listening that you can indeed breathe.

He was just 18/19 when he did Willow. He’s 50 now!
