There’s been a lot of talk about Lucasfilm developing a sequel series to Ron Howard’s classic fantasy film Willow for Disney+. Well, it looks like the series is actually moving forward! Writer Jon Kasdan (Solo) recently shared a photo on Twitter revealing that the writer's room has officially been set up for the project!

That hat pinned up on the corkboard features the character Willow, and it says Willow, so it’s obviously what the project is. I’m extremely excited about this! I’m a huge fan of the original film ,and I’ve always wanted to see the story of Willow continue. Now, all these years later it looks like it’s actually going to happen!

Howard previously talked about the concept of developing a Willow sequel series saying, “I think it’d be a great way to go. In fact, George 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. And Jon Kasdan has, I think, an inspired take on it and it could be really, really cool.”

"It's a kind of a weird bit of news," Davis told SYFY WIRE in an interview with the Fandom Files podcast. "The internet has done its thing in kind of perpetuating that and kind of generating the excitement around it, which is good. There is development going on, but there's no kind of greenlit, here we go guys, this is happening. At this point, nothing's official, nothing's greenlit, nothing's a go. But we all have fingers firmly crossed and we're doing our best to make this happen for the fans because they've been there the whole time since 1988 when it came out."

It's that fan power that has brought the idea of continuing a one-off movie released 32 years ago this close to reality in the first place.

"What's lovely about Willow is that there's so much love for the film, so much excitement about the possibility of there being more Willow, and there has been for years and years and years," he says. "So now, when there's a little bit of work being done to actually develop this and make this something that will be a reality, the internet has got ahead of itself a little bit and the excitement of the fandom has got ahead of where we are."

Never did see Willow

Loved it when it first came out. I think I went to see it because Val Kilmer was in it.

It's honestly a very underrated movie. I just rewatched it the other day and enjoyed it immensely.

I loved that film, saw it a few times.
