It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, we are learning more about the upcoming Willow sequel series on Disney Plus. 

While the show has been rumored for a while, Disney and Lucasfilm finally today confirmed that it is happening. The series will serve as a sequel to the 1988 Ron Howard film. While he is not directing the series, Howard is returning to produce the series and Warwick Davis is back to play Willow. No word yet on who else from the film will reprise their roles just yet. 

The pilot of the series will be directed by Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu. The series will be show run by Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle. The series will be produced by Howard's Imagine Television and Lucasfilm's head honcho Kathleen Kennedy. It will be Lucasfilm's first non-Star Wars related production since 2015. Production is expected to begin next year in Wales and we can't wait to see what they come up with.
