The first two episodes of willow are currently streaming on Disney+ and from what I’ve seen a lot of people seem to be enjoying it, which is awesome! I was personally disappointed with a few aspects of the series, mostly regarding the contemporary aspects of it. I’ve rewatched episodes with my family, and they’re enjoying it, and I actually enjoyed watching it more with my family. Weird how it works.
Anyway, for those of you wondering if there will be a second season, producer Roopesh Parekh recently spoke to CB and teased the possibility of a season 2, saying, “I think we’re finishing this story, but we’re absolutely leaving a lot of open angles for the future.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if Willow got a second season, especially since the showrunner Jon Kasdan left the door open for Val Kilmer to return and reprise his role as Madmartigan. Parekh went on to talk about working with Lucasfilm for the first time saying:
“Oh my God. When I got the phone call, I thought it was a prank. No, it was so wonderful. I think Lucasfilm, the heart of everything they do is storytelling, innovation and technological advancement. And when this storyline landed, it was all of those things rolled into one. And Willow, I think she always stood out to me as a young boy watching her. It was always so different from Star Wars or Indiana Jones. I love shooting for those, of course. There was just something great about this unlikely hero stumbling, falling, getting back up and learning magic and sorcery and that just makes it fun.
“So when I got the call about it, I was like, ‘Is Warwick coming back? And they were like, ‘Yeah’ he absolutely is. It was like, ‘This is going to be amazing.’ And then I think of Jon Kasdan, who is just a phenomenal writer and fantastic showrunner, who almost 35 years ago watched it here in this theater. That’s when he first fell in love with it… It’s us coming home in many ways. And for Jon, it’s a full circle. But I think he had such a passion and an infectious enthusiasm for this project. It spread through the cast and crew when we were doing it.
When previously speaking about developing the project, Kasdan explained, “It’s a whole new thing. From the moment I got involved in star wars with George [Lucas]with Kathy [Kennedy], with my dad, I saw an opportunity here with Willow to bring that story back. I knew Warrick was eager to do it, to replay it, and then when Ron came along and worked on Solo with us, he was just as eager too, and we let the momentum of that allow us to continue that story that the three of us absolutely loved it – which I loved as a fan and which they loved as a work experience. I just thought, ‘How can I do this, and how can I give him the same fidelity that we tried to give Solo?’ There are deep cuts to the Willow show, and references to the tabletop game and references to the novelization. We went deep, and I hope the real fan enjoys it.”
The story began when an aspiring wizard, played by Warwick Davis, “is taken on a journey to protect a young Empress Elora Danan and defeat the evil Queen Bavmorda of their world of Andowyne. Now the story continues with Davis reprising his lead role, as he leads an unlikely team of heroes on a quest to protect Andowyne from an even greater foe than they ever imagined possible.
The series also features Erin Kellyman (Solo: A Star Wars Story, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Ellie Bamber (nocturnal animals), Ruby Cruz (Easttown Mare), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Dempsey Bryk (The work), talisa garcia (Serve and Protect, Baptist), and game of thrones actress Sellers Rosabell Laurenti. christian slater also featured in the series. and we see it for the first time in this featurette.
