Willow, the cult-classic Ron Howard fantasy film, might find a second life as a television series airing on Disney+.

During the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via ComicBook.com), Howard confirmed that Solo co-writer Jon Kasdan is discussing the possibility of resurrecting Willow as a TV show on Disney+. Howard stated:

“There are some really serious discussions going on with Jon Kasdan, who was one of the writers of Solo, who kept hounding me about Willow the whole time we were shooting and also hounding Kathy Kennedy. We’re in discussions about developing a Willow television show for the Disney+. And 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.”

This is the first update on the project in quite some time. About a year ago, Howard mentioned that a Willow spinoff was a possibility, perhaps a movie following Elora Danan as an adult. Not long after, the director stated that a sequel was being seriously considered, but since then, there’s been little word as to whether or not Willow would make his big screen return. Now, it would seem that he might be hitting the small screen instead.

Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer both stared in the original Willow, which came out 1988. It is unknown if Kilmer will reprise his role from the original in the Disney+ series.
