Our team are overjoyed with the announcement that there will be reprisal of the much loved Willow as a series on Disney+. Disney are a part of our licensing portfolio and this allows us to create unique designs using all your favourite characters from the Disney world.
An epic period fantasy series with a modern sensibility set in an enchanted land of breathtaking beauty, Willow features a diverse international cast with Jonathan Kasdan, Ron Howard, Wendy Mericle, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan serving as executive producers. The story began with an aspiring magician from a Nelwyn village and an infant girl destined to unite the realms, who together helped destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. Now, in a magical world where brownies, sorcerers, trolls, and other mystical creatures flourish, the adventure continues, as an unlikely group of heroes set off on a dangerous quest to places far beyond their home, where they must face their inner demons and come together to save their world.
Over the years, there have been talks of a sequel to Willow. In April 2005, at Star Wars Celebration III, George Lucas and Warwick Davis commented that a television series acting as a sequel was within the realm of possibility. Davis has also expressed interest in a second theatrical instalment, and said he has a story idea. In May 2019, Ron Howard revealed that he and Jon Kasdan were in “really serious discussions” about developing a Willow television show for Disney’s upcoming video on-demand service Disney+. In January, 2020, it was announced that the series would be set several decades after the movie, that it would be written by screenwriter and Lucasfilm collaborator Jonathan Kasdan, and that it would feature Warwick Davis. On December 10, 2020, on Disney Investor Day, Disney announced that filming would begin in March 2021 in Wales, and the series would premiere in 2022
The series is set to release November 30th 2022 on Disney+
