Will There Be a Willow Season 2 on Disney+?

Notably missing from the “Willow” series was Val Kilmer, who played the roguish but heroic Madmartigan in the original film. Unfortunately, he had to sit out filming due to health concerns, although there were hints that he could have potentially appeared in future seasons. Warwick Davis reprised his title role as Willow, and was joined by franchise newcomers Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Amer Chadha-Patel, and Tony Revolori as a crew of young people who set out on a dangerous quest to mirror Willow’s own when he was younger.

It’s not a massive surprise that the series was canceled, given both its confusing fan reception and the greater state of things at Lucasfilm, where “Willow” originates. After all, the company is currently extremely busy with all of its “Star Wars” shows and future movies, and spreading themselves too thin with another franchise is risky. That being said, the series did well enough with critics and has a loyal fanbase, so it’s possible we will see some kind of “Willow” follow-up in the future — just maybe not as another season of a TV series.

“Willow” was show-run by Jonathan Kasdan (who also wrote the pilot) and Wendy Mericle. George Lucas, who wrote the story that the franchise was based on and executive produced the original film, was involved in spirit only, as he gave Kasdan his blessing to do more with “Willow” years ago. Both “Willow” the film and the series are available to stream on Disney+.
