Director Ron Howard and screenwriter Jon Kasdan have both been working on a sequel to the 1988 action-fantasy film Willow, with the sequel a possible contender to made for Disney+. Now Kevin Pollak who played Rool in the original film has expressed his interest in returning to the role.
“If I’m asked, yes, I’d love to do it. It has to be considered a possibility simply because Ron Howard eventually tweeted that he was interested in seeing where Willow is at all these years later. It went from rumors to his showing some interest. I’ve not heard of any production, and I’ve not heard of any scripts being written. When Ron said that he wanted to pick up where all these years later with the same actor, Warwick Davis, as Willow, that was the first hint that the Brownies, Rick Overton and I, may also be invited back.”
“I’ve not heard anything since. I would be 100% open to it, of course. It was an incredibly fun part to play. I’d love to do that again, absolutely.”
