Warwick Davis has revealed that informal discussions were held on the potential for a sequel to Lucasfilm’s Willow on the set of Solo with George Lucas and Ron Howard.
Warwick Davis revealed a roundtable conversation between himself, George Lucas, Ron Howard, Jon Kasdan and Kathleen Kennedy took place aboard the Millennium Falcon on the set of Solo in a recent interview with Cinema Blend.
That would be hugely exciting. Revisiting Willow as a character, now he’s older and wiser and perhaps even a better sorcerer, who knows by now, would be brilliant fun. I would absolutely love to do that. Ron and I we chatted about Willow quite a lot. Jon Kasdan who was obviously the screenwriter on Solo, he’s a pretty big fan of Willow, it’s one of the reasons he got into screenwriting and filmmaking. He and I talked a lot about where we could take Willow in the future.
I remember a particular day which was very special on Solo. I was working with the second unit and Ron, and I got a message through saying, “oh George [Lucas] is here today, he’d like to see you.” So I went on set, it was the day they were on the Falcon. I remember myself, George, Jon Kasdan, Kathy Kennedy all chatting about Willow. I would think “this is like the stars have aligned right here. If anybody’s going to get a sequel or something else made in regard to Willow, this is it and this is the time to do it.” Who knows, kind of watch this space, I guess.
Lets hope these discussions go beyond an informal chat, to production of a sequel to one of our much loved fantasy films.
