As Willow on Disney Plus coalesces into its final form, casting changes see the prince’s twin sister and princess Cailee Spaeny replaced by Ruby Cruz in what’s described as “an extensive recasting process”.

Deadline is reporting that Lucasfilm’s upcoming Willow sequel series has undergone a casting change, with Castle Rock actress Ruby Cruz replacing Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising) in one of the three lead roles after what is described as “an extensive recasting process”.

Created by Jonathan Kasdan (Solo: A Star Wars Story) who serves as co-showrunner alongside Wendy Mericle (Arrow), the sequel to the Ron Howard-directed cult 80s fantasy will see Warwick Davis reprising his title role as the reluctant hero Willow Ufgood, while Cruz joins fellow new additions Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals), Erin Kellyman (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: Far From Home).

Willow is shooting this year, with Solo writer Jon Kasdan serving as co-showrunner and Warwick Davis returning to the role of Willow Ufgood after over 30 years.
