He also posted a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“With its epic world of swords, sorcery and adventure, Willow captivated and influenced so many.
“I’m excited to be going on this journey and working with Jon and Wendy to create something that is both deeply rooted in that original film and also a fresh, funny and charming addition to the beloved story. To be able to play within the world so painstakingly crafted by Ron back in ’88 is a dream come true for me.”
