Warwick Davis Would Love to Return in Ron Howard’s ‘Willow 2’



Warwick Davis Would Love to Return in Ron Howard's 'Willow 2'

It’s been quite some time since we last heard anything regarding Ron Howard’s plans to make a sequel to Willow, the classic fantasy film starring Warwick Davis. Well, today we have a slight update for you.


Speaking with Cinema Blend this past Monday, the English actor revealed that he would love to return as an older Willow character in a future sequel.

Warwick Davis: “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.

Davis believes now is the perfect time to make a Willow 2.

He continued: “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.

It’ll be interesting to see if this flick ever gets off the ground. The Good news is that both Ron Howard and Warwick Davis want to return for a sequel.

Stay tuned or more updates soon.
