It’s not all bad news for Jon M. Chu, who will go on to direct Wicked for Universal.

Entwistle, pilot director and series executive producer, shared his thoughts on the project in a recent statement:

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.

The series stars Warwick Davis, who returns to reprise his role as Willow Ufgood from the original 1988 film. Ellie Bamber and Cailee Spaeny also star.

“Willow” is expected to begin shooting this spring in Wales.
