Ron Howard believes that fans of the original Willow movie that came out back in 1988, the movie about a journey to the far corners of your imagination, to a land of myth and magic may finally get a sequel.
Read on to see what director Ron Howard is saying about a Willow sequel…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest on a possible Willow 2 movie in the works according to Solo director Ron Howard who believes fans are ready to watch again.
Sorry, but its been so long for us, we can’t remember Willow at all. It was 30 years ago, and now Ron Howard wants to make a sequel?
Here is what the Star Wars director said regaring the Lord of the Rings-esque fantasy epic full of ILM special effects and scenes of Val Kilmer hamming it up.
I don’t want to give away too much, but there is a little talk of Willow…We wouldn’t call it Willow 2, I think it would focus a lot on Elora Danan, although Willow would have to be significantly involved.
Based on Howard’s comment, the potential Willow sequel would focus on a grown-up Elora Danan.
I thought about that movie a lot as I was working on Solo because there are certain scenes, especially around some of the Madmartigan stuff, was reminiscent of a character with that kind of swagger and bravado. And also some of the humor around some of the action in Willow was something I inspired [sic] to get into Solo.
If you forgot, Willow was about Elora Danan is an infant who is prophesied to bring about the end of the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda. The baby is rescued by Willow (Warwick Davis), who then must protect the child from danger with the help of mercenary Madmartigan (Val Kilmer) and warrior Sorsha (Joanne Whalley).
