    Disney has been trying to find it's own 'Lord of the Rings' like franchise ever since the films proved to be massive hits.

    With Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm, could they have an interest in the world of Willow? The characters and world of Willow is rich with untapped potential. I thought the NES game explored this world as well as an 8-bit game could, but the Shadow Dawn Chronicles could give Disney the opportunity to take an unknown franchise, and make it their own.

    Chronicles of Narnia was too big and too well known, Disney coudn't brand it the way they had hoped. The Shadow Dawn Chronicles would need impressive screenplays with great writers to develop the the world of Willow, but it could be the franchise they are looking for.

    With the number of films that Lucasfilm is hoping to make now that they've been acquired by Disney, this must be in consideration... Especially since the lead character is a teenage girl... sounds like Disney to me!

    From Willow Wiki:
    Lucas outlined the Chronicles of the Shadow War trilogy to follow the film and hired comic book writer/novelist Chris Claremont to adapt them into a series of books. They take place about fifteen years after the original film and feature the now teenage Elora Danan as the central character.

    Worthy of discussion? Could Disney have Shadow Dawn films on their mind? Or is this wishful thinking of a Willow fan...
