    Willow fans in the UK with Film4 might want to keep an eye on their schedule. They are showing Willow at 4PM today but they do tend to repeat.

    Kasdan Jr symbolizes nepotism. Thanks to the connections and authority of his father, he was able to participate in the writing of SW, Indy (luckily fired) and now he got into Willow. Check out this guy's own work. He wrote and directed two questionable films before Solo and nothing else. So I'm very wary of the prospect of this show.

    I thought Trump was nepotism’s poster boy. Or maybe Henry viii. Turns out it’s a screenwriter’s son. Anyway surely the main reason to be wary is that it’s a continuation of Willow. You know, Willow.

    Larry Kasdan not only a screenwriter, but a pretty big name in the film industry. Larry credits / connections in the film business, his contributions to OT and Raiders, gives Jonathan the job. Not his talent / ability. His both pre-Lucasfilm films weren't very good. Moreover, first of these films was produced by father.

    His older brother Jake is at least a solid director / producer. John is just a hacker, who did not show himself in any way to give him the writing of sequels / spin-offs of cult franchises.

    I am hoping Jonathan Kasdan has a son so he can write SW movies as well.

    so I'm thinking this will be like DisneyPlus PG/PG13 level branded Game of Thrones/Lord of the Rings style. But Willow which Disney LFL owns. But hey bringing back Warwick Davis for anything is grand. Kind of wish that Howard would direct the pilot but cool to see he's an EP on it though.

    Anyway Madmartigan or we walk. He's almost more important to the movie than Willow! (well Willow is in almost every scene but Madmartigan does most of the stuff)

    Awesome news. Really can't wait. We're bloody getting a sequel to Willow (not counting those novels).

    This is kinda like the Star Wars EU being blasted out all over again, isn't it? That's why I bought those Willow novels I can't remember decades ago where he changed his name.

    I really don’t understand LFL’s obsession with Jon Kasdan. It also really sucks that Val Kilmer is sick since he was awesome in the movie.

    Frankly, I wish they would do a sequel to "Solo".

    This and I'd die to see their games being transormed into movies. Maniac Mansion, Zac McKracken, Indy - Fate of Atlantis or even Monkey Island.

    Kind of weird that Willow fans are now closer to getting a continuation from Disney/ Lucasfilm than Indy fans

    Sounds good. If Willow has the kinda of quality as Dark Crystal series the show could be wonderful.

    Good news I like Willow. Speaking of Ron Howard I am binge watching Happy Days. has anyone played the Willow video game? It's really good. It was on NES and in the arcade.
