Willow series is not canceled and Volume II is planned, says creator Jon Kasdan | TV series

It’s been a rollercoaster week for pasture fans. A few days ago, reports surfaced that the Disney+ sequel series to Ron Howard and George Lucas’ 1988 fantasy film has been canceled after just one season on the streaming service. But in a lengthy statement, showrunner Jon Kasdan opened up about what’s actually happening with the show — and it’s more complicated than a simple cancellation. The good news is that there may be a lot more story on the way. You can read them full three-part explanation here, but essentially, Kasdan explains that the show won’t go straight back into production. But, he says, it’s “absolutely not” the case that future episodes will never be filmed – with plans for Volume II (and seemingly more beyond).

“A decision was made last week to free our main cast for other series opportunities that may arise for them in the coming year,” he writes. “With all the television and film production going on around the world, it feels unfair to limit an actor’s availability without having a clear idea of ​​when you’ll need them again. It’s further belittled by the simple reality that the scripts we’ve been working on require just as many actors with whom we don’t have such a contractual relationship.” As Kasdan points out, there is currently an industry-wide slowdown in streaming series production pasture will not be filmed next year. “But here’s what’s equally true: With the enthusiastic and unwavering support of Lucasfilm and Disney, we have developed and written what we hope will be a hilariously fun, richer, darker and better VOLUME II, aimed at the… Characters and story builds on our first eight chapters (The Wyrm Lives!)”

There’s a lot more context and explanation in Kasdan’s full statement – but it concludes with something even more hopeful for fans. An image of a bookshelf with leather bound spines showing not only a “Volume I” and a “Volume II”, but also “Volume III”. “The little movie I love called Willow,” Kasdan points out, “didn’t get a well-deserved sequel in 35 years.” Then maybe there’s more magic in the tank…
