Awesome news from Variety. Ron Howard & Solo writer Jonathan Kasdan are in negotiations for a Disney+ sequel series to Lucasfilm's 1988 Willow. If this goes through, Warwick Davis will be returning to play the lead character. My big question is will Val Kilmer return to revise his part as Mad Martegan? Hands down since 1988 my favorite character of this whole thing. I totally hope this gets green lit. What about y'all? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Jon Favreau's upcoming, live-action Star Wars series is my main reason for caring about Disney's plans for a streaming service, & now we know exactly when it will take place. Favreau told Nerdist at the Solo premiere that the unnamed series takes place 7 years after Return of the Jedi's Battle of Endor. The series will introduce brand new characters to the Star Wars universe, and will be a Segway between Jedi and The Force Awakens. Probably like Rebels in between 3 & 4, except falling in between 6 & 7 in the same ballpark worth of time if I had to guess. I'm sure we'll see some familiar faces along the way as well. This is exciting. I'm hoping we really get a feel of the hows & whys to the Resistance & the First Order in this. What do y'all think? Are you ready for this series?

This is awesome! Jon Favreau, the man who brought us Iron-Man, The Jungle Book, & soon to come Lion King has just been attached to write/produce a Star Wars TV series for Disney's upcoming streaming service. I love this guy! As an actor & a director he's amazing. He'll be working with a bunch of directors & writers throughout the series. As usual as of late, this is all we get. He'll be overseeing the series as a whole, we just don't know when, where, or what in the galaxy far, far away we're dealing with yet. I'll definitely be watching this one, & that means yes, Disney you have my money for your streaming service. What do y'all think of Favreau heading up a whole Star Wars series?
