People are already looking forward to the planned Willow series that is set to air on Disney+. But what exactly can we expect from the new show based on the beloved fantasy classic? Ron Howard has shared some interesting new details about his upcoming project.

Howard recently spoke to Collider where he was asked about the Willow series. Interestingly, the director confirmed that although Jon Kasdan is already working on it, he is still unsure if he will be involved in the show.

"We are developing Willow for Disney Plus," Howard said. "And I don't know about directing or not, but Jon Kasdan is writing, he's very passionate about it, great job. We don't have a green light yet, but if it goes, I'll certainly want to roll up my sleeves and be a part of that, because that would be great, to revisit that world."

It's still unclear if Howard could fit the project into his busy schedule. However, he is glad that someone like Kasdan is taking charge since he believes that the screenwriter has a passion for the job.

"…in this world of these event series, they really do look to the showrunners and the key creatives to tell them their vision," Howard said. "It's one of the reasons why TV has gotten so good, is that they really are looking at the showrunners as authors of something that they're deeply passionate about. And Jon is deeply passionate about Willow, which tickles me to no end."

We're delighted to know that Howard trusts Kasdan with the project. Unfortunately, it also sounds like the series is still in its early stages. Hopefully, we'll be getting more updates on the show really soon.

The Willow series has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
