It has only taken 30 years, but Ron Howard says that there are finally talks of Willow 2 now that the director has finished Solo: A Star Wars Story. The first Willow movie, directed by Howard, came out in 1988 and was not the smash hit that Lucasfilm had been hoping for. However, it has gained a massive cult audience since its release and many fans aren't even aware that it wasn't a huge moneymaker.
Howard also reveals that the story for the sequel would focus on the character Elora Danan, the infant that Willow (Warwick Davis) comes across in the original film. He explains:
"I don't want to give away too much, but there is a little talk of Willow. We wouldn't call it Willow 2, I think it would focus a lot on Elora Danan, although Willow would have to be significantly involved."
