‘Willow’ is the first Lucasfilm project to be cancelled on Disney+ despite the first season finishing on a cliff hanger and some plotlines left unfinished. No reason for the cancellation was given but the show failed to find it’s place on the cultural landscape even though it was critically well received, scoring 83% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The show, a follow up to Ron Howard’s film of the same name from 1988, saw Warwick Davis reprise his title role as Willow Ufgood and co-starred Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Amer Chadha-Patel, and Tony Revolori. Jonathan Kasdan wrote the pilot and served as co-showrunner alongside Wendy Mericle, Howard and writer Bob Dolman.
Man, that stinks!
