Stephen Woolfenden To Step In To Direct “Willow”

Lucasfilm is working on a new “Willow” sequel series for Disney+ but it has seen a variety of directors and now we see that Outlander director Stephen Woolfenden will step in to direct the first two episodes.

The series was going to be directed by Jon M. Chu but having a new baby had Jonathan Entwistle stepping in for Chu. Due to scheduling issues Jonathan Entwistle had to step away as well passing the directing baton to Stephen Woolfenden.

Through all of this, production for the series hasn’t be delayed and we should see it on Disney+ next year.

All-new characters will be introducted to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters, and welcomes back its namesake hero, Willow Ufgood, performed once again by the unmatchable Warwick Davis. Also appearing in the series will be Amer Chadha-Patel, Ruby Cruz, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori and Erin Kellyman.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
