Willow Announced as a Disney+ Series

Disney officially announced this past week that “Willow”, a new series based on the magical world that George Lucas created in the movie “Willow”, will be joining the Disney+ line up.


WhatsOnDisneyPlus explains that this series is the first time Lucasfilms will venture into a non-Star Wars story since 2015. The Disney+ series of “Willow” will take place years after the original events of the film. It will bring all-new characters but welcomes back the namesake hero, Willow Ufgood.


Many fans are excited for Willow to return as they have grown up with this hero and are looking forward to seeing what Lucasfilms can bring to the story. WhatsOnDisneyPlus says actor Warwick Davis states, “If Willow Ufgood can represent the heroic potential in all of us, then he is a character I am extremely honored to reprise” and we couldn’t agree more.

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.
