Deadline exclusively reports that Disney+ has given Willow the axe after its first season. Ron Howard’s 1988 cult classic fantasy film inspired the continuation series of the same name on the service, with Warwick Davis returning as the titular dwarf/sorcerer. But the show’s numbers apparently didn’t justify its budget.
Is anyone surprised by this? I didn’t even watch the show after what people like The Critical Drinker and Thor Skywalker said. I haven’t heard good things about this series from anyone, and honestly, I have to question who wanted a Willow spin-off in the first place. I like Warwick Davis, but it sounds like his character got the shaft for younger leads, anyway. I normally don’t like to laugh at the misery of others, but this failure was deserved.
But what do you think? Drop us a comment below!
