When people name-check the best Ron Howard movies of his career, 1988's Willow rarely makes the conversation. But it's being talked about now with the possibility of a sequel finally in the works 30 years later.Movieweb.com reports that Howard – on the road these days promoting his directing work on Solo: A Star Wars Story – says a spin-off of Willow has been discussed."I don't want to give away too much, but there is a little talk of Willow," Howard said. "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."For those who need a refresher, Willow told the story of a daydreaming farmer (Warwick Davis as the title character) who reluctantly is recruited to protect the life of a baby (named Elora Danan) whose fate it is to save the universe – assuming she can escape the murderous wrath of an evil queen. Okay, okay, trust me. It's a better movie than it sounds.The original flick benefited from a story from George Lucas and lovable performances by Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Jean Marsh and Billy Barty.Movieweb points out that Davis, Howard and Star Wars maintain a special connection. Davis played one of the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi, and Howard has said Willow was often in his mind as he took over work on Solo.A spin-off also might not take the form of a feature-length movie and could instead be produced for one of the streaming services – much like YouTube Red's Cobra Kai.
