No Season 2 for the fantasy drama.
March 15, 2023
It is being reported that Disney+ has cancelled Willow after just one season. Coming two months after the fantasy drama wrapped its 8-episode freshman run, the news is not a surprise, as it likely relates to the company's recent comments about its streaming strategy moving forward.
Just days ago, CEO Bob Iger said in an interview that Disney would be rethinking its focus on exclusive original content, relating that they may resume making TV shows and films for rival networks and platforms. He stated that he hopes for a more curated approach similar to HBO, with a focus on fewer high-quality shows built around its major brands in an effort to achieve profitability.
Serving as a sequel to the classic 1988 film of the same name, Willow is set in an enchanted land of breathtaking beauty. The story follows an aspiring magician from a Nelwyn village and an infant girl destined to unite the realms, who together helped destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness. Now, in a magical world where trolls, sorcerers, and other mystical creatures roam, the adventure continues when an unlikely group of heroes embarks on a dangerous quest where they face their inner demons and come together to save their world.

How embarrassing LOL you sound completely triggered that your awful woke show got cancelled. It's ok, you've got a thousand other garbage woke shows to watch on TV.
Not without Val

I agree with everyone saying this wouldn't work without Val. He gave the original movie so much personality. Without him, it has no heart (no offense to Warwick Davis, who is an excellent actor).

So thanks to all the "woke" posters showing the blatant racism. It makes it so much easier to spot people that use to hide behind the racist beliefs. Now, since people want to make this comment thread political, thanks to Trump you bigots are in plain site and no longer afraid to hide. Because all "woke" really means to you is diverse. If it's not all white all the time than it's woke. If it's a religion that's not yours it's woke. If it's anything you don't like than it's woke. Maybe it's time you people should actually wake up. Because the same people that are feeding you this "woke" narrative are doing absolutely nothing for you. Well other than letting you be outwardly racist. Eventually the "woke" fad is going to fade away. I mean damn just go back to the hoods in public.

The show wasn't that bad if you skip all the WOKE BULLSHIT.
But unfortunately if you do that you only have 5 mins of watchable content each episode.

Not surprised, no Val Kilmer, no thanks. Maybe if Disney stops changing established stories and characters.

Disney being woke backfired. Loved the original. They should redo Mickeys Clubhouse where Mickey is gender Neutral and Minnie is in love with Daisy and Goofy identifies as a cat . Seems like something they would push.

it was trash, so not surprised and glad it didn't destroy the source material any further.
