The “Solo: A Star Wars Story” director talked about a possible revival with MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast that he and Lucas have toyed with the idea of a “Willow” television series.

“I think it’d be a great way to go,” Howard said. “In fact, George always talked about the possibility of a ‘Willow’ series, and it’d be great and more intimate, and built around that character and some of the others. And Jon Kasdan has, I think, an inspired take on it and it could be really, really cool.”

“Willow” starred Warwick Davis as a dwarf who was given the task of protecting a special baby from an evil Queen and Val Kilmer as Mad Martigan.

The flick first premiered in 1988 but didn’t receive the cult following until years later.

Disney+, a Netflix-type streaming service, is set to launch later this year in the United States.
