The live-action Willow series on Disney+ won’t be able to conclude its story after the company announced the cancellation of the show and its second season
Disney has taken heavy measures with Willow. The live-action series says goodbye forever with the cancellation of the second season. As was reported on Deadline, the decision was attributed to the reduction in spending on content within the production company, which seeks to boost its net profits.

The series concluded its first season on January 11, 2023. The eighth episode left several threads open for a possible continuation. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. At the moment You can watch it in full on Disney+.
Willow, the hallmark of Warwick Davis
The actor returned to the front page as the protagonist of this new edition of the fantasy epic. At MeriStation we had the opportunity to interview him as part of a round table. “My perception is that he is obviously older. Usually, you nurture your character with your own personality. As I've gotten older, Willow has, too," he confessed.
He recognized that the character he was playing was“older and wiser, just like me in real life”.

Instead of fighting and trying to keep us all young, I've tried to help give it more depth."
His leading role demanded a lot from him during filming, since he appears "in almost every scene". Of course, this didn’t hold him back: "I love challenges, I have lived my whole life facing challenges, so they are not new to me at all." You can read the full text by clicking on this link.
