Willow Showrunner breaks down the three volumes in a post-credits scene

The last episode of Willow streaming now on Disney+ and fans are hoping for future seasons. While the show hasn’t been renewed yet, there were some major cliffhangers in the finale, as well as a tease for a three-season plan in the post-credits scene. After the credits, a “Part I” book is placed on a shelf next to two more volumes. Showrunner Jonathan Kasdan recently spoke with io9 about the finale and broke the meaning of the books.

“Yeah, I mean, we’ve always kind of been in love with this idea that Willow existed as this book somewhere in a library that has been waiting to be opened for 35 years,” Kasdan explained of the three volumes. And it kind of sat on a shelf expecting someone to take it down. And certainly, as we told the story and got to the end of the story, we all knew and felt that where we ended up was definitely not the end of the story. And so it was a throw of the hat over the wall, if you will, to kind of say, “That one is really there [more].’ And what you should always do when you’re surrounded by people you enjoy working with is start talking about where it’s going. And we were already in that conversation when we finished shooting a year ago, and it’s certainly continued in the intervening year.

Kasdan continued, “The thought was that the movie and the first season are part one, so that the movie kind of serves as a prologue to the first part and each part would have a similar shape.” He added: “You have to see where [Elora] came from and what she’s dealing with and sure, yeah, it feels like an epic story. But it’s also partial, I’m from movies and three companies. So one of the guiding principles of the first season of this show was that it would work in a lot of ways, like the first act of a movie where you set up your characters and your conflicts and then hopefully you’re able to do some of the other parts of it to explore [in act two]and then finally give a real solution [in act three]. I certainly went into this thinking that the story I hope to tell would be more than these eight hours, but that it would be a finite story and not be a series that could last 12 or 15 seasons.

Will Willow Getting a second season?

“Honestly, I have no idea,” Kasdan said io9 about a renewal period. “We’ve never been in a dialogue like this before. My marching orders have always been, ‘Go on, young man. Keep coming up with these stories.’ And I’m definitely ready and I love everyone involved, so that’s not a hard job to work on.” He added: “Yes, we have been working very, very hard and we are very optimistic. I mean, sure, in one form or another we’d love nothing more than to go ahead and tell more.”

The first season of Willow is now available to stream on Disney+.
