Personal Update on Willow for@disneyplusthat Ive been working on...pic.twitter.com/eS7uurCMfgJon M.Chu (@jonmchu)January 11, 2021
Years ago, I had heard a pitch on the Screen Junkies youtube channel for a show or movie where the thirty-year-old warrior queen Elora Danan (raised by Mad Martigan and Sorsha) and her chief sorcerer, Nelwyn ambassador, and oldest friend Willow go an a quest to defeat a new evil. I hope this show resembles that pitch, but I suspect it won't.
