We’re getting a sequel to Willow!

Before Director Ron Howard collaborated with Lucasfilms in Solo: A Star Wars Story, out May 25th, he first worked with the George Lucas in the 80’s classic Willow. Well, while Howard was speaking to Comicbook.com he made mention that there’s been some talk of Willow but it wouldn’t be Willow 2. Instead they would follow Elora Danan, the baby Willow became caretaker of in the cult classic, and of course Willow played by Warwick Davis would be heavily involved. If this is so… and this possibility could become a reality… Maybe we’ll get a fun cameo from Val Kilmer as Madmartigan!

You guys, just when we thought the Internet was doomed to let big name companies have free reign of how we get our info… The United States Senate voted this week that the internet, and the way we know it, for now will stay the same thanks to you! The ones who called and voiced their thoughts on why this should stay the way it is. It’s a great win for the battle, but the war isn’t quite over yet! We still need to convince the house majority to leave it and that requires more people getting involved.
