In the 1980s, audiences were given a wide variety of films, ranging from “Back to the Future” to “The Breakfast Club,” many of which have become indelible parts of popular culture and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. When it comes to the fantastical side of things, there are going to be a lot of viewers who say that Willow still has a place in their hearts after all of these years have passed.
The action film, which was released in 1988 and was directed by Ron Howard, has steadily built up a following among members of the cult film community.
Its fandom has long held out hope for a continuation and their prayers have finally been answered; not in the form of a movie sequel, but a TV series. This sequel series, which was created by Jonathan Kasdan and premiered on Disney+ on November 30, 2022, picks up the story 20 years after the events of the first installment.
With original cast members mingling with fresh additions, the show focus on a group of six heroes who embark upon a quest to save the world from the clutches of evil. We regret to inform you that you will not be able to watch the journey in its entirety in one sitting; therefore, let’s discuss the Willow episode 3 release date as well as the schedule for Disney+.
When will Willow episode 3 be available, and what is the schedule for Disney+?
On Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, Episode 3 of Willow will make its world premiere for the first time ever exclusively on Disney+.
In spite of the fact that the first two episodes debuted together on the 30th of November, subsequent episodes will each make their debut on their own on Wednesdays moving forward.
In total, there will be a total of only eight episodes, and you can view the complete Willow series on Disney+.
schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, November 30, 2022: Episodes 1 and 2, respectively
Wednesday, December 7th, 2022 will be the day of Episode 3.
Wednesday, December 14th, 2022 will be the day of Episode 4.
Wednesday, December 21st, 2022 will be the day of Episode 5.
Wednesday, December 28th, 2022 will be the day of Episode 6.
Wednesday, January 4, 2023 will be the day of Episode 7.
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 will be the day of Episode 8.
Despite the fact that the project is not being marketed as a mini-series, it is important to point out that Willow has not yet been renewed for a second season. In spite of this, it is highly likely that the viewership numbers will be analyzed on a weekly basis before a decision regarding renewal is made.
“That’s very up to date and very out of the ordinary.”
Recently, Jonathan gave an interview to ScreenRant in which he discussed how to appeal to audiences that had not seen the original movie:
“… being a fan of the movie, it’s not hard for me to lean into the parts of it that I love, and I want to continue the story, and build out the world that George [Lucas] and Ron so beautifully designed and rendered,” she said. But at the same time, one of Willow’s appealing qualities is that it centers on this performance by Val Kilmer that is both very modern and very unusual…
“… I think that too, as something that we continued on in spirit, which was to have contemporary voices,” he continued. “… I think we wanted to let that also be something that we continued on in spirit.”
“Voices that you weren’t used to hearing in fantasy, be your guides through it, so that you get this very unusual and specific experience of going to a fabulous world, but being with people you could imagine were your friends,” the author of the fantasy novel said.
Where can I watch the movie Willow?
You’ll be happy to know that the original Willow movie is currently available to stream on Disney+. This is great news for anyone who has been meaning to watch it for the first time or simply wants to refresh their memory of it.
Both of those titles are available there, which makes sense given that is where viewers are accessing the series. If you want to watch them at home, you can do so in the same location.
The movie can also be rented on streaming platforms such as Amazon Video and YouTube, amongst others.
Willow is currently available to watch on Disney+ only, and new episodes are added every Wednesday.
