Writer John Kasdan says fans will appreciate the series

Talking about how he developed the story, writer John Kasdan revealed in an interview, “It’s a whole new thing.rom the moment I got into Star Wars with George, with Cathy, with my dad, I saw an opportunity here with Willow to bring this story back.”

“I knew Warrick was eager to do it, and he played it again, and then when Ron came and worked on Solo with us, he was just as excited as well, and we let the momentum of that allow us to continue this story. The three of us really loved him – loved him as a fan and loved him as a work experience.”

“I just thought, ‘How do I do this, how do I give him the same fidelity we tried to give Solo? “There are deep cuts in Willow’s show, references to backgammon and references to the novel. We’ve dived in, hopefully a true fan will appreciate it.”
