Director Jon M. Chu has announced that he is stepping down from directing the pilot for Disney+ís upcoming series, Willow. You can read Chu's statement below via Twitter.

Disney+ announced that Chu would helm the series pilot back in October, 2020. Chu would also serve as executive producer with showrunners Jonathan Kasdan and Wendy Mericle.

The series takes place years after the events of the original "Willow" film. It introduces all-new characters to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters, and welcomes back its namesake hero, Willow Ufgood, performed once again by the unmatchable Warwick Davis. Erin Kellyman, Cailee Spaeny and Ellie Bamber are set to star in the new Disney+ series, which will start production in Wales, where the original film was shot.

Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Jon M. Chu, Jonathan Kasdan, Wendy Mericle, Ron Howard and Imagine Television will serve as executive producers, with Roopesh Parekh and Hannah Friedman as co-executive producers. Additionally, Bob Dolman will serve as consulting producer with Julia Cooperman as producer.
