Could this love-fest lead to an actual Willow sequel? Well, there are no plans for that. But it did reveal that Davis has some role in the Han Solo movie which Howard is directing. The return of the Ewoks?! Finally!
The tweets prompted headlines all over the entertainment media touting both the Willow sequel (which is a longshot at best) and the Star Wars news, despite the fact that Davis had already revealed that he was on the film back in May when he said he was filming Star Wars in the Pinewood Studios where the Han Solo movie was being filmed.
