Warwick Davis is getting closer to joining the physical media movement. A recent post from the Willow star has him expressing dismay and confusion at Disney as to why fans of Willow can no longer watch the Disney+ Original Series.
I meet lovely people on a daily basis who are fans of #Willow, who are the reason the @DisneyPlus Series was made. Please tell me @WaltDisneyCo, what do I say to these subscribers when they ask why they can’t watch the series any more? #embarrassing pic.twitter.com/tUu9gstkbS

With both the #embarrasing inclusion and tagging Walt Disney themselves, the star of Willow is publicly expressing his annoyance at Disney for the first time since Willow was pulled from Disney+, a decision that I’m sure no one understands.
Disney decided to remove Willow from the streaming service in May, just a few months after the show’s final episode in January 2023. Disney had announced that a second season wasn’t on the books, although Jon Kasdan has spoken about that in interviews and noted that it’s simply a “pause” and that the second season could still happen. This is hard to believe, given the first season can’t even be watched anywhere by fans or discovered by would-be new fans while they’re scrolling through the Disney+ app.
Can you buy a Blu-ray of Willow? No. Can you steam it? No.
How do you feel about the odd decision from Walt Disney to remove Willow from Disney+? Let me know in the comment section below.
