Willow Showrunner’s Jon Kasdan wanted to balance humor and horror in the season finale [Exclusive Interview] – /movie


Finally, I would like to talk about Graydon.That is my favorite character.

oh that’s so nice

he totally surprised me.

In some ways he’s a little more personal to me. Because Tony will probably tell you that he was doing me a little bit.Certainly as a young man, I had that vulnerability.Combined with true romanticism and longing for love and community , rolled inward with the weight on his shoulders. The nice thing about Graydon is that he’s kind of a very lonely kid and eventually found his family. It’s very bittersweet for him, not just Ellora, but the most important among them, but they and the way they come to Graydon is one of my favorite things about the show.

You’ve also talked about the Lovecraftian elements of the show, and a lot of that feels inhabited by Graydon’s character. Was it intentional for you?

absolutely. completely. Again, that speaks to the balance aspect you’re trying to hit. It’s that we want the threat to be very real and powerful and terrifying. I was really worried about that baby. So the burden with all these shows, and all kinds of horror fantasy right now, is to create something that feels like nothing you’ve seen before. So the supreme embodiment of Lovecraft’s legacy is ‘Stranger Things’, and it makes it not only beautiful, human and personal, but cosmic and terrifying. I wanted to lend the show an element, but I think Lovecraft considers himself a horror fantasist. It was a big part of what he was doing.

Season 1 of “Willow” is now available in full on Disney+.
