Director Taika Waititi Is Coimg With New 'Star Wars' Movie - DuongApt - 05-08-2020
At the beginning of the year – back when we were all so young and naive. A rumor surfaced that Taika Waititi might be directing a new Star Wars movie. Looks like that rumor was true! A new Star Wars movie directed by Waititi is officially in the works. With the Jojo Rabbit filmmaker writing the script with 1917 writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Waititi is no stranger to the Star Wars universe, having directed an episode of The Mandalorian (in addition to lending his voice to character IG-11).
Here’s the official announcement from Star Wars, which also mentions the new Star Wars TV series from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland:
Quote:Academy Award winner Taika Waititi, who recently won Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit and directed the widely-acclaimed first season finale episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+, will direct and co-write a new Star Wars feature film for theatrical release.
As you can see above, there are next to no details about what Waititi’s Star Wars movie might be about. Also worth remembering: we probably won’t be seeing this for a while. Since Waititi is likely filming Thor: Love and Thunder first. Plus you have to take into account the fact that everything is shut down at the moment. In short, it’ll be a few years before we see what Waititi is cooking up.
Waititi’s movie is just one of several future Star Wars projects in the works. In addition to Leslye Headland’s show, the Obi-Wan series, and the Cassian Andor series, all mentioned above. There’s also an untitled Star Wars movie from director J.D. Dillard. A movie work on by Kevin Feige, and of course. Rian Johnson’s previously-announced trilogy. Which may or may not actually happen at this point.
