Taika Waititi Teases He’s Got A Story For New Star Wars Film

It’s been over a year since Disney announced Academy Award winner Taika Waititi, would direct and co-write a new Star Wars feature film for theatrical release.  Since then, we haven’t much on the project, however, Waititi recently gave an interview with Wired UK and shared that he knows the direction that he and co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns are headed with the story.

“It’s still in the ‘EXT. SPACE’ stage.  But we’ve got a story. I’m really excited by it because it feels very me.”

“I tend to go down that little sincerity alleyway in my films. I like to fool the viewer into thinking ‘ha it’s this’ and then them going, ‘Damn it, you made me feel something!’”

Waititi won Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit and directed the first season finale episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+.  He also directed Thor: Ragnarok and Thor: Love and Thunder for Marvel Studios, which is now scheduled to open on May 6, 2022.

A release date has not been set yet for Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film.
