Taika Waititi Gives An Update On His Star Wars Movie
"I like to fool the viewer into thinking, 'Ha it's this' and then them going, 'Damn it, you made me feel something!'"
Writer, director, and actor Taika Waititi is set to direct and co-write a new Star Wars movie. We don't know much about it, but now the Thor: Love & Thunder director has provided a small tease.
Speaking to Wired, Waititi said it's still early days, laughing that it's "still in the 'EXT. SPACE' stage," a reference to the earliest stages of scriptwriting.
More seriously, Waititi said, "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 is no stranger to Star Wars, as he voiced the droid IG-11 on the Disney+ TV show The Mandalorian, and he also directed the Season 1 finale of that show.
Waititi's new Star Wars movie is likely some time off still. The writer and director recently wrapped filming on 2022's Thor: Love & Thunder with Chris Hemsworth.
