Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi Might Direct A New Star Wars Movie, Report Says

Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, could direct a new Star Wars movie for Disney, according to a report. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Disney has approached the director to direct a new Star Wars movie, though there are many unanswered questions about it.

The exact nature of extent of the discussions is unknown. Also a mystery is whether or not this movie would be separate from the one being produced Marvel boss Kevin Feige. It appears to be early days, as THR appears to be confirming that discussions are underway but specifics are unknown.

The Rise of Skywalker, which recently crossed $1 billion at the box office, is said to be the final entry in the Skywalker Saga. The series is now taking a little break before returning in 2022, and it appears Waititi could be part of the franchise's future. The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is also working on a new Star Wars trilogy of his own. Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were developing their own Star Wars movies before quitting to work for Netflix instead.

Waititi responded to the report with a tongue-in-cheek tweet.

Waititi is no stranger to Star Wars, as he directed the final episode in The Mandalorian's first season on Disney+. He also voiced the droid IG-11. His latest movie, Jojo Rabbit, picked up six Oscar nominations this year, including Best Picture.

Waititi is currently working on the low-budget movie Next Goal Wins for Fox Searchlight, before moving on to Thor: Love and Thunder, which is releasing in November 2021. He is also attached to a new Akira movie for Warner Bros.

Waititi is known for his comedy and irreverence--I mean, have you seen What We Do In The Shadows?---so it would be really interesting to see what he could do in the Star Wars universe on the big screen.
