The Hollywood Reporter broke the exclusive news yesterday. According to their sources Disney is trying to get Taika Waititi to develop a Star Wars movie. Taika voiced IG-11 on The Mandalorian and also directed the season finale. So he’s no stranger to Star Wars. The question is if Taika would be a good fit for Star Wars though when he’s also tasked with writing the script. Taika Waititi is known for such movies like JoJo Rabbit (he’s nominated for two Academy Awards for that), Thor Ragnarok and What We Do In The Shadows. His movies are quirky, have lots of comedy and the question is if his particular style of filmmaking would be good for Star Wars. Would you like a Star Wars movie in the style of Thor Ragnarok? I enjoyed that movie, but I am not sure its idiosyncratic style would make for a Star Wars movie all fans accept. The next question is if Taika has the time, since he’s a very busy man these days. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
