    Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy offered a short update on Taika Waititi's new Star Wars movie, saying the Academy Award-winner writer is currently penning the script for the upcoming feature. She made sure to reassure audiences they are in for the wild ride and iconic sense of humor that is to be expected from the acclaimed filmmaker.



    No release date has been given to the project, but we do know for sure that it will not hit the big screen on December 2023, as that will be the time when Rogue Squadron, from Patty Jenkins, is debuting.



    Waititi's project was announced on May 4 of this year, but we haven't heard much since, except for the fact that 1917's Krysty Wilson-Cairns is co-writing the script. It will not be the first time he directs anything Star Wars-related, as last year he helmed the season finale of The Mandalorian, probably one of the show's best episodes. He is also currently in pre-production for his upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder, has completed the movie Next Goal Wins, which is currently in the pipeline to be released and has several TV projects he is attached to as a director and/or executive producer. And that doesn't even cover his acting stuff.



    Taika Waititi is now an Academy Award-winner screenwriter, a statue he won for the script of Jojo Rabbit, 2019's Oscar darling from Searchlight.

    I'm really hoping this isn't a wacky comedy star wars that the image above and most Waititi back catalogue would imply.

    I have to admit that I like the colors and the style of this logo but certainly am not sure about the project yet.

    I agree. Am confused too.

    I really love Hunt for the Wilderpeople, What we do in the Shadows and Flight of the Conchords for what they are. Also Jo Jo Rabiit has some interesting and touching set-pieces
    The sad thing (for me) is that a lot of people think Thor: Ragnarok is a brilliant movie (I know he is not the writer) but i think is one of the silliest I have seen in my life.
    Humor in HFTWP for exemple, is subtile, natural. If it has to be that way, I can see the point. But not absurd gags and overacting actors.
