    Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi made waves when he was announced as a director for an episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars television series and one of the first original shows to be developed for Disney+. In a recent discussion, Waititi revealed what the tone of the show will be like and how it compares to his work on Ragnarok, why he's a fan of Boba Fett, and his praise for Jon Favreau.





    Speaking to SlashFilm at the 2019 meeting of the Television Critics Association, Waititi explained that his take on Star Wars would be less comedic in nature compared to his work on Thor: Ragnarok or whatever future Marvel Studios projects he develops for the company. In fact, he stated that his approach was more in-line with the presentation shown in the original trilogy of Star Wars movies:

    As for why he took the directing job for The Mandalorian, Waititi explained he always thought the bounty hunters of the series were cool. To emphasize his point, he also noted how Boba Fett left an impression on a lot of the fanbase in spite of a limited amount of screentime:

    Lastly, Waititi explained that he had a lot of fun working closely with Favreau and gave a hint at one of the scenes he filmed:

    Dozens of Stormtroopers? It sounds a lot like, even on a television budget, The Mandalorian is going to absolutely deliver the kind of action and spectacle that we've come to expect from the movies!



    Star Wars: The Mandalorian will be available to stream on Disney+ sometime later this year.
