    We've known for over a year that Taika Waititi will co-write and direct a Star Wars movie, which, as Kathleen Kennedy confirmed last December, will not come before 2024. This is understandable, as the director is one of the busiest guys in Hollywood, and has just wrapped on Thor: Love and Thunder, the massive blockbuster that will be released next year. As he has said in the past, his Star Wars movie will be his next project, and it looks like that will be the case. He recently talked about it to WIRED while promoting his latest movie Free Guy, which he stars in alongside Ryan Reynolds.



    Waititi's Star Wars movie is still in the early writing stages, though they appear to have a story locked in.



    For those of our readers who are not familiar with the jargon, screenplays are divided into scenes, which are introduced with a heading, a one-line description of the location, and the time of the day. If the scene takes place outdoors, the writer will start with 'EXT.', while if it is indoors, they will write 'INT.' After that, they write the name of the location. Since all Star Wars movies start in outer space, the scene heading for the opening sequence will be 'EXT. SPACE.'

    About the story and his idea for the movie, he added:



    For an additional reminder of how Waititi views the franchise, we can revisit one of the stand out lines from the first 'season' of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, in which the director said:

    The untitled movie might debut in December of 2025 if Disney doesn't book another date for a Star Wars project before that. The next theatrical release for Lucasfilm will be Patty Jenkins' Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, which will start production next year. Krysty Wilson-Cairns, from 1917, will co-write Waititi's project. We will keep you updated as more information comes out.

    He said it will feel very him. I have never seen any of his stuff. But I expect it to be off the wall. And he will use new characters (ie. misfists).

    This guy has to bring us a great film. An actor's director, an actor, a comedian, a producer, a great screenwriter and a casting director/ film director. I haven't seen JoJo rabbit but I've heard so much good things. Thor Ragnarok was superb! He is returning for Thor Love and thunder. He worked on the Mandalorian. What more can you ask for... Kevin Feige I guess? :D

    Anyone familiar with Taika's work is probably aware that he likes "villains" to be subjects of ridicule. Just putting that info out there to prepare those that require movies to have "strong" villains.

    Thanks for the warning. The female villain in Thor: Ragnarok was one of the reasons I stopped watching the film 3/4 the way through it. She felt like a cardboard cutout of a character.
