Lucasfilm Wants Taika Waititi To Make a Star Wars Movie!

I think this is something every Star Wars fan really wants to see. Taika Waititi, the director of Thor Ragnarok and Thor: Love and Thunder, as well as the voice of IG-11 in The Mandalorian and the director of one of the best episodes, is being courted by Lucasfilm to make a Star Wars movie.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, and they say it seems like this is separate from the Star Wars movie that Kevin Feige is in the process of developing.

It also isn’t known if this is the December 2022 movie or not, but with Taika getting ready to make Thor: Love and Thunder in August for a November 2021 release, it might cut things too close to also do a Star Wars movie releasing just a year later. So this is probably one beyond that 2022 movie, which we’re supposed to hear some news about soon.
