Franchise Fatigue Does Not Exist In This Dojo

The Rise Of Skywalker only came out last month, but talks are already underway regarding the next Star Wars film for the Mouse House.

The original plan for the next films was to hire the Game Of Thrones dudes David Wenioff and D.B. Weiss, but they stepped down in October after signing a deal with Netflix.

Waititi has already had some experience of the Star Wars universe, directing the final episode of Disney+ show The Mandalorian, in addition, he also voiced the popular bounty hunter droid character IG-11

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that he’s been approached to direct the next Star Wars gig.

The report says that it’s not clear whether Waititi’s prospective Star Wars film is related to the future project involving Marvel president Kevin Feige.

The review mentions –

“Fans of Waititi’s whimsy will find much to admire in Jojo Rabbit –yet another mirth-inducing concoction that keeps the filmmaker’s career on an upward trajectory. How long can he keep it going?”

Taika Waititi is currently working on Thor: Love And Thunder, the follow-up to Thor: Ragnarok.
