Taika Waititi to Direct and Co-Write New Stars Wars Feature Film

Disney earmarked a date in December 2022 for a new adventure but then Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and DB Weiss exited their planned Star Wars project, which had been rumoured to take that spot. In January, he said he was still in discussions with LucasFilm.

Yes, you read that correctly - Taika Waititi, fresh off an Oscar win for his JOJO RABBIT screenplay, has been hired to co-write (with 1917's Krysty Wilson-Cairns, also the screenwriter on Edgar Wright's forthcoming LAST NIGHT IN SOHO) and direct his very own STAR WARS movie. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuted in theaters on December 20th, meaning that it arrived on Disney+ just 4 months and 14 days after it came to theaters. He directed the final episode of The Mandalorian's first season, and played the assassin droid IG-11.

Academy Award victor Taika Waititi, who recently won Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit and directed the widely-acclaimed first season finale episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+, will direct and co-write a new Star Wars feature film for theatrical release.
