Taika Waititi’s long-awaited Star Wars film finally seems to be making some progress. The director joked about the project on a recent red carpet, saying that the movie will “piss people off.”
Fans have been eagerly awaiting any scrap of news about Taika Waititi’s upcoming Star Wars project. Worry about the project’s viability began to swirl earlier this year when Waititi revealed he was struggling with the script. However, it seems the filmmaker has found his groove once more, teasing that the film may piss people off due to his own personal flare.
“It will be … dramatic pause… a Taika Waititi film.” The filmmaker told Variety in a red carpet recent interview for his upcoming film Next Goal Wins. “It’s gonna piss people off.”
There’s still no news about when Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film will hit theaters. The project was said to begin filming sometime next year. However, given the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have set the entire industry back, it’s unclear if the project will maintain that timeline. Given Waiti’s (mostly) stellar history, it’ll certainly be a movie that’s worth the wait.
The future of Star Wars looks brighter than ever

At the event, Kathleen Kennedy announced that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Dave Filoni and James Mangold are all set to direct their own Star Wars movies. Details about the projects are still scarce, but each one is set during a different time period in the galaxy far, far away.
The announcement of these three new Star Wars movies marks an exciting time for fans of the franchise. With each movie being directed by a different filmmaker, there is sure to be a unique perspective and style brought to each project.
