Taika Waititi’s ‘Star Wars’ Co-Writer Opens Up About The Franchise

"I'll watch Star Wars all day"

Taika Waititi Star Wars Thor Krysty Wilson-Cairns

Krysty Wilson-Cairns, co-writer of Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film, recently talked about what she loves most about a galaxy far, far away.

Taika Waititi is set to direct a Star Wars film following his latest Thor film. Very little is known about the upcoming feature in the iconic franchise, but we do know that he won’t be writing it alone with 1917 and Last Night in Soho‘s Krysty Wilson-Cairns also involved with the film’s script.

The Star Wars franchise has evolved a lot since its debut in 1977, but with Disney at the helm and the universe’s timeless nature, there are endless possibilities. While speaking with SlashFilm about the Taika Waititi project for the first time, Krysty Wilson-Cairns revealed that’s one of the reasons why she loves Star Wars:

“It’s dangerous you’re asking me these questions. You know if I answer incorrectly, Mickey Mouse will burst into this room and beat me up? And I was in therapy for years about that fear, so it’s clear and present…What I love about Star Wars is that they’re incredibly transformative. There’s a little bit nostalgia in them, but they can change and adapt with the times. So I think, yeah, I’ll watch Star Wars all day [and that] is what I love about them.”

Here is the official synopsis for the last theatrical release in the franchise, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker:

Lucasfilm and director J. J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come.
