Taika Waititi to Direct Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Film

This is what dreams are made of!

For months, fans have hoped and prayed for Taika Waititi to direct a Star Wars feature film. He showed his SW directing chops with the season finale of The Mandalorian, and the fans are hungry for more.

They’re in luck – the official Star Wars website announced today that Waititi will in fact be directing and co-writing a feature length film in the galaxy far, far away. 

Writing the screenplay with Waititi is Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who recently worked on 1917, a favorite this award season. 

What a glorious May the Fourth this has turned out to be! Let’s hope we’ll get more announcements throughout the day.

Start the discussion on our forum and chat room. May the Force be with you!
