Director Taika Waititi Opens Up About Star Wars Rumours
The Skywalker saga, which took nine movies and a couple of animated shows, is finally over. But that does not mean that this is the end of Star Wars. We already have the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars coming over. This will truly mark the end of everything related to Skywalker. Next, we have also covered how the Disney franchise wants to take a break and regroup in order to decide where to go from this point. Interestingly, rumors have already started to surface of the upcoming projects. One particular rumor says that Taika Waititi is going to lead one of the Star Wars future movies!
Taika Waititi From Star Wars Episode To Movies, Rumor Says
According to The Hollywood Reporter, they have sources who told them that the Thor: Ragnarok director, Taika Waititi is approached to develop an upcoming Star Wars movie. Obviously, there is nothing concrete about the movie, so let’s not discuss that. Right now, it is not clear whether the project is separate from the one Kevin Feige is leading, or if it is actually from the Star Wars franchise.
Taika Waititi is all into fueling these Star Wars rumors. That’s because instead of shooting down or blowing fans to them, he simply decides to stay neutral by posting a particular picture on Instagram:

Taika Waititi also directed the last episode of Star Wars’ The Mandalorian. Is this enough to put him in a position to direct more Star Wars projects that are coming on Disney+? One thing for sure is that he now does have “more” experience as compared to other directors, sort of like a head start. According to DigitalSpy, Pedro Pascal’s show can be serving as a testing ground for directors to move on to bigger projects. For example, Deborah Chow directed two episodes of the show, and now she will direct the unnamed Obi-Wan spin-off series.
Star Wars might be going on a break but rumors, like this Taika Waititi one, is certainly not leaving. Let’s see what is to become of the franchise from this point onwards.
