It is solely been a number of weeks since Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy admitted that the corporate has a slew of Star Wars plans on the horizon, and Lucasfilm has already confirmed another trilogy of Star Wars films is on the best way. With so many potentialities on the horizon, Kathleen Kennedy, and Lucasfilm as an entire, are additionally open to searching for new administrators to tackle tasks. She just lately revealed that she can be cool with the concept if Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi have been enthusiastic about an upcoming enterprise for an additional Disney-owned property. Kennedy mentioned:
I might love for him to direct a Star Wars film. I do, I agree. I feel he has precisely the appropriate sensibility. It was very thrilling to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an incredible job with Thor. Let him know.
So, on the very least, Kathleen Kennedy appears to know who Taika Waititi is and be a fan of the director. The Newshub reporter asking about Waititi additionally obtained Kathleen Kennedy to agree that her assertion “was type of a job supply,” so if the celebs align this might theoretically occur for the Star Wars universe down the road.
I might be remiss if I did not word this entire concept might sound nice, however if you happen to’ve been listening to Taika Waititi in interviews in any respect, you might already know that the Thor: Ragnarok director has stated he would not assume he is the very best match for a Star Wars enterprise. He mentioned:
Lolz, I like to finish my movies. I would be fired inside per week.
Taika Waititi’s feedback got here after Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go by Lucasfilm whereas partially via filming Solo: A Star Wars Story. Reportedly, one massive factor that Lord and Miller have in widespread with Waititi is a lot of improvisation on the set. All of that improvisation labored for Thor: Ragnarok, which was a funnier, extra charming movie than the opposite Thor ventures. It did not actually work for the seemingly extra buttoned-up Lucasfilm, which replaced Lord and Miller with a extra easy storyteller in Ron Howard. Waititi has additionally referred to as Star Wars films “significantly onerous” so I am undecided the 2 events would ever come to the desk to create one thing collectively, even when Kathleen Kennedy admires Waititi’s work.
Nonetheless, there’s part of me that may be very curious to see a Star Wars film created by Taika Waititi. The New Zealander has his own sensibilities in terms of making films, and the world George Lucas created has already been improved by quite a lot of completely different minds and factors of view, the firing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller however. We’ll get to see Rian Johnson’s imaginative and prescient subsequent, when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15. If you have not pre-ordered your tickets for that journey already, we completely have you covered.
