What is known about Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie? We finally have the first details and it seems that it will be “groundbreaking”.
Taika Waititi has revealed the first details about the star wars movie that you are preparing Director of Thor: Love and Thunder has big plans with the franchise lucasfilm and plans to transfer absolutely everything to the big screen. Not in vain, he already has experience in large productions of Marvel Studios. And also in the galactic saga itself, since he directed the last episode of the first season of The Mandalorian. An episode that, in addition, is very well remembered by fans.
In an interview given to TotalFilm, Taika Waititi has claimed that his Star Wars movie will explore the vast universe of that galaxy far, far away.. That is, it will not be inspired or based on characters that have appeared in the so-called Skywalker Saga. “I think for the galactic universe to really expand, it has to really expand,” the filmmaker said. “Otherwise, it feels like it’s a very small story.” What do you think of this decision to get away from the roots?
Our take on parting ways with the Skywalker Saga
The truth is that Taika Waititi is absolutely right. Ever since the “Disney era” began in Star Wars, the galactic saga has focused on expanding everything surrounding the Skywalker Saga. But it seems that he is afraid to walk away from her. When did it start The Mandalorian, the series broke with all the molds. However, in the second season it took a turn to connect with the main narrative and link the story of Din Djarin and Grogu with characters like Luke Skywalker either Ahsoka Tano.
The same has happened with the rest of the alternative productions, such as rogue one or the movie Han Solo. Not to mention the series Obi-Wan Kenobithe most obvious case. Therefore, in Star Wars we are a bit orphaned of new stories, without previous references. Taika Waititi looks like he’s ready to give us one of those stories. And we are delighted with life.
