Taika Waititi set to direct next Star Wars film

Good news, that is.

Some good news came out of this Star Wars Day with the news that Taika Waititi will be directing an upcoming Star Wars film.

Taika Waititi isn’t a stranger to the Star Wars universe having directed the finale for The Mandalorian season 1 and also isn’t new to taking on movies in a massive universe with Thor: Ragnarok receiving near-universal praise as one of the best films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Along with directing, he will also be lending his talents as an Oscar-Winning writer (Jojo Rabbit) to the project alongside Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917).

This new Star Wars project is still very early in pre-production so no word on the setting, storyline, or a release date.
