After the end of the new Star Wars trilogy in recent years, Lucasfilm, which has accelerated the efforts to recreate this universe, especially The Mandalorian, shook hands with Taika Waititi to make a new movie from the Star Wars universe.
Waititi, one of the most hard-working names in Hollywood, who is busy with his new project Next Goal Wins after Oscar-winning Jojo Rabbit, will start shooting the highly anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder after this movie. Although the successful director, who has been reporting about the Star Wars universe for a long time, announced that he could not agree with Lucasfilm for a while, the latest developments show that this dispute has disappeared. Because this news that Waititi will direct a Star Wars movie was shared directly from the official account of Star Wars.
Incoming news from a galaxy far, far away….

Taika Waititi, who is not a stranger to the Star Wars universe, gave life to the character named IG-11 from The Mandalorian universe, and also sat in the director’s chair in the last part of the first season of the series. The details shared so far about this new Star Wars movie that Waititi will write and direct are extremely rare. However, in a statement made by Lucasfilm, it was announced that the successful director will write the script of the film together with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who won the Oscar nomination in 1917.
Although the details have been announced recently, the unnamed Star Wars project, where we are unlikely to see something about the project, may be the movie that fans of the universe have been waiting for a long time. We are eagerly awaiting whether Taika Waititi will transfer what he learned from the Marvel universe to the Star Wars universe.
