Taika Waititi hired to direct a new Star Wars movie for Disney

Taika Waititi has been in favour with Disney for a long time now and the mouse studio have hired the Oscar winning director to make the next Star Wars movie.

The whacky director who also brought us Thor Ragnarok and JoJo Rabbit will also bring us the next Thor film, Thor: Love And Thunder in 2022.

No word on any details other than the screenplay will be co-written by Oscar winner Krysty Wilson-Cairns, so a winning combination already.

Disney have pencilled in the first of a new Star Wars trilogy for December 16 2022, that was before the cinema closures due to COVID-19, but this could well fit that, with Waititi directing the rest if it succeeds at the box office.
