Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was very complimentary of Waititi in a recent Star Wars:The Last Jedi press junket in New Zealand, opening the door for Waititi into thefranchise. While having Waititi on board seems like a great idea given his offbeat humor and his comedic talents, we're not sure whether handing the filmmaker a Star Wars project wouldn't end up in another Phil Lord and Chris Miller Han Solo situation.
Speaking to Newshub, Kennedy said: "I would love for him [Waititi] to direct a "Star Wars" movie".
Speaking to Newshub, the brand manager of the Star Wars franchise, Kathleen Kennedy agreed with the host that Taika Waititi would be flawless for Star Wars after checking out his work in Thor, which she thought was "amazing". I think he has exactly the right sensibility. "Very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an unbelievable job with Thor".
The Thor Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Waititi has previously expressed doubt that he'd be the right fit for the Star Wars franchise, telling the New York Times: "There's not much room [in the franchise] for someone like me".
Since the boss herself has offered a job to direct the Star Wars movie, Taika Waititi might want to reconsider. She and the reporter laughed, but Kennedy did say "yeah" when Newshub said it was kind of a job offer.
Unfortunately, Kennedy might not be aware that Waititi preemptively joked about turning down the job following the announcement that Colin Trevorrow would no longer be directing Episode IX. "Who would actually say no to Star Wars?" he told Uproxx. The entertainment colossus also owns Marvel Studios, who made Thor: Ragnarok, and Moana, which Waititi was involved in the early stages of writing.
