Kathleen Kennedy Wants To Bring THOR: RAGNAROK Director Taika Waitit To The STAR WARS Universe

Following the success of Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi has become one of Hollywood's hottest commodities. Now, it appears as if he'll have the opportunity to make the leap to Star Wars...

During the press tour for Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi mentioned that he would probably be "fired within a week" of working on a Star Wars movie due to his improvisational style (that's what led to Phil Lord and Chris Miller being given the boot from Solo: A Star Wars Story, after all). However, the filmmaker noted that he would never so no to such an opportunity so could it now become a reality? 

During a recent interview to promote the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy informally offered Waititi the chance to one day helm a Star Wars movie. 


"I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie," she said. "I think he has exactly the right sensibility. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an amazing job with Thor." Just how well she would respond to Waititi going off script is hard to say but that helped Thor: Ragnarok succeed so perhaps we'll start seeing more unique Star Wars movies in future.
