Taika Waititi Is Going to Co-Write and Direct An Upcoming Star Wars film


StarWars.com has announced that Taika Waititi will be co-writing and directing an upcoming Star Wars film. He will be sharing the writing duties with Academy Award® nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

Of course they made the announcement today, on May the 4th, Star Wars Day.

Taika Waititi did work on The Mandalorian as both the voice of IG-11 and he directed the finale of The Mandalorian which was called Chapter 8: Redemption. Which gave us the scene with stormtroopers punching Baby Yoda and the “on the nose” stormtrooper shooting joke.

Co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns is coming into the project after her Academy Award nomination for the film 1917.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
