Now that is probably the best news Star Wars has had in the past 30 years.

I'm hoping Disney/Lucasfilm change the schedule tbh... they got an Obi Wan series in the works with McGregor set to return as Kenobi... I hope they redo it and make it a movie, and this is the movie...


Imagining an older McGregor as a curmudgeonly middle aged Kenobi with Waititi's humour.

The weird thing with Waititi is in real life, he's really bland


His commentary on Wilderpeople, it's almost as if he's got no personality. As if acting, writing and directing, he puts absolutely everything into it... then off set, he goes back into his shell.

Really? Maybe I should check it out. The thing is, his sense of humor can be really understated sometimes, to the point of not even sounding like humor, so I wonder if the commentary is just that, really amped up (or not amped up, depending on how you look at it).

Either way, he definitely has a "it's funny that I could make a joke here but just stated something very obvious and direct instead" vibe.



Welcome to the human race...
I love this. I've liked everything of his I've seen and I'd love to see a funnier, more irreverent Star Wars film. Great choice.

At this point, Iíve given up on Star Wars. Iíve definitely liked or loved pretty much all Waititi so one can always hope. But honestly I canít say Iím that excited...

I can't say that I'm a Taika Waititi fan. Of all his movies, which could you say that's his most representative? I couldn't get past the first 15 minutes of Jojo Rabbit, although it may have gotten better later.

I wasnít a fan of Jojo Rabbit either.

Perhaps his cult hit What We Do in the Shadows or maybe Hunt for the Wilderpeople that seemed to really set off his career and probably gave him the job of directing Thor: Ragnarok.



I love them all, but I guess I didn't love Jojo Rabbit quite as much as I expected to. Still very good, though, even if I love the other films MM just listed even more. But yeah, I'd give those a try, little more fun, little less overtly weird in some ways (but still quirky as cuss).



Wilderpeople and Boy would be my favourites of his thus far. Not seen Jojo or Thor yet though as neither really appeal to me that much.
