This week has been a real storm of announcements and confirmations for all fans of “Star Wars”, Whose contents in the franchise will be greatly expanded thanks to the efforts of Lucasfilm and the streaming platform Disney+.
During the last presentation to the investors of the company, Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, would confirm the production of two series that would join the narrative of “The Mandalorian“, Which would be the spin off of Ahsoka Tano and a production called “Rangers of the New Republic”.
In addition, fans of the prequels have expressed their excitement to learn that Hayden Christensen will play Darth Vader in the miniseries about Obi-Wan Kenobi. The news did not stop arriving and one of the ones that has caused the most expectation is the confirmation of a film that, despite not yet having a title, will be directed by Taika Waititi.
News about the project would begin to circulate from May, but the confirmation by Kennedy I originate that the director, not lacking in his singular style of humor, reacted in a funny way about it.
“A new movie by Star Wars with acclaimed filmmaker Taika Waititi is in development. Get ready for an unforgettable trip “, says the official account in Twitter of the franchise. The filmmaker would share a screenshot of the post, adding via Instagram: “What? Ugh, as a long time fan of Star Wars I’m so mad at how I’m about to screw it up. ”
Not surprisingly, the filmmaker reacted in such a way (despite being a joke). Surely he is no stranger (like anyone involved in the entertainment business) to the rejection that the latest films in the franchise have generated.
Also, the same movies from Waititi have suffered from occasional rejection by casual viewers. Considering your track record, it wouldn’t be surprising if you actually launch a final product that is enjoyable and entertaining.
It is not the first time Waititi is involved in the universe Star Wars. He would have directed the finale of the first season of “The Mandalorian Where he voiced the droid IG-11, earning a nomination for Emmy as “Best Dubbing Performance”.
