Rumours: Taika Waititi To Develop A Star Wars Movie?
Hey,Thor: Ragnarok is one of my darkhorse favorite movies in the MCU (that’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars nerds). Like Ragnarok, Waititi directed some of the best of The Mandalorian episodes in Season One on Disney+.

Taika Waititi, the filmmaker behind the Oscar-nominated Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok, has been approached to develop a Star Wars movie, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
It is unclear where things stand in those talks. It is also unclear whether the project is separate from the one being developed by Kevin Feige, with whom he closely worked on Ragnarok, or a separate Star Wars project.
Disney and Lucasfilm, producers of the Star Wars movies, had no comment.
