Taika Waititi offered a Star Wars movie

Taika Waititi had in the past expressed his interest in joining the Star Wars universe.

"I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie", she said.

She made the comments in an interview with Newshub in Tokyo, where she was promoting the latest Star Wars movie Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.

Kennedy, who took over from George Lucas as the head of Lucasfilm when Disney bought the company in 2012, said she was a fan of Waititi's work after seeing his efforts in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok, which was released last month. I think he has exactly the right sensibility.

The Hunt for the Wilderpeople filmmaker added he may be "nervous" as a number of high-profile directors have stepped down from directing Star Wars films before they were completed. Remember how Lucasfilm chose to fire the tag-team because they made Solo: A Star Wars Story too comedic and encouraged the cast to do too much improv? "Very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an incredible job with Thor".

She later said that she will let Waititi know and that it was a genuine offer.

Since the boss herself has offered a job to direct the Star Wars movie, Taika Waititi might want to reconsider. "I'm not an idiot".

This statement was made by Waititi soon after the announcement that Colin Trevorrow would not continue to direct Star Wars Episode IX.

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi might have his next job lined up.

Waititi's distinct creative vision seemed to flow so well with Marvel and because of it, some have questioned whether or not he should make the jump from the Marvel cosmos to the Star Wars galaxy.

His next film is scheduled to be Bubbles for Netflix, an animated movie about Michael Jackson's pet chimpanzee.
