Disney has officially confirmed the appointment of the director.
Rumors that Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok”, “Jojo Rabbit”) may be filming the first part of the new Star Wars trilogy began to appear at the beginning of this year. This is not surprising, because 7-9 episodes left very mixed impressions with fans of the saga. In addition, Taika Waititi has already worked with Disney – he shot the final episode of the first season of the Mandalorese series. Christie Wilson-Cairns (“1917”, “Last Night in Soho”) will assist in the work on the script.
In addition, Disney said that Leslie Hadland (Bachelors, Matryoshka) is currently working on a new series on the Star Wars universe for the Disney + streaming platform. By the way, now in development is also the second season of the series “Mandalorets” and new series about Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Very encouraging news for fans of the saga. And by the way, because today is the day of Star Wars. May the 4th be with you!
