Kathleen Kennedy 'Would Love' Taika Waititi To Direct A 'Star Wars' Film

Kennedy told Newshub that she thought Waititi had "exactly the right sensibility" for a Star Wars film.

However, with Kennedy being impressed with his work on Thor: Ragnarok, some kind of deal could be made in the near future.

During an interview, Kathleen Kennedy said the Kiwi director "has exactly the right sensibility".

Waititi has not publicly responded to this public overture, but several months previously he was asked about the possibility of directing a Star Wars film and had reservations on how the original three Star Wars directors were removed from their films this year by Kennedy and Lucasfilm.

He made one of the best Marvel movies ever - now Disney wants him to helm a Star Wars film. "Very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an fantastic job with Thor".

Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok has caught the eye of Star Wars boss Kathleen Kennedy.

She later said that she will let Waititi know and that it was a genuine offer. 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? He had once told Uproxx, "I'm not an idiot".

Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow was recently replaced by JJ Abrams, while The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired from their Han Solo movie. Do you think Taika Waititi is the right person to direct a Star Wars movie?

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.

"Lolz, I like to complete my films", Waititi replied to a fan who suggested he take on directing duties.
