Taika Waititi lampoons Nazi allegiance in new 'Jojo Rabbit' trailer

Taika Waititi lampoons Nazi allegiance in new 'Jojo Rabbit' trailer”

While the first trailer for star/director Taika Waititi's JoJo Rabbit was an interesting tone poem of sorts, the new trailer from Fox Searchlight gives a better idea of the heart and soul of the anti-Nazi film.

The Kiwi director made his debut as an imaginary version of Adolf Hitler in the teaser trailer for the film, but now fans can get a glimpse at the rest of the setting of the film, which follows a young boy named JoJo (Roman Griffin Davis).

"You're not a Nazi, Jojo", says the girl in the attic. "You're a 10-year-old kid who likes dressing up in a fun uniform and wants to be part of a club".

The film's supporting cast includes Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell, Alfie Allen, and Stephen Merchant, while Oscar-winning musician Michael Giacchino composed the film's score. The offbeat WWII comedy focuses on Jojo, a young German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers that his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. It's an absurd premise that perhaps only the Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director could pull off. Watch the new Jojo Rabbit trailer below. Rockwell plays a Nazi captain, while Waititi appears as the Jojo's imaginary friend, a weird and amusing version of Adolf Hitler.

Jojo Rabbit will open this year's Fantastic Fest on September 19th, before rolling out into theaters on October 18th.
