Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film has died. The project was questionable and the strike ultimately derailed it.
Star Wars has removed Taika Waititi’s film. It seems that the long-awaited film from the director of Thor: Love and Thunder, contextualized in the universe of the galactic saga, will disappear forever from the Lucasfilm list. In fact, a new report suggests that the film is dead and has been removed. Given the strike we are in, this should not surprise us.
This is the result of a report by insider Daniel Richtman, compiled by World of Reel Taika Waititi’s Star Wars film is “officially ‘dead'”. However, no reason was given for this alleged cancellation. In fact, it’s been a while since there’s been an official update about the acclaimed Marvel Studios filmmaker. At the end of May this year, the director stated that he was stuck in the core part of the development. Now there is no jam and nothing.
The filmmaker’s big plans have gone awry
“I have a very good idea for this Star Wars movie,” Taika Waititi promised during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Like all films, I’m stuck in the middle. He asked me what would happen next. Then you look at all these movies that are so great and you say, ‘Well, I guess they can’t just meet a smuggler and an alien companion.'”
Last July, Taika Waititi admitted he hadn’t worked much on the Star Wars film yet. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy also revealed earlier this year that the director is the project’s sole screenwriter. And he noted that they would make the film “at some point.” It seems that this day will never come.
