Taika Waititi is polishing the story of his film “Star Wars”.
The ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ filmmaker has been tasked with directing a new film in the legendary sci-fi series and explained that he wanted to keep elements from previous films with his project.
Taika told Screen Rant, “That remains to be seen. I don’t know. I’m still writing. I’m still coming up with ideas and telling stories and just wanted to make sure it feels like a” Star Wars”. movie.
“Because I could say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll just write whatever and put in space and then put ‘Star Wars’ on the front. But it wouldn’t be a ‘Star Wars’ movie without some elements and some processing, so I just have to make sure he stays in that wheelhouse.”
The 46-year-old director previously revealed he tried to incorporate sincerity into his new film but wanted to retain a sense of irreverence in his work.
Taika said, “I tend to go down that little alley of sincerity in my movies. I like to trick the viewer into thinking ‘Ha, that’s it’ and then saying, ‘Damn, you made you feel something!
The filmmaker has been working on the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie “Thor: Love and Thunder” and also has a voice role in the new Pixar film “Lightyear,” but he prefers to have a busy schedule.
He said: “It’s my comfort zone to have a lot of stuff. This chaos is where my best work comes from. Someone said to me, ‘You need a break, man.’ Yeah, but I feel like I’ve been on a break for 35 years. I’m working now. I don’t want to stop.
