Taika Waititi Offers New Details About His Mysterious ‘Star Wars’ Movie – Deadline

Don’t expect director Taika Waititi’s planned Star Wars movie to be about Chewbacca’s grandmother.

The director warned so much in a recent interview with Total Film, saying, “Look, I think if the Star Wars universe is going to expand, it has to expand. I don’t think it would be of any use to me in the Star Wars universe to to make a movie where everyone thinks, ‘Oh, great, those are the blueprints of the Millennium Falcon, ah that’s Chewbacca’s grandmother.’ That all stands on its own.”

The director, who will bring us next time Thor: Love and Thunderwent on to say, “I’d like to take something new and create a few new characters and just expand the world, otherwise it feels like it’s a very small story.”

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has already said “we are nearing the end of the saga that George” [Lucas] created and that we were on our way to the future of storytelling in the Star Wars universe.

And with TV series, movies, publishing and video games, that universe no longer fits into standalone arcs of three movies.

“I’m hesitant to use the word trilogies anymore because Star Wars is much more about persistent storytelling,” Kennedy said.

As for the movie solar system in the nascent Star Wars universe, “We have a roadmap,” Kennedy said, and “I’d say Taika’s story fits into that more specifically.”
