With the rebirth of Star Wars onto the big screen in the last few years, starting back with The Force Awakens in 2015, a job directing either one of the main saga movies or anthology films is one of the hottest gigs in town.
President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy is certainly a woman that can make that happen and has said that she would love for Thor: Ragnarok director, Taika Waititi, to move over from the MCU to the Star Wars universe.
Speaking to Newshub, Kennedy said: “I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie. I think he has exactly the right sensibility. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an amazing job with Thor.”
Kennedy even encouraged Newshub to “let him know” about her comments and stated that it was a genuine job offer. However, Kennedy may find herself disappointed, as Waititi has previously said that he couldn’t see himself venturing to the galaxy far, far away.
