Disney hired New Zealander Taika Waititi to direct a new Star Wars film. He should not only direct, but also participate in the script. He is supported by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who has already made a name for herself with the 1917 war film.
The New Zealander and Academy Award winner Taika Waititi will direct a new Star Wars film. Disney recently announced this on Twitter. This confirms the corresponding rumors that had already arisen in January this year.

No further details are currently known about the film, which has not yet been officially unveiled. It is only certain that it is definitely scheduled for a release in the cinema and not for the Disney + streaming service. Disney did not reveal exactly when that would happen, just as little as information about the setting of the story. Waititi had previously made a name for herself primarily through his participation in the MCU universe (Marvel Cinematic Universe). For example, he directed Thor: Decision Day and is also involved in Thor: Love and Thunder. He also knows a little bit about the Star Wars universe because he also sat in the director's chair for one episode of The Mandalorian.
He also worked on the screenplay for the new Star Wars film. Incidentally, he is supported by the Academy Award nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who has already made a name for himself in Hollywood with the 1917 war film. She is also responsible for the script for the drama The Good Nurse, which is currently being filmed with actress Jessica Chastain (Interstellar).
