I'm on board with all the interesting, fun and weird stuff coming out of Taika's mind and this is no exception. A Taika Waititi Star Wars film? Sign me up. Have him partner up with Kevin Feige and Jon Favreau in some capacity for this new project and we're in business.
We already had a pretty good taste of what Taika could do with the property and the right people surround him.
Mandalorian episode 8 gave us a whole range of possibilities. A season finale with everything, humor, drama, cool action, impressive and inventive visuals... All with Taika's personal touch.
Hmm. I'm not an expert on Taika's work, but based on what I know I'm not really feeling it.
The is some very refreshing news after ROS.
If the powers that be didn’t like the humor and quirkiness that Lord and Miller were bringing to the universe, why would they want Taika? If I were him, I’d stick to just something smaller like Mando.
I mean, at this point, why not? He'll likely make something closer to what the originals were while also taking the series in a new direction.
I like his films, and I would hate it if he decides to take the franchise in a new and unpredictable direction so that everyone can talk about how he's a "hack" the way Johnson has had to suffer since The Last Jedi.
I mean, I'll like it, but if he doesn't have Luke force-crushing AT-ATs....people will whine. Hopeully, he'll so something set with completely new characters so he can have some fun.
I feel like Wahtiti said he wouldn't do Star Wars movie because they'd fire him for just for being him.
I like his work but SW has boned over a bunch of directors. I don't trust they'll let his vision just go
I like Taika's vibe and approach in the movies i've seen from him. Color me curious as to what he could bring to Star Wars. I hope this is true and it works out.
I’m interested for sure.
Could be very interesting, if you look at his films like "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" they have a lot of heart.
That was 2 years ago. Things were quite a bit different and Lord and Miller were making a movie about a character that had been established for 40 years. They had much less wiggle room with Han, Kazdan, and Kathy on that film. Taika will probably be making up new characters , and not using Legacy characters. And I'm sure Kathy's seeing things a little bit different right now after ROS.
I should say first that I haven't seen his episode(s) of the Mandalorian yet, but I absolutely hated his type of humor in Thor Ragnarök, and it stopped it from being a really great movie if you ask me.
So if he's gonna bring that same kind of stuff over to Star Wars then this might not be for me.

Let’s hope he doesn’t get fired by Kathleen Kennedy.
I predict it will be better than, at least, Rogue one.
Is this the same SW movie that Feige is producing or is Feige’s movie a totally separate one from Taika’s?
There's nothing to suggest they're the same movie
Given Lucasfilm’s terrible track record on keeping directors onboard I’m not holding my breath for this movie to ever happen.
People are supposed to get excited over a director? I think its lame to announce this with no details
As much as I love this news Lucasfilm has a horrible track record when it comes to keeping directors on board, so I'm a bit hesitant in getting too excited. Takia directing a Star Wars movie is not a big surprise though considering how awesome a job he did with his work on The Mandalorian and it helps that he's on a roll as well with the commercial and critical success of Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit.
I'm still bitter about Lord and Miller getting kicked off Solo. I like Ron Howard but....come on.
