THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Director Taika Waititi Suggests His STAR WARS Movie Hasn't Been Greenlit Yet

Filmmaker Taika Waititi has already debunked Kathleen Kennedy's claims that his Star Wars movie will be released next year, but now indicates it won't be greenlit until he's finished writing the script...

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy remains a divisive figure among Star Wars fans. While much of the hatred she receives is, sadly, due to her gender, there's no denying that the executive has made some significant missteps these past few years. Among them is making promises that don't pan out.

For example, new Star Wars trilogies from Rian Johnson and David Benioff and Dan Weiss have failed to materialise, while Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron has crashed and burned with no explanation.

At Star Wars Celebration, Kennedy stated that Taika Waititi's movie set in this Galaxy Far, Far Away will be released in 2023, though it's since become clear that's not going to happen. Doing the rounds to promote Thor: Love and Thunder, the filmmaker has said on numerous occasions that he's still trying to crack the story, and now casts doubt on the project actually happening.

"I’m trying to write the 'Star Wars' idea at the moment," Waititi tells The New York Post (via SFFGazette.com"I’ve got to see how that goes, because once I submit it, that might determine when it gets made or if it gets made, even."

We've seen Kennedy clash with filmmakers (see: Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller), so if his vision doesn't match Lucasfilm's, there is a chance it won't become a reality. Clearly, we're going to have to wait and see for now. 

As of right now, the future of Star Wars on the big screen remains as uncertain as ever. For whatever reason, Lucasfilm seems to be struggling with how to tell stories in theaters, which is somewhat surprising when Disney+ has delivered hits like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi

While it's definitely a shame that we're not enjoying this franchise on the biggest screens possible, there's a lot to look forward to on streaming as Andor, The Mandalorian season 3, Ahsoka, The Acolyte, and Skeleton Crew are all on the way.
