Taika Waititi has been confirmed to direct and co-write a new Star Wars film. The as-yet-untitled feature is the first major Star Wars film announcement since The Rise of Skywalker.

The new film will be the Oscar-winner’s latest foray into the galaxy far, far away after directing and starring in The Mandalorian on Disney+. It comes after he was previously touted to direct a new Star Wars film back in January.

The Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Love and Thunder director will co-write the screenplay with 1917 writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns, though no further plot or release details have been confirmed.

Additionally, Lucasfilm has confirmed that a new Disney+ series from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland is in the works, on which she will serve as writer, executive producer, and showrunner.

Alongside Waititi’s film, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is meant to still be working on a new trilogy of movies in the franchise, though the news has been scarce on that front lately. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss were previously set to helm a new trilogy of Star Wars movies but left the project last year.

The Rise of Skywalker was released last year and marked the end of the nine-film ‘Skywalker Saga’, though premiered to polarising reviews.
