Taika Waititi to expand Star Wars universe – “I would like to take something new and create some new characters”

“Look, I think for the Star Wars universe to expand, it has to expand,” Waititi told Total Film about his yet-to-be-titled film. “I don’t think that I’m any use in the ‘Star Wars’ universe making a film where everyone’s like, ‘Oh great, well that’s the blueprints to the Millennium Falcon, ah that’s Chewbacca’s grandmother.’”

Taika Waititi, who voiced The Mandalorian character IG-11 and helmed an episode of season 1 of the acclaimed Disney+ series added, “That all stands alone, that’s great, though I would like to take something new and create some new characters and just expand the world, otherwise it feels like it’s a very small story.”

He was tapped for a Star Wars installment with a December 2025 release date. The Thor: Love and Thunder director is co-writing the upcoming Star Wars film with Oscar nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has already said “that we were drawing to a close on the saga that George [Lucas] had created and that we were moving into the future of storytelling in the Star Wars universe.”

And, with TV series, movies, publishing and video games, that universe no longer fits into self-contained three-film arcs, as reports Deadline. “I hesitate to use the word trilogies anymore because Star Wars is much more about persistent storytelling,” Kennedy said. As for the film solar system in the burgeoning Star Wars universe, “We have a road map,” Kennedy said, and “I would say that Taika’s story fits more specifically into that.”
