Taika Waititi is one to make movies that are both fun to watch and cinematic masterpieces when one is to watch them. Although he has made some movies that are absolutely loved by the fans, including that of Jojo Rabbit and Thor: Ragnarok, he has also worked on some projects that have disappointed fans greatly. Thor: Love and Thunder was an underwhelming disaster of wasted potential.
Both the story and the cast were something that could be further expanded upon in a manner that would give the audiences exactly what they had been hoping to get ever since the success of the third move in Chris Hemsworth’s series. Waititi recently stated that Marvel will not be seeing him again for Thor 5. However, his latest comment on the Star Wars franchise has further stirred worry among fans.
Taika Waititi is Taking Risks with His Star Wars Films
Taika Waititi’s recent film, Next Goal Wins, is one that has brought fans back to the theatres with another humorous take on his films. He is, without a doubt, a talented director. However, his recent film, Thor: Love and Thunder fell short in many ways.
His upcoming Star Wars movie was one that created a bit of concern among the fans as they did not want it to be a disappointment in a similar manner. However, his latest comment is more worrying than anything.
“It’s gonna piss people off.”
While speaking with Variety regarding his recent film, the director talked about his Star Wars project as well. Although there was not much that he could say about it, he did claim that the fans would not be as happy as they would expect. This may be in jest, but it is a concerning statement nonetheless. Whether it is a self-sabotaging statement or one that he hopes to boost his film, fans seem conflicted, to say the least.
Fans Worry About the Future of Star Wars and Taika Waititi’s Career
Fans have been constantly trolling Taika Waititi ever since he made the statement regarding the Star Wars film. They are worried that it would be another underwhelming film that prioritizes comedy over the actual plot and other elements. They are mocking his approach and claim that it could very easily end his career if he goes on to make the same mistake again and again.

There are also fans who aren’t surprised by his statement, claiming that it is far too usual for him. They have stated that there aren’t many expectations with regard to the director making the film either.
