New 'Star Wars' Movie Is Happening and It Might Actually Be Good

Ryan Britt

If you’ve turned to the cynical side of the Force when it comes to Star Wars movies, there’s might be a very good reason to be excited about a big-screen version of that galaxy far, far away. A new Star Wars movie has been announced and, based on the very little we know about it, it might actually be good. Really!


Although we know nothing about the next Star Wars movie, we do know who the creative team will be: Director Taika Waititi will be in charge of the next big Star Wars flick, and he’ll co-write the movie with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, known for her work on 1917 as well as serving as a staff writer on the TV series Penny Dreadful.

If you’re into larger-than-life movies, you probably recognize Waititi’s name as the guy who directed Thor: Ragnarok, which, you could argue, is the only Thor movie you actually could ever rewatch. (With respect Kenneth Branaugh, the first Thor is fine, but it’s no Ragnarok.) He also, as you might be aware, directed the finale of season 1 of The Mandalorian in which he also played the voice of “nurse droid” IG-11.
