Anyone who was worried about Waititi “ruining your mythos” any more than it has already been ruined, might be able to breathe a sigh of relief.
In an interview with Variety:
Just by working on “The Mandalorian,” you’ve landed squarely in the future of “Star Wars” conversation. Where does that stand now?
I wish there was a better story, I’ll put it that way. Are there discussions about the “Star Wars” film? Like, yeah, I discussed with my friends in 1996 how cool “Star Wars” was. That’s what they’re going off.
Really, there’s nothing happening?
I think people see me hanging out with people, especially with “Star Wars,” and think I’m having some big discussions about it. I would f—ing love to.
You would want to do a “Star Wars” movie.
If it was right. I would want to do any kind of movie if it made sense, and if it felt not like career suicide.
I wonder if J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson feel that they’ve committed career suicide?
