Only a select few filmmakers that are not named George Lucas have had the privilege of helming a Star Wars film wit The Last Jedi helmer Rian Johnson is the latest to venture into the galaxy.
The program will be the first series within the universe since "Star Wars: Rebels" was introduced in 2014.
"I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie", Kennedy told Newshub during promotional duties for upcoming film The Last Jedi in Tokyo.
During an interview, Kathleen Kennedy said the Kiwi director "has exactly the right sensibility".
"I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie", Kennedy told Newshub.
The Hunt for the Wilderpeople filmmaker added he may be "nervous" as a number of high-profile directors have stepped down from directing Star Wars films before they were completed. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an awesome job with Thor.
Now that the brand manager of the Star Wars franchise herself says he's "exactly right" for it, Waititi may have to reconsider.
The director's comments are a follow-up from comments he made about taking on a Star Wars movie on Twitter.
Kennedy made sure to joke to the host that she "let him know" about Kennedy's interest in his abilities.
"Look, I'm not an idiot".
Unfortunately, Kennedy might not be aware that Waititi preemptively joked about turning down the job following the announcement that Colin Trevorrow would no longer be directing Episode IX.
Waititi's distinct creative vision seemed to flow so well with Marvel and because of it, some have questioned whether or not he should make the jump from the Marvel cosmos to the Star Wars galaxy. Meanwhile at Marvel, the latest director to venture into the Marvel Cinematic Universe was Taika Waititi. Well, guess who else likes improv - Waititi.
