Taika Waititi is featuring as Hitler in the first Jojo Rabbit image. Taika Waititi’s next project is a dark comedy-satire set during World War II. The filmmaker’s version of the German dictator seems to be a wry man who is all appreciations for the beauty of Jojo’s mum Mrs. Betzler, played by Scarlett Johansson.taika waititi

Taika Waititi, famous for indie comedies like Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows, has been promoting Jojo Rabbit in recent months. Last year, he had directed Thor: Ragnarok and was acknowledged as a worldwide star. The director infused the brand of comedy he is famous for into the superhero movie. His humour is not hurtful, it is self-deprecating, dark and has irony.

Winning World War I is a moving dramatisation of the landmark book, The Western Front Diaries, written by historian Dr Jonathan King.

Late last month, Waiti had mentioned that Jojo Rabbit will make many racists angry. He has faced racism in his home country of New Zealand as a man of Polynesian (specifically Maori) descent. He had mentioned in April this year, “I think New Zealand is the best place on the planet, but it’s a racist place. People just flat-out refuse to pronounce Mori names properly. There’s still profiling when it comes to Polynesians.”

Taika Waititi has also been posting photos from the set of Jojo Rabbit. Earlier this month, he tweeted out an image of him standing with a portrait of Hitler. He captioned it, “Week one down of our anti-f****face satire, Jojo Rabbit. Can’t wait to share it with the world. Also, what better way to insult Hitler than having him portrayed by a Polynesian Jew?”

Jojo Rabbit does not have a release date yet as production is still in early stages. Rebel Wilson, Thomasin McKenzie and Sam Rockwell also star in the film.
