Taika Waititi writes, directs and co-stars in Jojo Rabbit – and here’s the trailer.
Comfortably one of the least Disney films on paper that the studio acquired when it bought up 20th Century Fox, Jojo Rabbit is the new movie from Hunt For The Wilderpeople and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.
The movie is a World War II satire starring Alfie Allen, Rebel Wilson, Roman Griffin Davis, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson, Stephen Merchant, Thomasin McKenzie and Waititi himself. It’s based on the novel by Christine Leunens, and a trailer and synopsis have been released.
Here’s the trailer…
And the synopsis reads…
Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
The movie is playing at the London Film Festival next month, although its UK cinema release isn’t until 1st January 2020. More as we hear it.
