Oscar-winning film-maker Taika Waititi will direct and co-write a new Star Wars film to be released in cinemas.
Waititi won an Academy Award earlier this year for World War Two film Jojo Rabbit, and is also known for making Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok.
He will write the unnamed film with Scotland’s Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was nominated for an Oscar for 1917.
Meanwhile, US writer Leslye Headland is creating a new series for Disney+, the service’s fourth small-screen spin-off.
