From the fantastically unique mind of Taiki Waititi comes Jojo Rabbit, an “anti-hate satire” that takes place during World War II and tells the tale of a lonely German child who’s enrolled in Hitler Youth. The story revolves around young Jojo, played by Roman Griffin Davis, discovering that his mother, played by Scarlett Johansson, is hiding a Jewish girl.

The plot isn’t highlighted in Jojo Rabbit’s trailer. The main part of the teaser that’s garnering attention from everyone is Waititi’s rendition of Jojo’s imaginary friend…an idiotic Adolf Hitler. Waititi has said that in the process of bringing Jojo Rabbit, he did zero research on Hitler. There is nothing historically accurate with his interpretation. I personally cannot wait to see how Waititi rewrites history a bit; I imagine it’ll be different than Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards. Also, just major credit to Waititi for showing his comedic tools on camera in addition to directing and writing the screenplay.

The cast of Jojo Rabbit is stellar containing Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson. Maybe Wilson will be able to show a more sophisticated sense of humor after haven been the over-talking klutz in the majority of her films. Rockwell is a staple of dark, satirical comedies and Johansson can play humor with experience in Rough Night and Don Jon.

There is not a lot known about Jojo Rabbit, but there is a lot of good will towards it. Waititi is riding a wave of positivity after Thor: Ragnarok surprised everyone with its levity and performance. He is return to the Marvel Universe with Thor: Love And Thunder, which is going to feature a female version of Thor. Then there is also the new Star Wars show The Mandalorian, where he is lending his voice. It is Waititi’s world and we are living in it.

The entire film is based upon a book “Caging Skies,” written by Christine Leunens.

Jojo Rabbit premieres at the Toronto Film Festival and will be more widely released on October, 18.
