The first trailer for Jojo Rabbit, the new & # 39; anti-hate satire & # 39; by director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, What we do in the shade, Hunting the Wilderpeople), has arrived. It follows a young boy who befriends an imaginary Adolf Hitler, and it's pretty crazy.
The trailer is relatively short and arrives just under a minute, but that is all it takes to taste the new Waititi story. The trailer introduces a young boy named Jojo who makes an imaginary friend after being bullied. That friend is Hitler, played by Waititi (who often plays stars in films that he writes and directs). The only thing we are not really looking forward to is the larger story arc. The film is set during the Second World War and Jojo discovers that his mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in the attic. Jojo loves his mother, but he also loves his country, and he is trapped between the two – all while being bullied. The trailer gives a glimpse into the other crazy characters of Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson.
It's a pretty exciting time for Waititi. The Jojo Rabbit trailer comes just a few days after he entered hall H in San Diego Comic-Con to talk about it Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth episode in the Marvel Cinematic Universe & # 39; s Thor series. Waititi works with Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth for the new film, in which Portman plays Thor for the first time.
JoJo Rabbit will get its official debut at this year's Toronto International Film Festival in September. It will be released on October 18 for all others.
