Thor Ragnarok/ What We Do In The Shadows director, Taika Waititi has made no bones about his desire to piss off NAZIs with his new film, Jojo Rabbit. So, it’s perfectly fitting that the first photo to be released from the set is one of Waititi literally giving Hitler the middle finger. He Tweeted out the image today, along with this message:
Week one down of our anti-fuckface 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?
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
In JOJO RABBIT, writer-director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to a World War II satire. The story follows an awkward young German boy (Roman Griffin) raised by a single mother (Scarlett Johansson), and whose only ally is his imaginary friend Hitler (Waititi). His naïve patriotism is tested when he meets a young girl (Thomasin McKenzie) who upends his worldviews, forcing him to face his biggest fears.
