The Jojo Rabbit Trailer Stars Taika Waititi As a Dancing Hitler

Last June, Taika Waititi posted a photo of himself flipping off Hitler as a production update for his next movie, Jojo Rabbit, which he described as an “anti-fuckface satire.” Based on the novel Caging Skies by Christine Leunens, it’s about a young member of the Hitler Youth (Roman Griffin Davis) who learns that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl in their home, and Waititi, who directed the movie, also stars as Jojo’s imaginary friend, the one and only Adolf Hitler. If that’s a lot for your mind to take in, consider Waititi’s tweet from last summer where he said, “What better way to insult Hitler than having him portrayed by a Polynesian Jew?” An excellent question! The first trailer for Jojo Rabbit debuted today, and you can see Sam Rockwell as a Nazi shooting guns along with Waititi’s führer running and dancing and dispensing advice to young Jojo. The Hitler lambasting will begin at the Toronto International Film Festival.
