Waititi is from the Raukokore area of the East Coast region of the North Island of New Zealand and grew up there and in Wellington,[5] and attended Onslow College for secondary school.[6] His father is Māori of Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and his mother is Jewish (of Russian Jewish heritage).[7][8] Waititi has used his mother's surname, "Cohen", for some of his work in film and writing.[9]

Career Comedy and acting work

While a drama student at Victoria University of Wellington, Waititi was part of the five-member ensemble So You're a Man, which toured New Zealand and Australia with some success.[10] He was half of the comedy duo The Humourbeasts alongside Jemaine Clement, which received New Zealand's highest comedy accolade, the Billy T Award, in 1999.[11]

Waititi has also acted on screen since early in his career. He won a local film award for his work as one of the students in the successful low-budget Dunedin film Scarfies (1999) and had smaller roles in the road movie Snakeskin (2001) and the TV series The Strip (2002–03). Waititi played Thomas Kalmaku in 2011 superhero film Green Lantern,[12] and took large roles in two of his own films: 2010's Boy, and 2014's What We Do in the Shadows, which he co-directed and co-wrote with Jemaine Clement. He also plays Korg, a Kronan, via motion capture in his 2017 superhero film Thor: Ragnarok.[13]


Among a variety of artistic interests, Waititi began making comical short films for New Zealand's annual 48-hour film contest.[14] In 2005 his short film Two Cars, One Night earned him an Academy Award nomination.[15] At the awards ceremony, he famously feigned falling asleep as the nominations were being read out.[5][16]

His first feature film, oddball romantic comedy Eagle vs Shark, was released in U.S. theatres for limited distribution in 2007.[17] The film stars Waititi's then real-life partner, Loren Horsley, as Lily.[18] The same year, Waititi wrote and directed one episode of the TV show Flight of the Conchords and was director of another.[19]

His second feature, Boy, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010,[20] and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Waititi also took one of the main roles, as the ex-con father who returns to his family. On its release in New Zealand, Boy received enthusiastic reviews[21] and was successful at the local box office, eclipsing several records.[22] After the success of Boy, Waititi hoped that the film's signature track "Poi E" would get to number one (for the second time) on the New Zealand charts.[23] The song ultimately reached number three on the charts, but managed to become number one on iTunes.[24]

Taika Waititi speaking at 2015 Sundance Film Festival

In 2011, Waititi directed New Zealand TV series Super City starring Madeleine Sami, who plays five characters living in one city.[25]

In 2013, Waititi co-wrote and co-directed vampire comedy mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows with friend and fellow comedian Jemaine Clement.[26] The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014.[27] Waititi and Clement played members of a group of vampires who live in modern-day Wellington.

Waititi's fourth feature, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.[28] When it was released back in New Zealand, the comedy adventure broke Waititi's own record for a New Zealand film in its opening weekend.[29] Based on a book by the late Barry Crump, the film centres around a young boy and a grumpy man (played by Sam Neill) on the run in the forest.

Waititi wrote the initial screenplay for the 2016 Disney film Moana,[30] which focused on gender and family. Those elements were passed over in favour of what would become the finalized story.[31]

In 2017, Waititi won the award for New Zealander of the Year, but was unable to receive it in person due to work commitments.[32]

Waititi directed his first major Hollywood film, Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, which was released in October 2017.[33][34] He had previously directed two shorts for Marvel called "Team Thor", which dealt with Thor's living in Australia with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson.

Waititi will be collaborating with Mark Gustafson to direct the upcoming stop-motion animated film Bubbles, which is about the life of Michael Jackson seen from the perspective of his pet chimpanzee, Bubbles.[35] Waititi is also reportedly directing a new live-action film version of Akira[36] and is preparing to start co-writing a sequel to What We Do in the Shadows, titled We're Wolves.[37] Waititi is also working on an upcoming feature Jojo Rabbit, based on the book Caging Skies by Christine Leunens, the story of a young Nazi with an imaginary Jewish friend, in which Waititi will play Hitler.[38]

In early October 2018, Lucasfilm announced that Taika Waititi would be one of the directors of the upcoming Star Wars live-action streaming series The Mandalorian, which tells the story of a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the period between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.[39][40][41]

Personal life

In May 2012 Waititi's wife, Chelsea Winstanley, gave birth to their first daughter, Te Hinekāhu.[42][43] Their second daughter, Matewa Kiritapu, was born in August 2015.[44][45]

In the run-up to the 2017 general election, Waititi announced his support for Jacinda Ardern and the Labour Party.[46]
