An exclusive from Collider‘s Steven Weintraub
In the interview, Joe Russo talks about hanging out with Taika as he directs his episode of “The Mandalorian” and talks about Jon Favreau and how he is always at the forefront of the latest technology especially with the upcoming Lion King and his previous film the Jungle Book.
“It’s amazing. We went down there to say hi to Jon. Taika was directing an episode, so we went to hang out with them. Jon is always at the forefront of cutting edge tech, and he is shooting this in a way that no one has ever shot anything ever before. It’s pretty astounding.”
The also talked about what it was like watching Star Wars growing up. They also talked about making a Star Wars movie at some point, but they are focused Avengers 4
“We grew up on Star Wars like everyone else did. I went to the theater when I was 11 years old to see Empire Strikes Back and sat in the theater from 11:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night and watched it back to back to back. So it was a huge influence on us growing up. Of course we’d love to work, at some point, in the Star Wars universe, but right now our heads are in the middle of another movie.”

Been a nerd my whole life. Started with anime and cartoon not soon after Films, Comic Books and Video Games became what I enjoyed as well. Star Wars is the great franchise, but I do love Star Trek, Lord of the Ring, and Harry Potter.
I want the nerd community to be kind to each other. Stop sending threats to each other and celebrities. I would love to engage in intense debate about the things we all love, not yell at each other and call people idiots just because they don’t agree with your opinions.
I also love sports, boxing and basketball are what I do in my free time.
