Taika Waititi stands on the red carpet for Thor: Love and Thunder and poses in front of a step-and-repeat for the film. He has curly salt and pepper hair, a mustache, and is wearing a black and white pinstripe suit. Around his neck is a large necklace made up of red, blue, and white spherical beads. He has one hand casually hanging in his pocket and he is smiling with no teeth at the camera.

Your Taika Waititi Streaming Roundup!

To celebrate Waititi’s second directorial adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Love and Thunder, we thought it would be worthwhile to explore all the whimsical, hilarious, and rollicking projects he’s been a part of within the worlds of Disney and 20th Century Fox.

So, strap in and Taika look at these movies and shows directed by—or starring—Waititi, because there’s so much Thor to love than just his MCU projects.

Taika Waititi, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Joe Keery stand facing each other in a sleek, modern office setting, in Free Guy. Waititi has on a long trench coat made of multiple materials, including denim. He is resting casually against the side of a cubicle and is looking at Keery, whose character is speaking. Keery is holding a laptop at his side and is wearing a black polo shirt. In the middle is Ambudkar who is wearing an unbuttoned baseball jersey over a white tank top and black jeans with red lining.

Free Guy (2021)
Set within an open-world video game, 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy follows a non-playable character named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who realizes he can alter the game, Free City, by breaking free of his programming and participating as a hero character. Simultaneously, in our world, struggling game developer Millie (Jodie Comer) discovers that Free City utilizes the propriety coding created for her own game, Life Itself. Millie and her friend Keys (Joe Keery) must prove that Antwan (Waititi)—the ruthless CEO of Soonami Studios and creator of Free City—stole Millie’s code before he resets the game and reverts Guy to his factory settings.

A promotional banner for What We Do in the Shadows on FX. The image is bathed in a purple glowing light and features the bottom half of the faces of four characters, three of which are vampires and one which is a human wearing fake, neon green vampire teeth. The human character is on the far left and his fake teeth are falling out of his mouth. In the middle are two men with beards baring their fangs. On the far right is a woman also showing her fangs and wearing an ornate earring. The show’s title is written in the bottom right corner in cyan font.

What We Do in the Shadows (2019)
Based on the feature film he co-created with Jemaine Clement, What We Do in the Shadows is a mockumentary television series produced by Waititi following the lives of vampire roommates living together in Staten Island. If you enjoy light horror and a classic fish-out-of-water story, this show should absolutely be on your watchlist! We find it endlessly hilarious to watch this cast of bloodsuckers make their way in the modern human world, and Waititi himself appears in multiple episodes as a Viago, a member of the Vampiric Council and protagonist from the What We Do in the Shadows film.

The IG-11 droid from The Mandalorian stands front and center with both mechanical arms outstretched holding blasters. Behind the droid there are bodies on the ground and one stormtrooper approaching. IG-11 wears a double-breasted holster across the center of its body.

The Mandalorian (2019)
We are all anxiously awaiting more news on Waititi’s directorial debut in the world of Star Wars—but until then, fans can find him in an unlikely place: voicing the droid IG-11 in multiple episodes of The Mandalorian season one. IG-11 is a bounty hunter droid programmed to track down and eliminate our favorite little force-user, Grogu. Luckily, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) stops him from completing his mission and IG-11 is later reprogrammed to be an ally to him and Grogu.

Korg (Taika Waititi), a gigantic greyish blue rock creature called a Kronan, sits on the ground against a wall and waves one hand pleasantly towards the camera in Thor: Ragnarok. He is wearing a kilt and large metal armor across his body and over his left shoulder. He is leaning against a brown wall with white accents and details and graffiti written in an alien language.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
The third installation in the Thor saga follows Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) as they escape their mysterious sister, Hela (Cate Blanchett), to the planet Sakaar. There, they reunite with Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiator-like Contest of Champions. Together with the help of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Korg (Waititi), they defeat Hela and save Asgardian civilization before their home planet is destroyed. Waititi was praised for infusing Thor’s story with humor, heart, and new characters that fans have fallen in love with—including Waititi’s own character, a creature made of rocks called a Kronan, who finds a new home amongst the Asgardians and later joins Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy in their travels.

Korg (Taika Waititi) sits on Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) couch in a Hawaiian shirt, holding a video game controller and wearing a headset, in Avengers: Endgame. He is raising his right arm in a wave towards characters off-camera who are greeting him. To his left is another alien creature, Miek, a worm-like being from Sakaar. To Miek’s left is an open box of pepperoni pizza.

Avengers: Endgame (2019)
The next time we see Korg is in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame where he is keeping a very depressed Thor company in New Asgard. Thor’s become a recluse following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and blames himself for not being able to stop Thanos (Josh Brolin) and prevent “The Blip.” Eventually, he finds himself and the will to keep fighting—and Korg is there for the entire journey, even joining the Avengers in the Battle of Earth where Thanos is finally defeated.

Buzz Lightyear’s team in Lightyear sits inside their vehicle in large, bulky space suits. Buzz is at the helm, holding the steering wheel and talking into the recorder on his armpiece. Next to him is Izzy Hawthorne with Sox the robot cat in her lap. In the back seat of the vehicle is Mo Morrison staring out the window and on his right is Dale, who looks grumpy.

Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) & Lightyear (2022)
Catch Korg’s latest appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, now in theaters! But you can also see—or rather hear—Waititi right now in another theatrical Disney release: Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear! In the film, Waititi voices the bumbling but well-intentioned Mo Morrison, a new recruit who is reluctantly eager to assist Buzz in his mission. Lightyear will be available for streaming on Disney+ starting August 3.
