If Raold Dahl had cre­ated a char­ac­ter of a film­maker to adapt his work, I’m pretty sure he would have cre­ated Taika.”

— Melissa Cobb, Net­flix VP of orig­i­nal an­i­ma­tion, dis­cussing re­cent news that Waititi is at­tached to write, di­rect and exec pro­duce two orig­i­nal an­i­mated se­ries based on Char­lie and the Choco­late Fac­tory’s orig­i­nal char­ac­ters.
