Before delving back into the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the recently announced Thor: Love And Thunder, director Taika Waititi is returning to his smaller, hilarious and more unusual roots with Jojo Rabbit.
Based on the novel Cagin Skies by Christine Leunens, Jojo Rabbit is a World War II satire that follows a young German boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis who discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. With the help of his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler, Jojo must confront his bling nationalism.

Read the official synopsis below:
Writer-director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt For The Wilderpeople), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, Jojo Rabbit, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
Jojo Rabbit will land in UK cinemas on January 3, 2020!
