The first full trailer for Fox Searchlight's Jojo Rabbit has been released, and it offers a longer look at Taika Waititi's hilarious portrayal of Adolf Hitler.
In the trailer, we see the main character Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) questioning his national pride after he finds a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been hiding in their home. In the midst of this confusion, Jojo turns to his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler for guidance.
Based on the trailer, Jojo Rabbit is sure to feature a lot of humor and heart. The film is based on a novel by Christine Leunens called Caging Skies. It is set to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.
After Jojo Rabbit, Waititi will be working on another film for Fox Searchlight called Next Goal Wins. He is also writing and directing Thor: Love and Thunder.
Written and directed by Taika Waititi, Jojo Rabbit stars Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo Betzler, Thomasin McKenzie as Elsa Korr, Taika Waititi as Adolf Hitler, Rebel Wilson as Fraulein Rahm, Stephen Merchant as Captain Deertz, Alfie Allen as Finkel, Sam Rockwell as Captain Klenzendorf and Scarlett Johansson Rosie Betzler. The film arrives in theaters October 18.
