TrailerWatch: Waititi’s “Jojo Rabbit” takes a surreal, absorbing look at WWII

Taika Waititi as an idiotic imaginary Hitler. SIGN ME UP. I’m getting a strong What We Do in the Shadows goofy satire vibe off of this, with touches of Wes Anderson and Monty Python. And I’ll bet they’ll be touching, learning-time moments as well. Oh how I wish I was at TIFF for the premiere… Synopsis!

Lonely German boy Jojo “Rabbit” Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) has his world view turned upside down when he discovers that his single mother Rosie (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 comes to theaters October 18th, 2019.
