Back in March 2018, Taika Waiti was confirmed for the role of an imaginary Afolf Hitler. Taika was already going to direct but, he’s also a part of the cast as well. In an interview, Waititi was asked about the role and here’s what he said, “It’s my version of… a lonely boy’s best version of his hero, which is really his dad.” This was a reference to the fact that the main character of the movie is a 10-year old boy, who wants to join Hitler’s ranks during World War II.
