Star-studded trailer for Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit drops

The newest trailer for Jojo Rabbit has dropped, and it's packed full of A-list celebrities.

Scarlett Johansson, Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell and Stephen Merchant all feature in Taika Waititi's most recent project.

The film is described as an "anti-hate satire" focused on a young German boy Jojo - played by newcomer Roman Griffin Davis - who discovers his mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in her attic.

Accompanied by his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler - played by Waititi himself - Jojo must confront his naïve patriotism.

Concern has been raised about the film by Disney's executives, according to reports.

The film's production company, Fox Searchlight, was recently acquired by The Walt Disney Company.

"Halfway through one recent viewing one [Fox Searchlight] executive grew audibly uncomfortable, worrying aloud that the material would alienate Disney fans," reported Variety in August.

But Waititi says he is delighted his new film will "piss off a lot of racists".

"I couldn't be more excited to finally ridicule Nazis and their beliefs," he said in June.

"What better way to insult Hitler than having him portrayed by a Polynesian Jew?"

Jojo Rabbit will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 9 September before it hits New Zealand cinemas on 24 October.
