Taika Waititi is back in the limelight following the release of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.

Hailing from New Zealand, the grammy award winner is of mixed Maori and European ancestry.
He identifies most poignantly with his indigeonous roots and has never ceased to incorporate elements of his people’s rich culture into his work.
The Kiwi has also dabbled in many entertainment forms including stand up comedy and acting, but he is best known for his work as a director which has earned him a plethora of awards.
As Thor: Love and Thunder hits cinemas, many are wondering just how much the Academy Award winner is worth?
What Is Taika Waititi’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, the Mandalorian director has an estimated net worth of $13 million (£10.8 million) according to celebritynetworths.

Not content with merely directing wildly successful films, the University of Wellington graduate turned his horizons to acting in them too.
He shockingly played Adolf Hitler in Jojo Rabbit, a film he directed too. He also does voiceovers for audiobooks in addition to animated characters.
Progressing from feature films to Hollywood franchises like the Mandalorian and Marvel, Waititi will only come to feature more in pop culture.
