The birth of World Of Taika (WOT):
We have created this fansite to share and promote Taika’s amazing works. We’re NOT Taika Waititi, just his three dedicated fans.
The name “world of taika” was adopted from a facebook group that Taika himself created. We love the name because the way he thinks, the things he creates, and stuffs he makes up (like stories, and jokes) have immensely inspired us and brought so much enjoyment and pleasure to life! His world becomes (a part of) our world.
We are proud to wear Taika’s stamp of approval
@WorldOfTaika I have to thank you guys for all the support and effort you have made for me over the last year or so. WOT you are great!

Who we are
We knew each other from FOTCmb (which we would like to thank a million to). After months of fangirling on the forum, we decided to open this site – the first fansite dedicated to Taika Waititi. But not the first place. The material gathered by Jessica, a great “Taikolog” on FOTCmb was enough to start this website in 2011 and we continue her work from there.
Sylwia – Chief Taikopath
where from? Poland
how? Thanks to some weird movie called Eagle vs Shark and then even weirder TV show Flight of the Conchords.
why? because he’s a sensitive genius and a pretty hot Jewish Kiwi.
Stella – WOT co-creator
where from? Canada
how? I fell in love with Taika’s works, starting from his smash hit “BOY” at ImagineNative film festival in 2010, Toronto, Canada. So, I started digging up for more of his earlier stuffs, and then, I got hooked more!
why? Taika is a gift, a magical gift. It’s amazing to have come across a path with his existence, creativity, and outlook on life. On top of all that, his humbleness blew me away (his sexiness is just a bonus, oh yea, :D )!
Chloé – WOT co-creator
where from? France
how? from FOTC, then Eagle vs Shark.
why? he’s very creative, he has a very personal storytelling style that I enjoy and feel connected to, he’s also inspiring and funny, of course.
