Star Wars fans were equally delighted and stunned when it was revealed during Disney's 2020 Investor Day that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will be officially joining Lucasfilm to helm her own spinoff project titled Rogue Squadron.

Fans have responded to the news quite positively considering Jenkins has proven herself to be a good fantasy and sci-fi director thanks to her stint with DC.

Apparently, Jenkins has been working on the project for quite some time now and according to Chris Pine himself, who reprised his role as Steve Trevor in WonderWoman 1984, he already knows about the film's story. Sharing what he could during an interview with Collider, Pine said: "I had spoken to her about, not my involvement, but the story. She talked to me about it."

Chris added: "It sounds really, really great. But I'm ecstatic for her, excited for what she's about to embark on. If there's anyone that can reimagine and breathe fresh, new life into it, it's her."

Now, this doesn't really confirm whether Pine will be part of the project or not but the amount of trust and confidence Jenkins has for the actor says a lot. I say the potential will always be there considering Pine plays a skilled pilot in the DC Extended Universe and considering Rogue Squadron will revolve around a group a Rebel Alliance pilots, it's already a no brainer that he should be part of the film.

Rogue Squadron is set for release in late 2023.
