Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Has Been Delayed Indefinitely

Last year, we were treated with news that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is set to direct Star Wars: Rogue Squadron which would introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots in the galaxy far, far away. But now, as it turns out, it might take a while now before we get to see it.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Star Wars: Rogue Squadron has been delayed indefinitely. Jenkins and writer Matthew Robinson have been working on the project with Lucasfilm for over a year with plans to start production by next year. However, due to Jenkins' schedule and other commitments, they wouldn't be able to make it into production by next year. The plan is that once Jenkins has fulfilled her commitments, she will be working on the project again.

This is definitely a huge setback for the project which was planned to be released in December 2023. The report didn't indicate that the date has been pushed or pulled off, but it is likely now that either will happen given this recent development. Rogue Squadron would have been the next theatrical Star Wars film, but that might be the case no more. Lucasfilm is currently known to be working on other two Star Wars films: the untitled project directed by Taika Waititi and the untitled project produced by Kevin Feige.

There are no details yet about what Jenkins' commitment next year made her unavailable for Rogue Squadron. But we all know that she is also currently working on a third Wonder Woman film and a Cleopatra movie for Paramount Pictures (with Gal Gadot starring in both). According to the report, Jenkins was supposed to work on the third Wonder Woman after Rogue Squadron, but she might work on the DC film first now given this development.

Despite the setback in the theatrical film side, Lucasfilm is currently working on a lot of Star Wars TV series including The Book of Boba Fett (which is set to be released on December 29), Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka, The Acolyte as well as the third season of The Mandalorian.
