‘Star Wars: Rogue Squadron’ Removed From Disney Release Schedule

The Patty Jenkin’s Star Wars: Rogue Squadron film has been removed from Disney’s release calendar. The film was previously scheduled to release on December 22, 2023.

The film was originally slated to start production in 2022 however due to scheduling conflicts with Jenkins, the project was put on the back burner.

Last May, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said the following about the film in an interview with Vanity Fair.

“We have a road map,” Kennedy says, although Lucasfilm’s big-screen return is unlikely to follow the same relentless cadence as before. A movie from Jojo Rabbit’s Taika Waititi and 1917 screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns will likely arrive first, with Rogue Squadron from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins further off. Is it true that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will produce a Star Wars film? “I would love to see what movie he might come up with,” Kennedy says. “But right now, no, there isn’t anything specifically.” And the trilogy from The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson that was announced five years ago? Back-burnered. “Rian has been unbelievably busy with Knives Out and the deal that he made at Netflix for multiple movies.”

Plot details for Rogue Squadron are under wraps,  however, the movie was said to be loosely based on the “X-wing” novels and follow fighter pilots across the Star Wars universe.
