‘Star Wars’ Spinoff, ‘Rogue Squadron,’ Delayed Due To Director Patty Jenkins’ Schedule
The film was scheduled to begin production in 2022, but it looks as though that start day is no longer going to happen. The film was set to be released on December 22, 2023.
Rogue Squadron was the first big-screen movie for the space opera series since 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Lucasfilm, the production company behind the movies, has concentrated more heavily on Star Wars streaming offering with its expansion of films. They include the Disney+ hit The Mandalorian. Another series will be coming up soon that includes Ewan McGregor return in the iconic role of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Book of Boba Fett will debut on the platform in December.
Rogue Squadron was discussed at an investor day last year, as well as Jenkins’ involvement. However, due to Jenkins’ commitments to other projects, the film is now on hold. She is currently working on Warner Bros’ third Wonder Woman film and a Cleopatra feature for Paramount.
Lucasfilm is also working on completing Indiana Jones 5, which has also recently been delayed due to the lead of the film Harrison Ford injuring his shoulder.
Now that it's delayed, it's a good time to mention that the film wasn't just delayed because of Jenkins' schedule, but that production on Rogue Squadron isn't going well behind the scenes. It was never going to be ready to shoot next year. pic.twitter.com/KIEcICr8Pz
