Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars: Rogue Squadron movie is being delayed, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Originally slated to enter production in 2022, it has been taken off the production schedule, leaving it with an indefinite release date.
The reported reason for this delay is that Jenkins’ current commitments won’t allow for the movie to be made on time. Jenkins, best-known for her work on Wonder Woman, is slated to write and direct the third film in the series, and is also working on a Cleopatra film starring Gal Gadot.
Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron film was first announced during 2020’s Disney Investor Day event, which feels like a very long time ago now. It included a nifty teaser of Jenkins donning a Rebel flightsuit and striding up to an X-Wing sitting on a tarmac.
Little else has been revealed about Rogue Squadron. It was originally slated to enter pre-production this year. We are currently in the midst of a lengthy break in Star Wars movies, with most of Disney’s attention being on shows like Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett. We do know that it won’t be based on the video games.
The release date for Rogue Squadron remains unclear. Right now it looks like it will release in late 2023 at the absolute earliest.
