Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars Film ‘Rogue Squadron’ Delayed, Here’s What Happened

Looks like the Star Wars franchise is facing some delay in regards to its upcoming project. ‘Rogue Squadron’ is the first big-screen outing for the space opera series since Disney and Lucasfilm wrapped up the Skywalker clan’s nine-film saga with 2019’s ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’.

‘Rogue Squadron’, which is the new ‘Star Wars’ film by Patty Jenkins, has been delayed. The film was scheduled to begin production in 2022, but that start date is not going to happen, which could also impact the film’s targeted release date of December 22, 2023, reports variety.com. The delay is due to scheduling conflicts with Jenkins.

Since that point, Lucasfilm has concentrated more heavily on building out its ‘Star Wars’ streaming offerings with the Disney Plus hit ‘The Mandalorian’ and an upcoming series that will see Ewan McGregor return in the iconic role of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The streamer will debut ‘Book of Boba Fett’ in December and has a series focused on Ahsoka, a spinoff with the character portrayed by Rosario Dawson in ‘The Mandalorian’. Lucasfilm is also busy completing ‘Indiana Jones 5’, which was also recently delayed when Harrison Ford injured his shoulder.

Jenkins is best known for helming ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’. She is supposed to direct the third movie in that DC Films series. Jenkins has also been attached to a drama for Paramount about Cleopatra that was intended to star her ‘Wonder Woman’ leading lady Gal Gadot. Jenkins also directed ‘Monster’, which brought Charlize Theron an Oscar.

Meanwhile, ‘Rogue Squadron’ has been taken off of Disney’s production schedule. However, you can revive all your ‘Star Wars’ sense by watching all the films in the franchise, in Hindi as well as in English on Disney+ Hotstar.
