Although we knew Disney was taking a break from Star Wars on the big screen, with a focus on Disney + for the next couple of years and the Games of Thrones duo of David Benioff and DB Weiss pulling back from their planned film, we didn’t do it. I don’t know who would be responsible for the next Star Wars movie, let alone what it would be about. That question was answered in a big way when it was discovered that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins would be running the next Star Wars adventure on a big screen and that it would be called Rogue Squadron.
In a video posted, Patty Jenkins revealed that she has always wanted to make the best fighter pilot movie ever, so expectations for Rogue Squadron are already high. We can expect a focus on X-Wing space battles like we’ve never seen before, something like Top Gun under the stars. While Jenkins cited Michael Stackpole’s Rogue Squadron books as “inspiration,” the blueprint for the film appears to be a completely original concept. The rogue squadron is expected in December 2023.
