The Rogue Squadron has reportedly been delayed indefinitely. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins’ next Star Wars film should go into preproduction in late 2021 and start filming sometime in 2022. But now Rogue Squadron has been completely removed from the production schedule, according to trade reports. This is reportedly due to Jenkins’ schedule and previous engagements – including Gal Gadot-led Cleopatra, who Jenkins signed a few months prior to the Disney Rogue Squadron announcement. Still, Rogue Squadron is sticking to its December 2023 release date for now.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported on the production delay on Rogue Squadron, the first Star Wars film since the Skywalker saga’s disappointing conclusion with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Deadline confirmed the news half an hour later, finding that Rogue Squadron had still started casting. People familiar with the matter told THR that the creators and producers of Rogue Squadron realized that Jenkins’ schedule left no room for the next Star Wars film in 2022 to return to the project, ”concluded THR, which became a long one Delay can result.

It’s a bit weird to me that this delay wasn’t expected. We’ve known since last December that Jenkins has three feature film projects on their dock: the aforementioned Cleopatra with Paramount Pictures, Rogue Squadron at Lucasfilm, and Disney and Wonder Woman 3 also with Gadot. THR notes that Jenkins and writer Matthew Robinson (Love and Monsters) have been developing Rogue Squadron for “over a year,” meaning the Star Wars film was being worked on even before the news of Cleopatra and Wonder Woman 3 was announced became. There was no way Jenkins would manage three major films at the same time – all of which she also directs.

While Rogue Squadron is currently sticking to its release date near Christmas 2023, it’s always possible for another Star Wars movie to take its place. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is developing one that he also co-wrote with writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns from 1917 and Last Night in Soho. Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm Presidents Kevin Feige and Kathleen Kennedy are working on a different idea. Another Star Wars film was developed with Sleight director JD Dillard and Luke Cage writer Matt Owens. And of course there is a whole new trilogy in the hands of Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson, which took place back in February of this year.

In addition to the December 2023 date, Disney has also booked December 2025 and December 2027 for two more Star Wars films.

Meanwhile, the future of Star Wars is brighter on the series side. The Book of Boba Fett – internally referred to as The Mandalorian Season 2.5 – is expanding the franchise from the end of December. This is followed by the prequel series Obi-Wan Kenobi with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader, the Diego Luna-led Rogue One spin-off Andor and The Mandalorian Season 3 in 2022. Three other series are also included in development: Ahsoka with Rosario Dawson and Christensen, High Republic set The Acolyte by Russian Dolls Leslye Headland, and Lando via Lando Calrissian by Justin Simien from Dear White People.
