For a while now, the theatrical future of Star Wars has remained unclear. We have live-action TV series on Disney+, but as far as what’s coming to the big screen, it’s hazy. Lucasfilm has announced a few potential films, but none of them are a lock. That includes Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron. The movie doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s still in active development. Here’s everything we know about Rogue Squadron so far.
This Star Wars film is called Rogue Squadron.
Rogue Squadron‘s Plot
We know very little about the plot of Rogue Squadron so far. But one sneaky detail did make it into StarWars.com’s writeup about the film. “The story will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy.” Future era, you say? It seems likely, then, that the film is set after The Rise of Skywalker.
Behind the Scenes
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will direct Rogue Squadron. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced the exciting news at a Disney shareholders event in 2020. As of May 2023, Kennedy said the project is still on the books.
