It looks like Lucasfilm are cleaning house before making new announcements at Star Wars Celebration. Variety are reporting that the studio have once again shelved Patty Jenkins’ ‘Rogue Squadron’. The film had been announced back in December of 2020 but was later removed from Disney’s release schedule due to Jenkins’ work load. Warner Bros. then scrapped Jenkins’ third ‘Wonder Woman’ and it was hinted that ‘Rogue Squadron’ was back on again. Now the film is no longer in development.
But ‘Rogue Squadron’ isn’t the only film project to disappear. The Kevin Feige produced film, that was to be written by Michael Waldron, has also bit the dust. This is most likely due to Feige’s time commitment to Marvel Studios. There is also no movement on Rian Johnson’s proposed trilogy and his contracts elsewhere will keep him away for a while.
Taika Waititi’s film is still on the cards but appears to be moving slowly with the director himself admitting that he hadn’t broken the story yet. If it does happen it is being reported that Waititi would also have a co-starring role.
This leaves the film rumoured to be directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy from a script by Damon Lindelof (‘Watchmen’) and Justin Britt-Gibson (‘Counterpart’) to be the one most likely be be announced at Star Wars Celebration as the film being released in 2025.
