“Rogue Squadron”, the new “Star Wars” movie by Patty Jenkins, has been postponed.
The film should start production in 2022, but that start date won’t happen, which could also affect the movie’s target release date of December 22, 2023, reports Variety.com.
“Rogue Squadron” was the first cinema appearance in the space opera series since Disney and Lucasfilm completed the nine-film saga of the Skywalker clan with “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” from 2019.
Since then, Lucasfilm has focused more on expanding its “Star Wars” streaming offering with Disney Plus hit “The Mandalorian” and an upcoming series in which Ewan McGregor will 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 spin-off with the character portrayed by Rosario Dawson in ‘The Mandalorian’. Lucasfilm is also busy finalizing Indiana Jones 5, which was also recently delayed when Harrison Ford injured his shoulder.
Jenkins is best known for directing Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984. She is slated to direct the third film in the DC Films series. Jenkins was also involved in a Paramount drama about Cleopatra that starred her ‘Wonder Woman’ leading actress Gal Gadot. Jenkins also directed Monster, which earned Charlize Theron an Oscar.
The ‘Star Wars’ delay is due to scheduling conflicts with Jenkins. “Rogue Squadron” has been removed from Disney’s production schedule.
